Scout’s honor


Get ready to explore the furthest reaches of the earth with the magnificent Masterpiece MP-47 Hound figure from Takara Tomy Transformers. This entry in the Masterpiece line represents a tremendously faithful recreation of the beloved Autobot scout, adding extra depth to the character and his legacy. Whether he’s exploring the earth for the fun of it or protecting his friends in battle, Hound is ready to join your masterpiece Transformers collection.


Featuring significant attention to detail, this figure looks as if he stepped straight from the screen. Hound’s G1 cartoon accurate color scheme of olive green, gunmetal gray and gold highlights is fully intact in his robot mode, while his overall look is completely modernized. His alternate mode—a military jeep with a removable tan canopy—looks good in both form and function. This remastered version of Hound is also fully poseable and extremely articulate, while his alternate face plates provide a variety of emotions for when he’s happy (smiling) or furious (screaming).


This beautiful masterpiece scaled figure stands 6.5” tall in robot mode and is loaded with accessories like Hound’s hologram technology, alternate face plates and more. Hound’s hologram gun is here, along with a hologram effect for the gun and a fully articulated hologram version of Spike you can use to recreate your own legendary scenes from the cartoon. The real Spike is also included, along with a spare gas tank, a side mirror and a detachable gas can for Hound’s alt mode. Spike fits right into the seats of Hound’s alt mode, while his hologram gun fits securely on the back of the vehicle. Hound transforms intuitively between modes while offering a significant value via his accessories and durable construction.

"Great, But Fragile"

BE CAREFUL. More than any other masterpiece transformer I own, this guy needs a delicate touch. He looks great in robot and alt mode. Basically perfect. But there are some pretty small hinges on the legs and you need to be extra careful not to stress them. Oddly his neck does not peg into the roof in robot mode, which can be kinda weird but it looks fine honestly. Paint is fantastic and accuracy is amazing. Just, again, be careful.

"Most toon accurate"

Bravo TT, he’s beautifully accurate to the S1 cartoon more so than the Fans toys (my second favorite Hound. I couldn’t be happier with this guy in both modes. As the other review said though just transform with care.

"Great figure all around"

Can't say enough about this figure. Best Takara MP in a while.
Aesthetics/Sculpt 4.5 stars. Sculp is spot on. Proportions great in both modes. Paint is a lil flat. Could have used a lil metallic fleck or sheen. Otherwise perfect.
Engineering 5 stars. Fun, surprising intuitive transformation. Plastic feels light with small hinges but they are all surprisingly strong and all the tabs and bits fits in a way that reinforces the figure's structure.
Accessories 5 stars. Lots of fun bits with storage for them bot on the bot in both modes and in the soft top. Finally a Spike that is more size accurate and doesn't fall apart.

Highly Recommend

"Broke on second transformation!"

An Onion isn't kidding - the back door panel that holds his feet together in vehicle mode snapped off with very little force the second time I transformed him. Hadn't been out of the box two hours and now he's going straight in the trash.

"A great figure but where is his gun?"

This is a great figure, the transformation is very cool but he is missing his gun, blaster, laser whatever you want to call it, the other MP versions of this figure, Fans Toys, TFC, Make Toys all include a rifle even the G1 figure had a rifle. I was disappointed to see this very important piece missing from the figure.

"Nailed it"

This Hound ticks all my boxes.

Looks great as a robot. Everything tabs together and makes a solid toy with great articulation and no real kibble. Only a steering wheel.

Looks great as a Jeep. They really hit this as hard as the robot mode. I was expecting it to be good, but it almost looks like a model in it's level of detail. It is solid. Everything tabs in and there are no inherent weak points in the use as a toy Jeep outside the plastic tires not rolling on smooth surfaces.

Engineering is top notch. If you were impressed with the solid nature of Sunstreaker, and the general appreciation of how every scrap of unseen interior was packed in both modes with bits that moved intuitively between modes to secure firmly, then Hound will please you there.

Accessories are plentiful and no real concern of mine.

His paint job is great. Careful. Paint chips. We all understand that paint chips are part of masterpiece and care is required. I have escaped any paint chipping in a dozen transformations, but I am very experienced.

Buy it. If you don't then you don't need a Hound. This is the definitive Hound. Doesn't get any better for a collector.

"So delicate!"

This guy looks great. Unfortunately, he is also unspeakably fragile. Both a leg panel and a foot panel broke off during my first transform of him. I am not at all inexperienced... I get that some of these are delicate, but this guy is just absurd. The connection points that the pieces were to pivot on are less than a millimeter thick. How is that plastic supposed to hold up?

"Beautiful but brittle"

This figure looks great in both modes. A perfect cartoon representation. However the materials are cheap, thin, and easily breakable. Mine arrived cracked and broke again while transforming. I keep my figures in bot mode so I could glue them into place, but these cant be flipped back and forth. Insane kid gloves need to be used.

Overall, I am very happy with this release. The "floating head" actually does fine. The Jeep mode is nicely done--i kept him in this mode for a few days because I liked it so much---BUT I accidentally broke off that back door panel during transformation (my fault) so I won't be transforming him back....le sigh. Just a bit too delicate in that joint. Didn't even hear it break, just came off like a piece of soft cheese. The other foot I did just fine. That being said, I still think it's great. Paint, accessories, overall feel. Definitely a favorite. I still think Sunstreaker is the best I've seen on all fronts. Just be sure not to mix up the steps when doing the feet on Hound. Watch a video and study the instructions carefully. It's so good I might buy it again. Just kidding. 160? Nope. If I was rich--yes. Definitely worth a go.

"Brittle Sloppy Mess"

He looks like Hound but is poor quality. Paint applications are sloppy and thick. There are sprue marks everywhere and numerous hairline cracks at key joints on the feet and neck where the plastic is very brittle on the hinges and tabs. Be cautious.

"Best Hound out there "

Looks great, super toon accurate, fun transformation, bit the materials are lacking. I really wish they would have used stronger materials especially for the price. It feel light and easily breakable. Not sure how often I will transform him.

"Best official MP since Sunstreaker"

Takara gets a 8.5 out of 10. Great sculpt, great articulation, great accessories.

"Takara knows their stuff!!!"

Mp Hound is a very fun toy.Yes I do see some weak points but all you need to do is just be careful and don't force it.Watch video on how to transform.His accessories are also fun and the articulation is great.The way Takara is doing things right I wouldn't be suprised to see an Mp Jazz come out in the near future.

"Walked right off the Screen"

I think this is a beautiful figure. The accessories are numerous and thoughtful. Most of which harkens back to some of the old G-1 episodes I love so much. I will say the feet transformation scared me to death based on previous reviews but if you take your time and look for the small groves those panels slide into when folded up you'll be ok. I recommend you watch Emgo's review, dont use the instructions. With that being said I'm not planning on pushing my luck. I deduct 1 star for the lack of Hound's rifle, and find myself wanting a substitute. I love the super toon accuracy and feel my figure arrived painted beautifully. Your mileage may vary, but I'm glad hound could join my 1984 Masterpiece shelf.

"Too fragile"

Looks great in vehicle and robot mode. Transformed from jeep to robot with no problems. When I tried to transform it back to vehicle mode, both of the jeep's back panels (the ones that hold the spare tire and the gas can) broke off. Based on the other reviews here, I'm clearly not the only one whose had this type of problem.

It's a good thing that it looks good in robot mode because there's no way I'm going to try and transform it again. For $160, this is very disappointing.

February 10, 2020


He look great in truck mode but I have never seen is robot mode because he can't make it that far. I just received my second Hound because my first ones leg broke in half. My second one came broke when his door just fell off! I'm not new to this I have at least over 15 Masterpiece and none of them have broke. He can not make it to robot without breaking. The second one never made it 5 minutes out of his box before he broke. I'm extremely disappointed with this figure. If this is how Takara is taking there MP I will take my money else were. Once again I'm no stranger and I own several Takara MP but this one is the worst of them.

"Fun figure"

Hound is a good figure. Looks great in both forms. Plenty of good accessories. Some great ingenuity on some of the transformation parts.

The big fault lies in some fragile parts that if your unaware of can be very breakable. Other reviews will point this out. I watched a tutorial on how to get around it just to be safe. If you know to look out for it, that is an easy workaround.

The other big fault is on the price hike. Even most retailers are not happy with the mark up. They are making this series a lot less appealing especially with some awesome third party figures out there for cheaper.

Less fragile parts and a lower price point would have given this a higher rating.

"This Hound will hunt."

Love this Hound. I have MakeToys Gundog and FansToys Willis, Willy, what ever they ended up calling him, and both of those are great figures in their own right. I still favor FT's myself, but for great toon accuracy this MP Hound has it hands down. I know there is a lot of reviews talking about how fragile some of the parts are, and they are right. But if you take your time, be careful and patient, and don't try to force anything then you shouldn't have a problem. I highly advise that you watch a video of the transformation so you can see where you need to be careful. I'm not a fan of how the prices of all the MP's seem to be almost doubling in price, but I guess as long as we keep paying it they'll keep raising it.

"Brittle plastic breakage"

So I’ve had this figure since January and it’s been sitting in my shelf. I decided to set it up in a new pose and the shoulder missle just fell off and the joint broke. So now i have to super glue it back together. I read that Takara had been using untested plastics for this this figure. Well they should have used reputable plastic instead of this brittle trash.

"2 broken pieces out of box. "

Nice figure, cool transformation but 2 different joints in his right leg were broken out of box for me. Was still able to transform, carefully watching a vid. But quality leaves a lot to be desired

"Amazing figure"

MP Hound is outstanding. His transformation is challenging and fun. He includes a lot of cool accessories and has the total G1 toon look. Was so happy to buy him. Thanks TF Source!

"Looks great"

Hound looks great in both modes, he isn’t the simplest or highest quality. After all the other reviews on this guy I may never attempt to transform him again as I currrently can’t find any stress marks and don’t want to risk an accident

"Cool figure but questionable quality"

Foot hinge is ridiculously fragile. I have over 100 masterpiece and third party TF without ever breaking a piece. I feel like quality from Takara is really slipping.
