    Probably to free up more room for the new characters

    Or....just to make you mad

    Choose wisely

    Because they had to free up room for the new commander Fortress Maximus.They took him out since he was second in command.That way when Rodimus left it only left room for one bot to be the new commander.

    Don't feel bad I was kinda bummed too.They always kill the cool characters and leave the stupid one alive.

    Headmasters briefly appeared in the 3-part "Rebirth" episode in Season 4 which Rhino released. But it's out of print now and difficult to come by without paying 3-4 times the original retail price.

    If you get yourself a region-free DVD player, you can get Metrodome's complete Headmaster release here: http://www.transformersdvd.com/

    The way he died was L-O-L, it was just so stupid! I mean he has been blown to bits but 6 hits from Sixshot and he's dead?

    The battle was crappy, I mean, Sixshots just took potshots at him while he just sort of stood there.

    Fortunately his death was handled a little better, with the funeral and all, as opposed to...well, just about everyone else who died over the course of the show.

    Dubbed into what language? The english language version is a joke of mammoth proportions.

    Eh? Rodimus Prime had been gone, and Fortress Maximus had been commander, for fifteen episodes before Ultra Magnus died. There were only ten more left to the series. He was killed for the same reason anyone else was - 'cause their toy was coming off shelves, and they need to be shuffled off the show. From a storytelling point of view, of course, it's to further Chromedome's vendetta against Sixshot.

    If you watch the dubbed versions, you probably won't be any the wiser - the dubbing is incompetent at every level. The Metrodome version (as Voiceroy posted) has both the sub and dub, though, so you can pick and choose.
    Word of warning, though - don't try and watch it in English with the English subtitles... it royally screws with your brain...

    Just a side note, I'm sure there are some who don't appreciate the huge spoiler in your thread title. I mean, it's not a great series, and I've seen it before, so I don't care, but it's not very...tactful.

    They made Sixshot look so badass throughout the series, and him killing Ultra Magnus really got him serious cred....and then he lost it when he became "Uncle Sixshot", aka Daniel's bitch.

    Dude, the frikkin' episode is titled "Ultra Magnus Dies!!".

    The thread title is hardly more spoilerific than that...

    It's not really a spoiler either, the show isn't recent or anything. It'd be like complaining that a topic mentions optimus prime dying in the first movie or something.
