C&C Legos: Season 1 – Episode 1

Back to Episode Index

Description: In this episode, some GDI soldiers discover Tiberium! And they’re in for a little more than they bargained for!

About this episode: Ahh, yes, this is the first episode of C&C Legos I ever made. Before this, I made a couple stop motion videos, but it just hit me one day, while I was posting some of my previous work to a C&C fansite: They’d prefer C&C related materials! So this is what I came up with. It took me probably six to eight days to make, if I remember correctly, and people loved it so much, that it spread across the C&C community like wildfire. Of course, back then, in 2007, the C&C community was also much more active, so it was easier to get stuff like this pushed around.

A few months prior to releasing this, I had gotten back from a summit at the EA studios in Los Angeles, and people were eagerly awaiting C&C 3. I made a few references to it, specifically the fact that some student from MIT or some college made a claim that Tiberium poisoning effects most likely were caused by radiation. Many fans were upset by this, but thinking back on it, it was pretty obvious. The Geiger counter in Renegade was probably the biggest giveaway.

There’s also a few references to Tiberian Sun, as well, most profoundly the limpet drone that shows up in the background. When this episode was made, I didn’t specifically aim for it to be a Tiberian Dawn based episode, but that quickly changed as I made the second and third episode, and I realized that I would likely continue this for a long time.
