Kenner The Six Million Dollar Man: Bionic Adventure Set #2

BIONIC ADVENTURE: OSI Undercover Assignment Set

This is another one of the Bionic Adventure outfits that Kenner released for the Six Million Dollar Man. This time, Steve's going undercover...for a 1976 JC Penney catalog photo shoot, I presume. He's wearing denim from top to bottom and he's ready for his close-up.

This set includes "Leisure Denim Suit, watch, brown shoes, and portable bionic system."

At least this time, the OSI had the good sense to not include the giant emblem on the chest. After all, Steve's undercover in this one. That's a good thing, too, because this outfit just screams "Regular bionics here...move along." This set always seemed like a such a gip compared to the much cooler other Bionic Adventure sets...and it was definitely the peg warmer of the three.

The cardback on this example has seen better days.


  1. What is the "portable Bionic system"?

    Looks to me that he is using his bionics to power an a.m. radio.

  2. I never thought of it that way. That's exactly what it looks like!!

    Thanks for the laugh.

  3. That picture takes on a whole new connotation when you look at it and think of Steve just chillin' out at the wharf listening to some tunes on his bionic radio.

  4. I didn't knew they did cloths alone for the figure... Today what they do is release a whole new action figure each time they think of something new, just to make us spend more money... this is much better.
