The BIonic Age

The BIonic Age

Christmas always reminds me of the Bionic Man, I think it’s because he was pricier than Mego or Big Jim.

I honestly got every Bionic toy I had at Christmas and it was a sweet three years, let me tell you.

    I still have the Six Million Dollar Man figure I got for Christmas in 1975, as well as photos, a home movie, and an audio tape recording of that Christmas. It was definitely a Bionic Christmas, but I also got Mego Super Heroes, Mego Wizard of Oz, and my sister got Growing Up Skipper and the Family Treehouse (her son plays with it now).

    That's a nice ad. I have everything but the Mission Control Center and the Fortress of Solitude (I used to have both!)
