But did something change with Masterforce(and I'm assuming)Victory? I recall the reason the sets were delayed so long is cause they got better master copies, and thank goodness for that, cause Masterforce looks excellent and has the bumpers/next episode segments.
The same thing happened with Metrodome and Madman when they did their DVDs of The Headmasters, Masterforce, and Victory several years ago. Toei denied them the commcercial bumpers and pre-episode/post-episode footage of The Headmasters, as well as Scramble City and Zone, just like with Shout! Factory.
What Metrodome and Madman had to do to get Scramble City and Zone was (sadly) use bootleg subtitled versions in their DVDs.
In fact, the Shout! Factory DVDs are essentially imports of the Metrodome and Madman versions (minus the bonus content and the bad English audio tracks), even using the same subtitle tracks (though, Shout! modified their subs at the request of Hasbro to correct some spelling/grammar errors and then to unnecessarily Americanize them
So, the only way to get uncut versions of The Headmasters subbed in English is to download the old TV-Nihon fansubs.
