    Once again I ask: WHY does the US not get these?!??!!?? Victory, Headmasters...?! GEEZ. I'm getting tired of news that everywhere else and their moms are getting these series, but not here.

    Yeah Owning Zone would be the end of my collection hopefully they will release a single dvd with it on here in Britain and also they could add a few extras from this release

    Will these dvds be the dvds with the horrible voice dubs? It may not be worth it. I rather watch the japanese subbed eps. It's a shame that nobody else has picked up where TV-Nihon left off on Headmasters. I think it has been like 2-3 years since they released a new episode of Headmasters.

    I believe that means there will be a subbed version on there. In fact, since there never was any dub of Zone (and I can't see anyone paying out to do one now), I would count on subtitles. Even if they are the same as the UK set, which incidentally is pretty good.

    Also, it says these are all regions, so US peeps might be able to import this and run it, provided you can run a PAL signal.

    Madman listed Masterforce as region 0, but it ended up as region 2.

    That's odd. Why would they release it as Region 2? I thought they were Australian, which would be Region 4.

    Was there even a TV-Star dubbing in (horrible) English with this series? I don't seem to recall there being one

    Aussie here. I've got Masterforce in my hand and it's Region free. Australia is indeed Region 4 so being Region 2 makes no sense at all.

    I think you might be thinking of the Metrodome UK release, originally intended to be region 0 but changed to region 2 at request of Sony BMG.

    Yes, there was. Known for flat delivery of some lines, and an actually quite creepy, raspy Deathsaurus. Possibly the best dub of the three, though maybe that's because these guys weren't so established for there to be any preconceptions of how it should be like the other two.

    I enjoyed it. Probably not as good storywise as Masterforce, but very solid. It's cool to see a lot of the Japan-only characters. Leokaiser is sweet. Make it a point to see sometime, as long as you don't have to go too far out of your way to do so.

    That's great news--maybe I will import these after all. Wonder if a US PS3 can do PAL? Anyone know?

    Deemer, good to see you again man :)

    Seems like Madman has trumped Metrodome's Victory set again, as Metrodome's neglected to include the RTM 1 dub, and didn't include Zone until Metrodome re-released all the DVDs in a big boxset.

    I've tried playing Madman's Masterforce on my Region 1 DVD Rom drive and it doesn't work. (On the other hand, Madman's Headmasters on my Region 1 DVD Rom drive does work.) I ended up having to download something special to play Region 4 DVDs in order to get Masterforce to play.

    So I think you're mistaken...

    By the way, the DVD Rom content is from TF Pulp:

    Did you guys help out like Botch did with his box art scans?

    I think Deemer forgot that practically all DVD players here are region free, while they are relatively rare (at least amongst the big brands) in the US.

    These sets are nice.... they bought out all of G1 in a single set, and it came in 2 plastic cases the same size as what they are using for these 3 japanese series.

    As for the dubs, Headmasters had BOTH japanese and the bad english dub, and you picked a language. Also had 2 Subs using japanese names and english, you decide which to use....

    Then for Masterfoce, they did only the japanese dub, with 2 eps per disc in extras having the bad english dub...

    personally, I hope this set is done like HM, not MF... I LOVE setting a dvd going while i wander round the house doing other things.... then only watching when something good happens.... to do this on the MF version i need to play my cheap chinese bootleg on the PC for sound with the beautiful DVD muted :(
