    I really like the grey prototype of Hound, glad to finally see him given a number. I wasn't as impressed with the painted version which is making me think I may be best waiting for a darker green + toy style version. However that may never eventuate so it's a risk. Decisions!

    I hope he still has the butterfly joints. Makes a huge difference in posing.

    I wish they would stop pinning the hands through. Prime has it, and now Hound too. I just don't see any reason for it.

    Thank whatever God you think exists (bless) that MP Hound is coming. He's the only upcoming figure I have an interest in and he looks fantastic. Real car hood for the chest - YES!

    He looks great in Grey - better than he does in that green to be honest. I'll hold out hope for a toy-accurate green release at some point but those things are released like snails so I won't hold my breath.

    I still HATE the fake wheels on the feet - but if there's no option to keep those hidden I can always snap them off. :)

    Super weird that the original show had Hound painted but in Wondercon he's unpainted? Anyways he looks great.

    If you read back some posts, apparently there were plastic tolerance issues with the way the shoulders were designed previously, so they have been redesigned. This is the new one, which they still have to hand paint.

    I hate that he's been bumped a few spaces but it was for a good reason, and at least he finally has a number. Hopefully he'll be available around December, because the wait for him has been agony. Crossing fingers for no more delays!

    I am more excited for Hound than any other release for 2019.

    It's those little cylinder things sticking out from the sides of his feet. They're supposed to be the "shrunk-down" wheels you see on the animation model. I also think they look tacky, but they're also pinned at the foot. You could always knock that out and take the piece off.

    Those front parts jutting out (don't know the technical name) in the way probably pose some problems to that joint
