Swat Kats Revolution Update

Post by austinswatkat87 » Sat Sep 11, 2021 8:21 am

There is an update from the Tremblay brothers that contains a 3d image of one of the Swat Kats and a quote.

I think that's TBone, and OMG we finally have physical evidence from the show. Even if it's a picture, it's still something. I'm excited. RazorHappyCait RazorHappyCait RazorHappyCait

As I wrote on Twitter:
Grateful for the update, but I really wish this wasn't so cryptic. After waiting so long to hear anything, I think fans are owed a clear explanation of what's going on and what (if anything) we can expect and when.

Agreed. The pic is nice, but as Mark said, this is so cryptic, that I’d be pressed to even call this an update.

When was the pic made? This could possibly be something that’s not even recently created. Did it come from the not yet delivered upon trailer? And there no explanation to why that hasn’t been delivered yet.

I get playing your cards close to the best but being this cryptic when your updates seem to have years in between them does not help. Instead of getting excited about this, I have the opinion of “…And? That’s it?” At this point, I’m sure you can explain what’s going on with Revolution without naming names and being super specific about details.

I’m still firmly in I’ll believe it when I see it mode, and this “update” failed to change that.

Maybe I'm watching the early MCU movies too much lately, but that suit is throwing some major "Iron Man" armor vibes at me. The shoulder and arm look mechanical, and the glowing Kat insignia looks like it's supposed to be a power core.

Don't get me wrong, an Iron Kat suit sounds awesome, but it would have to be a separate character, because they have gadgets like Batman already, so an Iron Man expy would be better as another hero for maybe another city to occasionally visit.

And with that said... If I ever get motivated to get back to writing, that's definitely going in my story.

I should be excited, but I don't know: I harbor a lot of doubts, considering the outcome of several revivals lately.

Also, it looks like this revival will be done in CGI... and I don't know if that's a good fit for Swat Kats.

The last few revivals that disappointed were helmed (I swear, autocorrect hates me, because it turns the word "helmed" into "yelled") by people that either had no idea what they were doing, didn't care about making anything good when they could make it "diverse", or just couldn't resist shoehorning their politics into something that was meant to help you forget about that kind of stress inducer.

Honestly, I think this project is cursed.

We were still suffering some of the 2008 financial crisis when it was started, then the AT&T/Time-Warner merger stuff started happening. And now we have a massive pandemic going on as well.

It's like the fans and creators alike can't catch a break! TboneSwearCait RazAnnoyed
