Episode 826

Read the comic here.

Back to the Pirates.
I was going to do a narration box with "Meanwhile..." but it seemed kind of obvious in context.

The important bit of context that might be lost on newer (or more forgetful) readers is that Donut has parked the Brick House on the same lot where the original stood for the first 300 episodes or so. This bit of nostalgia has apparently come back to bite him in the butt.

Again, a bit of a spoiler on the Pirate Advent since I needed to show today's items in-strip, and wanted to have the comic up before the Pirate Advent Review published at noon. What can I say? They're Pirates. Not following the rules is a key tenet in their religion.

Speaking of Advent items, I had to move the flag on the raft to make room for all the passengers. How that dinky little thing is staying afloat under the weight I have no idea.

Love the partially submerged croc!

That's not all, Chris found a way to sneak the crab advent item in, too! A Reasonably Clever way!

I too like how you partially submerged the croc.

Chris, you left a big green-topped Lego container in the last panel. Yech.

@cancerkitty and legostargalactica:
Thanks! At first I had him just on top of the water, but it looked really odd. Luckily his head just comes apart - it would have taken a lot more work to create the illusion otherwise.

@anon:
Whoops. Things have been re-cropped now.

This is the best episode you've made in a while.

The submerged croc was a great idea.

Top notch building and minisets usage.

Another post to say how much I enjoyed the swimming croc.

Just wondering on a couple of things.
Are the rooms from the original Brick House still in the TARDIS Brick House?*
And how are the pirates getting this stuff? The past few years there has always been a portal of sorts.
