And this is the first time we've seen Hitler's brain since he assigned Haken and Erwin to their mission to Venezuela way back in #397. It looks like it was so long ago that even Haken has forgotten what the goal of the mission was!

2013-09-09 Rerun commentary: I believe here in panels 2 and 4 I did the trick where I didn't actually move any of the LEGO minifigures or set elements, but merely photographed things from a slightly different angle. In fact the same is almost certainly true of panel 3 as well.

While sometimes I would move things between every shot of a strip, in many cases I saved time by just shooting the same scene from a different angle to produce multiple comic panels from the one set-up. This was especially important in scenes with dozens of minifigures, since if I tried to move any of them I almost invariably wound up knocking them all over in a disastrous domino effect, meaning that it was a lot more work than it looks to get the scene set up again.
