Will the new MacGyver MT be a SAK?
« on: November 14, 2012, 10:15:08 PM »
Hollywood is planning to make a new MacGyver movie.
http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/macgyver-movie-be-directed-by-389498

The big question is: will he still be using SAKs?  :think:
Personally I hope he will. But I'm worried they might try to make some money by selling the rights for "the MacGyver tool" to the highest bidder. If they do I hope one of the serious brands gets the deal. (and if Gerber gets it, I hope they dont print Macgyver on the suspension and try sell it as the ultimate MacGyver tool :twak:)

Probably not. The question has popped up, and the creator's answer was something along the lines of "SAKs were good for their day".  :rant:  :twak:

I would expect a Leatherman, or some line of tools stamped "McG" instead of "BG".

Leatherman is quite proud of the fact that some time in the 7th season Mac used a Leatherman.  I haven't seen the episode myself, but I wouldn't be surprised to hear Leatherman is doing their best to chase this one down.

Really? Thats cool, but I for sure never noticed.  What would be the likely leatherman model from 1992?  I should rewatch those for nostalgia sometime.

I think that blurb by Leatherman, about MacGyver carried a leatherman in 1993 was meaning the actor himself carried it as a cycling tool, which I found a reference too, but he never used it on the show.

Edit: Ok you had me super curious on this one.  I found a reference to a PST being used in season three.. but by the enemy chick trying to kill MacGyver, not by Mac.  Very telling eh, the good guy using a SAK, the evil woman using a Leatherman!  :pok:

I just confirmed it, I looked up the episode on netflix, here are some screen caps.  She uses a PST to install some device in an electrical outlet.

 I REALLY wish they would leave this franchise alone if Richard Dean Anderson and Lee Zlotoff are not involved. I like the older Mac.

I may have to try that.  I have been thinking about giving it a shot but never got around to it.

My prediction is that it'll be a Gerber special edition 'McGyver Ultimate Multitool'... which, of course, is actually a Suspension with bright red plastic handles.  :whistle:

The SAK is such an iconic part of MacGyver I would hope the makers would be sensible enough to keep it.  It would be like making the A-Team without the GMC van. ::)

Modern remakes don't really seem to care much about tradition when it comes to the classics they are ripping off. I'm kind of surprised the General Lee in the Johnny Knoxville remake of the Dukes of Hazzard hadn't been swapped out for a modern Dodge... or even a Honda Civic. After all, Bumblebee was named that because he was a yellow VW Bug- the name doesn't make much sense if he's a Camaro.

It'll all boil down to whatever company ponies up the most cash for the production company.

That would be so true!  If he had one of his, the show might still be on! LOL

I'm betting it'll be a Powerlock that he'll get in the movie from "Gunny" doing a cameo....

Thanks for the link.  It was fun to see Mac again.
