- "The Brickster is ready for some tricks, sir!"
- ―The Brickster from LEGO Island 2: The Brickster's Revenge.
The Brickster is the primary antagonist of the LEGO Island video games, these include, 5731 LEGO Island, 5774 LEGO Island 2: The Brickster's Revenge and Island Xtreme Stunts. However, the Brickster also appears as the main antagonist in the video game Soccer Mania.
According to the bonus material included in the LEGO Island PC box set, the Brickster was created by the Infomaniac several zillion years ago. The two were the best of friends until the Informaniac decided he wanted to create new friends to play with. Outraged, the Brickster began to steal bricks from LEGO Island and left to create his own island, now known as Ogel Island (Ogel for short). Ogel Island, however, merely stood for the opposite of all that LEGO stands for. It has no relation to the character Ogel (although there are mentions on LEGO.com that the Brickster wished to be like Ogel).
LEGO Island Edit
Sometime between the events of the Brickster's departure from LEGO Island and the start of the game, the Brickster was imprisoned in the LEGO Island jail, most likely for the robbery of the bricks to create Ogel Island. He somehow managed to make a call to the local pizzeria to order one of Papa Brickolini's Ultra hot and spicy pizzas, posing as Nick Brick, which he then used to melt the door of his cell and escape in the nearby police helicopter, once his pizza was delivered by Pepper Roni. The Brickster then stole the red brick on top of the Information Center, followed by stealing the Ambulance. This allowed the Brickster to begin to terrorise the island by shrinking the buildings by stealing much of the bricks of the buildings. Pepper Roni was then sent out to retrieve the parts for the police helicopter, which the Brickster hid throughout the island. Once the helicopter was complete, Pepper captured the Brickster by shooting pizzas and doughnuts at him, stuffing the Brickster until he couldn't do anything, allowing him to then be caught by Nick Brick. He was then imprisoned in the new LEGO Island jail.
LEGO Island 2 Edit
In LEGO Island 2, after being in jail for some time, the Brickster began his long-winded plan to escape. He would continuously have pizzas delivered to him (though he wasn't allowed anything with more than one pepper) and saved the peppers on them. Once he had enough peppers, he ate them all and used his "brickster dragon breath" to melt to door of the jail and escape (again). Shortly after, he stole the Constructopedia from the Information Center and tore out its pages (destroying the buildings in LEGO Island) and scattered them across the world. He then called the Brickster bots from Ogel Island to harass the people of LEGO Island while he escaped back to Ogel. Eventually, Pepper Roni was able to collect all the missing pages of the Constructopedia and journeyed to Ogel to defeat the Brickster, who meanwhile had kidnapped Mama and Papa Brickolini, so he could have pizzas whenever he wished. After a short battle, the Brickster was once again defeated by pizzas, thrown by Pepper, but this time was imprisoned in a small tower on Ogel.
Island Xtreme Stunts Edit
In Island Xtreme Stunts, the Brickster promised to reform, so was let out of jail. He helped Pepper film the action scenes for the movie, taking the place of the bad guy. Once Pepper filmed the parachuting scene, the Brickster revealed that his involvement in the film was merely a cover for his evil plan: Using the brickster bots provided to build the sets, he built a tower from which he would use a super computer to steal all the bricks in the world. He kidnapped the Infomaniac, went to the top of the mountain, and started dropping things around the island. Pepper had to drive a Brickster car to the base of the mountain while avoiding the objects. After that, Pepper had to reach the top of the mountain. The Brickster was waiting, and they fought. The Brickster jumped and landed on his bottom, sending shockwaves across the top. Pepper threw pizzas at him, and succeeded in knocking him off, with the Brickster being rescued by his Brickster bots each time. Eventually, the Brickster also sent waves of Brickster bots at Pepper, and used a loud shout to push Pepper backwards, but Pepper finally succeeded in defeating him.
Soccer Mania Edit
As well as being the main antagonist in the LEGO Island series, he also assumes this role in Soccer Mania. After the player's team wins the initial few matches, the team is to be awarded with a trophy, but The Brickster suddenly appears, stealing the trophy and disappearing. The player's team then finds itself having to hunt down The Brickster, winning several football matches along the way, only to find he has escaped in a Spaceship. After the player is then able to give chase again (by winning several more matches to gain pieces of a Spaceship), The Brickster is found to be on Mars. The player is then faced with playing the Martian team and then the Brickster-Bot team at football, both of which are defeated. The Brickster then assembles a football team of his own to play against the player. Once The Brickster's team is defeated, The Brickster is seen "safely" locked in the Spaceship hold, after it sets off again from Mars. But The Brickster is seen clutching a key, possibly planning his escape.
LEGO Racers 2 Edit
The Brickster makes a cameo in LEGO Racers 2. In the opening cutscene when Rocket Racer picks up a paper reporting his race in LEGO Racers. A picture on the back of the paper shows The Brickster behind bars. By the looks of it, its about his appearance Soccer Mania.
Key Chain Edit
The Brickster keychain was available free with the purchase of LEGO Island 2: The Brickster's Revenge. It has movable parts just the same as the LEGO minifigures that come with LEGO sets, however the legs and head do not detach from the body. His left hand is blue and he has a black beanie (as he does in the game). You can also get Brickster from many of the LEGO Island Extreme Stunts sets. The Brickster is a dangerous criminal on LEGO Island.
