Happy Easter!

By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Press Room; April 16, 2017)      Happy Easter, Mustache Maniacs Film Co. fans! To celebrate, we have two treats for you today!      First, Ask Mark Matthew has been on hiatus after an acute shortage of questions. However, today we have a mini edition of the on-going series. Here it is!
wolfwarrior gaming writes: Will the next Johnny Thunder involve dino island? Mark: No. While we are looking at dino island for further down the line, the fourth Johnny Thunder film will actually be based on LEGO's 2007 Aqua Raiders line. It will be titled Johnny Thunder and the Wonders Beneath the Waves.
     And while that's it for today's Ask Mark Matthew, we have more for you today! It's a teaser for Crazy Compendium in the form of one of the re-released stories! It's an Easter story, so it's certainly in the spirit of today!

Studio Update: Ha! April Fools!

Image
By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; April 1, 2017)      April Fools! Did you seriously think that our films are coming to LEGO Dimensions? On the contrary, there's talk that the game may not even have a year 3 (though we're not in on the loop about that one, so we can't say anything for certain). As for the expansion packs featured, those were all faked just for the joke. If you want a behind the scenes look at the prank, just watch the latest episode of Backstage Showcase. We've embedded it below for your convenience.
     Moving on to serious business, we are implementing some new branding changes around our network, which we started implementing earlier this week. Mainly, network-wide graphics are being synchronized to a new sense of uniformity. In addition to this, unnecessary blocks of text will be eliminated on the Mustache Maniacs Film Co. website, among other things. Here's what else is changing: The styles for the official website, t…

Mustache Maniacs Film Co.'s Movies are Coming to LEGO Dimensions!

Image
By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; April 1, 2017)      It's been a long time coming, but we're now ready to reveal our latest and largest partnership to date! Read on, because it's going to be great!
     Mustache Maniacs Film Co. has fostered numerous partnerships over the past several years, including the authors of the DINO ATTACK RPG, CarTOON Shack, and many others. Today, we are pleased to announce our biggest partnership yet: Warner Bros. Games, in order to bring our fan-favorite characters to the popular toys-to-life game LEGO Dimensions, among many others from outside our library of films. We have now been given express permission to showcase the next wave of expansion packs and what it has to offer. These all-new year 3 expansion packs will work with the existing game and all year 1 and year 2 packs, creating an even wider array of wild combinations.
     Releasing this August are ten new packs that expand the game in ways not thought poss…

There's Something Strange about these Character Photos!

Image
By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; March 31, 2017)      So I was on company retreat last night when it was announced that all studio personnel would be receiving images of all the characters that either are being introduced or redesigned in the near future, solely for the purpose of reference. So, this morning, the images were indeed there as promised. Yet, as I looked at the reference images, I noticed something odd.





     In regards to the smaller character images, why do those figures have bases? Why would the studio distribute images of these characters on these special bases, especially since Ogel doesn't look any different from his appearance in Alpha Team: Mission Deep Jungle? The same goes for Zachary Virchaus, who looks no different from his DINO Attack RPG appearance. I've heard that there's going to be a big announcement tomorrow, so these may be tied to that, whatever that may be. One way or another, that doesn't explain why part of …

Network Update in Progress!

Image
By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; March 30, 2017)      While strange images and documents have surfaced over the last two days, we do have a new change that we want to share from around our network! If you've been to the Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Wiki since Monday, you may have seen the brand-new look. It's just the first step in redesigning our network to create a unified look!      Today, this press room was the next to be changed, and while its color palette is still a work-in-progress, you can get a sense of what the new network is going to look like! The color scheme is going to be comprised mostly of blues and teals, but yellow is also going to be used as a secondary color, with black acing as a neutral base. For those of you who want a visual representation, here's the new official color palette.      If this looks somewhat familiar, that's because this color palette is intended to be reminiscent of the old LEGO Studios sets from 2000-2…

What on Earth!?!

Image
By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; March 30, 2017)      So I was busy working in my office yesterday evening when I got this e-mail from Samuel Gordon that claimed to have an odd photo that he found in the studio's servers. Since I needed to take my mind away from what I was doing at the moment so that I could accurately assess my work anyway, I decided to open it up. To say that it is odd is an understatement.      So, who cloned Solek? No, seriously. Why do we even have a picture of nine Soleks walking across the desert on the Studio's mainframe? Either someone is really asking Mark Matthew to fire them, or this is left over from a dead project that the studio bought years ago.      Wanting answers, I quickly sent Samuel an e-mail about the image, and he claims that the image is from a partnership that finalized less than a year ago, and that the image is from last December. I don't know what to think anymore.      So, any wild guesses what this …

Mysterious List Found!

By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; March 29, 2017)      I did not think that I was going to post anything today, but I was recently sorting out the documents for a recent production that has wrapped, and I came across this odd list of codes and letters. I asked around at the studio to figure out what it meant, but no one could make heads or tails of it. Out of options, I decided to consult the fan base to see if they could sort it out. 71288 JT171289 C571290 AOL71291 JT271292 FOF71293 KF171294 JT371295 TTV171296 AT171297 DA171298 LNM171299 LNM271301 AT271302 JT471303 SPR71304 AATZ171305 AT371306 TBBT171307 MC71308 JT571310 DA271311 FITP171312 FITP271313 ABM71314 SC171315 LI71316 NK171317 RR171318 RR271320 SU171321 LOT71322 DA371323 DA471324 LU71325 E171326 MPI71327 NK271328 SU2      I don't know if this list of codes is complete, but from what I can discern, they appear to have some sort of "covert" names, I guess?
