    Funny how a ton of fly-by-night production houses can do english dubs of anime with decent voice actors (Cartoon Network level actors), but Hasbro can't be bothered to put up a few bucks for an english dubbing of this cartoon. Saves me money. I was gonna buy this for my kids to enjoy, but one is barely learning how to read, and the other just knows his ABC's and words like "cat"... Looks like I'll have to dig out my fansub discs. Sure the quality isn't as good, but at least there is heart put into it rather than just a lame attempt at scoring quick cash.

    I have always wanted to watch the Japanese stuff just so I can learn a little more about the TF franchise.

    It is listed for $23 at Futureshop.ca and that is an awesome price for 35 episodes.

    Will buy.

    Agreed. The audience is severely limited by this handicap. I share my older cartoons with my nephews, and they love them to the point that they have some of their own DVDs of classic toons. This, they would not give a shit about. When you are 8 years old you do NOT read translations at the bottom of the screen. New material keeps youngsters interested in the franchise. Too bad this material is useless to them.

    So if I'm reading this right, this is not dubbed in english but instead it has just been subtitled in english. if that's the case then this is an easy pass.

    Still all the complaining about the lack of an English dub? I'm glad they didn't add it since it would have cost a lot more to buy and I can read just fine.

    How severally limited would the audience have been with a price of $60 as a handicap?

    As much as I wanted to like Headmasters, is how much I actually really disliked headmasters.

    Transformers is Transformers and Voltron is Voltron. But Headmasters tried to take Transformers and make it into Voltron. Plus a lot of the stories just became annoying after a while.

    I may have to check out the rest of the "G1" series after that, but I have to say I wouldn't even consider headmasters G1 worthy.

    Could someone also explain to me the reason you have a guy transform into a train and then fly? Or Scorpionock be a flying craft? WTF? Also a flying city that looks like and earth city, WTF WTF?

    It is funny. In all my years here you always have people claiming that the Japanese subbed version of the Japanese shows are always better and that english dubs kill the show.

    Here we have no dubs and yet people are still upset.

    Just goes to show, you can't please em at all lol.

    for $23 it will be an easy buy for the sole purpose of being exposed to more TF lore.

    One question, will this series have all the Japanese stuff like Victory, Brave and Scramble City ect ect or will it just be Headmasters?
    I have zero clue when it comes to the Japanese only shows.

    I can't imagine it would have cost almost $40 extra per set for a dub. Big names aren't needed here, just some voice actors that are hungry for a role. Back in the 80's, shows like Tranzor Z and the Voltron series were dubbed rather hastily and cheaply, but they still turned out fine. There are people in the community that are making some pretty good fan dubs, so I will wait to see if any groups put their dubs on this new and better video source material. Then, it's download time :) 

    Peeps were hoping for a new, better dub.

    Headmasters is a really shitty series. Real shitty. I've had the official DVD for years and as a show it's pretty boring, annoying and underwhelming especially when Super God Masterforce and Victory do it all so much better.

    Headmasters is plagued with animation errors, horrible music, weird ass scripts and generally far too much Wheelie and Daniel.

    I can't be the only one to have watched it all and thought this also?

    AMEN!

    I will have to grap Super God Masterforce and Victory to see for myself. I gave up on G1 Transformers due to Headmasters.

    Just HM for 35 eps. I'm sure if this one is successful, Shout will release Masterforce and Victory.

    Brave isn't a TF show.

    No. It was total arse :lol

    The fandom bitching if they did a dub without the old actors; which would've made the set cost *at least* $40 more would so far eclipse the complaining about subtitles that...

    [Springer]I think it was a good choice[/Springer] ;)

    I got the headmasters box during Botcon. I started watching a few eps, it isn't too bad... I'm kinda irked at how fast they wrote out characters though.

    Is Headmasters really that bad? lol

    Oh well I sat through the entirety of Energon, twice, so I can sit through crap.

    Brave isn't TF? How come I keep hearing Brave mentioned so often on this board?

    The first 5 or so eps were ok. Keep going. It is the same episode over and over again. You'll see. And your also going to want to kill Daniel and Wheelie.

    Brave is like a cousin of the Transformers and Takara used a few of the later Japanese only toys in the Brave lines only recolored and stripped down in most cases.
