episode #2; the touchstone, Commander Iron fist and Snake start gathering the team.
About this creation
I just can t wait to get rid of this chicken shift outfit!
if it was nt for our cover, I would have caved-in that stupid trucker s face
at the diner back there!
COMMANDER IRON FIST;
I know, I know, after he threw my burger on the floor,
I would have shoved it down his throat myself!
but, it s only natural that they assume we re from Globolopolis on vacation.
I can t believe I did nt think to get rid of the Metal Legion box of my uniform
before we got to the truck stop,
the trooper was suspicious when he looked at it in the car...
Well, get over it, both uniforms are stashed under the floor s carpet,
no one will find them now.
According from the doodle map, we re almost at Beachfront city,
so hang on!
Here we are!
Let s refresh the power cell now, it might be a good time to get
You re on!
So you fellas are on vacation?
tourists from Globo I guess?
No one can fool you...
Yeah, I ve got pretty good instinct for these things...
you intend on staying long?
Maybe, it depends on the kind of entertainment we can get,
is there much to do here?
It s a pretty quiet town here, but, the resto is great, you re sure to like it!
there s also plenty of water sports you can enjoy,
and the girls are very hot!
it s a sure bet your chum and you will have baking hot dates for tonight!
Hey! can we get moving?
Sounds like your friend is under stress here...
Yeah, hum. he s on burn-out!
he can t let go of the job yet, he always feel like he s on an appointment
and a schedule, these vacations will do him good...
According to the files, we should get our man here...
and try to relax ok?
I m on burn-out remember?
Ok, then try to get better as we go along!
That should be him there!
Why would you say that? xd.
Would you give surf lessons to one who wants to learn?
Sure! I think we could come to an arrangement,
ladies, would you leave us? I have to talk business!
See you later handsome!
Ok funny guy! that was nt the password,
what kind of game are you playing?
I m in the spying business, and get tired of lame passwords, besides,
I had to get rid of the girls, and, 'depending on what you want to learn'
would have kept them here way too long.
Fair enough, where is the vehicle, and how soon can we go?
It s in plain sight, but, hidden very close.
and we can go as soon as we free the informer.
The one who knows the General Vartok s whereabouts,
he s rotting in the police station s cell, he is the only one who knows
where he hangs, he was about to tell me when the sheriff caught him...
What is he, a criminal?
Not at all, but he found something disturbing about Beachfront city,
it fronts more than the beach, most women here are prisoners of a gang,
they are addicted to a drug called the 'touchstone'!
...give me some money so I can go on the act....
Take a look around, do you think it s normal
that these guys score that much around here?
I mean, really!
some of them would nt stand a chance even if they paid!
I don t get what s in it for the sheriff?
what does he have to gain from men scoring?
Some of them disappear, some get addicted, others make great publicity to
bring more here, and it goes deeper...
Do you have a plan?
Yeah, and it just started!
...take care of my surfboard will you?...
I told you to leave the city!
maybe you miss your troublemaking friend?
then I ll be happy to oblige!
Yeah, he s been feeling lonely without you, he, he.
You re the ones who should be in prison!
you will answer for all these lives you wasted!
What about our surf lesson?
Find yourself another guide mr!
Yeah, one who will not lead you into trouble!
why don t you get lunch at the resto?
There is a lot of insistence on going to that resto...
Yeah, I felt that too, something fishy about it,
and it s not fish and chips!
I thought it could be avoided to mess things around here but, events lead us otherwise.
It looks to me that they re not the kind to mix the GF in their affairs,
as long as we re tourists, we can take them down without breaking any rules,
I say we grab Beach bum, the informer, get the vehicle,
and race our way out of here!
Without the sheriff to run the show,the whole racket could collapse,
and we could free those people!
Beach bum did nt have time to elaborate on this, there might be other parties involved,
we better be careful!
....................AT THE SHERIFF S OFFICE.................................
what do you want?
A refund on our surf lesson!
And we ll kindly take it out of you instead of a lunch!
Before I m through with you, you ll tell me everything you know!
even your mama s underwear s color!
.....CLANG!!!!....[head knocked against steel bars]
We don t care for bed-time stories, we re in a hurry!
Sorry, but, we re on a short vacation plan!
You re on the nick of time!
hurry before the rest of the gang arrives!
Gang? what gang?
The black mantas and white shadows!
they where about to take us to their boss!
let s head to the beach!
I ll pick up our vehicle and join you there!
Let me guess, the shipwreck?
Right on! I had to work on it a few nights to stash it there unnoticed,
By squeezing the van s bumper on the door, nobody can peek inside,
unless they know how the mechanism works.
PEDAL TO THE METAL YOU LOSERS!
Lets get the heck out of here, follow me!
........................A FEW MINUTES LATER.............................
Where are the troublemakers?
They headed west!
you might catch them if you ride fast!!!
CREATOR S LOG;
ok, more intricacy and action on episode #3!!!
my next post should be Cybercity-1 tales #3, the station!
I have nt received the trees yet, maybe next week,
but those at the beginning of the story are a good example of what I m on to.
I should get them in time for the station.
Awesome, awesome, awesome! I love this sooooo much, loving the city and the story is great true! Really nice piece of work from you cyber, looking good! Keep building, your stories and build thrill me!
Quoting Deus "Big D." Otiosus
thanks Deus! I feel it turned out fairly well, I m trying to limit the episodes around 30 frames, in my old series, I sometimes past 60, which I consider a bit too long now.
Quoting Topsy Creatori (StoveTopCreator!)
thanks Topsy! you have a sharp eye, nothing gets past you! xd, I added a few funny touches in the scenes to add 'replay value', one has to look carefully to notice them all, like you!
Really enjoyed the water effect, as well as the details in the buildings and off in the background. Happy to see you building again Frank.
I like it
March 7, 2014
Tropical dystopia. Human trafficking facilitated by systemic drug addiction. An iron triangle of crooked cops, a resto-trap, and violent street gangs. A van full of justice hidden in a ship wreck. And now a burnout reptile, an angry soldier, and a surfer who knows the whole deal are all on the move... Somebody is going down hard and they won’t be getting back up... Cyberfrank, this series is better than most shows on TV! I eagerly await the impending explosion of justice and freedom. Surfs up!
Lots and lots of great details. I like the little bits a insanity you threw in like, the ostriches, Chewie, and Jar Jar. And did I see Doog in the crowd too? Also the vending machines look great with their contents for sale! I like the other little touches like the neatly trimmed hedges and those trees are super! Great stuff! :)
Great episode! I have to agree with the others, awesomely well composed story and very humorous dialogue. The scenes are brilliantly done too with some very nice builds. I noticed the gas station, the life guard tower and that van. I like the roof on that one, i think i might have to try something similar out on a future build of my own! Oh, i also noticed our friends in some of the first scenes :-) And great news about the store, i must envy that! :-D
BREAKING NEWS! it s official, a LEGO STORE opens at le Carrefour laval in april, 30 mins from my home, the timing is excellent for me, as, I m pretty much through buying whole kits, to balance my collection and define my style it s exactly what I needed.
Quoting Alex Sonny
thanks Alex! the scenes where a lot of work, but, in time, I get more tricks to do it faster, I m trying to do stories I would have liked to see, I ll do better when I fix a set-up for bigger scenes, hold on!
