Episode 492

Read the comic here.

Yes, in answer to all the requests, we're going back to cover Scotch's origin. Sort of.

Woo-hoo! I get the first crack at the comments!

At last, the origin of Scotch and the 'other cola frog' will be revealed... and it only took what, 480-something episodes? I guess good things DO come to those who wait. :)

Now all we need is some backstory on his sidekick Whiskey -- oh, wait, Whiskey "isn't" a sidekick... ;)

Christopher Doyle said...

Uncle Servo:
Actually, Whiskey's backstory (at least some of it) has been plotted out as part of the next big arc. It's...a bit shocking.

I'm actually a bit worried...I have a lot of story to cover before December...and I still don't know for sure if LEGO is releasing the Castle Advent calendar that we saw earlier this year. (Mary Sue's return hinges on that product release.) It make plotting in the long run a bit tricky.

Chris:
i knew whiskey had a backstory!!!
yay!!!! after we're done with that you do Scotch's before the world ends

Today the Olympics start! I have no clue why they're holding them in China, though. I mean, with American athletes standing for freedom and all in China, the country with Thought police against it, that doesn't seem very wise.

Nick said...

There are more than just Americans and Chinese people in the world, star.

Maarten said...

For one, there are Scottish people.

Christopher Doyle said...

Maarten,

No, Scotch is a FROG.
/haven't you been paying attention at all?

Nick said...

Chris we're talking about the Olympics/countries.
Haven't you been paying any attention at all? :P

Christopher Doyle said...

Nick,

Are you saying frogs aren't allowed into the Olympics? Boy, are the French going to be pissed.

Nick said...

Hmm, frog Olympics... Sounds better than the real thing, in my opinion.

Back on topic.

Chris:

Yes they are making another City Advent Calender but I'm to lazy to give a link. Just search it on Flickr.

Also they're having all new jobs and accesories. Maybe they read you're blog posts?

Christopher Doyle said...

Dave:

Yeah, I've seen the photos of the Advent set - but the question remains if it'll be released (and released in the US).

For example the Castle Wizard mini-set was released overseas but not in the US. Photos galore exist...but I sure don't have one.

I've seen the updated CITY calendar as well...it's not too bad, but still...CITY....*yawn*

I can't wait, Snowman and a snowmobile!

Also, it will spoil them for you, don't look if you want to be surprised.

Christopher Doyle said...

Nick:

Yeah, but notice who's NOT in that set. Again.

Nick said...

Yeah, that's annoying. I'm just glad they actually have more christmassy things that are more than just the last door.

Geoffrey said...

I guess Mary Sue's return hinges on whether or not there's a suitable minifig for her to return as - and whether it's in the Advent calendar set or not, Chris?

I think relying on an Advent calendar to bring someone back is silly. Surely there's gotta be a better way for Mary Sue to return? The current lot are in a time machine and they're not using it? Well, you get the drift.

Nick said...

I'm gonna guess "Mary went back in time somehow" since one of the advent calendar minifigs looks like her.

Christopher Doyle said...

Geoffrey:

The key phrase here is, as you put it, "relying on an Advent calendar to bring someone back is silly"

if I did things in a neat and orderly manner the strip would be an adventure story, not a series of wacky misadventures....
*rolls eyes*

dark whisky said...

I been here for a long time, never commenting, just watching and I just made a new legendary question....will whiskey ever find "new love".

Seeing that mary sue might come back just makes me so curious,least you could do is give out hints.

splash1 said...

Chris:
please don't bring Mary Sue back, i don't like her at all.

Dark Whiskey:
so, you're back?

Uncle Servo said...

What's the matter Splash? You got something against the resident LEGO-based dominatrix turned Batmobile thief? :)
