We knew Takara's Transformers MP-47 Masterpiece Hound looked good and that he was pricey. What we didn't know was where those wheels went. Well, we know now. A new video reveals what might just be the best leg transformation of all time with the wheel collapsing into his legs. The parts count is so high that even his wheels are made of multiple parts, accounting for the higher level of show accuracy and price.

You can see a breakdown of the leg transformation below the full video. The original video was region blocked so TFND mirrored it on Facebook.

This toy is available at every single online retailer you can think of, including Hasbro Pulse for $169.99. That version is the Hasbro release which will come in an extra box with English writing.

There is no level above wheel jack. While he isn't my favorite MP, I do still thi k he is the best one made so far.

It's cool and clever and all but it still isn't worth the asking price. He still takes the cartoon accuracy thing way too far (the bland and weirdly tapered thighs in particular annoy me) and honestly I'd rather the partscount and price had been brought down with the wheels being on his legs like the old G1 toy.

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.

I don't get what this have to do with Hound.

Anyway, this look amazing for Hound! Still not preordering, but I'm not writing him off either.

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.
Forgive me for expecting intelligence. Krimzeek might be active here

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.
You be eazy.
Free your mind and your ass will follow

That is a pretty dang nice wheel trick!

But I am bummed that it's being used to hide wheels. I wish that magic was used like they used it in Artfire

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 fucking tires should be made of fucking rubber!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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