Wow! This came outta nowhere!

I'm very excited by this announcement. These are exactly what I wish came out back in the day. I loved my old 12" 6MDM Kenner figures, but my love for 3-3/4" figures was strong even in the '70s.

I'm watching these with great interest.

I thought they looked great too. Apparently Zica used some former Kenner employees to sculpt these. They look a lot like the unreleased Kenner protoypes from back in the day: http://forum.rebelscum.com/t957845-2/

We live in amazing times. I can't believe I can now bus a Steve Austin vs Bigfoot set.

I am so in for these. Someone also needs to do a good retro BSG line.

I really like these! BBTS has them listed @ $19.99 ea, that is kinda expensive for 3.75" figures ... I hope pricing doesn't "kill" the line ... I'd love to see some future waves.

There's also a special pre-order deal, with Red Track Suit Steve Austin, Bionic Bigfoot, and Blue Tracksuit Steve Austin, for $49.99. They come out to around $16 bucks each that way. I think that's a pretty good price for figures from an indie toy company like this. You can't expect them to be as cheap as something mass-produced by Hasbro or Mattel. I plan on ordering at least one set.

I really, really dig these. I used to have some of the old school Six Million Dollar Man toys back in the day. I had the big Bigfoot, and that tank-thing with the hatches and the claw in front. Anyway...

I haven't watched anything Bionic-related for quite a while. So, just how extensive could this line get? I mean, there's maybe a few Steve Austin outfits, Oscar Goldman, the other scientist dude. Jaime Summers, the Bionic Woman and the fembots. Outside of that, what other characters could we see?
