Goldar design revealed for Power Rangers reboot

12.19.2016

I've been a big champion for the POWER RANGERS reboot for a while now. The concept of kung-fu teen superheroes who fight giant monsters in large robots that also do kung-fu is awesome, no matter how you put it. And while the original show was hampered by low-budgets and catered to little children, the reboot has the luxury of a large budget and looks to appealing to a more mature audience (though hopefully still enjoyable to little children as well). 

One of the coolest monsters in the original show was Goldar, who despite the camp surrounding him, still came out looking badass. Now we get our first look at the dude in this toy commercial (where we seem to be getting all our first looks at designs for this movie):

He looks...fine. Having seen an early preview of the film, I can also say he has a MUCH different origin than the show, and without giving too much away, the design certainly reflects that. As someone who never really watched the show as a kid, and whose excitement is based on the potential of the concept and not necessarily some sort of nostalgia for the source material, I think that's okay.

But what do you guys think? Sound off below!

Meanwhile, POWER RANGERS will "Go, Go" to theaters March 24th, 2017.

Extra Tidbit: Goldar was the first giant monster the Power Rangers ever fought on the show, and one of the few to survive the encounter.

They gone and fucked up ANOTHER character

How is it so difficult to stick with the source material??? These new suits, the dark knight angsty teen tone, Rita and now Goldar are just fucking horrid. This is something that is going to crash and burn instantly. It has ZERO connection to the source material now, why even call it Power Rangers?

Their doing the same thing to Goldar as they did to the shredder in the first new tmnt movie, which is stripping him of anything that might induce fear or terror. These polished cgi villains never work, i just dont get some of the reasoning behind some of the decisions being made here, but whatever it IS power rangers so I guess I shouldnt have expected more.

BWAHAHAHAHAH...
The movie megazord design was shitty enough, but the worst part is that Hollywood liked it so much they reuse it for the Goldar design.

Didn't mind the trailer, looked like it could have potential but that's a complete mess. Looks like some exec picked up an unfinished prototype, saw the name of the character and went "hurhuurrrrr this must be dun huuurrrrrr".

???

You think he looks "fine?" Even if I knew nothing about the source material, I would not think a villain who looks like a melting butter sculpture looks fine.
