    Mmm.

    Well, irregardless of my opinion of the man or others, Nelson isn't. So if he says it's Hound, it's Hound.

    I love Jeeps and I really love Hound! But Oshkosh is known for strong and reliable military vehicles. :rock  I look at this Update and I Really like it! I am SO SO happy that my Favorite transformer will be in the 4th film. THANK YOU MR BAY!!! :thumb 

    One thing though - please make hounds head look more like the G1 Hound with a Movie update.

    Hound it is. Nice. I look forward to seeing his bot mode. Hopefully it's a bit more graceful than his alt mode (not that it's a bad vehicle, it's just not as sporty looking as a military Jeep).

    well, as a member of the US Army, I can tell you that vehicle is just a regular transport. It's an all-purpose heavy transport. The back end of it is modular, it can be equipped with seats to carry troops, a tarp to cover them, an armored back, a giant pick-up bed, and various other utilitarian devices. Sometimes it's used to haul smaller vehicles (like a humvee) out if they get stuck in mud, etc.

    We don't really use it in combat areas anymore. It's kind of an all-purpose transport used in areas that are deemed safe. It's no good against IEDs.

    So really it's quite similar to the old Jeep....it's not heavily armored, more of a utility vehicle. It's not fancy at all, just a workhorse.

    Not a bad choice. It's NOT an armored personnel carrier, which is what Bulkhead has been.

    I would have preferred a regular current-model jeep to this but it's not a bad choice.

    How much of a difference would this make if it was "Bulkhead" instead of "Hound".

    Had a feeling it'd be Hound and not Bulkhead. Awesome!

    Not much. But I have to imagine there are quite a few guys in their 30's like me who fondly remember Hound from when we were kids and think it's cool that some version of him is in the new movie.

    And we have money to spend too.
