The BCN is here to announce our next contest! Build a vehicle for the series 2 collectable minifigs. The new collectable minifigs are cool but they need something to get around in. Your task is to build them a vehicle, any kind of vehicle as long as it represents the minifig. For offical rules and entry information go here. Prizes will be the minifig themselves, and more to be announced later.

You don’t need to have a Series 2 Minifig to enter.


One of my favorite comics I read is called, “How Sweet It Is” by Scott A. Jenkins, known better by Jynksie. Durring a break in sorting the lego, at the time sorting the greebles and misc technic stuff which are a bunch of small stuff which is really boring a pain really. Anywhoo. I was moving around the 7079 Drawbridge Defense ↓ Read the rest of this entry…


I was looking for things to do a gallery in WordPress. Then I was on Frumph.net seeing if Phil was around to offer suggestions. He wasn’t there on his chat. For those who use ComicPress, Phil (frumph) is one of the developers and is really helpful in getting things going. He helped me when I messed up the site. So searching around his site I came across an article about using the Gallery built into WordPress. So I tried the gallery and was impressed with how it works. Played with it and will be using it quite a bit. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…


I’ve been a good boy by not buying a bunch of LEGO. I pick up sets here and there, mostly the $10 minifig builder type of sets. Then I hit the stores with money in hand and an urge to quell. Also known as my addiction. I haven’t bought a bunch of large sets. Then I found Prince of Persia No.7573 The Battle of Alamut on sale for $59 at Toys R Us. I was in Ft.Collins Colorado on my way to meet David Adams from Slightly Off Topic comic, for dinner while he was in the state. So it was a good day. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…


After work today I stopped off at Target to do a little shopping. My need to satisfy my brick craving was overwhelming. So I found a few sets, I picked up Galactic Enforcer (on sale) and some small Kingdoms and World Racers sets. I also picked a few items for the bathroom remodel. So I went to the check out line and waited. For some reason at 4 in the afternoon they only have 2 checkers. Anyway, the lady in front of me was loading things on to the conveyer belt. She noticed the boxes of assorted LEGO products and asked if they were for my son. I snickered a bit and told her they were for me, these were my vice I said. I also mentioned I’ve bought some for my Grand Niece on occasion. She smiled and said she could never buy “Boys Toys” for her girls. I was stunned. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…


Don’t mind the mess. Just playing around with a few things. So the looks may change frequently as I try something new. It all works the same and the comic shouldn’t be affected unless I really screw something and need some assistance to fix it.


Why is LEGO evil? Well the answer is simple, they make cool stuff I want to buy. Sure I have an easier time staying away from the cool stuff Apple makes, I’m a Mac guy and proud of it which could be a different post. Anywho, I recently traveled via the internet to LEGO.com and I also get their email newsletter, and found they’ve begun selling a bunch of new stuff. I’d have known aboot this earlier but I’ve been spending time do a bathroom remodel. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…


Genuine Draft is going to have a few changes in content. Don’t worry it’s nothing drastic. I’ve been tinkering with a second comic using some panels from the comic and just creating misc pics with whatever parts and figs laying around. I was originally going to launch it as a second comic alongside Genuine Draft. It’s a single panel comic, so it’s simple. My initial plans didn’t work out so I put it on hold for a while. I checked my stats for the last 18 months and found that I get less than a dozen hits on Saturdays and Sundays. And a few comments from my twitter friends have said they don’t like to have to click back 3 strips to get to the last comic they saw then continue. So I thought I’d make the weekends different and not related to the main storyline.

So this journey has begun.
