Default Super Comp - Six Million Dollar Man Complete Collection - 20/04/2012 - FINISHED

Woah!

Prepare to be blown away by the sheer epicness of this prize! Worth 200, this is possibly one of the biggest and best prizes we've ever given away! Fancy winning it? Then take a look at this....

WE CAN REBUILD HIM… WE HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY…

THE WORLDWIDE DEFINITIVE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN DVD COLLECTION.









For anyone growing up in the 1970s there were several TV series that could be described as “essential viewing”, but none were more deserving of that accolade than The Six Million Dollar Man, the TV series that mixed Bond-ian espionage action with sci-fi adventure and, along the way, became a pop culture institution. Now, The Six Million Dollar Man: The Complete Collection is coming to DVD as a 40-disc set (five of which are dedicated to extras and bonus features), featuring every episode from each of the show’s five seasons, plus the three original TV movies that started it all, along with the three further TV movies that followed in the late 1980s and early 90s. Additionally, this edition includes extensive stills galleries and episode guide booklets exclusive to the UK release, making this the world’s most definitive Six Million Dollar Man DVD collection.

Based on the novel “Cyborg” by Martin Caidin, and pre-dating the similarly cyborg-themed “The Terminator” and “Robocop” franchises by over a decade, The Six Million Dollar Man was one of the most popular and successful TV series of its era, propelling Lee Majors (already relatively well-known as a series regular in the Western series “The Big Valley” and “The Virginian”) into the realms of superstardom, becoming a merchandisers' dream and spawning an equally successful spin-off series in “The Bionic Woman”.

Majors stars as Colonel Steve Austin, a former astronaut who is seriously injured when the jet he is flying crashes. A man barely alive, Austin is “rebuilt” with bionic parts replacing his right arm, both legs and his left eye, enhancing his strength, speed and vision far beyond normal human capabilities. Following his recovery, he goes to work for the covert Office of Scientific Intelligence as a secret agent, where his regular missions involve not only bringing international criminals to justice but also investigating downed UFOs and taking on killer female androids and even the mythical creature, Bigfoot!

Co-starring Richard Anderson (The Fugitive; Perry Mason) as Austin’s supervisor Oscar Goldman and Martin E. Brooks (Dallas; McMillan & Wife) as scientist Dr. Rudy Wells, the series also features a host of guest stars including Lindsay Wagner, Farrah Fawcett-Majors, Kim Basinger, Martine Beswick, Sonny Bono, Louis Gossett, Jr., Erik Estrada, Stefanie Powers, John Saxon, William Shatner, George Takei, George Foreman, Donna Mills and Andre the Giant, amongst many others.







The 40-disc The Six Million Dollar Man: The Complete Collection (cert. PG) will be released on DVD (199.99) by Fabulous Films on 26th March 2012.

Special Features include: exclusive new interviews with Lee Majors and Lindsay Wagner; all three pilot movies of The Six Million Dollar Man; all three reunion movies of The Six Million Dollar Man; all crossover episodes of The Bionic Woman; 17 exclusive featurettes; audio commentaries; UK exclusive stills galleries; UK exclusive episode guide booklets.


We're giving away this box set to ONE very lucky person. All you have to do is...


So, the Six Million Dollar Man, for those not in the know, tells the tale of a guy who is given super human strength, speed etc after being 'built' with technology worth six million dollars. Now, what would happen if this was made today? What super human abilities would he have with the technology around now? OR on the other hand, what if we could only spend a couple of hundred on building him due to the economic recession? What would he be like then? Perhaps he'd run on Double A batteries or something sillier?

Share your thoughts, have some fun and the best entries will be picked next week (27th). I'll then put all those entries into a hat and will randomly select one winner.

Now the more entries you post (as long as they're really good!) the more chance you'll have of winning as all the best entries will be put into a hat, meaning your name could be in there several times.

Pictures get brownie points

GOOD LUCK!

Any questions, ask away!

Kyle

If the million dollar man was made today, with a budget of just one million, he'd be the chinese knock-off of the 3 billion dollar man

If made today, the series would have to be called THE SIX BILLION DOLLAR MAN as six million dollars would just about pay for petrol to keep him running for a week or two!

So Steve Austin, the first American astronaut to walk on the surface of the planet Mars, crashes in the desert whilst test piloting the Venutian module to be used in America's next planetary mission. His body is decimated, most of his bones broken, most of his body organs pulped, part of his brain left as so much grey goo. Yet somewhere within, scientists can still detect a tiny spark of life.

Enter Dr Rudy Wells and Project Cybertron, with Steve Austin the ideal test patient. Gentleman we can rebuild him, we can make the world's first cybertronic man. Better than he was before, better, stronger, faster...

By taking a tiny sample of DNA the Cybertron Project is able to perfectly clone Steve Austin, but combining a cybernetic interface with every single cell in his mind and body. Now Steve Austin can instantly communicate with any computer device in the entire world, can see through any single CCTV camera, satellite, television camera, anything at all connected to a computer.... he can listen to any surveillance device anywhere in the world, hack in to any mobile phone or landline conversation and any radio channel through his cybernetic hearing, fine tuning through a mass of complex circuitry performing the functions of a hundred million human brains in one...

Not only has the cybernetic interface given Steve Austin a mind beyond the most complex computer on the planet, its sophisticated metallic patterning has strengthened his body beyond that of any normal human. With legs able to run at speeds of 100 mph and jump 100 feet into the air, and arms able to punch through solid steel, Steve Austin truly has become a real life superhero, but still possessing human emotions and the character that made him the man he was before.

The great thing about Project Cybertron is that it does not affect the brain, does not drive the recipient insane, if that person is the correct choice, and Steve Austin is that man.

The Six Billion Dollar Man.

Invincible. Unstoppable.

Steve Austin, a man barely alive.... We can rebuild him. But, hey! It's 2012 and we don't need any of that outdated bionic crap anymore. Luckily, Steve had a good Medical Insurance plan and for the price of $200,000, with the latest advancements in micro surgery, laser eye treatment, muscular enhancement and facial reconstruction, here he is now..



And all Steve had to pay was a $1500 deductible!

Unfortunately, John Smith's Insurance plan wasn't so good, so this is the best we could do...

Today the Six Million Dollar man would be built using recycled aluminum for his exoskeleton with satellite receivers in his eyes so could have the ability to track his enemies in real time. His brain would consist of a super computer so new targeting and combat software can be uploaded in a matter of seconds. Finally, his muscles and skin would be made of perfectly bonded, impenetrable fibers.

Of course he would also be considered non profit and/or "environmentally friendly" so the government could get a couple tax deductions.
