  • The Two Construction Turtles features the character Tubs the Turtle. Tubs was first introduced in January 1998 in Rocky's Raiders; he appeared later that year as one of the ornaments in the Holiday Ornaments Set and in 1999 on Tubs Pin, the event pin for the Primordial Crooze event, and as the Captain of the ship on the Primordial Sloop.

 

  • This time, Tubs is consulting with a colleague on a construction site - they seem to be discussing plans for a new house!
