Candy is ironically devouring humans after an epic failure of an experiment and a new organization called SEA (Sweets Eradication Agency) has to stop it befre humanity goes extinct.

Ummmmm.... Creative, definitely, and quite clever, but I have a more serious idea:
The great heroes from various universes (and some people who got in the way) have been transported by a mysterious force to an unknown place (which will end up being a starship, if I get my way). Here they are told they must fight to the death. But there's a problem. Most of these people just want to go home. But they can't . They have only three options: Fight, die, or band together to find a way home (You can guess which one will make the best story (hint - #3)). Thus begins a quest to find the people that brought them all to this place, and to get everyone home safely

Yes. Sorry, thought that was implied. The reason I added in "And some random people who got in the way" is because some peoples sig-figs are not heroes, simply representations of themselves.

I think, in theory, your siggie is the only 'Hero'. It's actually a very good idea!

Whatever the idea, we should have it so that the antagonist isn't easy to figure out. For example, you believe that one person's evil, but he turns out to be good, so you believe that the leader of the good guy is evil, but he's good too, and the antagonist is a completely different guy. Maybe?

I've got a way to do that:
Set in the medieval period (middle earth idea, but not that universe; just a world like that), a portal opens up and the people enter (multiverse story). This reveals that these people have arrived from a parallel universe where the government has failed and giant mutants that evolved from candy (candy story) and it has caused the apocalypse (post-apocalyptic story). The mutants have developed the ability to travel between dimensions, so the people from either universe have to team up and travel through other universes (other lego themes, such as ninjago & bionicle). That's all I've got...

Also, the post-apocalyptic world could be steampunk! if you like the way I incorporated all the ideas, I've got plenty more where that came from...

Humans have become nearly extinct...
After creating technology that destroyed most them, they created a group of small androids! They eventually found a crystal, a crystal of imagination! After the first android touched the crystal, they all became more...they became real! Now the final push against machines has begun! Each person has taken on their own partners (Siggys)

Just a rough draft of a story!

Then, maybe the reason they mutated was due to an andriod that touched wanted to rebel, so he turned their own confectionary against them. However he dissapears in shame because of what he did...

I've thought about the travelling across multiple LEGO themes idea quite a bit (even before I asked for opinions) but that would give me the feeling that they know they're LEGO...I don't really want that...I want them to be 'real' so to speak.

At any rate this is a really good! I'm thinking maybe post-apoc where mutant candy is the reason for the apocalypse. I don't know...

Rule #1 of the multiverse trope: CHARACTERS NEVER BREAK THE 4TH WALL!

Yeah, they probably still wouldn't know. Either way, I like the multiverse idea...

What's a fourth wall?

What's a fourth wall?

The fourth wall is a strange phenomanon that occurrs in movies, video games, books and basically any narrative structure. Rather than explaining what it is, it's better to explain what 'breaking the fourth wall' is. Breaking the fourth wall is saying or doing something that simply isn't meant to be done in a book. Examples include making references to how bad the book they're in is, skipping chapters, trying to call up the writer and ask for a different ending, and so on...

Building off my parallel worlds idea, the mutants can turn people into special zombies that also get mutated (like giving them four arms, exploding pod shooters or bio-guns).

In the not too distant future, cows have evolved into Minotaurs and they herd people and eat them as "hum-burgers". A group of people band together and must travel the world and, with the help of a race of candy mutants, make everyone a vegetarian..... because the evil Veggie-Mutants are going to take over!

Nice. I wish we had lego stores here. I mean sure, it's cheap at Kmart, but it would be so much cooler if we had the lego store. I mean we didn't even get the exclusive lego opera house! And it's OUR landmark. Oh, and that Kmart I mentioned recently got refurbished, and it only has about a third as much lego compared to what it originally had. ;(

And we have to pay double online. Seriously, go to Lego.com, go to the store, put the region to US, and you'll see that the prices are half and the selection is double! (well, not double, but increased). I saw the Opera House set once, but it was $70 even when discounted

Um, price isn't the issue. The opera house is almost as big as the death star, so either way it's still cheapish. But the online store, you're totally right. You know why? The australian government puts up all the prices and takes a lot of the money for themselves...

As well as that, because Oz is such a small market, we get hit with price hikes

The group hasn't even been around a week yet....Don't worry though. I've been sick the last couple of days with a stomach virus (I still am sick actually) so I really haven't had time to finish up my other comic like I planned.

I should be feeling good enough to put the next episode for that up on Monday, then I will close sign-ups and order all the special pieces I need to make everyone's characters.

Some characters don't need anything new so we'll just have to wait and see how it goes :)

Hey no worries man :) I know how it feels when it takes forever for a comic to start. I'm still writing up the last episodes for my old comic.

I should be able to upload one a day this week and finish before next weekend and I can start on this :) *cue awesome-sounding voice* Fear not, Ultimate Reaper! The story will begin shortly! *end awesome-sounding voice*
