Right on schedule, AdultSwim.com has posted the latest two episodes of Resolute, episodes 7 & 8. As always check them out at the Resolute video page here.
I am a bit curious, because the site says episodes 9 & 10 will be shown tomorrow, but I was under the impression that the last part wouldn’t air until it was aired on television…also thought the last part was a 10 minute finale. Guess we’ll find out. As far as I know, these aren’t YouTube’d yet, but I’m sure it’s just a matter of time.
EDIT: Okay, I went back through my notes (yes I have notes from Joe conventions on my computer…I realize that’s sad), and the initial report was 10 5-minute episodes with a 10 minute finale for a total of 60 minutes. So not only does that mean we get two more episodes tomorrow night, it means there are essentially two MORE episodes after that! W00t! 🙂
We’re getting close to the finale…I’m excited, but bummed at the same time. This has been an awesome ride, I don’t want it to end! I know full well Hasbro has geared up to move on to the film stuff, I just hope this Resolute universe doesn’t just end up floating away. It’s too cool to be treated like that. We’ll see, I guess.
We’ve already seen the Battle Damaged B.A.T. and Night Force Falcon, well now two more carded samples of the never-released Wave 14 figures have hit internet in the form of Zap and Resolute Storm Shadow.
Listen…I’ve been singing the praises of Resolute for months now, only to listen to a lot of fans who brushed it aside and only wanted their vintage re-hashes. I hope everyone is watching and listening now… 😉 This version of Storm Shadow looks incredible. Very simple, nothing dramatic, nothing over-detailed, but a simple, basic white-clad ninja with some really nice sculpting and great gear. What else can you ask for? While so many people bemoaned the loss of Zap, Alley-Viper, etc… to me, it was the potential Resolute figures that stung the worst. The vintage fans are getting what they asked for in the form of the COBRA Island 7-Packs. Here’s really hoping that Hasbro has something up their sleeve for these unreleased Resolute figures as well, or that would be a HUGE hole left unfilled. No matter what the future of the Resolute animation is, these designs, these characters, and these interpretations have been amongst the best seen in a long time, and it would be a damn shame if they got left in the dust for a team of 5 guys in the same black armor. Hopefully Hasbro listens to that.
