Anyone remember when I posted this
Release the Japanese G1 series? This is very, very, VERY possible. Hasbro has stated that they DO have an interest in releasing them. Back in the December 2008 Hasbro Q&A, I asked the following question:
Sabrblade wrote:Since the Japanese-exclusive G1 cartoon series (The Headmasters, Chojin Masterforce, Victory, and Zone) were released on DVD in Europe and Australia, is there any hope of seeing them, and perhaps Beast Wars II and Beast Wars Neo, released on DVD in North America? Particularly the United States. From what we can tell, there is quite a demand!
And received the following answer:
Hasbro wrote:Hasbro has the rights to the majority of the past Transformers entertainment now, and we are currently formalizing a distribution plan globally. This doesn't mean that you will see everything at the same time - we are deciding when and where for the portfolio of entertainment.
So they are considering when and where they should be released. It may not be soon, but they could be on their way for release in the future.
To which Dead Metal replied:

It's easier and cheaper to translate and dub a series than make one from scratch, that will give them time to create the next TF series and give them something to broadcast on their channel.
So, who knows. We just might be on our way to finally getting some never-before-seen-in-America Transformers series from long ago and far away.
