    Although I'm iffy on some of the voices this dub sounds professionally mastered and for me, is actually watchable. It was done as a demo for shout! However hasbro would need to approve fan dubs from script to voices and rather then deal with it Shout's going to release subs.

    The sound effects and the music make all the difference, not to mention the voices are spot on as well. I actually felt like I was watching a brand new G1 episode there for a few minutes. Very nicely done! I really wish Shout would embrace this.

    Shout wanted to actually but it's Hasbro that would be putting up red tape. Rather then have a scheduling conflict, I guess, they decided to avoid it. Now, however, I hope Grimbot gets a couple polished voices to replace some of the not so great ones and does a fan dub series. I cannot stand fan dubs because of poor mix quality (people who think they know what they're doing but don't) but this is the first one I ever saw that is done at studio quality.

    Man they need to let those guys do the job! The music is my biggest complaint about Headmasters. That stupid sounding final fantasy like riff they play constantly during fights makes me want to pour molten lead into my ears.

    I agree some of the voices are not that good but at least I can take it seriously.

    For the most part (from the few minutes I watched), it definitely looks pretty good. The big problem, in my opinion, is that the two most prominent characters (Hot Rod and Galvatron) have, by far, the worst voices.

    Just to clarify I did not do this. It was done by someone known as grimbot.

    I agree. The audio mix makes it watchable though. If some of the voice actors from other dubs replaced the guys who didn't do too great (blurr and Optimus need better voices as does arcee) we'd have the dub we all dreamed of.

    it was all good until galvatron talked, the voice doesn't fit the character at all. it's not menacing, crazy, or even at all leadership material to me. it just doesn't fit the character. and rodimus's voice is a bit off too.

    but it seems alright after that :)

    The music and sound effects are great. Some of the voices fit perfectly too. And then a dreadful voice pops up and shakes me right out of it. But I'd still rather this than having to read subtitles or listen to the dub it normally has.
