So, that wraps up our summer-long story, “Date Night II”! Next up, a story that leads perfectly into Halloween!

Sandy Moondust was a very limited edition “astrobot” minifigure available only at the 2002 World Space Congress, and a photograph of her was launched into space aboard Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity! (There was also a Biff Starling figure whose image was placed inside Mars Exploration Rover Spirit.) Sandy has appeared in the comic before, albeit with a different face. Sandy is an expensive minifigure, but I finally managed to procure her for a lower cost by purchasing the parts individually from different stores on Bricklink.
