Hasbro and Takara populated the first two years of the globally successful Transformers toy line with moulds previously used in Takaras Diaclone and Micro Change Series lines, as well as drafting in moulds with Takatoku, Toybox and Toyco origins as well. For 1986, the year of the Transformers animated movie, we got our first Transformers-only toys and sculpts with a much more futuristic aesthetic. Post-movie, we had season 3 of the cartoon and then the 3-part finale to the animated show called Rebirth or season 4. It was through this 3-part show (not to mention the Marvel Transformers Comics) that Hasbro promoted their new gimmick-driven Transformers known as Headmasters and Targetmasters. This week we look at the four standard-sized non-base Autobot Headmasters Brainstorm, Chromedome, Hardhead and Highbrow. The titanic Fortress Maximus will be saved for a future chapter.

Your link have a problem Maz ^^
Even if I don't like the post-movie TV serie (mostly due to the very basic graphics), the toys are interesting.
Targetmasters and Headmasters had really excited my imagination, it was wonderful to have humans (and Nebulons) characters with powerful armors, able to combine with robots !
A great idea !
It's unfortunate that Powermasters were not used in the U.S. cartoon, but japanese serie Masterforce is also very interesting (as all the japanese Transformers TV series) !
