    A good memory plus research skills plus obsessive tendencies equals me spending way too much time looking into things like this. :D

    Hound looks so much better than OP V3 and BB V2...

    The only nitpick I have for MP Hound is his neck joint. Not crazy how it swings into place with the screw showing.

    I'm expecting him to wind up being around the $100 mark with the AJ 30% discount. Not ideal, but I'll take it.

    Did I see this right and see that Hound is MP-47? I think that's it at the bottom right of this pic.

    I appreciate the effort. It's almost cartoon accurate, but man, those feet and that back.....damn I can ignore the back, but man, those feet are terribad.

    Given Bumblebee is 13000 yen, I'd be expecting 16-18k for Hound. The lower end of that will get you just over US$100 with a 30% discount. But it's the new Takara so probably the higher end. Also, I doubt we'll get this till Q1 202, given it's Feb and this is only a grey prototype.

    This guy really is the best of the recent G1 MP's, going back to Megatron, maybe even earlier. Certainly, the cleanest looking since Inferno.
    Not including Beast Wars of course - that spider-bot looks sleek!

    Hound certainly looks solid so far in bot mode, but I am waiting to see how much of a hit his vehicle mode is going to take

    Hmmn true. a week ago I would have said not to worry as Takara would make every effort to do it right, but after seeing Bumblebee'a chibi alt, and his mushed up feet... who knows.
    I'm not too worried though. I have FansToys Hound who I will probably put into jeep mode for display and the official can be bot mode. FT Willis is a pretty sweet looking jeep, so even if Takaramessess up this, I should be right.

    You know what happened, I saw the pins and thought it but saw that somebody else had pointed it out already. I get beaten to the punch by just about everyone on here lol. Regardless, all that matters is that he has the accessory. I want a photo shoot ;)

    I'm not worried about the details of the jeep mode (even though on initial release those details will be painted over to hide them) but more the size. I was put off the 3rd party Hounds as all the vehicles were way larger than they should have been next to the regular MP cars. I'd give Takara the benefit of the doubt regarding some transformation wizardry fixing that but recent examples have made me realise they're not infallible.

    Judging by previous designs the vehicle will probably be quite dense and compact. Robot forms usually expand (e.g. Ironhide, MP-36).

    I'm really pumped for these releases! They look great! Except for Bee. He can stay and guard the base (TT Headquarters)... PERMANENTLY.

    Arrrggghhh!!! My OCD is killing me here. Hound's right leg needs to be rotated outward slightly to match the direction of his foot. It looks unnatural. Please excuse my disorder. Lol.
