A silent comic depicting the return of April 3rd and its effects on one particular minifig.
About this creation
The mini model Power Miner sets I made for this comic:
The Thunder Driller was the first mini I made and the model that sparked the design of this comic.
The Crystal Sweeper obviously contains the most pieces, and is pretty decent considering the scale and fact that I do not own a single Power Miners set.
This is my favorite of the minis, the Mine Mech. This is a horrible bipedal walker (as compared to, say, the AT-RT), but is a pretty good mini. It requires a stand.
My least favorite, the Claw Digger, but it had to be made to complete the original vehicular collection. I was basically scrounging to find green and orange pieces by the time I got to this model, as every Star Wars fan knows they are rare finds in SW sets.
The Granite Grinder was, like the Claw Digger, scrounged from available green and orange pieces.

This did not really happen to me, and yes, FBTB is back to normal now.
Grand Admiral Darren asked what happened to the huge computer moniter from April 1st:
It was destroyed in the main minifig's fit of rage (in episode 1), who had to go economy size after purchasing the complete Power Miners collection.
The Boulder Blaster is not included because I did not have the pieces and because it was not part of the original collection.
The Stone Chopper is not included because It was virtually impossible at that scale using the pieces I own, and because I think it looks so bad that even a lonely, raging minifig wouldn't buy it.
