Rhino says "no dice" on the Japanese exclusive Transformers Headmasters series at this time, which means no Masterforce, Victory, or Zone. Sad, but true (though I hear there are some nice Korean knock-offs of the Japanese DVDs floating around the 'net right now).
It appears that Rhino is unsure about Armada and Beast Machines at this time. Given the fact that Paramount is getting involved with the Transformers - perhaps on more than just a DVD level as well (Remember that live action movie that has been extremely hush-hush for the past 8 months???) - I am not surprised that we are hearing some wishy-washy crap about the rest of the Transformers series.
Beast Machines will begin receiving a Canadian release on August 10th (next month). Here's the information from Amazon.com about this product:
