For those that didn't want to spend the money on the whole box set, just read this via The Digital Bits site:


In other news today, Universal has officially set The Six Million Dollar Man: Season 1 for DVD release on 11/29. The 6-disc set should be identical to the discs in the exclusive TimeLife edition, including 13 episodes, all 3 made-for-TV movies and 2 hours worth of bonus additional content.

Yeah. Thankfully, that's pretty typical for a lot of studios now. They keep the set exclusive for a year, then start releasing it to retail.

First week of October, and Bionic Woman season 3 hits. Bionic tv goodness will be complete cheers

I don't see any UK release dates yet.

You might want to try asking Time Life if they are working on a UK release and see if they reply. Here is their email contact form link:

Aww, man! All I had was the "base" Steve Austin figure with the rachet action lifting arm (covered in a flesh colored "condom" that revealed 2 wimpy acrylic pieces with circuit patterned decals) and the John Saxon inspired "Maskatron" android. I so wanted the "special missions" arms and legs that looked so much more "bionic".

Of course, my grandmother made me sell them in a yard sale so Mogg only knows what happened to them.

Sincerely,

Bill

I used to have a LED display SMDM digital watch, which were given to my brothers back in '79, I kept one until we moved house and afterwards spent months looking for it only to find out it had been recently thrown in the rubbish. Before it had lay amongst my sister's toy box. I do know it was a new style for gadget watches at the time. It showed the word,'BIONIC' on the face and had a red tint LED screen below it. I've never seen it anywhere else!

I dug out my Steve Austin action figure as i finish up my viewing of the two series. He still lifts his arm. I also found Oscar and Jamie, and the special arms and legs. Jamie needs some clean up, as her face is discolored. Oscar's briefcase will still explode and I still have the bionic files in it. I wonder if anyone makes replacement skins for the arms. Mine are long since crumbled to dust.

I've kinda stop collecting Bionic gear for a while now but if there's anything i really want it would be those new DVDs that are remastered and uncut. Living in the U.K. we'll be waiting and waiting...But besides them it would be the K.B.Penny Venus Space Probe and the Last Issue with sonic arm. Boxed of course.

Just finished watching Bionic Ever After?, the last of the bionic movies, and the last time we ever saw Steve Austin and Jamie. This wraps up my viewing of all 8 Bionic seasons that started last December when I got the Six Million Dollar Man DVD set. I am kind of sad.

Over here in the U.K. they're showing re runs of 'The Fall Guy' I have to say I do enjoy watching them especially when I hear that catchy theme tune. A lot of the guest stars and extras in this fondly remembered series have turned up throughout both Bionic shows. One of my favourite 'Larson' productions.

It's released by Fabulous Films in the UK and includes a few extras not in the US set (printed episode guide--not just titles, photos, etc)

It's on amazon.co.uk at 143.97. Release date has been changed to 26th March.

By the way, Bionic fans might like to know that Biff Bang Pow are making new Six Million Dollar Man ACTION FIGURES! They are "Mego-style" (like their Doctor Who range). Initial figures are, as I recall, Steve, Oscar, Bigfoot and Fembot!

it was an unrelated cartoon series that ran in syndication from the late '80s and may have had an action figure line as a tie-in.

Just read the fantastic news for the UK DVD release. Thanks for the pleasing info,SSkinner. Again, like the Daemons, bonus releases on my birthday. Yippie.
As for B6 i remember that cartoon but the Tarzan cartoon used 'Bionic sound effects' whenever he lept or swang in the jungle. I'm sure it was also used in 'Hulk' toons aswell.

Yes, I watched the cartoon, and yes, I had the action figures of the Bionic Six. When it was out it was super popular, and the action figures were almost like trading cards. It didn't last very long, but I always wondered why they didnt' do more cartoons like that.
