    Hi TVTA, Sketch-A-Graph! I remember that and I think we had a conversation about it a while back (Adams Technical drawing device). I also had the Oscar Goldman figure from the Six Million Dollar Man range. That “exploding booby trap” briefcase was dangerous…if used incorrectly it could have your finger off just like a shark!

      Greetings FT. I always hear good things about the Oscar Goldman figure and would have liked that one along with Maskatron. I had the Steve Austin figure that came with the engine he could lift with his bionic arm. It was a great toy line by Kenner.

        Hi TVTA, yes me and my brother had a Steve Austin each but there was a slight difference between the two. There was one that had a rubberised skin that you had to roll up to expose the “bionics” and one without. The version without the skin didn’t look as good and I think a bit cheaper. We also had the Mission Pod Rocket/Repair Station . It was shaped as a space rocket but once you removed the booster base and the nose cone you could unfold the cylindrical section to form an operating table on legs. You had lots of tubes to attach to Austin to perform maintenance on him!
