    Headmasters is available on DVD already- BW Neo, I can't help you out I'm afraid :(  Think someone posted a thread about it being on Youtube, though that may have been BW2.

    depends where you are! It's a UK release so you'll need a region-free DVD if you ain't over here in Blighty ;)  otherwise try amazon.co.uk

    None of the Japanese G1-continuity series have been dubbed to the quality you might expect from a modern anime dub. Headmasters, Masterforce and Victory recieved a hilariously bad english dub from the Malaysian TV channel, RTM-1. It was later aired on the Singaporean channel StarTV, which is where most people know it from.

    http://transformers.wikia.com/wiki/RTM_1_dub

    Both Metrodome and Madman Entertainment's releases of Headmasters are all regions, but they use the PAL colour system so you need a TV that can display PAL, or you can play it on a DVD drive on your PC.

    Only Madman's release of Masterforce has the dub for it, and even then it's only a select number of episodes for some reason.

    Beast Wars 2, its movie and Neo were never officially dubbed.

    That "some reason" is most likely that they treat the dub as an extra, because no sane man would seriously watch the whole series with it...

    Because no matter how you look at it, Ginrai is not Optimus Prime!

    Well, Metrodome (and thus Madman) included the full dub of Headmasters. But for Masterforce, Metrodome did not include the dub, but Madman did include the dub track for some episodes, but for some reason not all of the episodes.

    Metrodome decided to skip on the dub on Masterforce and subsequently Victory to save on rating costs (putting stuff through BBFC isn't cheap) and Madman uses largely the same masters save for the extras.

    I guess Madman decided to include the dub for a few eps for novelty value.

    and yes, I've seen them.
