What could have been the cause of the transformation, the opportunity to explore each other’s past and how their roles have changed them, is missed. Between the showiness that characterized the franchise in its time and these figures built (or rebuilt) hastily to celebrate 30 years of history, there is more nostalgic than effective commemoration.
