Not really weak, actually good
3 January 2004 | by (california) – See all my reviews

Actually "The Headmasters" do get introduced in the last eps of US Version of the Transformers unlike one critic said.

The writing is much better in that the writers finally killed of Galvatron once and for all, but in the same breath Optimus Prime too, but Primes death is really weird. He and Galvatron fight for the Matrix, Galvatron is thrown to it, but Primed dies anyway? Weird.

Its not really the weak part of the Trinity, its good. Theres an ode to Voltron as Autobots start using Swords as weapons as well. If your lucky enough to find a good copy consider yourself lucky, most of the dubbed copies are in horrible condition. The person with a good copy of the subtitled version can be very rich seeing as there is a shortage of good quality episodes on tape.
