As the story continues from part one, this is my most favourite part from the Japanese Saga. After reading Nick Roche's: The Last Stand of the Wreckers, the most infamous Con (and one of the many Holy Grails in the Transformers Generation One toy line) has his start from this series.

Another Holy Grail from the Transformer Generation one toy line has his start from this series as well - Black Zarak!

If your still hooked after watching the Headmasters, then this is the next logical choice.

HASH(0xa4af37ec) out of 5 stars It is in Japanese April 7 2012

Just to follow up. These are in Japanese with English subtitles, just like Headmasters was and soon to be released Victory. Trust me, the Japanese is a non issue and you will love these sets. I have the Headmasters and compared to the horrible UK dubs in English that are floating around you will truly appreciate its true form.

Great addition for Transformers fans who want to know which way Japan went after replacing "The Rebirth" for their own Headmaster series. Masterforce is the second installment to the Japanese collection, and it was good Shout factory waited a year to release it...They left everything in tact, including the "bumps". Quality of this set is better as well. Very Satisfied, and can't wait for Victory.

HASH(0xa4d6ebd0) out of 5 stars Transformers: Supergod Masterforce DVD is a great DVD! July 8 2012

I was very disappointed with the Transformers : Japanese Collection Headmasters DVD! I felt the Shout Factory cheated the fans by editing footage that existed in Transformers : Headmasters anime series. I am so glad this is not the problem with Transformers : Japanese Collection SuperGod Masterforce! The DVD looks like it has all the footage from the original broadcast in Japan. I am pleased that all the scenes and the animations of the Transformers Pretenders and PowerMasters are intact. I am very happy with the second release and I hope they do the same thing with Transformers : Japanese Collection Victory! This is a great DVD set but know that you have to get use to the Japanese audio and English subtitles. God Ginrai looks like PowerMaster Optimus Prime (Convoy) but he isn't Optimus Prime (Convoy). He is a different Transformer! I love this DVD! This is a must have for all Transformers anime series fans! A+++++++

HASH(0xa4d2ce04) out of 5 stars Old school anime Nov. 9 2013

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Following after the finale of the “Headmasters” series comes this new entry & also the second part of the Japanese trilogy. “Super God Masterforce” again re-imagines the Transformers mythos from the original Generation 1 series & just like “Headmasters”, there's a slew of new characters & story lines from this almost alternate universe if you will. While this Japanese series is an extension of the original cartoon it's also something that stands very much on it's own making it quite accessible to viewers not familiar with the massive space opera that is Transformers. This second part of the Japanese trilogy centers on humans who actually connect with & wield the Transformer armor which is quite different from it's generation 1 predecessor but concepts that were introduced in The Headmasters series. This series obviously has a very different flavor from the American show but not so different that you won't enjoy the action & deep space, cosmic conflicts. Overall, you really gotta love this stuff & this entire collection is in it's original Japanese language with English subtitles & not that it matters but for many it may be annoying & may even be a real test in endurance to sit & watch each episode if you get tired to constantly read captions. But besides that, excellent transfer & menus, & this massive five disc collection features every single episode of this eagerly anticipated fan favorite import.
HASH(0xa71ff948) out of 5 stars Absolutely worth it. Sept. 7 2012

Super God Masterforce is one of the more unique entries in the Transformers Universe, I say this because it focuses more on the Human race learning to defend their world themselves through the use of Transtectors rather then the Transformers themselves. It's a very interesting concept and allows you to connect more with the characters.
The style of Masterforce is much more Anime in influence then Takara's previous series Headmasters. Which is departing further from the American influence of the original Generation One series. This doesn't hurt the show at all. In fact from an Animation stand point everything feels a lot more dynamic, a lot of the Transformations are done with Stock footage which allows for more impressive animation and makes the characters seem more powerful.
Story wise, as I mentioned above Masterforce is very different then the previous series, Innitially the main cast of Cybertrons (Autobots) and Destrons (Decepticons) consist of Pretenders. Transformers who hide in an outer shell that helps them blend in with organic life on Earth. Eventually the Pretenders are phased to minor characters as the main cast of Humans who become God Masters (Power masters) and Head Masters repectively take center stage. They merge with Transtectors (lifeless Transformer bodies) to become a new form of life.

As far as the set goes, it's well put togethor the menu system is the same as Headmasters except the Masterforce theme plays in the background. I experienced a problem on Disc 4 where the subtitles got stuck during an episode for a few minutes. It was during a fight scene so most of the dialog was the usual "I'll kill you" "No you won't" stuff. Other then that the set is definately worth the $20 I paid for it.
If you don't mind reading subtitles, and you can't get enough old school Transformers then this is a great set at a great value. Shout Factory has put togethor a chance for fans to own nice high quality versions of previously (Legaly) unobtainable material. There is no Dub track on these DVD's it is Japanese only. This may deter some people, but I urge you for twenty bucks give it a chance.
In reguards to a previous reviewers comments it would have been VERY expensive to do a dub of this series for this release which would have increased the price of the set. Any fan who wants to see it in English can certainly purchase bootlegs of the very poor Star dubs where the same five voice actors play all the characters and everyone is named wrong. But if you want a high quality representation of these great shows for a very affordable price then Shout Factory has provided it.
