Transformers: The Headmasters is the Japanese continuation of the "Transformers: 2010" series (better known as Season 3 of G1 in English speaking countries). This series essentially ignores the three-part Rebirth episodes, opting for a new and more ongoing introduction to the Headmasters, Six shot, and other characters. It also sets up the rest of the Japanese continuity for G1, including Masterforce, Victory, Zone and other TV Magazines and such.
The actual series is fairly basic- Galvatron returns to retake Cybertron (obviously the pact with Optimus Prime wore out), and employs the new Headmasters, lead by the mysterious Megazarak/Scorpinok. However, from a far off, distant planet, autobot headmasters come and well.. you can sort of figure it out for yourself. The plot actually goes somewhere, though, something that's been missing from Transformers series before this.
The series was the first Japanese-spearheaded project in the Transformers animated series that acheived a full length production (Scramble City, a one-off that introduced Ultra Magnus, Metroplex and Trypticon into the Japanese G1 toyline, due to the absence of the movie), and as such doesn't stray too far away from the original styles of Generation one (though sadly, the music is not as orchestral or fantastic as the majority of G1's score), including similar designs, characters, and even the scene-changing interludes are still there, which really add to the "alternative nostalgia" thing in the title. It's something you should have watched when you were a child, and it feels like something you should have watched, but due to where you were in the world, you just couldn't.

A big step up in terms of the subbing from 'vol.1' in this series (Headmasters) and the show as a whole is helped by being presented with its original voice acting and music score.

A little bit to much the same in places and could easily have been trimmed down, but both the characters and the story develop well.

Best of the original TF cartoons!

I think that it is important to remember that the series is designed for and was aimed at children; the credits sequence after each episode and the fact that Daniel gets so many appearances I think are testimony to this. As an adult I can appreciate all the flaws that previous reviewers have pointed out, but as a child I think I would have enjoyed this series as much as the the original G1 episodes.
There is no point in watching cartoons from your childhood if you are going to scrutinize them as an adult - you will not enjoy them !
A small warning - the English language soundtrack to these episodes is awful.

This is much better than "Rebirth" aka Season 4 of Transformers: Generation One.

I remember the headmasters in Rebirth being green alien people that had robot suits that transformed into robotic heads that sat on top of robot bodies. How stupid is that?

The Headmasters series erases all that happened in Rebirth and does it right. This time there are no green alien people. Instead, the headmasters are are small, human-sized robots that transform into heads that control larger robot bodies.

It's an interesting series. Not everyone will like it, but the old fans most likely will.

The English language track is absolutely awful. I wish they would've recorded a new one, but that will probably never happen. The Japanese track is just fine, though.

What are you expecting from this box set? First off, understand that the DVDs are region-free. You can play them on any machines, but may not be able to properly view the videos if you screens are PAL. To bypass this you can watch them on your computers with the DVD drive. I tried mine on my American Xbox and it worked too, but there were occasional skips on my TV due to the frame rates of PAL being one more than NTSC, which is what's used in America. The subtitle for the episodes are redone, continuing the naming of characters from the G1 toy line and series. You also get commentary tracks, as well as the horrendous StarTV English-language dubs (please avoid this, unless you need a good... bad laugh!). Of course you get the Japanese language track as well. The series begins with Optimus Prime, Galvatron and Rodimus Prime, but eventually makes way for Fortress Maximus and Scorponok as the main characters. The series itself is a direct continuation of the American "G1" series (minus season 4) and the "2010" Japanese series. You even get a few episodes of the Beastformers, which were marketed in the U.S. as their own toy line, the Battle Beasts, after the elemental feature was added to them.

I've never written a review on Amazon.co.uk before but "A Viewer" from Australia's comment that this series develops characters is ridiculous.
Much of this series is poorly written. Although earlier series of Transformers were far from being the best thing any written, they had that certain something and definitely were never as poor as this. A FAILURE to develop character is the most obvious flaw in this series. Where characters are represented, they are done in only the most basic way (oh look, Hardhead is saying he wants to fight decepticons and is making mock punches in the air) or, for the most part, not at all.
I don't want to address specific concerns because these would act as "spoilers" but, I'm sorry, this is poor at best and I believe the writing shows little of what made me like Transformers in the first place.
But I will say... (look away now)
The Battle Beasts (remember them?) cross-over was pathetic. They might call them "Beast Formers" but I've still got the action figures (in a box in the attic) hat proves somewhere that this is what it was.
Fortress Maximus is depicted as Voltron?? You can't argue with that - when he is first introduced, they show him doing the Voltron pose, you know with the sword and the half-open mouth. I don't know if its a homage or what but whichever way you look at it, it's pointless. Transformers are a classic in its own right without having to ape another series.
Trainbot was rather lame. Besides, a train that can travel intersellar distances? I'm sure that had already been done in another anime series??
The above were things that annoyed me but the worst part really was that, generally, the writing was poor.
