    Excuse my ignorance here, but am I correct in thinking that these guys form a combined super jet but do not form a combined super robot?

    That is correct. Big Powered is the name of said jet.

    Damn, I always thought the two LG single releases were comics-only characters so I skipped out on them - they were in the JP G1 cartoon?

    If you buy a set like this and it has QC issues, you are pretty much screwed right? With retail, if it's in stock, it's easy but with these EXs, and online retailers, its like going to Hades and back to get a replacement on just a regular figure IF they seem the issue sufficient enough to warrant replacement.

    I feel like if you get a copy with bad face paint, chips, looseness etc, they'll just say F you, laugh and hang up

    Didn't our very own Vangelus play a few characters in that dub?
    I seem to remember it mentioned on [email protected]

    You know, with the new micromasters coming out, and these three guys and the upcoming Star Convoy, I am suprised Takara or Hasbro isnt doing some Encore rereleases of some of the Micromaster stuff packaged with a DVD of Zone. Id be all over the cartoon appearing characters that havent been remade in the new siege line. Plus a reissue of Countdowns base and the other 4 city bases/buildings that appear in the cartoon.

    The the Omni dub, which came out in 2007(according to TFwiki) as part of their releasing of the series. I’ve never once heard of @Vangelus being a part of that, but there have been fandubs before.

    There really is absolutely zero excuse for the quality of those dubs.


    EDIT: Okay, so the Zone video uploaded was indeed from a fandub. I didn’t know one existed so when I saw the english in the title I just assumed it was the Omni dub, which is still awful.

    Oh man, I almost forgot about those old Singapore dubs.
    I fondly remember them, since it's all we had way back when....
    They're SO BAD that they're almost good!!!
    ....................almost

    If you mean Top Spin and Twin Twist, they never appeared in any animation. They do appear in the Legends manga where they've been retroactively made into Powered Masters themselves, which is why they can combine with Big Powered now.

    As an adult I prefer the Japanese dubs but as a kid I preferred the bad English dubs . I could understand them .

    sorry to call this out, but its a pet peeve of mine. headmasters, masterforce, victory and zone do not have japanese dubs. the original audio is japanese. a dub is when you take the audio and rerecord it in a language that is foreign to the original version. G1 has a japanese dub with english original audio for example

    Even as a kid in the 80s (where it was a lot harder to find english subs than it is now) it was sub over dub for me except in rare Cowboy Bebop-level exceptions where the VAs did the characters justice.
