Review by JoshB
Hound was the third vehicle released in the Transformers Alternators line and the first vehicle that was not a sports car. Hound is a 2003 Jeep Wrangler Sport. In vehicle mode, Hound features rubber tires, independent suspension, opening doors and hood, detailed interior, and a storage compartment in the spare tire that holds his gun. Hound does not feature tandem steering as the other Alternators do.
Robot mode is a little odd at first, but he grows on you. I don't personally like the way they handled the back of the robot. Things just kind of hang off his back. Otherwise, he is pretty cool and fairly articulated. He can hold a small gun in his hand that is stored in the spare tire. Hound is also the first Alternator that has a gun that is not from the engine.
The rest is pretty typical Alternators fare: realistic vehicle mode, quality construction, intricate transformation. Not much wrong with him. He looks great and is fun to play with.
