VR Troopers is up!

Episode one http://sirstack.db-destiny.net/morphylogeny/VRT101.htm
and Two http://sirstack.db-destiny.net/morphylogeny/VRT102.htm

And there were a few usual typos and mixing of source footage, but this one



Stack has it listed as "Metalder Opening Credits" It certainly is from that, but that shot was also used in the first episode after Godneros exposits his idea to bring chaos to the world and come in charge.

And wow! Fiddlebot's surgery (which is incredibly dramatic and despairing in Metalder) was used in part of the Ending credits.

He reminds me of what would happen if Trump was a Sentai-like villain.

Hot damn that was cool.

I remember when I watched VR Troopers I was surprised by how much stuff even stuff I thought was original came from Metal Hero.

What typos? What source footage did I mix up?

I just double checked, and that shot is not in the first episode, aside from the opening credits.

In VR Troopers' original planned form, it was going to be just Metalder they were adapting. I wonder what the people working on the show must have been thinking when they learned that they'd be using two tokusatsu shows to adapt it.

Donít be surprised if Toei takes this cue for a future Sentai.

I dunno man, I actually watch the first episode on a regular basis, and for that one scene of Godneros's introduction alone. Maybe I just have some sort of remastered version of the episode. Maybe to make it more akin to VRT.

You're the expert, so I'll take your word for it.

I just saw "The Transmutant" yesterday and holy cow are the Japanese secretaries making zero effort to be hidden. Looking into the camera and everything.

VRT looks like it was a bear to put together, in terms of footage. Kudos to everyone back then for basically putting two shows' worth of footage in a wood chipper, piecing bits together, and assembling episodes out of several different sources. Also, I kind of figured that Ziktor's building was Metal Hero footage. What about the Season 2 transition to the spaceship? Is that from the same series, or was that different layered sources?

That was from Space Sheriff Shaider.

It was a mix. A night time Ziktor Tower shot from Metalder crossed with a Shaider Dark Fortress shot.

I'm wondering where those exteriors of the Virtual Dungeon came from. They appear to be US-created, given their higher-quality appearance, but the "dome" still has all those little buildings that all the monsters/division heads/etc emerged from in the Metalder footage. Did they use this Metalder playset for it?

Wouldn't put it past them, they used toys for some season 2 and 3 zord footage in MMPR (specifically the Dino to Thunder transformations and the season 3 Ultrazords).

Oh, and the shot in the intro of Ryan slamming JB to the dojo mat is actually from "No One's Friend" (after JB and Kaitlyn got infected by that virus-thing that made them be jerks), it doesn't appear to be from the pilot.

Really? Thanks. I ran through the episodes real quickly looking for the shot and couldn't find it and just figured it was a deleted shot from an episode (and no fan copies exist of the original, pre-Worth Keeter Shuki Levy-only version of "The Battle Begins", so I assumed that).

PRDT is coming, maybe as early as today, but definitely by the weekend.

Wait what?

Is this like a 20 minute version of that pilot where Professor Hart was an Einstein pastiche?

Mostly likely, yeah, that early VHS trailer presentation had the only known footage from it.

I see I always get curious when I hear there's secret VR Troopers stuff.

Like for the longest time I was convinced that they filmed the Battle Grid stuff all at once.

And that somewhere in some warehouse in LA is some VHS tapes that show Kaitlin, or JB returning to reality by themselves.

Or portal sequences, landing sequences, and return to reality sequences with only two Troopers at a time.
