HEADMASTERS #1: RING OF HATE
Transformers issue #38 cover
The final year of the original cell animated cartoon series consisted of a measly 3 episodes but brought to life some of the best Transformers toys of all time. What a shame they didn't keep the series going at this point!
The year is 2011. With the events of "The Return of Optimus Prime" having occurred the previous year (2010), this series features favorites like Optimus Prime, Ultra Magnus, Hot Rod and Galvatron; while introducing new characters such as Sixshot, the Trainbots and the Headmasters. Also note that with the appearance of characters such as Sideswipe and Prowl, that the events of the animated movie did not occur in this continuity.
Note that all synopses use the western name for common characters and terms.
1. Four Warriors Come Out of the Sky - Galvatron leads some D's, including the D. Headmasters to Cybertron to take Vector Sigma for himself. Reinforcements are called from Athena and Earth to stop them. The Earth A's are being blocked by Sixshot and other D's. The A. Headmasters arrive at the end.
