Just preordered it via Anime-Expo. Cost was $121 US. Guess it gets released in December, which means I won't see it until February. :lol: :lol: :-(

Eeehh. He's really well designed but he just feels so light and cheap. I'm still on the Iron Hide/Ratchet kick when it comes to "best." It's a good blend of cartoon accuracy, quality build, solid transformation, size, and posablity.

I'm hoping hound doesn't feel cheap and plasticy like WJ does. That's probably my biggest gripe with the guy, and being that Hound is roughly the same size, I'm worried he will be.

If you don’t mind my asking, how much did you pay for your wheel jack? It sounds like you may have gotten a ko, not an official one, by the description you give. The one and only complaint I have on wheel jack is the lack of plastic tires.

The tire transformation does look cool, but I still feel let down by his looks. If you’re gung-ho about the cartoon look and can afford the $$$ then I guess it works. Big no for me. Content with my Maketoys Gundog.

Don't remember what exactly I paid but I grabbed him off BBTS for $80-100 so I doubt he's a KO but that was kinda my thought initially because it's just so....light. nothing broke or damaged during transformation and he holds poses fine. I dunno, was just underwhelmed with him, is all.

By the visuals I would think that you are intelligent enough to SEE that it has nothing to do with hound, but new pics of this figure that was just released... but they are transformers and this is a transformers website and THAT is what they have in common.

Easy now. No need to condescend.

Indeed it is a Transformers website, but we do have a system in place.
Your post would be better suited for the War for Cybertron: Siege thread, seeing as that is a War for Cybertron: Siege toy.

This thread is specific to MP-47 Hound

No, condescending is DEFINITELY appropriate, just as you will see other figures talked about within other posts... it happens everyday.
So please dont come at me as if you are the big bad monitizer.

Mp shockwaves legs still have a better transformation over hounds having a box to put his condensing wheel in. The wheel trick on generations g2 prime was pretty neat and this might take it up a notch (as long as rolling isn't hindered) but either way...
Step 1. Have a hole in your box
Step 2. Put your wheel in the box
(steps being omitted is perfectly fine as far as transformer instructions go)

Its very inappropriate and horrible of you to treat an awesome brobot like Cobo that way...…..




but I laughed for like five minutes straight when I read that line, god help me....


Yeah, the wheel trick is cool, but, as I've said a million times (even I'm getting sick of it), they shouldn't be able to do it, because the **** tires should be made of **** rubber!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've had a couple too many beers tonight.....

I have to agree, I think there's a lot more going on with this figure than folks are giving him credit for... now... how much of that is needlessly complicated like the new MP Prime's legs hoovering up the whole sides of his cab... or how crazy intricate Sunstreaker is... well... I think that's more-or-less the new "level" of MP we're getting with the G1s. If anything I've found the Beast Wars MPs a bit of a refresher. Sure Dinobot and Megatron got a *lot* of panel work going on... but there' something... intuitive about it.

I had to sit down for a good 10 minutes trying to remember how to unpeg Sunstreaker's backpack after he was sitting on the shelf for a long time. Nevermind his weird locking elbow/wrist thing.

I'm excited for Hound, though I'm disappointed the rag-top just "clips" on his back, I was hoping it was going to fold up into something clever. Still think I'd rather have Ravage's Cage... We'll see I guess.

Hey Cyberpath, just letting you know I placed those scans and newsed them in the Figure King Magazine thread with you given the credit.

And looking at the scans, they really did do the interior on Hound justice. It's wonderful

Postby Lando Tucker » Tue Jun 25, 2019 10:56 am

Oh, Goddamn it...why did I watch this? Why!?!? I saw the reveal, and thought: 'Ooh, nice! Hound hasn't been done 83,462 times before, and the price should be at either the Ironhide/Ratchet or Inferno/Grapple price band.' Then, of course, I saw the price, sighed loudly and decide to stick to my stoic resolution not to buy any more Masterpiece figures (unless they do Added).

Then I watched the video. The wheels? That's class. But a Spike with articulation. And a holographic figure to remind me of watching Transformers in 1985 and every Transformer had a bespoke super-power. Even that random hood that came out of nowhere and makes no sense. Hound's face shield. It's pretty sweet.

But...is it worth £130 sweet? Like a whole wave of Marvel Legends sweet. I don't know. Anyone else conflicted here, and when is the damn thing released?
