Hello There Clammers!
It’s nerd city in Quahog these days as the Comic-Con Event is upon us! Not only have the nerds invaded the streets of Quahog, but celebrities are popping up all over the place! The fifth celebrity you’ll find hanging around Comic-Con is Stan Lee!
Personally, I’m a HUGE fan of this aspect of the Comic-Con Event. I think it’s incredibly awesome to see guest stars make appearances, as playable characters, in TQFS! It adds a level of excitement to the game, and I’m loving every minute of it! Can’t wait to see how the others make their grand entrances!
Of course to enjoy all Stan has to offer in TQFS you’ll have to unlock him, which is sometimes easier said than done! So let’s take a closer look at the details behind the Creator….
Stan arrives in Quahog via the Comic-Con Event. You’ll find him dangling from the flagpole (after Mutant Stewie stuck him there). It’ll cost you 200 Blam! and take 8hrs to repair the flagpole & “cut” Stan down. Once you’ve freed him from the webs of Mutant Stewie, you’ll have to recruit him to stay in Quahog for Comic-Con. Of course you do this by collecting STUFF, did you expect something different? 😉
Note: Once the event is over Stan will stay in your Quahog FOREVER, as long as you fully unlock him. In other words you have to collect all the stuff required to unlock him. If you don’t fully unlock him and add him as a playable character BEFORE Comic-Con ends he’ll leave with the event.
Unlocking Stan Lee isn’t too terrible, but he does have 4 requirements (and one of them is a TON of Blam!). The items are Rare and Extra Rare so the drop rates & time to unlock him will vary. Let’s take a closer look at what’s required:
15 Movie Cameras
10 Classic Books
-You can earn the Movie Cameras by bombing Minion Stewies. You can also earn them from making Mort Hold a Fundraiser or Patrick Stewart do Football tricks for 12 hrs. They’ll also occassionally drop from Outhouse of Loneliness. Or you can spend clams for them to always drop from Quahog Film Museum.
-You can earn the Notebooks by making Lois Write Passive Aggressive Emails. You can also get them from tapping Red Shirt Nerds. Or you can spend clams and get them to always from Stan Lee’s Trailer.
-You can earn the Classic Books by bombing Minino Stewies. You can also earn them from making Quagmire watch My Little Furry. They’ll also occasionally drop from the “Q” Hotel. Or you can spend clams and always get them from the Old Timey Book Store
–Blam! is earned by completing tasks for Characters from Districts 1 and 2 (Peter, Bonnie, Chris, Quagmire, Jerome & Bruce), it will also fall from the Calmterprise, the “Q”, the Convention Center, zapping nerds & Mutant Stewies (also bombing minions and spraying giant Stewie with pesticides) & can be earned from completing parts of the questline for Comic-Con. You’ll need 15,000 Blam! to Unlock Stan. Keep in mind once you unlock him, you’ll lose those 15,000 Blam! from your on hand total (top left, next to coins).
So now that we know HOW to unlock Stan Lee, let’s take a look at his tasks once he’s unlocked:
|Practice for a Cameo||1hr||$20, 12xp||4||2|
|Read Comics||2hrs||$30, 20xp||6||1|
|Practice Peter Parkour||4hrs||$50, 30xp||10||1|
|Try Out a Character Idea||8hrs||$80, 50xp||16||3|
|Write Comics||12hrs||$100, 65xp||20||1|
|Be a Background Extra||24hrs||$150, 100xp||30||3|
For those of you that like more details…here’s a look at a few of Stan Lee’s outdoor tasks:
There you have it….the details on bringing this comic genius to Quahog! As you can see Stans’s got a few Blam! earning tasks, which is great because once unlocked you’ll have another character to help you earn Blam! Once unlocked he’ll continue with his own questline, The Creator, which will help you earn more Blam!
