Blackstar Heroes

It's Saturday, 1984. Cartoons are over, cereal is eaten, bed is made, room is clean, and you've just been handed your weekly allowance of five dollars. Mom agrees to take you to the store so you can spend it. Saving money's for suckers.

You race down the toy aisles, and pore over the little plastic muscle-men. There it is! The new Laser-Light BLACKSTAR action figure you saw on TV. There's no laser, of course; you just thumb a wheel in the figure's back and sparks shoot into its abdomen, which lights up a translucent plastic jewel in the chest. Lasers! You pull out the five-dollar bill from your pocket and eye the price tag: $4.99. There's no sales tax in Oregon. Life is sweet.

Back home, you tear open your prize. Behind the figure in the blister pack is a cheaply-printed fold-out poster with the Blackstar heroes; John, Klone, Mara, and the Trobbits. You throw the poster on your bed, grab your new figure, shoot a few lasers, and commence vanquishing the forces of evil. Skeletor and Cobra Commander have formed a shaky alliance -- it's up to John Blackstar and his Starsword to turn the tide.


Super-huge printable version on the download link. Cheers, Saturday morning warriors.

This is brilliant! We're looking at doing a cartoon in the old Saturday morning cartoon style, and this is wonderful.
