According to Bryan Wilkinson on Facebook, when Palisades Toys was first planning on Micronauts toys to release they had hoped to release Battle Cruiser. This toy was never released by Palisades Toys.

According to Bryan Wilkinson on Facebook, one concept considered by Palisades Toys for Space Gliders was including stickers which would denote if he was the captain of a Battle Cruiser or Mobile Exploration Lab.
