Thanks to MichaelBay.com, we now know that the name "Hound" has been assigned to the large green truck shown in this week's set photos from the filming of Transformers 4. Unfortunately, this is not Bulkhead as many fans had hoped or assumed.

Good to see a new type of vehicle being represented, but I was hoping this would be revealed as Bulkhead considering how he ties into the past 6 years of media.

UNfortunately? I'm glad it's not Bulkhead. He's a character that was created to appeal to younger kids who watch the cartoons, not the audience the movies are intended for.

Awesome. I'm very ok with this being Hound. I would prefer the names go to classic characters rather than newbies. It's also very nice seeing the Autobots get something other than sports cars. The RC truck and Laptop were cool though (as alt. modes I mean).

I would have preferred it as a Jeep as well. In fact, any type of Jeep would have been fine.

But as I usually say, different continuities, different whatevers. ;)

Someone said that this mode would have suited Bulkhead better. Also, Hound was usually a subtle guy, with his hollogram gimmick and whatnot. Still, I'm looking forward to see how this character will turn out in the movie verse.

Also, this is a great vehicle mode. I'm looking forward for a robot mode.
I also hope for a good toy to go with it.

Bay himself has said on numerous occasions that the movies are made with kids in mind. That suggests to me that he has a weird idea of what's appropriate for kids and what isn't, but that's beside the point.

Because the movies cater to an audience that likes to see dogs humping other dogs, or "Wheelie" humping a female human's leg?

This is a great alt mode for good ole Bulkhead, and if indeed he was originally created to appeal to younger kids watching cartoons, the live action movies don't necessarily hold characters to their cartoon form.

At least this is another example of having a new character in the Bayverse.

I agree: his idea of "for the kids" is definitely twisted.

A military vehicle Autobot! Finally!! Seriously, how'd it take 4 damn movies for Michael Bay of all people to make a military vehicle a good guy?

I wouldn't be surprised if Hound is just a temporary codename given to throw us off, and he really turns out to be Bulkhead.

Either way, I don't care, I'm just glad it's a green military vehicle.

I'm glad it's not Bulkhead. I have Bulkhead fatigue. Bulkhead isn't even a particularly interesting character :puts on flame-proof suit:

How so? Violence in cartoons was considered appropriate for kids in the 90s. Why should it be any different?

Exhibit A) Sexual innuendo taken too far (Alice, Wheelie, and one of the first scenes of Dark of the Moon are prime examples).

Exhibit B) Language, to the point where even the ever famous explicative (you know, the "F" one) was uttered by Mikaela when Sam was "killed" in Revenge of the Fallen.

I'd like to see these quotes where Bay has said these movies are made with kids in mind.

Is anyone able to provide them?
