Where Did THAT Come From – Mech Robot & Bioluminescent Flowers

In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where did THAT Come From?


By Hawking’s chair and wowza! Act Three of the 2016 TSTO SciFi Event hasarrived and once again there’s even more new stuff to add to Stephen Hawking, black holes, multidimensional visitors, and lots of sciencey futuristic stuff to figure out where to put in our games. A lot of this new stuff might have you wondering just where the heck it all comes from. Well no fears inter-quantum dimensional guys and gals, that’s where this walking carpet earns his bread and butter (seriously, that’s all I’m paid in lol). For this dimension of origin stories, we’ll be looking at:

Mech Robot – 1st Act Three Prize for 2,750 anti matter
Bioluminescent Flowers – Level 8 craftable

We leave the safe atmospheric confines of Earth for this round of origins and head of to “Treehouse of Horror XXII” (S23:E3) and the “In the Na’vi” segment. Once upon a time on Halloween 2013, I posted a whole recap about this segment as one of my favorite Halloween moments. Woohoo! Welcome to Rigel VII. A planet that is being mined for hilarium (a much better name than unobtanium) which Krusty needs to make his audiences laugh, especially the Nazis. We see the mech robot right towards the beginning as Super Nintendo Chalmers is briefing the new arrivals to the location with “extreme temperatures and vicious indigenous life forms.”


Bart plays the Jake Sully character. No surprise, some of the colonists have their consciousness sent over to avatars. Of course, since this is Rigel VII, the avatars are Rigellians.


Bring on more parody of the James Cameron movie. When Bart meets Kamala, Milhouse is seen among the bioluminescent flowers. “Even when we’re monsters he gets the girl.” Poor Milly.


Even worse, he kicks a rock and every part of the planet is alive. As he pulls flowers to apologize, Milhouse just makes it worse. The flowers are the Rigellian’s brothers. I won’t even mention what Milhouse does to Uncle Tree.


Just like the long movie that created a potentially unbreakable worldwide box office record, everything on the planet is bioluminescent.


Bart ends up impregnanting Kamala and discovers the location of the hilarium. It’s secreted by the Rigellian Queen and keeps the preggo Rigellians from being cranky.


Milhouse calls in the location and the colonizers are off to steal the precious resource. Lots and lots of mech suits appear as the creatures of Rigel 7 battle to protect the planet. These mech robots have the gun and ammo chain we see in TSTO.


Chalmers calls the mechanic battle bot a servo suit so we could go with that name too if we want.


Although we never see Bart in the servo suit, this is its origin. So there you go friends, the origins of the bioluminescent flowers and the mech robot/servo suit. The designers over at EA must like this segment as much as me since we saw a bunch from it during Halloween 2014 and even got the jet from it in Superheroes 2016. What’s your opinion of the new items? I’m really digging the flowers (get it, digging?) Did you earn the prize yet? Sound off in the comments and good luck tapping in the event horizon.

TTFN… Wookiee out!

  1. Put the flowers in Springfield Heights. They are a big boost to my lagging Tree hugging rating.

  2. Oh I didn’t know that truck dinosaur is from here too.

  3. The bioluminescent flowers are fantastic… I really want a neon-glow themed event now!

  4. Put Rigellian Shrubs around Mech Robot in my town without realising they were from the same episode. They look kinda good together.

  5. Never saw Avatar, and never will, voluntarily at least.

    Still, dig the stuff!

    • Oh it is like a must see. But I dont have a urge to watch a second time. No repeat watch value for me.

      • Because, based on everything I’ve heard and read, both from people who loved it and those who didn’t, I am 99.99999% certain that I will not only not like it, but be very, very irritated at it through the entire experience.

        • Dude, WATCH IT!!! it’s frikin AWESOME!!! not being sarcastic, it is a really cool movie… I have never met anyone who doesn’t like it. Especially if you like sci-fi and fantasy, so many fun, creative creatures and the CGI is seriously mind-blowing. It’s easy to pick apart any movie, but if you don’t over-analyze the technical stuff I think you will like it, A lot of people automatically are too cool to like something if it’s popular and “mainstream” . I’m a film-maker myself, so I can usually find something to like in a movie even if it’s not my thing altogether… for example I watched “The Neon Demon” last night, and I didn’t love the story or pace, but the cinematography was so good!

          • Based on everything I’ve heard, I won’t like the storytelling, which is by far the most important to me, and no amount of cool visuals will make up for it. Sure, I *might* be wrong, but I know myself well enough to not want to spend the time to find out.
