    I just recently started watching Masterforce and was quite literally blown away by the awesome animation (some hate it, so I guess it's a matter of taste) and the fact that the Pretenders play such a big role in the series (I luves me sum Pretenders). I've only got one problem with the show... the Headmaster Juniors, Autobot and Decepticon/Destron, annoy the F*** out of me, especially Minerva and Cancer (a fitting name, lol).

    Are they going to be the "lead" characters for the entire series or is it going to focus mainly on Convoy/Optimus Prime/Fakimus Proim/whatever once he's introduced? I really need to know, cause if those kids don't become background character soon, I'm afraid I won't be able to finish Masterforce without having to seek psychological help at some point.

    Ginrai, and to a lesser extent the rest of the Godmasters, will become the leads once they're introduced, with the Pretenders taking a backseat. Metalhawk stays pretty important though.

    The Headmaster juniors remain main characters pretty much throughout though Im sorry. Keep watching though, its IMO one of the best TF series' theres been.

    Nope. As far as I understand, Victory is sort of a sequal to Masterforce, so I'm saving that for later.

    Masterforce is awesome! Some episodes make me think "Oh why the f**k do I watch this sh*t again?" Then something awesome happens and I know why!

    I just love Ginray, Godmaster of Hate, badass title!

    Masterforce didn't do it for me. it could be the human element and/or the anime element but i found it hard to get into the series. It picked up momentum in the middle third and then the last third was kind of hard to finish as well.

    It might be the best Japanese produced TF series I've watched... I can't remember, it's been a couple years since I've watched Armada (never seen Micron) and even longer since RID (never saw CR)... but Masterforce was probably more enjoyable than Galaxy Force and definitely more than Super Link...

    masterforce is great. six knight is a cool character and he kind of just floats in and out of episodes. but hes a badass haha. honestly i think the headmaster junoirs were to keep the kids related to the story? maybe, im not too sure about how cartoon makers think like that. but i loved it all the way through. the downside being that the pretenders and actual cybertonians kind of take the back seat during most of the series. but its been one of my favorite series to watch so far!

    Masterforce is an acquired taste. Some of my friends hate it, and I'm usually the first to want less human involvement in a Transformers storyline, but I like Masterforce. Metalhawk is awesome, I like the villains, and it has great animation.

    I like Victory even more, though. I love Victory's cast.

    I loved me all of Masterforce and it was my favorite of all TF series...until I watch Victory. Deathsaurus has stolen all my attention and I loved the fact Decepticons would win from time to time and actually cause real trouble/destruction (killing, actually hitting autobots with gunfire, more killing, mass city property damage). Dinoforce is hit or miss, but meh, still all good.

    Regardless, I Masterforce is just great.

    I really like the animation, the slow pan over a still really does it for me. :D 

    Prior to Masterforce I didn't have a lot of time for the Pretenders, their portrayal here though works a lot better than in other media. Cancer and Minerva are quite prevalent, one story arc revolves around them, but once Ginrai appears, then Overlord, Grand Maximus, and Black Zarak, you're hooked.

    The only character I find annoying is Browning, mainly because of his obsequies voice.

    It's a great show, watch it with subs, with all the recent talk of it, I'm going to watch it again soon.

    MASTAHH-FOORCE!

    Yes ... and then the Headmaster Jrs. kind of become Godbomber's pilots ... weird.

    My two cents on Masterforce? Best plotted and continuous storyline throughout of all the TF animated series. Great start, strong finish, though some complex storylines get confused from lack of complete explanation.

    Also the dub? (Yes the bad dub.) Best bad English conversation ever...

    "We're going to kill everyone? Even the women and children?"
    "Yes, even the women and children."
