SWAT Kats Action Set

Updated November 3rd, 2013 / In Official Content

Originally posted by Jordan McCall, he said he saw these on an eBay auction a few years back and came across the photos again on his hard drive that he had saved.

Updated September 19th, 2013 / In Blog, Miscellaneous

An article from Unleash The Fanboy gives a favorable review of the Radical Squadron and why the show is ready for a second chance: “Though not originally a cult classic (it was the number one syndicated animated show of 1994), SWAT Kats still has a very dedicated fan base.
