- Utsumi wanted to get an Ultra Mech Selection II toy set, which was an actual toy set containing several attack team vehicles across multiple series.
- The Sevendarake store is, in addition to being a parody of the Mandarake toy store, a reference Ultraseven, who was the next Ultra to defend Earth after Ultraman.
