So, many of you know that Hasbro is pulling all the 3 1/4" Joes from stores to replace them with a larger version called "Sigma Six." They will however, keep selling you smaller joes online. Toynewsi, has a review of the first wave,
which I haven't bothered reading yet. But, what I was taken by were the images the reviewers have made - cinematic dioramas with great framing and fields of focus - which on one hand are strong in any formal sense, but also bring me back to a great feeling of nostalgia...playing Joes in the high grasses and muddy pits of my back yard. I especially like this one, which I think is referring to Dr. Mindbender assembling Serpentor.
