    I may have to finally cave and get a multi-region/region free player. I've been on the fence about it anyway due to some of the previous DVD releases of these shows, but one big box set? I think I'm gonna have to jump.

    That is pretty awesome, just wish there was one like this in the U.S. Now I have seen the Headmasters episodes, but the Masterforce and the Victory would be new to me.

    About $80. Which is still, truthfully, a pretty good deal. I can't remember the exact episode counts of the series, but it's total it's somewhere in the 130-140 range. That's a lot of Transformers for 80 bucks.

    Play.com doesn't, but Amazon UK does. They're about $4 more expensive, but what the hey, at least you can actually get it.

    A little net searching will find you many, many domestic player models that can be "hacked" with nothing more than the included remote control to be Region Free. I was pleasantly surprised to only need about 5 minutes online to Google some instructions on the keypresses needed to do it to a Samsung upscaling player I nabbed.

    Play don't ship to the States but I can order copies and send them on if people want them for cost + shipping. PM me if you want me to :) 

    BTW I figure shipping to the US would be about $15 or so. So it'd be the $95 - 100 at best guess.

    I'm curious...what's the official reason (if any) for the UK getting these DVDs, but not the US?

    I'm not terribly bugged, since I have all these eps in one form or another. I wouldn't mind a DVD set, but I can't justify buying a region-free player right now, unless I could find a good quality DVD/VHS combo on the cheap.

    I'm going to have to find out if my laptop will play these. TV-Nihon has sat around for years not finishing Headmasters.

    IIRC it's something to do with copyright / Hasbro / other stuff. Someone more informed than me can probably illuminate.

    They're PAL. UK standard.
