ACTUALLY... this is the Fighting Spirit variant and that shield was pointedly not shiny in the slightest...

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 so fast. That doesnt clear hasbro for the shield for the red ranger, though.
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.

Before:


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.

Has it been pointed out that the Silver Stripe on the figures helmet isn't even accurate to Fighting Spirit?

The silver here doesn't wrap around and meet the center stripe at the back.


However, it does do that, on the toy:

When they were previewed I noticed the middle ridge was too low. I kinda figured this sculpt was made for regular GR then repainted for FS.

Same with Shadow. His helmet is painted on a light blue base with some metallic plastic, which probably cuts down on a coat of paint.

I think he still looks great.

And GameStop's website has been updated, and a new layout... he's still up for pre-order and now has a release date of 8/6/19 lol.

Wish they had painted the black straps on the legs but not a huge deal. I imagine this thing will look amazing with a light wash in all that detail.

Compared to a Putty doesnt he look a little...short?

A little short for a Putty Patroller? Could it be Luke Skywalker here to rescue you?

I'm not saying y'all shouldn't complain, but I'd say Hasbro's bar should be set relatively low when stuff like this is still going on

1000% agree. The classic helmet is really clean and elegant in its simplicity, the Fighting Spirit version is gaudy.
