Lurchi My friend had these action figures. Detatchable mask, (plastic) steel girder, "gripping action", everything.
Looks like John Saxon. (And a little like Rudy Giuliani at 0:18)
B. Weed I think it is John Saxon-- apparently his character was replaced with a robot dupilcate at some point in the TV show.
And in trying to verify this, I'm a little taken aback to find that there is a Bionic Wiki.
Desidiosus I always found it amusing that girls played with dolls. Boys played with action figures.
kiint YER BLEEDING DOLLS DIDN'A COME WITH THEIR DAMN FACES COMEEN OFF NAW DID THEY EH?!? NOW THATS SOME FUCKING ACTION!!!
Spike Jonez I used to have the Steve Austin action figure as a kid. It was about the size of a Ken doll and it had a bionic eye peephole through his head and panels that came off on his arm and legs to show circuitry decals. And it was EXACTLY as cool as that commercial made it seem. :D
Bort That could actually be a commercial for all sorts of things: relaxed fit jeans, Bondo, the steelworkers' union. Just slap your logo on to the end and you're done.
