VR Troopers

IMDB: 5.7/10ChildrenFamily7+1994 - 19962 Seasons

VR Troopers is a syndicated live action superhero television series produced by Saban Entertainment from 1994 to 1996. The show tried to profit from the fascination with virtual reality in the early 1990s as well as the success of Power Rangers. The show featured early CGI and video effects mixed with Japanese stock footage from three different Metal Hero Series: Superhuman Machine Metalder, Dimensional Warrior Spielban, and Space Sheriff Shaider. This kind of adaptation technique—turning multiple shows into one show—was originally used in such anime programs as Robotech and Voltron, though this was one of the first times this technique was used for a tokusatsu adaptation. On May 7, 2010 the copyright for VR Troopers was transferred from BVS International to SCG Power Rangers. Saban's VR Troopers was the first official "sister series" to the most popular "action fighting kid show" at the time, Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers. Much like it, this was an Americanization of a Japanese tokusatsu children's program by Toei Company LTD. The series was deemed successful, but not as successful as the Power Rangers franchise. Unfortunately, for the series, the Japanese footage was quickly exhausted due to extreme cases where multiple tokusatsu scenes were put together in one episode to the extent where stock footage had to be reused multiple times throughout the series. Similarly, another Saban program, Big Bad Beetleborgs, would do well but ultimately end quickly due to a lack of stock footage. Both series were adapted from the Japanese Metal Heroes series. The show spawned a toy line and a video game for the Sega Genesis and Sega Game Gear.

Mutant Mutiny Sep 11, 1995

As the Troopers entertain offers of commercial endorsements from a competing dojo to get money to help Tao's mother, AMPHIBIDOR, an evil mutant, is preparing a revolution against Grimlord; a revolution which will make this monster the dictator of Virtual Reality. When Grimlord realizes that his wicked empire is under attack, he devises a strategy to solve two problems at once: he will send Amphibidor after the V.R. Troopers. If they don't destroy each other, they will at least be weakened and vulnerable enough that Grimlord's thugs can finish the job. As Amphibidor battles V.R. Ryan, V.R. Kaitlin and V.R. J.B. face the rest of Grimlord's army in a full-out air battle. Together, the V.R. Troopers defeat Grimlord's men and Amphibidor---saving reality and ending Grimlord's revolution. Back at the dojo, the Troopers find out that Tao has worked out a deal with his competitor and will get the money he needs for his mother.
