Episode 593

Read the comic here.

Today's Humor is a bit of a LEGO Meta joke. Despite the hoards of Trolls released by LEGO in 2008, every single one of them has the same face. Now, a sad part of racism is the statement "[whatever group] all look alike to me!" LEGO has made it true for the Trolls.

I know there's at least one new Troll face on the way in 2009 - the Female Shaman. Here's hoping the rank-and-file also get some individuality.

Oh. I should point out this cool gallery of Troll-alternates using existing LEGO faces. I've had several of these on hand for use with Scotch, but the opportunity hasn't arisen yet.

I dare Chris to find a use for the Squidward troll face on Scotch. ;)

At least now that there are alternates hopefully TLG will "see the light" and consider making alien faces in more than just sand green colors.

Personally, I'd like to see a full range of alien expressions that can complement the existing faces that aren't human, and don't use a yellow or light flesh minifig head.

Huh, I see the plot already arising. Here is the frog that appeared earlier(Scotch's brother?) in man-frog stage, getting ready to destroy the world?
I dunno, just guessing.
But when are we gonna see that frog agin?

Heh- I love the crying troll.

I received a 'Power Miners' set over the weekend. I must confess to an odd fondness for the little crystal-eating guys in those sets. The ultra-green color theme take some getting used to, but there are some cool new parts in the sets. Those wheels are going to make great jet engines.

Nick: Yeah, it's Mother Tango. She's just out of shot. She's in there full frame in the next episode. (Up tomorrow sometime.)
