That pretty much says it in the title. Thanks staff news member William-James88 and to Takara Tomy's website we have a great image of Transformers Masterpiece MP-47 Hound with his underwater face mask, even posed as he was in the classic G1 episode when he originally used it. Please keep in mind this is the Takara Tomy listing and the Hasbro release is available through our link at Entertainment Earth.

It's just amazing the thought put into some of these Masterpiece editions, the amount of fan service can be far reaching and no doubt intends to bring a smile to some of the most long time hardened fans. It's also one of those little touches that helps cushion the blow of the sizeable price tag. Share your view with the Seibertron crew and let everyone know if this is the final straw that breaks the camel's back in your decision on this piece.

This is cool until I seen the Price at $169.00 ... :BOOM: These MP's just keep getting higher and not at all worth it. I have paid a lot for MP figures and it is just getting stupid high for what your getting anymore. I know many are going to say if you don't want to pay that, oh well stop collecting them. However, it's just funny to me when I see the asking prices of these newer figures. I'll wait for a sale or will pass, no big deal on this one to me. ;)^

I find it amusing Hound required an underwater breathing mask despite the fact he's a robot & doesn't breathe air. Aah the silliness of 80's cartoons :HEADHURTS:

Hound looks to be on the level of Ironhide, an intuitive transformation that leaves you wondering just how you did it.

As was previously stated Amazon Japan locked out a bunch of international pre-orders a few nights ago.99% of the time that means it would be several months before AJ would open up orders for toys again. Thankfully that wasn't the case this time.

$118 via Anime-export, if you're patient. Never had issues with them. Just sayin'.

I had issues with my MP dinobot and they... sent me a new one a few months later, it all worked out well and I recomend them fully.

Their shipping has gone up though.

pfft, called it back with mp 44, prices are going way up and never coming back down; way to kill off a good chunk of your customer-base, idiots >:oP

that being said, he actually looks cool, and a toy accurate deco would probably look nice :-?

I'm still waiting for them to resolve my account issues so that I can have a $250+ order shipped, but so far the just say they can't help and then ignore my emails... So I'd only recommend them if you're sure you won't be needing to contact them in case something doesn't work out

In that case, you should Paypal claim the shit out of them. I do hope you are within the delays.

Hound is consistently smaller than Ironhide, in the cartoon, in the Sunbow size charts, and now even in the SIEGE line, where Hasbro is paying especially close attention to relative character scale. Hound is the same height as the likes of Prowl and Sideswipe, more or less.


I stand corrected.

Either way, I'm still pretty eh on the guy for $160. I JUST got Wheeljack for roughly half that price and this guy is in the same league. There's no way he either comes with enough accessories, or dev/parts costs have gone up THAT much.

I know Takara is Japan but are any of these toys made in china (not near a box to be able to look) Do tariffs have any effect on this?

Well, with my recent doll purchases, I have absolutely no rights to complain about the price.

However, I found the MPs to be just NOT fun to play with. I never even bothered to transform MP-36 Megatron. I want my transformers to be quick and fun to transform and MPs have been really annoying to play with recently. Especially the MPMs. So will I buy Hound? It will really depend on video reviews.

Lol, my MP-36 is still in the box. Kinda scared to open him!

Do you want my opinion? Open him, pose him really nice, transform him a few times, then put him an a nice display. That way, you can properly experience the figure ;)

I like my figures to be complex, time consuming, but fluid and intuitive. I believe MP-36 to be the embodiment of that opinion.

If MP Hound will be the same, then that's great :D

Glad to help! ;)

I have an extremely unpopular opinion in that I hate keeping a figure boxed honestly. Keeping it boxed is no different to me than looking at a photo of it.

That's why I immediately open the box to get to the figure. Let me feel the creation and praise those who have brought it to me, and enjoy it for times to come.

I will keep the box (especially those with lovely artwork, like Siege), but that's about it.

I hope others see where I am coming from, because I would love for them to properly enjoy that new MP Hound ;)

I have close to 200 Ttansformers, and only a handful of them are unopened--mainly because they are duplicates or redecos. I open, transform, and display all my MPs, but unlike you, I take my time. Just weird like that, I guess. Save the best for last, or something like that. I still have MP-36, MP-39, and MPM-7 still unopened. Hound is definitely going to be my next purchase. Probably open it in 2021. :lol:

In that case, you should Paypal claim the **** out of them. I do hope you are within the delays.

Unfortunately it's way too late for that, since you have to put in your preorder months ahaead of the release. So by the time a figure releases, all the paypal and credit card protection programms are no longer inside the time frame to launch a claim :BANG_HEAD:

Just noticed an interesting line in the Pulse description that we haven't seen a picture of yet:

a convertible top for vehicle mode that can also attach to robot mode as a shield or backpack


I wonder what that looks like. :-?

I used them only ONCE, to preorder the Nendoroid Kizuna Ai. It went well, but the fact that it took EIGHT FREAKING MONTHS made me nervous as hell. Because if there was a fokkup, I was fokt. Your story further proves my fear.

So, no. I'm never preordering anything that require a payment up front. Ever.

Dangit. Here I was all grateful that I was going to save money this year because Takara-bro wasn't putting anything on the shelves I wanted, and then they pull this one. :ic$:

*sigh* Good-bye, $160.
