Because the gold of dragon armor is different than the gold on white ranger armor in-show?
But in the show, they're both shiny.

He's also not made entirely of gold and is, like, the most popular Power Ranger in the franchise. So priorities are obviously going to be different.
They did great on BM Gold. I'd hope for some consistency in the quality of gold paint.

I don't own the figures yet, since SDCC was a exclusive, but all the reviews I watched said this: It doesn't look in camera, but the shield is actually gold. So yeah. this might be the case for Goldar. He doesn't look gold in the photos, but in real life, he's a good gold, just not BM Gold gold.

Different rangers had various levels of gold and silver, and the Green Ranger shield color works out ok for me.

I'd be concerned for actual gold and silver Rangers as several are the bright chrome gold and silver people think should be on every fold character. Even there, Hasbro does do these colors too, as BM Gold attempted.

I thought the gold on beast morphers gold was pretty good.

It seems like Goldar shipped by mistake. People received Goldar by ordering it with Green/Putty.

Apparently Gamestop has him dated for October.

Also, it sounds like they oversold on Goldar preorders today. Joy!

Just reading Facebook posts, and passing the info along. This pertains to Gamestop and I'm Canadian, so it might not impact me, other than stupid aftermarket prices.

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.
