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.

I wonder if Megatron will be back

N. on May 31, 2013


Im pretty sure they announced theres a new villian

Schuyler on May 31, 2013


Haven't followed it to well but a new villain might be a good idea

N. on May 31, 2013


Specially since Optimus Removed Megatrons head & spine from his body.

Schuyler on May 31, 2013


Yea since Optimus Removed Megatrons Head & SPINE from his body.

Schuyler on May 31, 2013


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

N. on May 31, 2013


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

Galvatron or maybe Shockwave?

mooreworthy on Jun 2, 2013


Shockwave was killed in the last one.

Double face palm! Totally forgot that.

mooreworthy on Jun 3, 2013


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...

Thanks for that

N. on May 31, 2013


Galvatron?! LOL.

DAVIDPD on Jun 1, 2013


Probably he will be back. And probably as Galvatron.

Maybe some actual transformers would be nice for once.

Jimmy Love on May 31, 2013


finally a badass truck. they need a bronco.

Linkfx on May 31, 2013


Although I hope the film does well, I'm finding it hard to get excited by a fourth go.

Quanah on May 31, 2013


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.

AnotherDan on May 31, 2013


I agree. I'd rather see a reboot.

DAVIDPD on Jun 1, 2013


can't wait to see Voltron in this!

Carpola on Jun 1, 2013


And Leader 1!

mooreworthy on Jun 2, 2013


And Kevin Bacon.

Do the robot forms still look like pincushions?

cobrazombie on Jun 1, 2013


You mean badass pincushions?

Winky on Jul 11, 2013


Look! A truck!

Bl00dwerK on Jun 2, 2013


What the hell vehicle is that? Old school = Jeep. Bayformers = Mahershnafur

Jimmy Love on Jun 2, 2013


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)
