The Six Million Dollar Man himself, Lee Majors will be one of the featured guests at the next Planet Comicon comic book and pop culture convention in Kansas City, Missouri. Propelled to sci-fi icon status in the 1970s because of his five-year stint as the astronaut Steve Austin who became the first modern cyborg, Majors was already known to Western fans for his roles on The Big Valley and The Virginian. And the action figure with his likeness remains one of the best-selling toys of all time.
In his post-borg years Majors starred as stuntman Colt Seavers in The Fall Guy. Not a year has gone by since his five years on The Fall Guy that Majors hasn’t appeared as a guest actor on TV series after TV series, including having a key role in Season 2 of TNT’s Dallas reboot this year.
After meeting up with the Bionic Woman Lindsay Wagner at Planet Comicon 2013, we’re doubly psyched to see one of our favorite borg actors in person. We’re looking forward to meeting the man who sported that red track suit and, backed by the sound effects and famous techno theme song, became the guy that OSI’s Oscar Goldman promised us each week “Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the
capability to build the world’s first bionic man. Steve Austin will be that man. Better than he was before. Better, stronger, faster.”
Planet Comicon 2014 will be held in Kansas City’s giant Bartle Hall, March 14-16. Ticket sales will begin December 1, 2013. Check out the Planet Comicon website link at the bottom of the borg.com home page in the coming weeks for more announcements. Planet Comicon 2014 promises to be the biggest show in more than a decade of being one of the Midwest’s premier fan conventions. borg.com will again have a presence at the show with updates all weekend.
