Johnny Seven, Secret Sam And Agent Zero M

Even though, or just because of that, this looks and sounds quite strange from today's perspective, I wanted to share this "James Bond-ish" or rather "cold-war-ish" or just "war-ish" Johnny Seven vintage toy commercial that I stumbled upon again recently. Which by the way inspired the gun design of this older big-game hunter character sketch I did a couple of years ago.

Not forgetting Topper Toys' Secret Sam, Mattel's Agent Zero M (Zero M is the young Kurt Russel, right?) and American Toys' Dick Tracy Raygun Target Game:
