She’s breaking up! She’s breaking up!

“Steve Austin, astronaut. A man barely alive. Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to make the world’s first bionic man. Steve Austin will be that man. Better than he was before. Better, stronger, faster!”

… so went the opening lines from the Six Million Dollar man TV series.

Produced by Kenner in the US in 1975, The ‘Colonel Steve Austin’ 13 inch action doll complete with bionic eye and removable bionic modules was based on the popular TV show character starring Lee Majors. The doll became an instant toy hit and was licensed around the world along with additional figures including Jamie Sommers ( the Bionic Woman – for which a separate TV series was made), Oscar Goldman, Maskatron and others. Clothing, accessories and playsets were also available.

    I love the ads for the Six Million Dollar Man toy line. So colorful.

    I have an ad for the mission control center playset on my Flickr stream.
