    Brian Hawkins "Ryan" in VR Troopers was the voice of "Trey" the Gold Ranger in Power Rangers Zeo before he became "Jason". That's the only thing about VR Troopers worth remembering, for me at least :)

    But wasn’t Jason David Franks [hope that’s right, guy who played Tommy] going to play Ryan before he got the PR gig, should be some thing also worth remembering about the show.

    It was Brad Hawkins actually. I heard he had a go at being a country singer after leaving the show too.

    Speaking of Saban's other productions during that time, anyone remember the Mystic Knights? It only lasted one season, but I think it was pretty cool, the medieval setting really set it apart from Power Rangers, Beetleborgs, etc. Part of me wonders if the show would've fared better if it'd came out years later, while LOTR was hot.

    I couldn't really get into Beetleborgs. Their suits were kinda neat, but the other goofy monsters kind of ruined it for me. VR Troopers was better. I liked the storyline behind it when I was a kid. Mystic Knights of Tir Na Noh was a kick ass show. I wish I had gotten a few more of the figures.

    I remember Beetleborgs. I wasn't much of a fan but I remember watching. I thought the suits were cool but the rest of the show (kids) I hated. I remember when the actress that played the girl changed and they cast a spell or something so she would look different then they cast a new spell so she would look the same to her parents and friends but not the viewers.

    So am I!

    As for the Beetleborgs and VR Troopers, they kinda sucked. I only got the blue, Shadowborg, and white Beetleborg toys. That was it. I'm glad I sold them, too.

    Not from me. I've never really been able to see the appeal of this guy.

    I think she is a pretty good reason to remember VR troopers, for me anyway.

    When JDF was still going to be in VR Troopers, the show's working name was Cybertron. They even released a small poster in magazines with JDF's face, with one side being his helmet. On that poster, the show was also called Cybertron.

    VR Troopers was actually a combination of two shows. Besides Metalder, it also used Spielban. Later, it replaced Metalder with Shaider.

    VR Troopers was actually a pretty good show. It just didn't get near the promotion of Power Rangers. One of the best parts was when you found out that the villain Darkheart was actually Ryans father. That whole thing was pretty cool. The evil VR Trooper was pretty cool too. She kicked their asses so bad. I don't think they ever actually defeated her. She was just able to break free of Grimlords control.

    I hated that damn dog, though.

    Mystic Knights was also a great series. I never got to see the ending of it unfortunately.

    Nope, I prefer the other two versions which he reformated to, the yellow one that wield a badass gun and the blue one which can change into liquid and wield a cooler sword.
