Would have been a lot better. Perhaps the Tommy character would have remained good in a different setting. He already did everything on Power Rangers and it was time for him to go. I am surprised they didn't think of having JDF play Tommy on Cybertron.

Even if they did and kept JDF in the role, its unlikely they could have have Tommy Oliver in Cybertron/VR Troopers. Unless Fox approved the pilot.

True Fox likely wouldn't have approved of them doing a PR spinoff off network.

Saban would have had the right to do so if they wanted. Its not like they didn't pitch to Fox first. Which is the common curtesy if not legally required.

But it could have still pissed Fox off. But I don't think there waa any plans to have JDF play Tommy. Adam was likely supposed to be older, given how old Ryan was.

Yeah I still wish they had Jason David Frank as Tommy on VR Troopers, and had Brad Hawkins as Ryan Steele be the White Ranger.

But that's what fanfiction is for I guess.

Maybe they could have just made VR Troopers a Fox Kids show.

Then they could have had a block of all the Saban superhero shows.

The original plan on Saban's side was for Cybertron to be a Fox Kids show. Fox said no because they didn't want to have too much of the same thing. That apparently changed by the time Masked Rider and Beetleborgs were created. But Saban did end up getting full control of Fox Kids by the end, so that could have played a role.

It was never the plan for the Tommy character to star in Cybertron. At least from what has been leaked. We can't say why they chose a new character. Perhaps they left it open for Tommy to still return to PR and not be saddled by whatever happened on Cybertron. Its not far fetched since Tommy was kept on MMPR ulitmately. So it stands to reason there was a lot in flux with JDF and his character's future on Power Rangers.

Tommy needed to return to MMPR to be with Kimberly! The only way Tommy in VR Troopers would have worked is if Kimberly followed him. The idea of using Adam Steele, was silly.

Yes, MMPR without Tommy staying wouldn't have been as fun. Especially since we ended up losing Jason, Trini, and Zack soon after.

Rocky could have been the White Ranger and led the team.
