Industrialist Carl Ziktor's virtual alter-ego Grimlord worked on the creation of an army made of warrior robots. And, before he became missing for two years, Ryan Steel's father worked with Professor Hart to prevent Grimlord's efforts by developing the ultimate weapon using the most advanced technology man had ever seen to stop him. Now, with the help of his friends J.B. and Kaitlin, Ryan and his friends use the VR power to prevent Grimlord's army from crossing over into our reality from Virtual Reality--and ruling it. However, will Ryan ever find his father? Written by Dairenn Lombard <piero@cyberverse.com>

Did You Know?


The show went through two different name changes, Psycon and Cybertron. In the Psycon pilot script, the main character was Adam Steele, who merged with the cyborg Psycon instead of transforming into it. The enemy was Grimlord, whose alter ego was Cyrus Ritker, who led a robot army known as Cyberdrones. Cyrus had a son called Percy who was Adam's martial arts rival. Adam's mentor and caretaker was a martial arts sensei called Tao. Adam was friends with Tao's daughter Mia and a young kid called Mouse MacKenzie. The Cybertron pilot starred Jason David Frank as Adam and drew its source footage from Super Machine Metalder. Adam was depicted as a solo hero going up against an army of robots known as Wardrones, led by Grimlord/Cyrus Rikter. Percy, Tao Chong, and Mia were also included. Doug Sloan played Tyler Steele in flashbacks. A pair of bumbling news reporters named Elmo, played by Jamie Kennedy, and Scuzzy, would've provided comic relief. Its theme song was based on Ron Wasserman's "Go Green/White Ranger Go" song in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (1993). According to Frank on his reality web series "My Morphin Life", he was originally cast as Ryan Steele and Brad Hawkins was cast as Tommy the Green Ranger on Power Rangers. At the last minute producers decided to switch the actors' roles. Hawkins would later appear in Power Rangers Zeo (1996). See more »

It was 10 times better then power rangers
11 July 2006 | by totalyrageSee all my reviews

well thats my statement anyways.

I liked VR-troopers as a kid. this series was a combination of the Power rangers and Starwars.

it had it's childish goofs, but the fighting scenes where fun to watch for me at that age. I'm not gonna judge this series for having childish contents. couse it is A KIDS show!.

besides that it had a decent story.

you have your standard villain that wants to take over the world. with his robot army. and I find that the Robot army gave it a little more realism. couse in the power rangers you can clearly see it's a lame ass monster costume.

the whole Trooper thing was all about special crystals that acted as battery's. for powering high technical suits.

unlike the first negative comment that was given, this series had it's value for me. + I still like the themesong LOL
