I was thinking about toy lines in the 70s, and how often times the properties had no real back story other than, "These are the good guys, these are the bad guys - and they fight!" A lot of times the pathos and nature of any given character was largely determined by your own imagination. It is my opinion that this style of play fostered creativity in the children of that generation, something that is probably largely lost in today's world, since every property has some kind of cartoon or movie or some other kind of franchise to help push the merchandise, in which the characters and their motivations are clearly defined. I am just thankful that there are still children who choose to play with toys at all, what with all the other distractions that modern life has to offer them.
Anyway, I wanted to do a tribute to that style of 70's toy, and so here I offer you the Andorian Adventurer. I know as much about him as you do, which is basically nothing (other than what you can deduce by looking at him). It's up to you to decide who he is, what he does, and why he does it. Enjoy!
