Kenner 1977 TTP
In 1977 Bionic Man-ia (get it?) was still running so high that kids everywhere were asking Santa for a doll of a middle aged man in a bad sports coat (self included BTW). So the only logical thing to do was expand upon the licenses offerings (I'm writing this sipping out of a Bionic Man travel mug so hey, still works!).
So Kenner took the brand and stapled it to their popular concept of "Turbo Tower of Power", so Steve, Jaime and even Big Foot got some shiny motor cycles and went cruising. Sure, they all were super humans capable of running faster than a car, the upside is this is the closest we got a 3 3/4" Six Million Dollar Man line and it's pretty darn cool.
I had no idea Big Foot could drive, I also love that his car has his face on it..
I'm not sure what makes this a playset, still I love the Kneer packaging design.
