Characters are likeable, the plot is a little loose but it's there, and there have actually been a couple emotional moments that caught me off guard.
Like a said a very enjoyable MECHA ANIME. Because this is where fans of Transformers need to be warned: this is HUMANS pretending to be Transformers, and it SHOWS. I personally never had the illusion the characters transformers into mechanical aliens. For me it looked more like a Transformers influenced Gundamn series. But, again, a very enjoyable one, and I personally don't regret watching it.
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.Read more ›
