    Very Surreal Alpha Team Prototype

    A great backstory to Alpha Team, but there's one thing I discovered recently that I couldn't figure out: in the manual for LEGO Alpha Team on GameBoy Color, Ogel is described as being the "arch-nemesis of Dirk Brick and the LEGO Alpha Team". Who is Dirk Brick? He is never mentioned anywhere else in the manual, nor in the video game, and to my best recollection, not mentioned in the sets or the PC version of the game (which was released prior to the GBC version by 2 months). I've searched for hours online finding any crumb of Dirk Brick mentioned anywhere else, and nothing turned up. I've come up with a few possibilities for who Dirk Brick is: 1) Dirk Brick is the former name of Dash Justice, the Alpha Team leader. Considering Dirk Brick is referred to separately from the Alpha Team, he could be the leader Dash, who has also been referenced separate from the Alpha Team. Maybe a working name before the more on-the-nose name he finally had (Dash - running - Motions Expert). 2) Dirk Brick is the name of an agent prior to Alpha Team (LEGO Logic / TILT). The Instruction manual uses an older render of Dash and Radia, which can also lend itself to the first theory, but can also show this from an earlier stage of the game / story bible. Of the characters in LEGO Logic, 3 of the 5 main characters were named ("a chef, a gymnast (named Flip), a magician, a mad scientist (Dr. Pogo), and a marching band musician (Major Minor)" ), as well as an unnamed cowboy at one point in development, so the name could have belonged to one of them. However, the name doesn't lend itself to anyone's style or talent as the other names do. 3) Dirk Brick is retroactively the name of Spy from CMF Series 16. In Series 16 of Collectible Minifigures (2016), there is a Spy minifigure whose bio suggests, "almost nothing is known about his identity or past" and only nicknamed as "Agent A". He DOES have a recton connecting him to several LEGO themes including Alpha Team, Agents and Galaxy Squad - "His first recorded mission on file was for the organization known as Alpha Team, when he triggered a mind control orb self-destruct program that toppled the evil Ogel’s latest scheme for world domination and freed his brainwashed Skeleton Drone minions. (Full Bio here)". His timeline also refers to the "Zed Incident", which ties back to Alpha Team as well since Zed is the only minifigure to date, non-licensed, to have that name. Is Spy supposed to retcon the name Dirk Brick? Not likely, but in headcanon that can fit well.

    Lucky LEGO finds

    In Stop and Shop I found City 4x4 and Diving Boat slightly opened and reduced to $10! Only one part was missing, the orange boat (not in a sealed bag), so I placed an order for a missing piece and got it from LEGO! At Toys R Us I was allowed access to a Bricktober Theater promo set! It sat on the shelf as a regular store item, and the manager ovverode the scanning error (intended to prevent purchases of the set prior to release date, October 5, 2014). I didn't ask for it to be ovverode, the manager did it themselves. Review for it here! At Toys R Us I found a Batman DS accessory pack for $0.04! Price when scanned, originally more than $7.99, great find! Review of it here, before anyone else publicly sees:

    Bionicle 2015 Discussion

    If these appear in stores this year, it will be around the holiday season (roughly December 2014). At this point it would make sense in LEGO's typical marketing waves for them to appear at the next available time - holiday season wave. Plus, new LEGO at this time might help boost the interest to non-Bionicle fans. It's very common for new themes (or continuation of old themes) to appear in the December wave, compared to a March or August wave, in that more themes are typically introduced in December compared to other season waves.

    LEGO Star Wars 2015 Pictures and Rumors

    For the brief moment the Tuskens on screen, they scared me when I was younger. But looking at them now... http://www.sideshowt...press04-001.jpg They're not so bad. I actually liked the first LEGO version of these guys, well done for detail on the torso and head, and I'm lucky to own them. https://www.thedaily.../b000rtvfto.png I know Star Wars strives for accuracy, but I actually liked these without molded heads at first. I didn't see the new versions so I hope they live up to and improve on the original. (If anyone already talked about these figures in visual comparison I apologize, I didn't read every post of this forum.)
  6. Goodbye Eurobricks. I won't miss you.

    Hello! My name is Joey

    Hello everyone, This is Maniac4Bricks, my new username for most sites (couldn't figure out how to change it here). I'm just posting a note to say that I am deactivating myself from this community. It's a great resource for finding and discussing LEGO information, but to be honest, it's too overwhelming for me. I've had conflicts with people who use this site, and I think it's best that I stay away from here. I'm sorry everyone. Goodbye. Maybe someday I will return, but no promises it will be soon, unless conflicts are resolved. Play well, Maniac4Bricks

    LEGO Ultra Agents 2014

    Thank you for the information! Sounds like a quick and easy game, which seems a little disappointing to me compared to it's Agents predecessor on the LEGO website. I'll look into it before reviewing the sets!
  11. This is true, but I know for a fact that he is primarily a Marvel fan. Not saying that he can't buy DC stuff also, but I'd be surprised if he was interested in a DC game, especially this late in the trilogy (counting Batman: The Videogame as #1 of course). Thanks for showing my image! I find them on the LEGOBatmanGame account on Instagram and repost them to Flickr, Twitter and Instagram Play well, Maniac4Bricks :)
