Re: The concept of SK Revolution

I hate to be a naysayer, but I really don't like the idea of the hacker character. I rarely like the 'hollywood hacker' characters who have superhuman mental capacity with deep knowledge of every system in existence. By donning the hacker hoodie, you too can conjure up magical technologies and brea...

Re: The concept of SK Revolution

around 20 years later (or less depending of how far the Tremblays choose to set Revolution from the first seasons) I personally hope they're not planning to have such a big gap. I don't really want a Batman Beyond setting with SWAT Kats, lol. If that banner they had at Anime Matsuri is representati...

The concept of SK Revolution

Just something I've been thinking about for a while now and haven't seen any other topics about it. At Anime Matsuri 2016, Christian Tremblay explained how the concept for SWAT Kats Revolution is that continuing from the original show, over the years, the equipment, gear and arsenal the SWAT Kats ha...

Re: 3 Years Later: Evaluating the Kickstarter Phenomenon

For reasons ranging from being unavailable due to other industry obligations, to plain disinterest Not to derail the thread or imply that being disinterested in attending a live event is the same as being disinterested in the entire show, but just a throught: after listening to how special SWAT Kat...

Re: 3 Years Later: Evaluating the Kickstarter Phenomenon

Yeah, a statement at least would definitely be welcome regarding that promised trailer. Do they even remember they promised that or did they forget during the efforts trying to find a financial partner? Did they plan to use the raised Kickstarter funds to produce the trailer (which you would assume,...

Re: 3 Years Later: Evaluating the Kickstarter Phenomenon

Tackling an action show is a totally different beast, one that I'd argue is much more difficult. Plus, so much of American animation gets redirected toward humor, so much so that I can't think of any adult-targeted animated shows in the past decade that weren't at least partly billed as a comedy. I...

Re: 3 Years Later: Evaluating the Kickstarter Phenomenon

At the end of the day, I think a lot of SWAT Kats' appeal was just how '90s XTR33M and unexpected it was—if you tried to pitch it today, it'd have to be as an ironic pastiche. You couldn't play it straight like it originally was, or you'd be laughed out of the pitch meeting. If you angled for the f...

Re: 3 Years Later: Evaluating the Kickstarter Phenomenon

Just throwing in my 2 cents. I won't go into the whole "whether the Tremblays should show more Revolution material or not and where is the 2 minute trailer they promised", I'd rather ask this: was Kickstarter the right path to take in the first place to revive the franchise? Given that lately we see...

Re: How closely should a rebooted Swat Kats follow the original story?

What I wish for is paying a bit more attention to consistency between the scenes. https://kooshmeister.tumblr.com/post/130326776757/penfold-is-danger-mouses-husband The infamous bacteria monster eye number screwup is the worst inconsistency in the show. Next to that, the shortcomings in episodes li...

Re: How closely should a rebooted Swat Kats follow the original story?

What I wish for is paying a bit more attention to consistency between the scenes. For example, in Mutation City, the giant mutated frog causes multiple holes in the Turbokat's canopy, its acid drool burning at least 2 small holes, and also creating a bigger one with its tongue. Yet, we never see thi...
