Trivia

Originally, the Transformers series in Japan is a re-dubbed version of the US series. When the series ended in the US, Toei produced a continuing series as Transformers still proved to be very popular in Japan. The final three episodes of the US series was disregarded from the Japanese Transformers continuity. See more »

Alternate Versions

The series was dubbed into English by Omni Productions, a Hong Kong-based studio mostly known for their low-rent dubbing work on various other Asian productions, such as certain Godzilla movies and martial arts films. This dub has become infamous among fans due to its mangled translation work, unprofessional-sounding voice works delivered by only a handful voice actors, mispronouncing names or outright renaming characters, and for oftentimes drastically toning down the original dialogue or inserting new bits of inappropriate language like swearing or unintentional innuendos. The dub was mostly available through bootleg tapes, but it has been released on various DVD sets in the West officially, beginning from the early 2000s. See more »

Starts with a bang...and ends with a thud.
16 May 2001 | by bajbijSee all my reviews

This series starts out promisingly. New adventures featuring Jazz, Optimus Prime, Ultra Magnus, Hot Rod, Galvatron and new transformers like Chromedome, Sixshot, and Fortress Maximus. Transformers live or die, some go away for good. Action packed and filled with funny dubbed dialogue by the infamous Hong Kong people who did the 70's Godzilla films and the early kung fu films of Shaw Brothers. Especially funny is Galvatron's voice, sounding like one of the more infamous kung fu villains in cinema history. Unfortunately, the Japanese show contempt for the old school American Transformers, killing them off or sending them away or keeping them in cameo or supporting roles, thus making space for the Head masters. The one old school transformer they chose to keep is Wheelie along with his human partner Daniel, thus emphasizing the Japanese' love of little boys. Fortress Maximus, who becomes the new Autobot leader is easily the worst Autobot leader ever, almost not even fighting when the Decepticons attack, and his final fight scene with Scorponok in the series is the worst contrived fight ever in a Japanese cartoon. The first 25 episodes are good. After that, it's all a failure from there.
