Sigma Sixx was the coolest thing ever....
If they had done it in the ARAH/25th style... and in that size.. it would have been the best thing since the power rangers......
Hell the coolest thing since the playboy mansion for that matter LoL

Sigma Six personally wasn't my thing. When I got word that it was being produced by GONZO (Blue Submarine No 6, Hellsing, and many other popular anime), I was expecting a Joe series with that kind tone and edge. And then I found out it was a 4Kids show...it didn't have a chance.
I watched a few episodes, they were okay, but not for me. The character designs were tight, but the size and price point of the line turned me off.
I think Sigma Six deserves some credit, if only for keeping the GI Joe name out there for a new generation. And it was GI Joe's big return to television. Not since GI Joe Excrem- um Extreme, had there been a series. So even though I'm not a big fan, Sigma Six, in my opinion, does have an important spot in GI Joe history.

I Actually Didnt Mind Sigma Six
I Collected Them All, Customized A Bunch And Stil Have Them On Display,
Im Sure What Was Going On Over Here, But Months Before Sigma Six Came Out , Everyone On Another Board Were Freaking Out Over
Marvel Legend Style Joes,
Not That Sigma Six Ever Compared To Marvel Legends But I Think , Imo, That Sigma Six Was Hasbros Attempt To Make
A "new Generation" Gi Joe Andalso Appease Our Want For Joes Styled Some What Like Marvel Legends,
My Only Complaint With Sigma Six Was They Couldve Stayed Loyal To All The Figures And Kept The Personas
Of All Of Them, Mainly,
Flint And The I.g. &, Bats
And They Couldve Given Us The Baroness And Scarllet In The Full Size Figures

S6 got me back into collecting Joes...I like many of you collected ARAH as a kid back in the '80s. I had always kept an eye on a "relaunch" of the brand, checking out the latest at the local Toys 'r Us and other brick and mortars. The Valor vs. Venom and other lines never really nailed it for me and did not get me to collect again. I noticed the Sigma line at Walmart and was intrigued by them - the new dimensions (8" seemed to be the logical choice with most popular figure lines being around this size - Spawn, Marvel, LOTR, etc - bigger than the traditional 3 3/4" and smaller than the doll size 12"). I saw it more as a "reimagining" of the line, paying homage to the Joe mythos with many of the characters and taking design cues from the figures and cartoon remembered so fondly. 52 S6 figures later, I am back into collecting G.I. Joe, and now transitioning to the new line, quickly scooping up the 25th Anniversary figs and vehicles. I just hope that Hasbro doesn't get too greedy and go the Star Wars route - reissuing the same character under different waves.
I am sad to see S6 end, but it was getting too repetitive - any time you need to make multiple versions of the same character, its time to pack it up (too many Dukes, Storm Shadows and Snake-Eyes). Branching out into the different teams - Adventure, military, etc. was also not a smart move and caused confusion (two Recondos?). They should have stuck with just updating characters with the S6 styling. I think time will show S6 as great collectibles, especially since you cannont run to the store and pick one up anymore.

I actually think S6 would still be around. Sales were supposedly good. I think the 2.5 stuff hurt the line a bit, but ultimately I think the 25th Anniversary stuff is what killed the line.
Sales were good for S6, but paled in comparison to the hype and interest and ultimately sales that the 25th stuff got. Instead of juggling several properties, Hasbro decided to go full bore with the 25th and kill the S6.
I love the idea of the S6 stuff being more or less the future of the 12" line though. The evolution of it, if you will. And I hope much like hte 12" stuff, it makes a comeback from time to time.

I don't think it was a short term fix. Sigma 6 brought me back into collecting Joes and the packaging for the 25th ann. kept me in.
I truly believe what killed the line was the lack of the cartoon and the price point.
Yo Joe! Convoy Go!
