    The Headmasters series were released on DVD in Japan (obviously), the UK and Australia (and probably other places, I can't remember). Just be aware that it's... very Japanese and not like the American Transformers series at all, other than using similar character models.

    You can probably find Metrodome's "Takara" DVD sets for a pretty low price. Madman sells the Australian equivalent. However, they will only work on region free DVD players with TVs capable of processing PAL signals, if I recall correctly.

    There's a Malaysian set that pops up on Ebay that's region free. It's not offical, but you get Headmasters, Masterforce and Victory for $50, so that's what I bought. I know a lot of people don't agree with me, but I think that's a good deal. It comes with an English dub

    Though if it's the dub we're probably all thinking of, it actually makes more sense in Japanese (possibly even without the subtitles :p ).

    It is that dub, but it does come with the Japanese version with the subtitles as well. That dub is so bad it's good, but you know some people prefer it to subtitles, so whatever

    And my favorite from Masterforce, the most offensive insult in the universe:

    "YOU ARE AN EVIL MAN!"

    As a europeean I have the region 2 release. But there is only the hilarious dub availible for Headmasters in that set so I kind of want that malaysian bootleg set anyway.

    I counter your argument with: Ninja Consultant.

    It's highly effective!

    There are releases with english Dubs. But they tend to fail due to unenthusiastic voice acting. it is the following link
    YouTube - Transformers Headmasters ENG Episode -01- (1 of 2) Four Soldiers From The Sky HQ JT
    NemesisMatrixPro and friends made a much better one here:
    YouTube - Transformers Headmasters Episode 1 Part 1.wmv
    And I know MaxLinden has also been working on an english dub.I haven't seen any of it yet but his stuff tends to be pretty good.

    For other japanese releases I go to Welcome to TFCog - Your source for Transformers fan dubs! because they also do very good work.

    Hope that helps some.
