About this creation
When last we saw our two dashing stars, the crafty Young was preparing to strike while charismatic mutineer Ocean was distracted... very distracted. It doesn't look good for the rebels...
"Oooooooooooh... don't stop... I LOVE wallaby style!"
"Yeah, all the girls do..." (The following image has been censored for your protection)
Most of the spacemen are quickly rounded up without a struggle, as they hadn't had a chance to steal any weapons yet. In the face of the Corporate Military's might, they have no choice but to immediately surrender. The coup appears over before it's even begun.
"All right, you spacemen scum! Where's Ocean? Give us the traitor!"
"He's not here, he's in the Blue Room!"
"And wipe those smiles off your faces!"
"Don't move, Ocean! We've got you covered!"
"No, don't stop, Mister Ocean! Please!"
"Ah, f***!" (The following image has been censored for your protection)
"You're coming with us, traitor! Right now!"
"Can't I get some pants on, at least?"
"All right, that's probably a good idea." (The following image has been censored for your protection)
"Man, I wouldn't want to be you. I mean, Young's pretty mellow most of the time, but... I saw him get really angry, just once before. It -- it wasn't pleasant. Today makes twice. If you weren't such a scumbag traitor, I'd feel sorry for you."
"Pfft! That noodle-armed bookworm doesn't scare me."
"So, what have you got to say for yourself, you putrid pile of wombat puke?!"
"SILENCE! I can't believe you thought you could get away with this!"
"I still will get away with it."
"HA! You've been into the dreamfruit, I see. Face it Ocean, it's over. I'm gonna disassemble you."
"Over? Oh, you overconfident, arrogant American. It hasn't even begun! Do you really think I'd allow myself to be defeated this easily?"
"That's it! Dismantle him now! NOW!"
But before the Corporate Military can pull him apart, Ocean shouts the magic words to summon the five wizards.
"I don't care how many guns you have on your side, how many weapons you can build. I've got magic on my side! I am invincible! MUAHAHAAHAAHAAA! I'll take all of your collection that I please, you jackass, and disassemble you! Or better yet -- you know what to do, boys."
"Mister Young, I think it might be time for plan Z."
"I think you're right, Zaius."
With a blinding flash, Zaius disappears.
"What the -- What was that?"
"You may have magic, but you forgot one thing that trumps that -- I have a time-traveling monkey on my side! Haha! CheckMATE, Ocean!"
"Five minutes until Mister Ocean beams in, sir."
"You said that fifteen minutes ago, Scotty. And you also said it ten minutes before that."
"Can you please stop calling me Scotty, sir? My name's Tom."
"I'll think about it."
"Mister Young, I need to talk to you!"
"Well, make it quick, because SigOcean Figgy should be here in five minutes -- or fifteen, or fifty, who knows..."
"That's what I need to talk to you about, sir. I just came from a short while in the future, and..."
Zaius relates the sordid tale of treachery and backstabbing. No sooner has he finished relating all the particulars, than Ocean materializes.
"So this is what it feels like when doves cry!"
"What? Oh yeah... uh..."
"Wrong? Um, yeah... yeah. Sorry, the place is being fumigated. Rats, you know -- huge rats. Bigger than your head... lots of them. So you can't stay here, goodbye, better get going!"
"Yeah yeah, you'll just have to go straight to Lee's. Fumigation... you know, poison gas. Don't want you overthrowing -- I mean, throwing up!"
"But hold on, I really gotta pee --"
"No time for that now, maybe you can come by some other time..." *Shoves him in transporter* "Beam him out NOW, Scotty!!!"
"Phew! That was close, Zaius. I really owe you one."
"Just doing my job, sir. Think nothing of it."
"You're too modest. No sig-fig ever had a better monkey consigliere. I mean that."
"Thank you, Mister Young. That means a lot to me."
"Huh, you know... if we're not gonna have Ocean here like we thought, that gives us several days free. I'll be with the girls if anyone needs me."
"Enjoy yourself, Mister Young."
"Yes, that's right, wallow away in debauchery... believe all your troubles are behind you! Of course I saved you from that fool Ocean, I can't have old dingo breath ruining all my carefully laid plans -- plans I've been nurturing for years! Little do you know, Mister Dung, that your trusted advisor has been plotting behind your back all along! The Skunk Works will be mine! MINE! MUAHAHAHAAHAAAA!!"
I had to stop and take a break after the scene where the Other Shannon's 2nd first beaming in, just to see if I could guess which direction you took it. I was, not surprisingly, surprised yet again.
If the monkey went back in time to stop it from happening, then it wouldn't have happened to cause the monkey to go back in time, which would have caused it to happen again...
Quoting Shannon Young
Lee Jones is not making a continuation or sequel to this story. At least, I don't expect him to.
Okay, thanks for clarifying. I wasn't thinking he was going to either, at first. I guess it would be cool if he did, though. Either way, I anticipate his post (he is supposed to post something with it, right?)
Just to clear up an apparent misconception on the part of a few reviewers below - Lee Jones is not making a continuation or sequel to this story. At least, I don't expect him to. He is simply the next recipient of the official traveling SigOcean Figgy that has gone from Phipson to Kelso to Kescenovitz to Goldman to me, and now, finally, to him.

"Ooooooh... don't stop... I LOVE wallaby style!"
I just can't get over how funny that line is. I'm still laughing. Heck...I'll probably be laughing as I drive home tonight. Anyway, these are great builds. The scenes are well laid out and have plenty of detail to keep a person coming back for more. Top it off with the fact that it's an amazing story and...well...I can't wait for the movie. a time-traveling monkey and wizards? Does it get any better?

Well...while I'm waiting for that last comment to get moderated. Nice work here. It had everything I love. Scandal, dirtiness, ladies, minimal clothing, a monkey. Spot on.
Brilliant building and story telling! More than sufficient to make a MOCery of everyone elses abuse towards Sig Ocean Figgy. Of course, now that you've incorporated the ol' time-traveling bit there'll be no end to this fiasco of sex, betrayal, and bad puns. So I guess just one question remains...who gets the film rights?
Ok, I haven't bothered looking past "wallaby style" but I'm sure the rest of it is good too... (Great story, great presentation, great ending! Can't wait to see what Dr. Jones has in store for our favorite Sigfig!) ~ Chris.

Yours is the only story that my husband, Bigfoot, HAS to read. As soon as he saw me looking at the main pic, he ran right over and plopped down next to me. Once the house stopped shaking, we both enjoyed another great episode from the great ShannY. I'm fairly certain it's just because he's into the LEGO nudity. But whatever gets him into my hobby. Excellent as usual. ~Heather
You know, right before I saw the pic, I thought "that would be so hilarious if ShannY went Frog-Punk with this". And you did!! Very well done, but I was a bit disappointed about the ending (I wanted to see some pirate, ninja fights, here). Oh, well. I can look forward to Lees addition to the story...
While I’m thoroughly disappointed at your failure to pursue the peacher plot thread, and at the blatant racism you openly display toward mini-figs of the peach skinned persuasion, I suppose wizards, frogs, and a time traveling simian at least approaches a passable substitute. So, how is the view from that high moral plateau anyway? Or is it too hard to see past your own monumental hypocrisy. I did like the frog, though.
