According to Nick and More, Transformers: Animated and Sigma 6 will be coming to the Hub…and that’s not necessarily a good thing!
Nah, I’m kidding…mostly. As much as I love the Sigma 6 concept and the Sigma 6 toys, even as a raging fanboy I cannot encourage folks to watch the Sigma 6 animated series. While it certainly did have some redeeming qualities (the computer generated vehicle battles were great, and Season 2 was a massive improvement over Season 1) the feel and tone of the series just felt totally wrong for G.I. Joe.
From Tunnel Rat becoming “King of the Ninjas” and having hamburger eating contests with Heavy Duty to the world-ravaging Cobra plot being foiled by robotic dog urine there were some pretty ridiculous points about the two seasons of Sigma 6.
BUT…there were some definite fun aspects, too. It wasn’t all bad I swear!
As proof of the coolness of some aspects of Sigma 6, Click the “Read the Rest of this Entry” link below for video clips from the series.
Yes, by and large the Sigma 6 series was a painful watch. Voice acting was pretty terrible, production values were a real mixed bag. It just wasn’t what the G.I. Joe brand needed in a mass media animated format to promote itself. But it wasn’t all bad…there were some cool spots.
A while ago, I posted a “Sigma 6 Celebration” about the Sigma 6 toyline and the redeeming factors of it. Within the confines of that celebration I provided recaps of both seasons of the animated series. I’m posting links to those recaps below, and also some of the better video clips from the series:
Enjoy some video clip highlights!
