Here is the backstory that Bob Conge based his custom on:
"Make Love Not War"
It all began that black and stormy night when Teddy was killed. He became separated from his squad while on a recon patrol and lost his head, literally.
This is when Teddy, free from earthly concerns, saw the light. A pink light actually and it was flashing "Make Love Not War".
His first concern was to tell his best friend "T" of this wondrous revelation. T was still on the front lines when the ghost of Teddy appeared to him as a prophetic white bear head floating about 4 feet off the ground.
T saw the light right away and transformed himself into Brigadier General Passion. He then fashioned the Love Gun from some old military parts for Teddy to command. Filling the Love Gun and his back pack tank with the pink Empathy Gas ( as invented by John Lennon in 1971 ), T and Teddy embarked to save the world from its self.
