  1. Hi TVTA, the Kenner Six Million Dollar Man toys were the ones I discussed with you a while back! I had two Col Austin figures and the Bionic Transport and Repair Station. You might remember I mentioned there were two versions of Steve Austin, one had a rubberised skin on it’s bionic arm which rolled up to reveal the “bionic” parts whilst the either later or cheaper version didn’t have the sleeve. Not only could you reveal the bionic parts but they were removable as little rectangular blocks and each had a hole to attach the diagnostic cables/pipes seen on the Transport/Repair Station.
    In the picture you can see Steve Austin laid on the Repair station and above him are two pieces of “equipment”, one is the rocket booster plate (blue) that doubled as an operating theatre lighting lamp and had a magnifying glass built into it. The second is a white rectangular panel with the cables attached, this was meant to be an X-Ray device and there was a small window with a picture wheel located beneath it. The picture wheel had glow-in-the-dark images of body parts and you could turn a dial and the pictures spun round so you could X-Ray various parts! Great play features, great post!

    • Good info FT. I had the rolled up skin version. Early versions of Steve Austin came with either a girder accessory or the engine block (as seen is the featured ad), which Steve lifted by pressing the button on his back. Mine had the engine block. Nowadays its possible to buy reproduction parts for the doll – like his clothing and the roll back skin. Probably can get the bionic mudules too.
      Was such a great toy, and I managed to hold on to mine right up until about 12 years ago when I lost him in a house move 😦 Still have his red trainers though lol.

      • Hi TVTA, I am always open for saber design suggestions, you can drop me a message on my email. Other viewers/readers can leave me a message on my contact page.
        And in response to your other comment about Six Million Dollar Man accessories I remember those training shoes….they always remind me of Sonic the Hedgehog even though Steve Austin wore them first!

  2. Tintin and Galaxy Rangers! Man, that made me smile. I used to pick up all the Tintin books from the library when I was younger… loved them. Those and the Asterix books made up my three choices.

    As for the Galaxy Rangers, we could be doing with a reboot. Live action space western would be a real treat.

    • Tintin and Asterix books were popular both at our public library and even the titchy school library we had. Loved them, and the animations when they were on TV.

      The return of Galaxy Rangers would be good! Was pleased to find that advert of the toy figures for the collection πŸ™‚

  3. I cycle to and from work in the morning… so I need that bat-tastic Bathorn in my life!! (It’d better play the classic Adam West theme when you depress the button, or I shall be mightily Bat-disappointed!)

    • Yes, 1962 advertising! Barbie’s a grand dame now. I have another 1962 booklet of hers to post up soon, along with a booklet of one of her clone dolls – Babs, Randy & Bill (Barbie, Skipper and Ken on the cheap) πŸ™‚
