    Victory by a considerable margin. Also the only series I have on DVD and I enjoy re-watching it periodically.

    Victory is the single greatest thing that has and ever will be made by humans. It completely outclasses everything ever produced by our species and will likely never be surpassed in the course of history. It's an underrated, underappreciated masterpiece that will stand the test of time and will one day be recognized as the single highest form of entertainment, only to be seen, heard and experienced by the truly worthy. Why it is not world renowned, famous and worshipped is truly a mystery that boggles the mind, a mystery far greater than the likes of the Nazca lines, Bermuda Triangle or the Loch Ness monster.
    We as a pathetic, primitive race should be ashamed to even exist on the same planet as Victory.

    So I guess I'm voting for Victory. I may be biased, I dunno.

    Haven't seen any of them, but from the looks of it, Victory gets my vote. I love the characters (Star Saber, Victory Leo, Deathsaurus, and all of Breastforce) and DAT THEME SONG.

    Although the Headmasters characters and toys are almost all of my favorites in one single show, that cartoon is probably the weakest of the three. But in spite of being weakest, I still like it more than Victory.

    Masterforce is by far my favorite. I also consider it to be the best Japanese-produced Transformers series made to date. Way better than any of the Japanese Beast shows, way better than Car Robots, and way better than the Unicron Trilogy. Masterforce also has the coolest commercial bumpers of any Japanese OR American TF cartoon, imo.

    I like the theme at the start of the show, but when they play it during it drives me CRAZY!
    Overall I like the headmasters background music best.

    You mean the background music that sounds like a 1980s 2:00am infomercial? The same droning background music that's about 10 seconds long played on an endless loop? That's easily the worst music in the entire Transformers franchise. No, hyperbole, I can't think of a single TF show ever with music that limp and generic. The Headmasters opening theme is awesome and I'm fine with the end theme, but the BGM itself is claw-your-ears-out terrible.



    start at 1:53 for the "action" music. :rolleyes:  That's what they play every time something that's supposed to be exciting happens.

    AAAARRRGGGGHHHHHH MY EARRRRRS!!!

    I don't care about Victory at all.....

    So it's almost a tie between Headmasters and Masterforce for me. I guess Headmasters wins by a tiny tiny margin.
    In effect, Titans Return is giving us plenty Headmasters at the moment - and I'm hoping for more Masterforce influence.

    I do have to say, I like the background music in the American Sunbow cartoon better than any of the Japanese though.

    Me too, but I can't be sure it's not just the nostalgia talking in my case. I do like the Masterforce background music, though.

    Yeah, every show uses recycled music cos of budget etc.

    The first G1 US show I find the least offensive to the ears in that respect.

    The difference isn't only the music; I noticed the Japanese series feature zero or very little background music and ambient sounds inbetween the beats.

    We are used to have the beats of a shot punctuated with background music and ambient sounds in western film making, so I think that is the reason why I think the per shot tension arcs in the Japanese series feel very "off" to me.

    I enjoyed all of them immensely but headmasters is my favorite of all the transformers series. Give me Cyclonus, Ultra Magnus, and Arcee from the American series and it would be my #1

    I enjoyed Masterforce, I liked some parts of Headmasters, but Victory was the easiest one for me to sit through. The theme song, the animation, the final battle, the big ass space ships, as far as pure Transformers shows go, it was just fun. :D

    Ooh I binge-watched them all just a couple of months ago! Though all of the details are sorta hazy, I enjoyed Victory the most.
