All I Want for Retro-Christmas Countdown (10 Days Left...): Maskatron!


  1. Quite a fine "LP" toy ("Long Playing"), as it used to say on Kenner's packaging. You had to keep track of all the parts, however, because of the intentional "exploding robot" effect!

    Thank goodness for the Oscar Goldman mask; it saved you the expense of buying the OG doll/"action figure" that later came out!

    Is this post an indication you have The Six Million Dollar Man DVD set on top of your Xmas want list? :o)

  2. I would sell my soul to regain all of Six Million Dollar Man toys. Especially the Oscar Goldman with the exploding briefcase.

  3. John Saxon was a Maskatron? No way!!

  4. Hello my friends,

    Fang: I love the Six-Million Dollar Man line of figures as well. Just fantastic toys. I have a handful of 'em, though the one I really want is Sasquatch. But yes indeed, The DVD Set is high on my "wish" list for Christmas!

    David: Oh my gosh, I don't want to rub it in, but last month I got a complete Oscar Goldman and exploding brief case (that works) for under fifty dollars on E-Bay. So seriously, don't sell your soul, buddy, just haunt E-Bay!

    Filmfather: When people talk about Geekgasms, I think they are talking about commercials like this one: John Saxon in a bionic battle with Lee Majors. It doesn't get much better than that...

    Thanks for the comments, everyone!


  5. Holy crap! Looks like I may have to check e-bay out! Those Six Million Dollar Man toys were awesome.
