Childhood in Kuwait Means: Bionic Six Action Figures

By | May 22, 2011

As a child of the 80’s I was obsessed with the Bionics Six cartoon shown on KTV2 every week. It must have been 1987 when I waited for a new episode every week and recorded them, replayed them over and over, dreamt about them all the time, and eventually collecting their toys.

I still have the toys I collected and the video tapes I recorded. The only action figures toy missing is that of mechanic but it belonged to my brother who ruined toy so I guess it was bound to be lost. Benji I got from the little toy store by al3alamiya in Salmiya. Meg I got from a Kentucky Fried Chicken kids meals. I am not sure about Madam O because it belonged to my sister and I am glad I salvaged her.

For some reason it seemed to be that I am the only one who actually remembers Bionic Six in Q8! I wonder why is that? I loved them and I still do, hence why I cherish their toys and video tapes still.

Do you remember Bionic Six? Did you have their toys?

      ee Thundercats is another story all together… me and my brother had all their action toys plus the car plus the castle… there was some light in the castle that I am guessing was supposed to project the Thundercat sign but we never got around to operating it madry laish… 7safa 3lehom wallah :(

    Bionic Six was one of my favorite cartoons and I also got a few toy figures from KFC and a few from other toy shops.

    “Bionic Six (my fav)”

    Sadly I lost ALL my toys during the Gulf War since I had to leave everything behind. That includes ALL my Matchbox and Hot Wheels cars (I had like a million), ALL my LEGO, ALL my Thunder Cat and He Man toys and ALL my Bionic Six stuff :(

      aww you never recovered any of them?! The Iraqis were living in our house and pretty much stole every thing but miraculously the thundercats toys and the bionic six survived! i wonder why they didn’t steal them like the rest of the stuff? Our video tapes were hidden by my father’s friend underneath the stairs in a place where they wouldn’t suspect so we salvaged those as well…
