Six Million Dollar Man Fan Club Kit

Six Million Dollar Man Fan Club Kit

So let me paint the picture, it’s 1976 and my mother comes rushing into my room with this card and tells me if I fill it out, I’ll get an autographed picture of Steve Austin and all kinds of other neat stuff for free! I agree it’s pretty great and quickly store the card in my desk to be filled out at a later date because I WAS SO BUSY AT SIX YEARS OF AGE.
Flash forward a few months and a school chum shows me the AWESOME Six Million Dollar Man stuff he got. You’d think this would have been a valuable lesson that would have haunted me for a lifetime but no, my bill-paying skills still just barely keep the wolves away. It took me 34 years to finally make this kit mine.

First off you get a little laminated badge that kind of pimps the Kenner brand a little, seems like preaching to the converted but I’m not complaining.
Something you should carry in your wallet all the times.
I never really tire of this graphic and getting it as a big sticker is just wonderful.
I love this art, I’m not sure if Kenner used it anywhere else (I don’t have a large Bionic collection)
If you click on this it’ll open larger so you can print it out and put your name on it. I want to point out the sad fact that I have no idea where my University diploma is but I have one of these on my wall.

Ah yeah Money shot! I may not have Lee Majors autograph (hopefully someday) but I do have Col. Steve Austin’s.  Advantage: Brian.

    You were lucky… I'm still waiting for mine (I got hosed on the Gold Cylon Commander offer, as well).

    Like those toy ads in the back of those old 70's comic books. I wish I could still get them too!

    That jacket in the autographed photo… with the Skylab patch… is really awesome.

    I got this fan club kit when it came out…and still have it! I just had it out yesterday, showing it to my wife. So cool to see it on this website! Keep up the good work, Plaid Stallions!!

    My brother had this. I didn't have a Steve Austin figure and wasn't interested in the club. I was loyal to my GI Joes and was content with my Atomic Man figure. However they often teamed up on missions 🙂

    I have the fan club kit for both the six million dollar man and the bionic woman in original envelopes, they are both in 100 % mint shape, no discoloring what so ever. I received them in lot sale with about 30 other SMDM items.
    I keep everything under glass out of the light.
    Anyway, I just thought I would share this.

    Some (but obviously not all) photos in the membership kits were signed by Lee Majors himself… very, very cool of him. (He talks about it here: http://www.vanityfair.com/online/oscars/2010/11/bionic-man-lee-majors-does-not-like-bionic-sound-effects)

    I was a member as well. I had that sticker for years from my teens into my late 20s

    I had the kit as well but mine did not have the badge or extra sticker. It along with my other cool stuff disappeared in the infamous garage sale of 1979 🙁
