    This fits with Animated Bulkhead's big military armored transport alt, but NOT Prime Bulkhead's civilian truck.

    A bit disappointed that it's not Bulkhead but Hound is fine by me.

    So was I the only one who spontaneously thought "Octane" when the vehicle was first revealed?

    ...until they confirmed it was an Autobot at least.

    Well, I'm fine with this. Don't care much for Bulkhead. Just hope that Slingshot's the only placeholder name this time around. Hate how they keep playing musical chairs with combiner/gestalt member names.

    I did'nt think of the vehicle might have been Bulkhead. But it was a great idea.

    After 3 movies I've learned that it's just a name, nothing more. It's not going to have anything to do with the Jeep from G1. So why do you get all worked up when you see a G1 name slapped on some random vehicle? The only characters in the Bayverse based on G1 are the 2 poster boys Optimus Prime & Bumblebee. So you can toss your ridiculous G1 obsession right out the window. There is no G1 here!

    He'll probably get killed in 5 seconds anyway.

    I did think "turncoat" Octane when I saw it but I guess Hound is just as pointless to slap on it. As has already been said the names don't signify much unless youre Op or Bee.

    I like his big Autobot insignia on his cabin door. Hopefully they'll make him a lover of all things Terrestrial . . . that was his signature trade. It would be sweet.

    This isn't G1, this is an entirely separate universe so Hound can be any colour the designers choose. Why haven't people gotten this by now?

    Really glad it's Hound and not bulkhead, I don't hate bulkhead just don't really like the name or the character. It's a nice modern update and let's face it with new humans the transformers are still gonna get very little screen time in their own movie.

    Gotta love seeing the words "childhood raped" thrown around so loosely, given the context of the term and it's grown people using it to relate it to a character being changed from a jeep to another military vehicle. Didn't even get through the first page of the thread, thankfully i'll abandon this baby fest.

    I don't really care what names they decide to use, but I do find it weird from a branding standpoint that after getting kids familiar with a large friendly green Autobot truck named Bulkhead for the last 5 years, they decide to go with a name that hasn't been used familiarly for a long time.

    As far as Drift being the Bugatti and Slingshot being the Corvette, that's a headscratcher as well. If anything, I'd flip the names around. The Veyron is four-wheel drive. I don't even know if you could drift in that thing. Though that site doesn't cite sources for the names, so who knows?

    K really like them bringing more G1 characters back but disagree with this. This should be Bulkhead out and out. Looks like him and would bring in the new ppl and kids who hes a fan favorite. Also bring headmasters to the films!!!!!

    They're Drift and Slingshot. Drift is the Bugatti and Slingshot is the Corvette.

    I think a good design would be to use Ironhide's face and inspiration and combine it with a bulldog.
