    Well after taking a good break I started this repaint of Wfc Megs into Hound. I needed a hound and always felt like this Megs had a herioc feel to him.
    Hound is a great robot. He loves football and wants to be human.

    I think you did a good job on the paint, but this is no Hound my friend, sorry. However, this is your creation so you are entitled to call him whatever you want. I have to agree with the 2 previous posters, Cosmos or Springer comes to mind more readily simply because of the color scheme. Have you considered doing a WFC Hound out of the FOC Swindle? With your painting ability you should have no trouble going that route if you choose to.

    I can kinda see what you're getting at.

    Whatever you decide to call it, it looks good

    Looks like a great start! I can see how that fits as Hound. It wouldn't be my 1st choice, but this is still really nice!

    There are two things that could be done to this to make it feel a lot more like Hound: cover the moulded-in Decepticon logo on the back with plastic, and find this guy a block shaped head. The Megatron head is just too iconic, and looks nothing like Hound. Otherwise, a really great paint job! on it's own, it actually reminds me of THIS VERSION of Bludgeon, but with the colours reversed.

    Just wanted to say thanks so far and some changes coming soon. The color is based off G1 cartoon Hound and is a cybertron robot. The head works for me I feel like it gives Hound a more modern look. I dont see Cosmos here at all except the color. I would never cover the back on this mold it has way too much detail on this custom I look at it as some awesome cybertron jetpack. Thanks again.

    The detailing is making it a lot more convincing. Maybe a new head?

    Definitely needs a new head, and maybe wheels instead of treads.

    I agree that the head doesn't work for Hound. You paint is spectacular. The colors do work for him, just not the head.

    Thanks fellas but the head is staying for now I look at it like the movie figs they look nothing like the G1 versions but this looks better because at least this has a face like hound just looks a little tuffer which I like.

    To me this looks like Hound has gotten an upgrade. And somehow its weird, but it works.

    All I see is a G2 Megatron, sans camo. But this figure has a phenominal paintjob anyway you'd look at it. I especially like the gold trim, which brings out the militiristic vibe you were going for. If you added a silver star on his chest, it would look very patriotic, even if it's not an earth mode. Well, there are stars molded on WFC Prime's wheels, so it could have some significance.
