"Reshuffling"?


I meant with the character names and personalities.

Technically, they didn't change many personalities. What they did mostly was create entirely new characters from the same toys as the American characters.

Plus, with Masterforce, most of its characters were humans rather than Cybertronians.

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

I would leave it at 60 but if they landed Peter Cullen ,Frank Welker ,Corey Burton & somehow got the best actors from the other TV shows that aired in the US then I could ante up a bit higher...Dialogue would be of course- constrained to fit within the events taking place ... the main characters would validate it enough for me ..I do afterall watch transformers prime in large part due to Cullen /Welker & the guys who I thought were the best among the post - G1 voice actors- Steve Blum, David Kaye & Tony Todd .... Gina Torres is doing a mighty fine job with Airachnid's voice & Sumalee Montano is solid as Arcee....Those names would sell me on Headmasters English redubbing ....

Peter Cullen would be a bit wasted since Optimus is only around for three episodes before he "gets whacked" again .

And like I said, doing a full redub of the series wouldn't be profitable for Hasbro.

It's not that. It's that producing a new dub would be too expensive in and of itself.

Yes. Since it wouldn't be airing on TV (as there's no real wide enough market for it to air to in this day and age), they wouldn't be making enough money in just DVD sales alone to warrant a full dub.
