While we knew for sometime that this next film would be bringing new Autobot’s into the mix, I for one did not expect one of my favorites to be added. Autobot Hound has now been officially revealed as a new addition to the team, sporting a very new military design rather than the iconic jeep that he was in the 80s show.
Whit the reveal Michael Bay gives us a tiny little bit of insight with the character.
The always rugged and reliable Hound, one of the Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles from Oshkosh Defense.
For those who dont remember this character from his roots here is a quick recap for you thanks to wikipedia:
A first-generation Autobot, Hound was released into Transformers’ first year – 1984 and was one of the smallest of the standard sized Autobot cars. Hound’s alternate mode is that of a 4X4 military jeep, and comes with three different weapons – a Missile Launcher, a Machine Gun and a Hologram Gun.
Hound is known for his love of the planet Earth, his tracking skills, and the ability to project highly realistic holograms. He secretly wishes to be human.
TRANSFORMERS 4 is set to open in the US on June 27, 2014.
