After finishing Late for the Soccer Match, Seth Masterson is left at the studio while almost everyone else is working on Johnny Thunder and the Wisdom of the Ancients. Completely bored, he has decided to have some fun. Insisting that the best way to improve is to get practice, he wants to see how the Mustache Maniacs Film Co. fan base would do at a series of challenges. Each month, he gives a challenge, which must be completed by the end of the said month. In the meantime, he will be looking for our old LEGO Studios movies from 2002 – 2004.
