The Power of Gold by stratosmacca The Power of Gold by stratosmacca
Switching gears for a bit... The Gold Ranger from Power Rangers Zeo, with his zord Pyramidas. While Zeo is one of my least favorite PR series, this costume is my favorite of any Ranger thus far.

The Zeo season sucked for me because Billy was always my favorite Ranger. So I was bummed when Billy gave up his Zeo powers to take on a "helper" role in the Command Center, but I was super psyched and excited when the Gold Ranger showed up and Billy was all set to take over the Golden Powers...

Then we were given some stupid, lame ass reason as to why Billy couldn't accept the powers, and instead Jason was sent in to replace him. I am still bitter. Billy earned those powers.

So yeah, the Zeo season sucked for me. But in my picture above, the Gold Ranger is Billy. So there.

I could never really like the pyramid zord. To me it was ugly as hell.

I think Jason is awesome, but I agree that Billy should have been the Gold Ranger. c:
Or Tommy's brother. :3
But definitely Billy. ^^

Jason was my favorite from the original six (Billy was a close second), but I agree that Billy should've gotten the Gold Ranger powers for at least one episode.

I thought it was an ok reason to why Billy couldn't get those powers and I like Jason, Especially as the gold ranger (Mainly cause I like how he used to be the leader and Tommy used to be the back up then in Zeo they switched places lol). Yes I think Billy deserved the gold ranger powers and I would have liked to see Billy have the spot light as a 6th ranger, but I enjoyed seeing another original character and enjoyed what I got. That's just my opinion though. ^_^

Now, If only we could have a series were one of three things happened, if only for one episode: 1.Billy came back
2.Gold Ranger returns
3.Billy returns... as the gold ranger!

I personally won't want to rub in too much into where the original source did PR Zeo derive from, but seriously speaking, the producers rickrolled us when Billy was not given the role of a Zeo Ranger. After watching both that season of PR and its original Japanese counterpart, I felt that the Super Sentai version has a more complete ending than Zeo (which led to the somewhat disastrous Turbo series :XD:) Yet still, Gold Ranger is kickass.

Oh, wow. I really like this, as well as the Jungle Fury piece you did a while back. And I enjoy seeing the Rangers drawn in this style. It's really good. I hope to see more like this in the future!

I've loved the rangers for the giant robos. That was about it. Zeo was bad, but no wheres near as bad as when Trini, Zack and Jason left. Everything from that point till Zeo was HORRIBLE. Gods talk about taking stuff tooooo far.

Anyway, thanks for the great Zeo fan art. The Gold Ranger sitting on my desk agrees.

I also love PRiS. That was the best series for a while. SPD is one of the best. There's been a few other good ones like Wild Force, Lost Galaxy, Lightspeed Rescue, and Dino Thunder was good. But having watched them all from the beginning, the best written and over all done was Power Rangers in Space.

Yeah, there were some pretty horrible eps after Jason, Zack and Trini left. But I like a lot of what they tried to do in the second and third seasons. I have fond memories :)

PRiS was definitely one of the best PR series. My favorite is Lost Galaxy, but In Space is right up there too. After Time Force (which I also loved), I think the series have been mostly hit and miss. But I always give them a shot every season. I think Jungle Fury has been one of the best series to come out in a while.

I haven't been able to watch watch all of Jungle Fury or Operation Overdrive. I think they both have been pretty poor. It's kind of sad, because the series can be fantastic if they just kept the writing better. I think one of the worst things to have happened in some ways is for Disney to have taken over the series. However, the worst thing, is I've not been able to find any shape form of fashion of seeing about getting to work on the series; since it all takes place in New Zealand. I can't even find out who to send scripts to. It's all kinda depressing...

I wasn't able to get through Operation Overdrive-- just didn't grab me. But Jungle Fury was really entertaining. Give it a bit (especially when RJ officially joins as the Violet Wolf Ranger)-- it'll pick up :)

I've been curious about that. He looks cool, but the corny morphers, and the dumb pizza shack really killed me being able to get into it from the getgo. Overdrive had a really great premis, and a cool homage to Lord of the Rings by calling the jewels "precious." But I've never had the chance to finish it.

Awesome! Nice to see someone rockin' the Power Rangers... And you're too right, Billy was the most amazing Ranger EVAR and really, just got the shaft in the *worst* way...

My first original novel was based on Power Rangers, in a weird, twisted fashion that I'm not permitted to divulge... Strange, the things that a person remembers, ten years down the road...

That's too cool! Some of the first "comic books" I drew as a kid were Power Rangers-based. I did a three issue "miniseries" based on the Green Ranger (from MMPR). And I had started on an AU comic where Billy did get the Golden Powers in Zeo.

Ahh, memories!

I watched them up until In Space, and after that, nothing could compare really until I saw Dino Thunder. It was a return to form a genuinely enjoyable series in my opionion. Who doesn't love Tommy teaching kids how to be rangers? :P

I stopped watching partway through Zeo (after Billy left), and didn't pick it up again until a friend recommended Lost Galaxy to me. Then I got majorly hooked on it and went back and watched In Space too (which I loved). Since then it's kind of been hit and miss. But I give every season a chance :)
