    I love Hound. I’m ecstatic to get him. He’s always been one of my favorite secondary characters. Also, he’s not red or blue

    Hound is, and has been since I was a wee lad, one of the coolest and most interesting bots from the cartoon. 75 days 23 hours and 11 minutes away!

    Getting a release now doesn't mean anything about popularity otherwise we'd already have Jazz, Mirage and Cliffjumper. Or do ppl care even less about those 3 seeing as they aren't out yet?

    It's all about licensing but to answer your question he's a unique silhouette and a completely different colour to the sea of red and blue.

    Hound stands out to me for his warm personality, which was great even by Autobot standards. He was also one of the more interesting-looking Autobots in the Season 1 roster.

    Somebody has got to be last...and Hound isn't that. Hound isn't the most popular character...but he is popular enough to get an MP release. And still ahead of some other prominent characters yet to be made.

    Hound was a pretty cool dude from the show. I always though that he was gonna get the designation of sidekick but that went to Bumblebee. Cool under pressure and really affable, he was kinda like a big brother sort in my eyes. I'm glad he is coming, December can't get here fast enough! :)

    Well, one thing’s for certain: Hound is way more popular than Windsweeper, who will most likely never get an MP. :)

    I said the same about Skids. After a bunch of Skids fans came out and gave me the “ what fer “ I learned to STFU and not piss on anyone’s parade. One day , you’ll learn the same lesson . ( I love Hound BTW , can’t wait to get him )

    Well... by that logic, I guess Jazz must be a peon character as well..

    exactly, because your statement of "took them so long to get an MP therefore he is not important" makes no sense.

    Yes, I get it with Jazz, but the same thing can be said about any of the remaining G1 characters- Mirage, Windcharger, etc.. Sideswipe did not have a big role in the series but he was one of the first with an MP. All I'm saying is that time it takes to get an MP doesn't equate to the importance of the character, which is what that poster was trying to say.

    In the case of Porsche, I think it's less about money and more that they just dont want to be associated with TFs. Whether that's because they're stuck up pricks and think they're too good for TFs or the whole 'war toys' aspect, I'm not entirely sure. Maybe both...

    Anyway, back to Hound.

    Has the rifle only made an appearance at that one show? Hound hasn’t been displayed since then, has he?

    Hound was one of the first 3 Binaltech/Alternators made, a hugely popular line so...
