    Watching clips of TakaraTomy's live action series Tomica Rescue Force and Rescue Fire I thought it was impressive considering the budget and target audience. (kids)

    If TakaraTomy were to make a Transformers Tokusatsu would you like it?

    If this means live-action Masterforce, I might just be swayed.

    Well, I---

    Damn. Beaten to it!

    I'd be all over a live-action Masterforce tho. Sentai shows are def. not my slice of bread, but I'd probably give this one a chance if they made one. Especially if it meant new toys that were homages to the old Headmaster juniors and pretenders! :D

    haha live action Masterforce would be awesome, though it would probably have them in botform only in the last 5 minutes before they kick the bad guy of the ep, staying in powermaster/headmaster form most of the way

    Interesting as it would be, I doubt it would ever see the light of day this side of the pacific.

    It would be rediculous and Masterforce-ish. I'm a big fan of anime, but Japanese live action are usually poor and silly.

    I doin't known if i'd watched it, I don't normally watch japanese shows subbed, I prefer dubs. But then again the dubs for the Takara series are beyond Energon awful.

    No. I don't even know what a "tokusatsu" actually is but in my experience, Japanese-produced TF series = crap, so I definitely wouldn't watch it.
