The head sculpt is nothing short of sublime. The face features an expression that betrays the utter contempt that this warrior race feels toward all other cultures, and their innate sense of smug superiority. A beautiful set of antennae adorn the head, necessitating the use of the deeper/taller bubble for the Mego Andorian's packaging. The Type 2 body is cast in powder-blue (a body shared with another "Trek" Alien: the Keeper).
The figure is clothed in a white/silver bodysuit (reminiscent of the chain mail fabric used for Mego's Knights) with a brown vinyl doublet--detailed in silver diamonds--protecting the torso. The outfit is accessorized with a pair of brown boots, a pair of side-specific brown gloves, and a wide black plastic belt with a diamond molded in the center.
The Mego Romulan gets all the attention, partly due to the enemy race's popularity and partly due to the quality exhibited in the figure's execution. Andorians may not be as popular as Romulans, but they sure do strike an imposing figure with their ornate outfit and canonical accuracy. Consider the following as a measure of the greatness of this figure: there is no shortage of Mego customizers in the community that have tried their hand at building a better Klingon, Gorn, Talosian, Mugato, Cheron, or even a Romulan. However, custom Andorians are rarely if ever attempted. The implied attitude is this: What's the point in trying to improve on something that was done right the first time?
