    I just picked up the new Headmasters DVD (new for the US at least). Have any of you picked it up or watched it? I've seen the first four episodes and think the animation is great but some of the plot points are confusing.

    Same here, I've seen the first 4 episodes and I am liking these more than I thought, but I do agree that they are somewhat confusing at times. It does jump around a lot with the occassional seen that goes back to Kup, Blurr, and Arcee (crying), wheelie, and Daniel at headquarters and they are always worried about something. :D

    Just picked it up today and strangely enough, I'm four episodes in too. Weird.

    I have really been enjoying what I saw so far. Watching this and seeing how these characters that we already know, act differently because of the Japanese culture and seeing how it differs from what we are used to. One small for instance, there is way more hand to hand combat, mainly flying kicks. It is refreshing to see the series in a new light, if somewhat strange at times. Not enough to deter one from watching it though. One thing that does bother me-

    Wheelie and Daniel are very annoying. Good god are they annoying. Grr, urge to kill rising...

    I just ordered it from Amazon.com. It should be delivered by Wednesday.

    I have only seen a random episode of headmasters thus far. I will not judge an entire series based off of one episode (and one out of context) but I am not expecting much. Hopefully, I can get past the obnoxious sound effects quickly. Otherwise, well, it might be forgotten.

    Don't worry, the constant scene transitions (and the cast) get streamlined. Alot. For better or for worse.

    Haven't had a chance to pick it up yet, but I've seen a few episodes on YouTube. I've enjoyed what I've seen so far. I like the introduction of new characters. The scenes with Daniel and Wheelie are a bore, I just end up fast fowarding thru them.

    I got mine from amazon. It was under $20 and free shipping :)  That was pre-ordered though, but I bet it is still around $20

    If true, kinda defeats the purpose of this thread then lol- http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...ut-factory-headmasters-not-coming-stores.html

    If they do have it, I wonder if Best Buy will match the price and refund me the difference?

    Ok, just got done calling every Target in a 25 radius, all with the same result, none in stock, online only item. I even spoke to a few different managers explaining the situation. Nothing, so I don't know how you saw one.

    Damn, I hate subs. I'd rather hear English speaking dialogue.
