Headmasters starts with Galvatron leading a new batch of Destrons to wage war on Seibertron, the Destron Headmasters. The Cybertrons are rescued by the arrival of the Cybertron Headmasters, led by Fortress (Cerebros, the head of Fortress Maximus). It is revealed that Fortress left Seibertron millions of years ago in search of energy, and have finally managed to come home. He explains that the Headmasters are from a planet called Master; the human-heighted robots who live there built themselves Transformers-heighted bodies. They can then transform themselves into the heads of the robots, and have now joined the Cybertron-Destron war.

Transformers: The Headmasters was the first Japanese Transformers series and picked up after the 3rd season of the original cartoon, taking place in 2011. However, the producers disregarded the story told in the 3-part "Rebirth" from the original series and retold the origin of the Headmasters from scratch.

Although considered the weakest of all the Japanese shows, Headmasters paved the way for other Japanese Transformer shows like Super God Masterforce and Victory.
