Steve's friend, Kuroda, returns to ask Steve's help in finding a wolf boy that was spotted on the island Hoyoko. Oscar is against Steve going, but Steve has an angle Oscar can't argue with. The wolf boy may be the son of an American diplomat who died, along with his wife, many years before. Their son was never found. But there's treachery afoot as another team of hunters are searching the island for the wolf boy and they're not there to help him. What secret does the wolf boy hold?

The figures are sculpted in a retro Kenner style, while crude, they perfectly encapsulate what the figures would have looked like in 1978, that’s the key here. Also, the likeness is terrific, Steve captures Lee Majors simply and Bigfoot looks like the original Kenner figure, shrunk down in size. Perfect!

Paul has mentioned on the podcast several times that we are in the middle of a Bionic Renaissance. There are a number of merchandising opportunities that have helped to spark the nostalgia of The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman. Whether it's Dynamite Comics Bionic Man and Bionic Woman comics or Rittenhouse's new collectable card series or items like the Six Million Dollar Man vanity plate cover for your car, there is more than enough out there to make an old or new bionic fan happy.

For good or ill, I am now a (proud?) owner of "The Norseman", starring Lee Majors, on DVD. Loved it when I was a kid, but I'm not a kid anymore.
1) It co-stars Susie Coelho, who guest-starred on The Six Million Dollar Man episode "The Song and Dance Spy".
2) I co-hosted the up-coming Cyborgs Bionic Podcast that covered the SMDM episode "The Song and Dance Spy".
3) It also co-stars Denny Miller, who guest-starred on the SMDM episodes "The Pal-Mir Escort" and "Target in the Sky".
4) I co-hosted the Cyborgs Bionic Podcast that covered the SMDM episode "The Pal-Mir Escort" and will be co-hosting the Cyborgs Podcast for "Target in the Sky" in the near future.
5) Much of the above is pure coincidence.

Before there was Stone Cold, there was the Six Million Dollar Man, a bionic wonder who hit high speeds in slo-mo and threw cars that sounded like missiles as they sailed across the 1970s TV screen.
Now that cornerstone of Superhero TV, Six Million Dollar Man, will celebrate its 40th anniversary and finally have a sixth season courtesy of Dynamite Entertainment in a new comic book by writer Jim Kuhoric and artist Juan Antonio Ramirez.

At risk of being an old fuddy-duddy, I'm not that enamored of the cartoony "bionic babies" artwork on some of these covers. One of these covers is amazing, the other is immature and silly. One I would be proud to read in public and invite people to comment, the other not so much.
