Transformers Headmasters <b>DVD</b> ~ Masashi Ebara

3.0 out of 5 stars It had potential, Sept. 2 2012
It's been months since I started to watch it. At first, I was geared up to watch some Gen 1 Transformers. Sure, subtitles can be a little less enjoyable than audio in English (partly because you are missing some of the action) but after a while, I just got tired of Daniel and the Headmasters (and those terrible Autobot trains, Scorponok, etc.). It felt very repeatitive. I suppose the same complaint could be made about the original series (i.e., the Decepticons were always searching for Energon) but at least you got exposed to a variety of characters. I think I got through about 75% of the set before moving on to something else. I must not be fan-enough to truly appreciate this series… Read more

I really liked this book, but sometimes I wondered how long it was going to be dragged out. I am glad to see that we can finally see the end is in sight (though it will be two novels from now; that's still quite a bit of story to tell).

I am nearly finished this book, and it has been a very good read. And Brandon Sanderson did a great job with using the same style of writing as Robert Jordan. And the references to past storylines was fantastic (i.e., helps put things together better). Kudos to Mr. Sanderson for doing a great job and I cannot wait until the next volume is released in paperback.

This series is definitely recommended if you like 600-1,000 page books… Read more

I cannot remember everything that I read, but like all new stories (at least for me), the book had a slow start because you are dealing with new characters in a new world. And to be frank, I had zero-interest in assassins (or wetboys, who happen to be more than assassins and may be just as likely to kill you for calling them assassins).

But as I read the book, I began to enjoy the characters and that world. Plus there is (eventually) plenty of magic and monsters for you to enjoy (if you like to read that sort of stuff). The third book was the best of the three (at least for me).

I`m not going to give away the plot/story, but the story does begin with an 8-year old… Read more
