Yeah this is a great piece I also love his 70’s Action Figures piece. http://dusty-abell.deviantart.com/art/ACTION-FIGURES-CLASSIC-70-S-55272976

Jeez Cronin, you are really hitting the ground running in 2010. This is great!

Is the guy to the left of the Lou Ferrigno Hulk supposed to be Bill Bixby?

That’d be my guess, yes.

An absolutely incredible illustration! Thanks for the link.

And, wow, everyone looks so happy. The Imperious Leader from Battlestar Galactica looks happy. The Giant Robot From Doctor Who looks happy. I bet that underneath all that armored shell, even the Dalek is cracking a smile :)

His men look so close to reference while his women look absolutely nothing like the actresses they’re based on (Wilma from Buck Rogers and Cathy Lee Crosby’s Wonder Woman particularly). And I hate to nitpick, but The Greatest American Hero started in 1981!

He fudged on each end. Twiki’s holding the Spindrift from Land of the Giants, which I believe was 1968-69.

QUARK!!!!!!

And why does Steve Austin look like Brock Samson undercover?

Yeah, the moment I spotted him I thought the Greatest American Hero didn’t belong there, but I couldn’t remember precisely when that show was on.
I didn’t even notice Quark until he was pointed out. I’m so glad he was included.

Why does The Man From Atlantis have Rocky Balboa’s body? Patrick Duffy never had pecks like that.
