Before RoboCop or Cyborg there was the original half man/ half machine... Steve Austin aka The Six Million Dollar Man. Dubbed the Bionic Man and deemed the ultimate kick ass action figure by me and my brother we had many fun filled adventures with this toy. We would watch the weekly TV show and even bought the bubble gum trading cards. You know the cards... 5 or 6 in a pack and a stick of gum so hard it would crumble when you bite it. They even made a spin off series The Bionic Woman but it wasn't as good as the original. Most memorable episode was the one where he fought Big Foot. Ah the 70's... we were kids, played hard and life was good.
