But in the show, they're both shiny.
ACTUALLY... this is the Fighting Spirit variant and that shield was pointedly not shiny in the slightest...

It seems like Goldar shipped by mistake. People received Goldar by ordering it with Green/Putty.
My pre-order from February shipped today.

I preordered 2 goldar. One each at separate stores. Hopefully those are ok. The site now
Says check store for availability and that only happens when itís released/close to release. And itís also out of stock on the website so thereís that.

Going back a few pages to the morphers on the belt...has anyone swapped them out yet? Like used a legacy belt/morpher on a lightning figure? Iíd like to see that before I start cutting up mine.

The only rime recently that Hasbro painted an entire figure was the Walgreens Silver Surfer and heís a scrawny smooth sculpt. Goldar is bulky and detailed and has other colors as well. I can see why he didnít get completely covered in gold paint

I wouldn't use the legacy one.
Will be to big.

I posted a few pictures few pages back.
Here's my phase 2 of Mike-A-Mizing mine. 😁

Phase 3 is painting the shield and other little details

Iíve seen Walgreens in Southern NJ put up price stickers and clear space on a shelf for the Lightning Collection, but the shelf was empty. Not sure if it was preemptive or if someone bought out their stock. But the rest of the Marvel Legends and DBZ stuff on the shelf seemed fully stocked, so Iím leaning towards someone bought them out.

I think Hasbro will release the JF Spirit Rangers and comic rangers at some point, itís just a matter of timing and context. Drakkon might see a retailer release since heís the most well known non-TV show character, but the rest might end up being con exclusives or regulated to two-packs with well known characters later on in the life of the line.

Also, heel turn, I think Goldar looks good and has a fine shade of gold.

Not so fast. That doesnt clear hasbro for the shield for the red ranger, though.

Some will hate me for saying this but... The Silver Stripe made the helmet a lot cooler.

I look at the fighting spirit suit in the same way I look at the 1995 or 2017 movie suits. Its just a different form of the same power ranger. I never understood how much hate it got.

Not only that, if you actually watch the scene in Fighting Spirit the shield has a clear sheen to it. Although it's hard to determine the colour in the episode because of the green filter, it's clearly the same gold as used on the White Ranger's shield and Zeo Red's gold accents.



Hasbro have been crazy inconsistent with the gold colouring so far. A different shade on, say, a gold spandex suit compared to armour is one thing, but for practically every figure with gold accented armour - even released in the same set - to use a different gold paint or plastic is definitely strange.

No, chest emblems are ugly.

The silver stripe is cool but the chest emblems make the designs look less appealing.

I would have liked to see Black and Gold to emulate the Dragonzord. /shrug.

Not sure if anyone noticed this, but Hasbro pulled a quick one compared to their press shots and flipped the "Satanic" belt buckle on the Puttys from how it should be.

Luckily if you heat up the hips and pop the legs off, its easy to slide the belt off and flip it.

After:


I also gave the mask a quick gray wash, i think it looks better.

I was reading over the last couple pages of posts about the gold colors hasbro have been using. Looking at all the figures they have released so far I can definitely say each figure does have different gold on them. So far the white ranger is the most accurately painted. The SDCC Gold ranger turned out great, my favorite LC figure so far. FS Green is alright, but you can tell they used a yellow piece of plastic for the shield, then lightly painted it with gold paint. If you look closely you can see spots that were missed during the painting process. My opinion is that bandai made better dragon shields for the green and red ranger, better color and shape. Hasbro made the dragon shield softer and removable which I really like though. The BM Gold ranger I don't have so I can't speak for that one. Now the SDCC armored red ranger, unfortunately the shield color on him is way off. The red color of his suit just makes the shield very yellow looking. Hasbro should have used a darker gold on him to work correctly with the red suit. Other than the gold color, red ranger looks good.

I think hasbro is doing a pretty good job so far but they should work on few things when it comes to missing paint or color choices. Sorry for the long out of nowhere rant, I'm finished lol.

@Kylash327, that putty figure looks much better with wash effect on his face,makes the details stand out, great job!

Goldar's date on the Gamestop site has been updated to 8/6/19... He is back to open preorders, though...
so not sure if they are waiting on a second batch now, or not.
