** There was loose talk during production of possibly doing a crossover with ''Power Rangers''. Various interviews with the cast revealed the sets of both series were in close proximity of each other, but nothing ever came of it.

* {{Defictionalization}}: In a sense. While the series' primary depiction of VR obviously ain't gonna happen, the VR headsets they used have become the current wave of VR technology, what with Oculous Rift, Google Cardboard, [=PlayStation=] VR, and even View-Master VR.

** Meanwhile, Kenner reused molds from other toylines to fill out the VRT toy lineup- the "VR Skyborg" [[http://actionfigureadventures.blogspot.com/2013/09/jail-bird-speeder-skyborg-jet.html was recycled from]] the ''[[WesternAnimation/{{COPS}} COPS n' Crooks]]'' line (where it was the "Jailbird Speeder"), while the "VR Pursuit Jet" was an [[http://www.toyarchive.com/Aliens/Prototypes/DropShipSmallTestShot1.html unused mold]] from the cancelled ''Film/{{Aliens}}'' toyline- which in turn had began back in 1986 as the [[http://www.yojoe.com/vehicles/86/firebat/ Cobra Firebat]] from ''Franchise/GIJoe'' (Creator/{{Hasbro}} having bought Kenner in 1991).

* TheOtherMarty: Jason David Frank was originally set to play Adam Steele in the unaired ''Cybertron'' pilot while Brad Hawkins was cast as Rocky the White Ranger on Power Rangers. A second pilot was also made which featured Professor Hart being played by an Einstein-esque Caucasian. Saban realized that replacing Frank on Power Rangers was too risky so Frank returned to the show as Tommy in the role of the White Ranger and Hawkins stepped into the role renamed Ryan Steele. The name Rocky ended up being reused for for the second Red Ranger.

* PropRecycling: The suits used for the battle grid fights were based on the spandex suits used in ''MMPR'', notably using the Red Ranger helmet mold from ''MMPR'' retooled/repainted to remove the dino details and to look closer to the trooper suits.

** The ''Cybertron'' pilot also shows that the series was originally intended to be a stand-alone adaptation of ''Metalder'', with Tao as his ally. It was only after Jason David Frank was replaced by Brad Hawkins that the series was revamped into a team show and the ''Spielban'' footage was brought in for the two additional main characters (since Metalder was a lone hero, whereas Spielban had a costumed female sidekick). By that point, Saban was also using footage from two different ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' series for ''MMPR'' (''Zyuranger'' and ''Dairanger''). Not only that, but Hasbro nearly sued them over the use of the name "Cybertron", which is the name of the ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' home planet, which might explain why ''VRT'' toys were made by then Hasbro subsidiary Kenner rather than Bandai.
