Six Million Dollar Man Enemy Maskatron
Some people get flowers or candy for their wedding anniversary... well, I'm not some people. I got a very unique and odd action figure that I had as a kid. The Six Million Dollar Man enemy action figure Maskatron!
I was only 6 or 7 years old when I got Maskatron. I was a big fan of the Six Million Dollar Man television show and had the Steve Austin action figure (and have it now) and the Bionic Bigfoot (and have in now) and then one day my parents bought me a Maskatron, a really cool looking robot figure with interchangeable arms and face plates. I remember as a kid thinking the figure looked amazing but was very difficult to play with as one of its action features was the fact that it basically "explodes". I don't think, as a kid, I understood the locking mechanism because as I look at this one I have now it seems much less fragile than I remember.
An interesting note about Maskatron is that the character never appeared in the Six Million Dollar Man television show. He was slated for the sixth season but the show was cancelled. In 2014, Dynamite Comics released a Six Million Dollar Man season 6 comic book series and prominently featured Maskatron in the series.
