    Oh yes! I was a big time Six Million Dollar Man fan back in the day! I never missed the TV show...even when it got weird with Bionic Bigfoot:confused:

    I had the action figure...the big one where you could look out of Steve Austin's bionic eye. I also had that odd rocket ship/science lab toy for Steve Austin...I forget what it was called right now but I can still picture it plain as day.

    I even had the Oscar Goldman action figure! Yes, even my creative 10 year old mind could find fun things to do with an action figure of a guy with a suit and briefcase. :p

    The 70s were a fun time to be a kid.

    Things like he man, transformers and those bendy WWF action figures are things I will always tie to an awesome childhood. I've also always been a gamer so I was always playing the old Atari 2600 :D go moon patrol and pacman!!!

    I had a plastic Geronimo indian figure. I lost it in the waves at the beach . Searched for hours. Was totally devastated.
    Thanks for bringing it up. (He mumbles sarcastically ) took many years of therapy to get over the loss.
    Any one know of a good shrink?

    I was such a tomboy I was always climbing trees and fences, riding my bike, playing ball and rough housing with the neighborhood kids. When I did go inside to play, I played Barbies. Barbie dream house, car, stage and whatever else she had to do. I played with Barbies for years! Old enough to know that when she and Ken would get in bed, she would wake up with a baby troll doll. I didn't know how it happened, but I knew they made a baby. Remember the tiny trolls that you put at the end of your pencil? Loved and collected those.
