Lego Agents episode 3: We Have Power! (or not.)

Lego Agents: We have power! (or not.)

I was standing in my room, admiring the posters on my wall. I was thinking about yesterday. My commander, Dr. Inferno had been captured by a team known as the Lego Agents. I had been a member of a U.S. government agency, until Inferno, who was in my unit, came claiming that our leader, Chase, had betrayed us. I was shocked. Inferno had a plan to kill Chase and his girlfriend, Claudette. I join with Inferno’s team, and tried to kill them. We got Claudette, but not Chase. Chase shot Inferno, the others, and me. Then, Inferno pulled the ring on a grenade and blew us all up. When I awoke, I had had my arm and part of my face replaced with robotic parts. My arm had been modified with a saw. Inferno came in and told me that the U.S. government was going to destroy the world, and it looked like we must take over the world before America, because America was too dangerous to fight head on. Before my thoughts could continue, my radio crackled.
“Saw-Fist, we have a mission for you.”

It was an exciting day at Agents HQ.
“Got any three’s?” asked Trace.
“Go fish,” said Chase.
Okay, maybe not that exciting.
“Go, go! Goooooo!!!!” screamed Charge.
I stand corrected. Again.
Chase and Trace were playing “Go fish,” Charge and Fuse were watching a wrestling match.
“What’s so exciting about watching two big, hairy guys beat each other to death?” said Fuse.
“What’s not exciting ‘bout it?” replied Charge.
“Don’t get me started. Man, I am bored.”
Beep! Beep! Chase’s cell rang.
“Talk to me, dude,” said Chase. “Yes sir, I understand… Well we tried… Where? Castle, you say? Hmmmm…. All, right. Good day, Clancy.”
“What was that about?” asked Trace.
“That was Clancy,’ began Chase,” Intel reports say that Inferno’s goin’ for a attack on a old castle that’s been revamped into a museum. Inside the museum is a power gem that scientist are studying.
“The power gem!” exclaimed Trace. “I’ve been reading about it on the Internet. It could power Texas for a year!”
“Bingo,” said Chase “Inferno could make a weapon, powerful enough to blast half the world away.”
Chase and Trace walked to the cell in the MCC (Mobile Command Center). Dr. Inferno was sitting in a chair reading a book.
“What do you know about this?” demanded Trace.
“About what?” said Inferno.
“You know,” said Chase. “The power gem.”
“I know nothing.”
“Yeah, we know that,” said Trace.
“Listen,’ said Inferno,’ the Inferno team will go on, even with out me. One day, Inferno will bust me out of this trap. Just you wait, Agent Chase. Your puny team won’t survive Inferno’s blast.”

Saw Fist was standing in front of Spy Clops.
“Break Jaw has demanded a special gem that has amazing power. You will steal it from the Castle museum where it is on display,” said Spy Clops. “There is snow on the ground, so take your snowmobile.”
Saw Fist turned to leave.
“Oh, one more thing,” said Spy Clops.
Saw Fist turned around.
“Don’t fail.”

Chase walked through the museum.
“See, anything?” said Trace over his radio.
“For the 34th time, no! By the way, will this backpack help me? It‘s heavy,” groaned Chase.
“Yeah, remember what’s got in it,’ said Trace,’ it will help.”
“Roger, over and out.”
Chase sighed.
“I probably shouldn’t have come here alone, but Charge and Fuse would get in the way, and Trace had to get some work done at HQ, so maybe it wasn’t a bad idea. Hey, it‘s snowing outside,” thought Chase.
Saw-Fist pulled up to the museum on a snowmobile. The snowmobile had two guns mounted on the front, and a large cannon hooked to the side. People looked and stared. It’s not everyday a guy with a saw attached to his arm, and a snowmobile with guns shows up.
Saw Fist walked to the information booth inside the museum. The woman at the booth stared at him.
“Ur, Can I help you?” asked the woman, nervously.
“Yes where is the power gem?” asked Saw Fist.
“I’m sorry, but it’s been taken off display at this time.”
“Where is it now?”
“In the lab, where it‘s safe. An Interallience agent came and told us that a terrorist organization maybe plotting to steal it.”
“Oh.” Saw Fist walked away, and found the door marked “Laboratory.”
Saw Fist pushed the door open and stepped inside. A scientist was looking through a microscope. Saw Fist grabbed him and lifted him up in the air.
“What do want?!?” asked the scientist.
“The power gem, where is it?” asked Saw Fist.
The scientist pointed to a safe. Saw Fist dropped him and stomped on his head. Saw Fist activated his saw and cut open the safe. He reach inside and pulled out the gem.
Ounga! Ounga! The alarm went off! Saw Fist ran towards the front doors. Chase ran to the lab. Then he saw Saw Fist running away. Chase ran after him.
“Stop thief!” shouted Chase.
“Make me!” shouted Saw Fist.
He ran outside, jumped on his snowmobile, and took off.
“Catch me now!” said Saw Fist as he drove down a mountain.
Chase ran towards a cliff. And jumped off.
“This better work, Trace,” said Chase.
He pushed the Agent’s logo on his jumpsuit. Two fins came out the sides off his backpack, and a rotor came out the top. The Agent’s helipack.
Saw Fist looked behind him.
“Oh, brother,” groaned Saw Fist. “Get through this, bum.” He steered into a forest.
“I’ve got you, buddy,” said Chase. He pushed a button on his watch.
“Auto-pilot mode activated,” said the watch. The helipack weaved through the trees without any problem.
Saw Fist groaned. “There must be some weakness.”
Chase pushed another button on his watch.
“Hook activated,” said the watch.
The power gem was inside a glass case that was sitting on the back of the snowmobile. A hook came out of the helipack. Chase swooped down, and the hook grabbed hold of the case, which broke off the snowmobile.
“Hey!” shouted Saw Fist, as Chase flew away. Saw Fist fired at Chase with the snowmobile’s guns. Chase turned his helipack and pull out the two sub-machine guns, that were hidden under the fins.
Blam! Chase fired at the snowmobile.
Kaboom! The snowmobile exploded as Chase’s shots hit it. Chase flew away.
Saw Fist crawled away from the wreckage. He wasn’t hurt seriously, but bruised and burned.
“Oh, boy. Spy Clops isn’t going to like this,” groaned Saw Fist.

“Why didn’t you capture him?!?” exclaimed Trace.
“I couldn’t,’ said Chase,’ Inferno is sneaky, and I’m sure his goons are too. Saw Fist would have tried to steal the gem. I wonder what they wanted though?”
“Yeah! Go, baby, go!” screamed Charge at the TV.
“What happened?” asked Chase.
“Hairy just beat the tar out of Fat,” cracked Fuse.
“Hey!’ shouted Charge. He grabbed Fuse, threw him on the floor, and pinned him.
“Don’t you know that’s illegal?” groaned Fuse.
“Yo wouldn’t know,” said Charge.
“Cut it out,” said Chase.
“Take that!" shouted Charge as he pinned Fuse again.
“Auggggg!” shouted Chase.

“Whadda mean it will cost 50 billion smackers?” said Spy-Clops.
“I mean it will cost you 50 billion for me to tell the location of the Lego Agents’ headquarters,” said Break Jaw.
“That’s a rip-off!”
“Take it or leave it.”
Spy Clops growled at Break Jaw.
“Instead of paying me the money,’ said Break Jaw as he pulled a list out of his pocket, do these things for me and I’ll tell the location.”
Spy Clops looked at the list. “One power gem, one swamp base, and 2,000 gold bars. Are you mental!?!”
“Take it or…”
“Ughhhh! I’ll take it!”
Spy Clops stormed off.
“The things I do for you, Dr. Inferno,’ muttered Spy Clops to himself,’ and I don’t even know why I‘m doing them.”

Since you asked...

In a poll I posted, you readers said you wanted more Agents fanfics. Don't worry, I'll try to have the epilogue up soon. Plus I've finished writing episode 3, "We Have Power! (Or Not.)" I intend to complete writing all 13 fanfics by July. Then In August, I plan to write series 2. Yep, another 10-13 episodes. That should explain why I haven't been posting!

Combat Heroes Wave 3 images!

Awesome, huh? Let me give ya my thoughts on these.
Snake Eyes vs. Viper: I'm actually disappointed with this set. Snake's goggles are too big, and the Viper just doesn't look right to me, but I'll like him when I get him.
Crimson Guard vs. Shipwreck: I like it. The figures look good, and it has Polly!
Lady Jaye vs Major Bludd: The figures are okay, and Flint likes this set so I'd best get it.
Cobra Commander vs. Gung Ho: I'm disappointed with Gung Ho, Snakebreath looks good, but I'd rather have Scrap Iron or Iron Klaw.

About the agents fanfics...

All right, here's the story on the Agents fanfic.

Originally, I had planned to compose a dio story. I spent several months building backgrounds, building props (Like Fuse's mortar as seen in another post), I read professional dio maker's tips, and well you get the picture! I even built a "cover" for it! Anyhoo, I was too lazy to write a script, and it went "kablooie" from there. The story wouldn't work, so I decided to write a fanfic, and use pictures from the dio to illistrate the story. And I got carried away. The pics wouldn't work with the story. So that the story behind the fanfic story. (I know this is a completely useless post.)

Lego Agents episode 2: Origins pt.2

Lego Agents: Origins pt.2
Groan, groan…
Chomp opened his eyes. He was laying in a smoldering pile of wreckage. Wreckage that used to be the mini-jet. He looked around. All he saw were trees, trees, and more trees.
“Where are Fuse and Charge?” wondered Chomp.
“Hey, you!”
Chomp turned around, and was staring at a man, who had four mechanical eyes, and six robotic legs, and was holding a pistol.
“Eeehaaa!” shouted Chomp, as he kicked at the monster.
The monster fired a laser from his pistol. And Chomp blacked out again.
Lego Agents, an elite team of agents, always ready to fight evil. Go Agents!
Chase drove towards the gates at 90 mph. He reached over and pressed a button on his car.
“Turbo,” bleeped the car’s computer.
Whoosh! Chase barreled towards the gate. Two men, in orange jumpsuit with Inferno logos, where standing at the gate.
“Watch out!” shouted one of the guards.
The other guard pressed the alarm button. But the alarm didn’t go off!
Chase activated the car’s guns, and shot the guards.
Chase blew down the gates, and the alarm still didn’t go off!
“Charge, Fuse, and Chomp must’ve taken out the power,” thought Chase.
But they hadn’t….
Chomp was carried to a clearing in the forest. He woke up and looked around. Several Inferno agents and soldiers stood around the clearing. Two jets and five pick-ups were sitting in the clearing.
“Fuse!” shouted Chomp.
Fuse was being held by two soldiers.
“Chomp!’ shouted Fuse,’ Good to see you alive! I just hope we can get outta here!”
Four soldiers escorted the two Agents to the six-legged monster.
“My name is Spy Clops,’ said the monster, I have you two in my clutches, but I am negotiable.”
“Negotiable how?” asked Fuse.
Charge’s motorbike crashed through the trees.
“Sorry, I’s late! Bambi’s insurance agent wanted to speak with me!” shouted Charge.
A Inferno agent, with one of his arms replaced with a saw, pulled out a pistol and fired at Charge’s front wheel. And it hit.
Charge’s cycle flipped over, and he hit the ground. Two Inferno soldiers grabbed him. Fuse noticed that Charge wasn’t making an attempt to stop them. And that wasn’t like Charge.
“I got him, I got him!” shouted the Inferno agent, who was jumping up and down.
“Very good, Saw Fist,” commended Spy Clops.
“Gold Tooth! Bring the briefcase!” shouted Spy Clops at a agent, who had a patch, gold-colored hair, and teeth made of gold.
“Here, captain,” said Gold Tooth, as he handed Spy Clops a briefcase.
Spy Clops opened the brief case. Inside was gobs of money.
“This and more will be yours,’ said Spy Clops,’ If you join Inferno.”
“Sure,” said Chomp. He walked up and took the briefcase.
“He’s playing’ thought Charge,’ Any second now he’ll pull some karate move.”
Spy Clops handed Chomp a pistol.
“Okay, Chomp, shoot your friends,” said Chomp.
Chomp pointed the gun at Charge. And pulled the trigger.
“Ouch!” shouted Charge as the laser hit his arm.
“Okay, dat’s it!” shouted Charge. He glared at Chomp.
“Yo wasn’t playin’ when yo joined these clowns!”
“No, I wasn’t,” said Chomp, calmly and sincerely.
“Okay then, if dat the way yo want it….”
Charge pointed all five fingers at Chomp. Zapppp! Electric bolts fired from his gloves hitting Chomp, Gold Tooth, Spy Clops, and Saw Fist, which knocked them out. Zappp! More bolts flew from his gloves hitting soldiers, vehicles, and a deer.
“Bambi’s insurance agency really has ah bone to pick with me,” said Charge.
“More like a beef,” said Fuse. “Hey there’s a pick-up you didn’t demolish.”
“It not over,” said a voice.
Fuse and Charge turned around, only to see Chomp holding a bazooka. Fuse grabbed a grenade off his belt, and threw it. Boom! It exploded beside Chomp, knocking him down. Charge ran towards him, and grabbed him by the shirt.
“Yo is in trouble in now,” said Charge.
“Yeah?” smirked Chomp. “Whadda gonna do about it?”
“Call yo, Break Jaw.”
And with that Charge hit him on the face, breaking Break Jaw’s jaw.
“That was harsh,” said Fuse as they climbed into the pick-up and drove away.
Chase press some buttons on the security computer that opened that opened the blast doors. Beep!
“Rejected again!?!” said Chase.
“Hands up,” said a voice behind him.
Chase turned around. A female Inferno soldier was pointing a rifle at him. Then she handed him the rifle, walked to the blast door, and opened it. Then she took off her mask.
“Guh, buh, uh, Trace!?!” stammered Chase.
“Yep,” said Trace.
“Thanks,” said Chase.
“I wasn’t sure I’d be able to deactivate the power in time.”
“Fuse and Chomp were shot down and I couldn’t get a hold of them, so I put on this disguise, walked through the gates, shut off the power, and here I am.”
“What about Fuse and Chomp?”
“I don’t know, Chase, I don’t know.”
“Great, just great.”
“Then, let’s go find the Inferno headhonco.”
Chase and Trace ran inside the building and down a long hall.
Two soldiers stepped out of a room. And wished they hadn’t.
“Nice shots,” said Trace.
“I’ve seen better,” said Chase as he put his pistol back in his holster.
They continued down the hall. They to the end of the hall. A door read, Dr. Inferno, CEO of Inferno and Evil genis.
“Some one needs to tell him how to spell ‘Genius,’” said Chase.
“Do tell,” replied Trace.
Chase kicked the door open. The room behind it was a lobby. A secretary sat at the desk. Chase grabbed her.
“Okay, lady,’ said Chase,’ where’s Inferno?”
The woman pointed to a door.
“Trace, tie her to the chair, and get all the papers you can get out of her desk,” ordered Chase.
“And you?” asked Trace.
“Dr. Inferno and I will have a little chat.”
Chase kicked open the door.
“Okay, doc!’ shouted Chase,’ Party’s over!”
The doctor turned around. And Chase couldn’t believe it.
The doctor had his hair sticking straight into the air, with orange stripes in it. His right arm was robotic, and he was missing an eye. But that wasn’t what Chase was looking at.
“Inferno,” said Chase. “The man who betrayed me.”
“Chase,” said Dr. Inferno.
Chase pulled his pistols.
“Your going to jail, old buddy,” said Chase.
“No, I’m not, old buddy,” said Inferno’
He dropped his jacket to reveal an blaster.
“Fight’s on!” shouted Chase.
He fired at Inferno. Inferno jumped out of the way, and fired. The laser hit Chase.
“Ugh!” shouted Chase as he hit the wall.
Inferno aimed his blasted at Chase.
“It’s the end of the road, Chase,” said Inferno.
Crash! The wall collapsed as an Inferno pick-up drove in.
Inferno turned his attention to the truck.
“Yaaaaaa!” shouted Chase, as he jumped towards Inferno and knocked the blaster out of his hand.
Charge and Fuse jumped out of the truck. Inferno started to run. Charge tackled him.
“Auggg!” screamed Dr. Inferno as 250 lb. of weightlifter landed on top of him.
“Guys!” shouted Chase. “Waited where’s Chomp?”
“He betrayed us,” said Fuse.
Trace ran into the room.
“Is it over yet?”
“Yeah,” said Chase. “It’s over.”
“Dere’s still at least a million soldiers in this place,” said Charge, still holding Inferno under his arm.
“Put Inferno in truck, and drive, Fuse, drive!” said Chase.
Fuse got into the driver’s seat, Charge climbed into the passenger seat, Dr. Inferno was stuffed in the middle, and Chase and Trace jumped in the bed.
Fuse stepped on the gas and drove off at top speed.
“Help!” screamed Dr. Inferno. “I’m being abducted!”
Charge pulled off his shoe, took off his holey sock, and stuffed it in Dr. Inferno’s trap!
“Put a sock in it!”
“Hang on!” shouted Chase.
They blew through the gates.
“Inferno’s men are following us!” shouted Trace, as she noticed the pick-ups chasing them.
Fuse handed Chase a bomb.
“Press the button, and throw it,” instructed Fuse.
Chase pushed the button and threw it. Boom!
“It worked,” said Chase, as he surveyed the fiery wreckage.

Time: 0734 hours

Chase was telling Clancy the story.
“So we were able to bring back the MMC and motorbike, but the jets were destroyed,” said Chase. “Plus Chomp left us, we didn’t destroy the base, and well, sheesh, I guess you’ll want someone else to lead the Lego Agents.
Chase started to walk away.
“Wait,’ said Clancy,’ Your mission was to capture their leader, and that’s what you did.
“You mean…”
“I mean, Welcome to the Lego Agents!”
The End…for now.

I'll have an epilogue coming soon, so stay posted to S6T.

My girlfriend and I were looking at a new piece of machinery she had built. We would be married the next day. I didn’t know what would happen next, but I never would have imagined what DID happen. We were both special agents for the government. I was the top-agent, she built special weapons. I was walking away from her, when I heard the bang and scream. I’ve heard plenty of screams after bangs. More than I want to, actually. I turned around and Claudette was lying on the ground, with blood spattered everywhere. My best “friend” , Codenamed Inferno, was standing there holding a smoking gun. Before I could speak, several more agents ,that where in the unit I was with, surrounded me.
“What is going on?” I asked.
“We are sick of you,’ replied Inferno.
“Why are y…’
“Shut up!” shouted Inferno. “Put out him of my, er, your misery, guys!
I grabbed the pistol, hidden in my vest, and fired away.
A bloody Inferno lifted himself up, and glared at me, with the one eye I hadn’t shot out.
“It not over,’ He mumbled, ‘You’ll still die.”
He pulled out a grenade, pulled the ring, and threw it at me, with his good hand.
I ran without looking back. I made it out of the building, without a scratch. My codename is Chase.

“Please Agent Chase, we need you,” said John Clancy, a rep for the Interalliance worldwide justice agency.
Chase sighed. Clancy had been nagging him, wanting him to lead a team to battle a new criminal organization.
“O.K., first tell me what you know,” said Chase.
This team is dangerous. They captured a small city in Arizona, and took every valuable the people owned. Then they left.”
“Did they leave any thing behind?”
“A letter.”
“That said?”
“You want me to battle these goons, right?”
“Then fill me in, already!”
“Very well, the letter said, ‘We have just begun, signed the Inferno Organization.’ We might know where their base is.”
“You got members for the good team I’m supposed to lead?”
“Yes, are you going to join or am I going to have to find someone else?”
“I’ll check it out.”

“Thank you for agreeing to this, Agent Chase.” said Clancy.
“I didn’t agree to anything,” replied Chase.
“What? But you said…”
“I know what you think I said, but if this is something I don’t like, I’m not joining.”
“No, but’s to it, Clancy.”
Clancy was silent.
They were riding on a elevator down to Agent’s headquarters. To get to the elevator, they had driven to an old parking lot that had a small dilapidated building in the corner. They had entered the building, stepped into a room, and opened a closet door, which was really the elevator.
The doors opened and the two men stepped out.
“Nice HQ,” said Chase.
“Thank you,” said Clancy. “Shall we meet the team the government has selected.
Clancy walked to a large, dark blue truck. Two men were talking.
“Chase,’ began Clancy,’ This is Agent Charge and Agent Fuse. Fuse is an expert in demolition and sabotage. Charge is a mechanic, and heavy weapons specialist.
“And don’t yo forgit it,” boomed Charge in a big, booming voice.
Ignoring the interruption, Clancy continued. “They are both expert pilots and vehicle drivers.
“And don’t’ dat either!” shouted Charge.
“With your big mouth, how could he?” cracked Fuse.
“Yo tried to tell me sumthin’?” asked Charge.
Clancy and Chase walked over to a man that was eating a sandwich, with his back to them.
“This is Agent Chomp,” said Clancy. “He’s a martial artist.”
Chomp turned around in his chair.
“YIKES!” shouted Chase.
Chomp had teeth like a shark!
“I was born this way,” said Chomp calmly.
“Weren’t we all?” replied Chase.
“Hey, man, I’m just in for the moola,” said Chomp,” That’s all that matters to me.”
“What else have you got for me, Clancy?” said Chase.
“One more agent. I’ll show you.”
“That’s what I’m afraid of.”
They walked into a room.
“Where the other guy?” asked Chase.
“Over there.”
Chase turned around and was staring at a pretty, young woman.
“How did on the planet she get here!
“Well, Agent Trace worked for a top security system manufacturer,’ began Clancy. ‘She was their top software designer, and built anti-hacker systems that even the most-wanted hacker could not crack. Her plans for a software project were stolen by a rival company. She used her own disguises to get into the company and get her software back, and bring proof that the other company stole her software. Upon hearing her story, I knew that she would be perfect for building security system and undercover systems.”
“A woman, huh?” scoffed Chase.
“Uh, yes.”
“She won’t be here long.”
Chase walked away, still smirking.
“Do not listen to him, Trace,’ said Clancy,’ he’ll come around.”
“Don’t bet on it!” hollered Chase.
“I think he’s kinda cute,” said Trace.
“Well?” said Clancy.
“Well, what?” said Chase, sarcastically.
Clancy pulled a pistol out of his briefcase, and began loading it.
“Are you in or not?”
“Clear the way, I’m jumpin’ in the pool.”
“Good,” replied Clancy.
Clancy handed Chase the pistol.
Chase clipped it into his holster.
“By the way.” Chase looked at Clancy. “If I had said ’no’ you would have shot me.”
“How did you know?”
“I know how the government works.”
Chase turned around, and walked away without looking back.

“Okay, team this is it,” said Chase.
Clancy and the Agents were standing in the Mobile Command Center.
“Today, we strike. I don’t have a clue what I’m getting into, and nether do you. Okay, Clancy, let us have it.”
Clancy pressed a button on the projector. The lights dimmed and a picture of an armored, heavily-defended building was shown.
Crunch, crunch!
“Hey, no popcorn!” shouted Clancy at Charge.
“Why, yo dimmed the light and turned on a projector. That mean it a movie, right? And when you have a movie, yo gotta have popcorn.”
“This is no movie!”
“Party pooper.”
“Here,’ said Chomp,’ I’ll take care of that.” Chomp took the popcorn, and devoured it, kernels, bag, and all, in one crunch.
“Yuck,” and Trace.
“Now, you may continue,” said Chomp, calmly.
‘Um, where was I?’ asked Clancy. ‘Oh yes, as I was saying, This is Inferno’s base.”
Clancy pointed to the picture on the screen.
“Your mission is to find and capture their leader.”
“Agent Chase, tell the Agents your strategy.
“My strategy,’ began Chase, ‘Is to get in that base and kick Inferno good. Charge! Fuse! Chomp! You three are to cut through the fence, and dismantle all the power in the base. Take the motorcycle, supersonic jet, and mini-jet. Oh, don’t cut off the lights. It’s easier to do a job when you have light. The power MUST be cut by 1345 hours. Trace will sit in the truck and pick us up once we’re done. Does everyone hear me!
“Yes!” shouted Fuse, Trace, and Chomp.
“Uh, what yo say? I could hear cause everyone was screamin’, said Charge.
Chase groaned.

The MMC (Mobile Command Center), Turbo Car, and Motorbike were sitting on the side of a highway. The Supersonic Jet (piloted by Fuse) and the Mini-jet (flown by Chomp) circled above. Chase fastened his seat belt.
“Okay, agents let’s roll!” shout Chase.
“Hey, fat boy,’ said Fuse to Charge,’ How well can ya keep up with jets.”
“Just watch me little man,” retorted Charge. “Yeeha!”
Charge began plowing down trees, bushes, deer, and anything else in his way.
“Sorry, Bambi!” shouted Charge.
Ping, ping! Chomp’s sonar showed something on radar!
“What on earth?” said Chomp.
Then there was a “boom,” and it was the last thing he saw.

The Lego Agents rule!

Okay, this isn't hype about how great the Agents are (Even though they are awesome!) Remember this post? The Lego Agents are in every nearly toy catalog, and that rules. Lego has outdone themselves on the advertising. If the company promotes their products well, the stores usually follow. Anyhoo, keep it up, Lego!
BTW, believe it or not, Hasbro is promoting the Combat Heroes more than the 25th! My brother found one of those display boxes in Wal-Mart today. It has the CH Duke and CC on it. Very cool looking according to the pictures he showed me.
Yo Joe and Duke94 out.

Okay, I admit it...

I'm crazy. I've read that you are too involved with your toys when you start dreaming about them.
My Dad builds custom toy trucks and sells them for a living. Seriously, he goes to shows and brings back money that would make Chomp drool.
Anyhoo, Last night I dreamed that Lego had been sending Dad prototypes of future Lego sets. Dad couldn't tell me or anyone else about the prototypes, because I'd post about them here. And he got busted. Lego had sent him prototypes of the '09 Agents sets, so I got to play with them, and boy, I hope those prototypes are real. I've never had such fun in a dream. All, but one set wasn't built. That set was an Inferno tank, with Gold Tooth and two henchmen, who had the coolest machine guns.
BTW, my Dad does receive prototypes from a large truck company, so I guess that's where the dream came from.

Lego Agents fanfic bios!

These are for the fanfic. You'll want to read these before you read the fanfics.

Chase: Chase is the leader of the Lego Agents. He was the top-agent for another government agency. He had a “friend,” who was a fellow agent codenamed Inferno. He tried to kill Chase and his girlfriend two times. The first time Inferno killed his girlfriend, but was unsuccessful in injuring, much less killing Chase. The last time, Inferno threw a grenade and killed himself, but again Chase escaped without a scratch. Chase was asked by Clancy to start the Lego Agents, which he accepted. Chase has a personal dislike towards Trace, while she likes him.

Trace: Trace is the Lego Agents’ security and computer software expert. She also worked for a top security system manufacturer. She was their top software designer, and built anti-hacker systems that even the most-wanted hacker could not crack. Her plans for a software project were stolen by a rival company. She used her own disguises to get into the company and get her software back, and bring proof that the other company stole her software. She has a special liking to Chase, even though he doesn’t like her.

Charge: Charge is a Mechanic, driver, and pilot. He’s also a great machine gunner, who can pick-up and fire guns that most weightlifters can’t even lift. Most people are afraid of Charge, because of his size, but his friends know that he’s a real softie. Charge and Fuse are best friends, until Fuse makes a wise crack, that is.

Fuse: The wise-cracking demolitions expert is ready to roll in any mission. He’s also a driver and pilot, with skills that any pilot would envy. Charge is his best friend, even though they don’t act like it.

Chomp: When he was a boy, even the worst of the bullies were afraid of Chomp, even though Chomp was not a bully. Chomp was born with shark-like teeth. He grew up in a poor family, so his goal is to become a rich man and he loves money more than a millionaire. His father was a martial artist, so Chomp serves as the Agents’ martial artist.

The fanfic may be up sometime before Saturday, FYI.

Combat Heroes Firefly vs. Sgt. Bazooka review

Okay, with the Combat Heroes I'm gonna save the best for last.
When I saw the images of the SDCC Snake Eyes, I told my brother that Hasbro would have to make Bazooka. I'm not a fan of either character, but I thought Bazooka would translate well into the designs of the CHes (Combat Heroes). I was right, but if Hasbro is going to put out a character that isn't a core character, how 'bout Shockwave (or Shockblast), Dr Mindbender, or even Sgt Stalker? Oh, well kick back, and please put up with my raving and ranting.

Firefly is the main figure in the set. His design is great, but as I said I'm not a Firefly fan.

Firefly's backpack has great detail. It looks like the 25th backpack. (Maybe that was the idea.)
Like most Combat Heroes, Firefly has 4 points of articulation: The head, the waist, and the arms.

The TNT is okay, but nothing major here.

The rifle is a green version of the one that's with the 25th Firefly. (I know, I know.)

Sgt. Bazooka has the normal points of articulation. His figure is decent, but again not a character I'd really want.

He has the typical '85 backpack, complete with rockets.

The bazooka looks good to me, but it's like the weapons the Joe had in the 90's if you know what I mean. (too big.)

Overall rating: 2 out of 5
I think Hasbro could have waited to put out this set or not at all.
Next: Snake Eyes vs. Zartan!

Agents fanfic coming next week!

That right, the Lego Agents fanfiction will be up (Providing everything goes right, therefore I wouldn't expect it to be up until 2011. That was a joke, people.) on Saturday (11/29/08).
Two characters ,that don't have mini-figs, will be in the story, so I assume you'll want to know what they look like.
Chomp is a martial artist, who loves money more life it self. I've already posted his pictures here. (First and third pics.)
John Clancy will be in the story also. (I've borrowed the character from the G.I.Joe Extreme cartoon, watch the first episode here, also the first appearance of Clancy.) His picture is shown below.

Anyhoo, get ready, 'cause when it hits, it will hit!

FOUND: Combat Heroes!

I'll review these ASAP.
Yo Joe and Duke94 out.

Dennis Quaid (and Hawk) in Parade magazine!

Yep, someone sent a question into Parade magazine about how Quaid got ready to play Hawk. He said that for the most part he watched the cartoons. So if the movie has a comic book feel to it, why on the planet, did he watch the cartoons? (Not that I'm complaining, the cartoons rule, but the comic books aren't that great.) Anyhoo, it showed a 25th/Modern Era Gen. Hawk. Too bad it was 25th. Then again there isn't a fig of Hawk that isn't 3 3/4" to my knowledge. Otherwise, Parade would have had used a 8" figure of him. (Hey, as I recall, on the news article about the movie on FOX's web site, they showed pics of 8" figures.)

So the G.I.Joes weren't in the Toys R' Us catalog...

Warning! This will get pretty offensive to 25th "collectors."
Here's why. There is nothing to put in the catalog!
Okay, before you go nuts trying to figure out what in the world I'm rantin' and ravin' about, there was no Joe stuff in this year's Toys R' Us big toy book catalog. On large Joe talk boards, there are discussions about this. Most say that next year there will be a load of stuff, thanks to the movie. When the movie comes out, Hasbro will start putting out some toys! Now all we get is 3 3/4 inch ''collectibles" that no kid wants, and that have the worst sculpts ever. I mean ever! Plus there are no big sets, or vehicles. Even a vehicle like the Rolling Thunder might make it into the catalog, if Hasbro would make it.
What I'm saying is the G.I.Joe line is going down. Going down because Hasbro has turned it into a line of collectibles for collectors. Collectors should buy what the kids buy. Once that is established, the line will grow and return to it's glory. The glory that it had in the 80's.

G.I.Joe vs. Lego Agents

Some of you of you are probably wondering about why I've posting so much Lego Agents. Believe me, it frustrates me too, when someone goes to another line. I'm not dropping out of G.I.Joe. The church I go to has a fall festival every year, and almost everyone comes in a costume. (It is kinda an alternative to halloween. We don't celebrate it, and none of the costumes at the festival are ghosts, wizards, and all that. Here's my costume. (Duke)

Anyway, I'm not dropping out of G.I.Joe, there is a place for that line inside of me, but Hasbro just didn't put out anything that I felt okay about reviewing. The 25th/Modern Era replaced the 8" and most don't look good/aren't accurate. (See Breaker, Red Star, Serpentor, etc.) Up until the Combat Heroes. Now the combat heroes are out, and I'm looking for them. Once I get them I will review them. In other words, Joe fans hang in there, I'll have some Joe stuff sooner or later. But as for now...

Lego Agents Mission 8 Review: Volcano Base

Okay, as usual it has taken me awhile to get this thing up. I have a good excuse, however, I am working on a Lego Agents diorama story, and it's a pain in the neck to work on. And I mean pain. Hopefully I'll get it completed and maybe not.
Lego has out-done themselves on the Agents line, and this set is just as cool as the others. This set might be better off getting released next year as the big set for every Lego line, but I guess if Lego continues Lego Agents into next year than they'll have something just as cool for us. ( I hope.)
The mini-figs.
For the agents, we get Pilot Chase, Trace, and Prisoner Fuse.
I pretty much covered everything about them in this review. They all have 2-sided heads. Pilot Chase and Trace have pistols, and Fuse has, um, handcuffs.
The bad guys (and gal) are Dr. Inferno, Claw-dette, and Fire Arm.
Doc Inferno was covered here.
Claw-dette: Decent mini-fig. I think she's meant to be the Baroness rip-off. (So where's Destro's alter-ego?)
Fire Arm: I don't like this mini-fig that much. He looks too much like Saw-Fist. His tool is supposed to be a flame thrower. (I guess.)
The helicopter looked pretty bad when I first saw it, but now that I have it I like it a lot.

The bottom is where the net is stored. I saw a review of this set on another site (don't remember the name), I figured the net would fall right out. Not so. The net fits in nice and snug.

Now for the volcano, itself. This is one cool base! The set is this, and becomes...
To your right of the volcano, all we get here is a big targeting screen. (Guess ol' Dr. Inferno needs eyeglasses.)

The front doors are nice, and fold together nicely. They come off from time to time. But all things said, they're pretty cool.

The cannon is big, but not too big. Not a whole lot to say.

Now to the left side. There is a small computer, the monorail, and radar dish.

One minor note about the radar dish, I had to add a leftover part to keep the antenna in the dish.
The monorail is nice, and being a two seater is always a bonus.
Now for the fire pit. Fuse is hanging on for dear plastic, and I think the fire pit is pretty cool.
The interior don't have much, but it seems to have enough features for Inferno to operate.

This side has one stupid tank. And that it. Maybe it will work for storage.
Inferno's throne is a nice combo of parts, but the screens aren't that detailed. Bummer.
Inferno's cannon is held up well, and doesn't tend to slide down like I expected.
The computer center is great! The screen shows the power gem from Mission 1. The chair is elevated, but that doesn't mean much to me.
Two instruction manuals. Sure beats the 4 manuals for Mission 6.

Box pics.

Please leave a comment. I'd like to know your opinions about the reviews. Also that dio should be up by December, if I post it up.
