First Look: 'Transformers 4' Rugged Autobot Hound from Michael Bay

May 31, 2013

Autobot Hound

Another day, another Autobot revealed from Transformers 4, the final film in the franchise for director Michael Bay before handing off the blockbuster series to another filmmaker. We've already seen two all-new Autobots along with a redesign for Optimus Prime, and there's also a new/old vehicle form for Bumblebee as well. Now Bay has taken to his site again to unveil the Autobot Hound. Usually depicted as a Jeep, Bay describes the character as "The always rugged and reliable Hound, one of the Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles from Oshkosh Defense." Wonder what kind of weapons Hound may be hiding in the back.

Here's the first look at the Autobot Hound from Michael Bay's Transformers 4, via

Transformers 4

Michael Bay is directing Transformers 4 as his last film in the blockbuster series before handing the franchise off to another director. No plot details are known yet, but Bay says, "We start four years later and there’s a reason why we’re meeting a new cast. We keep the 'Transformers' the way they were. It’s just four years later. There’s a reason the Transformers are redesigned. We’re trying to broaden the franchise and give it more places to go." The new cast includes Mark Wahlberg, T.J. Miller, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles and Li Bingbing and the film arrives on June 27th, 2014.

    • Schuyler

      • N.
        Haven't followed it to well but a new villain might be a good idea
        • Schuyler
          Specially since Optimus Removed Megatrons head & spine from his body.
        • Schuyler
          Yea since Optimus Removed Megatrons Head & SPINE from his body.

            Yeah I forgot about that most of the films have been forgetful for the most part I just hope this one is some what changed but it's doubtful
          • Schuyler
            I hope not, even though there is no real story... I really enjoy the Transformers Movies, just watching those giant alien robots fight each other over and over again, blowing shit up. The second one was good i can give people that one, but the third one was epic... the last hr is gigantic action scene. I love the action, its not going to change and im happy with that
      • mooreworthy
        Galvatron or maybe Shockwave?
        • harrisonsl
          Shockwave was killed in the last one.
          • mooreworthy
            Double face palm! Totally forgot that.
    • AnotherDan
      I believe I read somewhere that with the death of Megatron, Bay would be unveiling Galvatron. Somehow I seriously doubt that Unicron will have a hand in Galvatron's birth / existence though...
      • N.
        Thanks for that
        • DAVIDPD
          Galvatron?! LOL.
    • Lagoya
      He will return as Galvatron!
    • majinbabyvegeta M
      Probably he will be back. And probably as Galvatron.
  • Maybe some actual transformers would be nice for once.
  • Linkfx
    finally a badass truck. they need a bronco.
  • Although I hope the film does well, I'm finding it hard to get excited by a fourth go.
  • AnotherDan
    Good for you, Bay. Another Transformers movie, another bunch of rubbish cars that have nothing to do with the original designs of the Transformers, just so that you can *modernise* their look. You could've stuck with current military jeeps...even if you went for a Hummer, that would've looked better than a vehicle that has absolutely no relevance to the character of Hound. I know that I'm just going to loathe this latest movie. Bring on the reboot is all I can say.
    • I agree. I'd rather see a reboot.
  • can't wait to see Voltron in this!
    • mooreworthy
      And Leader 1!
      • capitandelespacio
        And Kevin Bacon.
  • cobrazombie
    Do the robot forms still look like pincushions?
    • Winky
      You mean badass pincushions?
  • Bl00dwerK
    Look! A truck!
  • What the hell vehicle is that? Old school = Jeep. Bayformers = Mahershnafur
  • Akirakorn
    Seriously Bay? Seriously? He was an Army Jeep in the original, and the Humvee replace the jeep... and humvees are pretty cool already... so... uhh... WHY!!!!!!!!! Is it too late to start a petition to have him changed to a Humvee? (No not the mass-market H1, H2, or H3)
