One-Year Anniversary!

It was a year ago today that regular posts began here on the Give-A-Show Blog! At the time, I honestly wondered if I'd be able to keep my collection growing to last a full year... but I think that thanks to Kevin Law's sharing his Chad Valley collection (even doing a few slide strips per day when I feature those), we should still be able to go three or four months before I run out!

Kenner 1973 Six Million Dollar Man Set - Checklist

It's Bionic Month at the Give-A-Show Blog! Well, a few Bionic Weeks, anyway, and we're starting out with the 1973 Kenner Six Million Dollar Man set! Today, the checklist, but tomorrow, part one, featuring the first four slides from this set! That's right, we'll get through this set in four days... and then it'll be time for the Bionic Woman Set from 1974... and then, the Chad Valley Bionic Sets!

1973 — Six Million Dollar Man Set #35109
Note: This may have been the first set produced without cardboard frames! It's also possible this set may have been originally released in 1973 with standard cardboard frames, and then released again when the cardboard frames were on their way out, and that's the copy I have.

Oddly, so far I haven't found any evidence that Kenner produced any other Give-A-Show sets (at least, new ones) in 1973 other than this one! 1974, on the othe rhhand, had at least 4 sets (including the Bionic Woman one)!
