** 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 Hsbro nearly sued them over the use of the name "Cybertron", which is the name of the ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' home planet.

** Once, the Swordbot Brothers even ''switched'' voice actors from the previous appearance. But it seems they never got the same VA twice, and they kept getting ''prominent'' appearances (rather than the standard "hanging out in the background in Grimlord's lair sequences 'til it's your turn as MonsterOfTheWeek" situation.) The last [[RichardEpcar voice actor]] ended up [[TalkingToHimself playing both characters]].
