    I haven't seen much of Headmasters yet... but from what I've seen, Raiden doesn't seem so great. If anything, I have more desire to reobtain the 4 headmaster autobots.

    I was watching Headmasters not that long ago, but something came up and I stopped, I should go back and finish it, but at this point I think I'd probably need to backtrack a bit to remember what was going on when I last watched.

    Oddly enough, the TF I got out and fiddled with due to watching the episodes wasn't any of the Headmasters, but Metroplex.

    Headmasters is great (just check my sig, lol), I would give anything if there was a way for some of the original guys (Peter Cullen, Michael Bell, Frank Welker, etc) to be coaxed back into doing voiceovers for this and "officially" bring it to an American audience.

    **Spoiler alert for guard convoy, who hasn't seen it yet so don't read the following**

    They would only need Cullen for the first three or four episodes anyway since Prime "died" again, and that would be a huge marketing coup. "Featuring the voice of the original Optimus Prime", etc.

    Headmasters is a fun little series and I hope you have fun watching it. ^_^

    The end credits for that show ranks up there as one of my favorites. It's pure crack. XD

    How come you watched this in the wrong order? I mean you have already watched Masterforce and Victory correct?
    Are you watching with the dub or sub?
    Awesome G1 charcters aside Headmasters is my least favorite of the Takara produced G1 series.

    I too started watching Headmasters but only got a few episodes in (up until the one with the little robot bug that makes bots go crazy or whatever).

    Not sure why I stopped, Japanese Transformers is weird for me. Might try and get back into it though.

    Headmasters can be very, VERY stupid at times (hand-holding ring-a-rosies power-up of friendship, for instance) and a lot of the draw is seeing the old G1 characters running around again, but I definitely classify it as "guilty pleasure". :)

    I love Headmasters' space opera approach to Transformers, and seeing many of my favorite toys make it to the small screen. It was truer to the spirit of the original Marvel comics than the Sunbow cartoon ever was.

    I enjoyed it. It was, in a way, better than the other Japanese seriz (Chogin MasterForce and Victory) because it felt like a real season four of G1.

    It's kind of sad that the first thing that popped into my mind when reading that title was "Apply directly to the forehead".
