    um, I think your friend would be mistaken, they didn't give headmasters a new dub for the recent shout factory release, so there wouldn't be an availible dub to use.

    I think she's mistaken and somehow watched the old dub.

    FYI: the old dub is nowhere near as awful as people love to say it is. It is decent.

    Oh no they killed Wally... quick find the power pack!

    The qualities not bad, you definitely get the gist of what's going on, but the translation is pretty laughable.

    Yeah, Rebirth is probably what she saw and didn't know the difference between that and Headmasters.

    The Hub can't just show Headmaster with subtitles?

    They should show Scamble City.

    If they dubbed it, it would have hit TFW far, far in advance of The Hub actually airing it.

    Nothing escapes TFW or the fandom these days... nothing.

    Also, someone else would have said something too.

    Only if it's the old subtitling. The new Shout Factory subtitles piss me off beyond belief.

    The best part of that dub is that the word "Idea" is consistently pronounced by several characters as "IdeaR". Coming from NJ, that's funny.

    The Hub is never going to show anything subtitled. You can forget that idea right now. It's a children's network and a huge portion of their target audience is 5 and under and can't read yet.

    They should just get Bang Zoom or Ocean Group Studios to dub us the Japanese G1 series.

    Just as long as they do an accurate dub, and don't retcon shit like the Allspark and Primus in there.
