Power Rangers is a beloved property amongst geeks, so it's understandable that the new Power Rangers movie reboot is under a lot of scrutiny.
The designs for the Rangers, their Zords, and classic villain Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks) have all sparked a lot of Internet reaction, with Twitter being the fastest and most prevalent venue for fans to give their typical, "Yay, nay, who cares?" range of opinion.
The latest Power Rangers movie reveal is the new version of Goldar, which we saw (in toy form) will be something akin to a bat-winged, monster mouthed, Oscar statue made of dripping gold. Needless to say, fans are reacting to the new design - and here is what they are saying.
...You already know that the Internet is going to have jokes. So let's just jump right into it, shall we?
As always, the Internet expresses its outrage with ironically bad grammar.
...Continuing the theme of humorously bad grammar, one fan attempts to express the thought a lot of us are thinking: "They took the whole 'Goldar' thing WAY too literally..."
Some Power Rangers are happy, asserting that this design makes more sense than the Ape bat in gold armor from the '90s show. For those who feel that way:
This rant hits the mark with a super-specific (yet somehow spot-on) Gremlins 2 reference!
For you action figure fans who used to add some pyrotechnics to your playtime...
From a simpler time, back before the world even knew this new Goldar existed...
