[Well Played, Number 13]
[10.23.08 Mike] Finally!

Wow, it's really been an amazingly hectic LEGO -filled past few weeks for me. First, I was making
the mad scramble to build some MOCs for BrickCon. Then, I got sick right before the trip to Seattle.
But, I still went and had an outstanding time -- BothCon, the first official gathering of FBTB
members, was a great success. Back at home, a week later, I had the opportunity to participate in
the grand opening of a new LEGO retail store in my area, where a giant LEGO Yoda was
constructed to commemorate the event. I've got lots of photos and stories to share from all of of
the above, and I plan on making posts in the forums to do so.

But! In all my escapades, I'm afraid I've allowed Well Played to fall behind. So, here I am to remedy
the situation. And, then some. Well Played, in its hiatus, has undergone a metamorphosis. Oh, it's
still gonna poke plenty fun at AFOLs, that'll never change. But, what's different is its look. I'm trying
a new drawing style. The cast is looking slicker and more cartooney than ever, and I'm sure you'll
like what you see.

This weeks's comic is actually somewhat based on truth. When I left for my trip to Seattle to attend
BrickCon, I felt so sick, I didn't even bother to pack clothing. It's true! And, with that small bit of
setup, I'll leave you to check out this week's Well Played...



Haha! Mike, I love the joke here, and the expression on Ry's face is hilarious, but I personally preferred the old art style. Either way, great job.

Me. It's from the picture used in Austin's Doodletorium.

I think a better picture should have been used, I don't like that one so much... I do however think Jake looks the best he ever has, so there's a good thing.

Dang, you're right. I think.

Maybe it's some sort of weird amalgamation of the both of us. Confused

Heh, at least I don't look like Spock. You so do, don't deny it. You're even wearing the same coloured shirt... Laughing

I do deny it, and for two reasons.

1. We're not even sure that's me, and not Ed.
2. Spock never looked that high.

You're the one on the far left, Winks. Mike showed me a sketch version in chat, and it had our names labelled. And Ed is the one who looks like Spock.

Huh, I discounted that one as me because I've got more of a faux-tee than a goatee.

I still hold that Spock never looked that wide-eyed and amazed though.

Also, I retract the "handsome devil" comment.

If time permits! Death Star has given me a few ideas, plus I have a Sail Barge one written I wanted to do way back when that set come out.

Right now you sort of are getting comics by me, here: http://starwars.lego.com/en-us/Comics/comic1.aspx and here: http://starwars.lego.com/en-us/Comics/comic3.aspx and seven more episodes to come (the last few episodes will be a continuing multi-part story!)! I didn't write them, but I storyboarded them, meaning I designed all the shots and layouts, and indicated how the characters move.

I admit to the extra obscurity of this week's issue. The subject matter stems from a series of events / conversations that took place outside of and then within FBTB chat, which lead to what has now developed into something that has been given it's very own forum within the FBTB forums. It's a bit of an inside joke, but something that anyone who frequents the forums or is familiar with DonSolo in general - he being a MOD (or, at least was Wink ) here on FBTB and a very well known individual to the extended LEGO community on Flickr - would at least recognize the reference to.

I'd just like to reiterate to everyone that Well Played is not intended to be strictly a comic about LEGO Star Wars. Rather, using ourselves (the FBTB staff) as the main characters, we try to poke fun at AFOLs in general: it's satirical, observational humour that I sincerely hope has been well received by all who have taken the time to read it. We're not out to promote LEGO products. All we wanna do is make some jokes that we think members of the LEGO community might find funny. Sometimes we'll do something that appeals / applies to the community as a whole, and other times we'll do something centered around an inside joke within the FBTB forum community. Well Played isn't about the brick itself, but rather the people who love the brick. But, it's not just about being an AFOL. It's about being the the type of person who happens to be an AFOL, if that makes any sense. Here at FBTB, we share a common interest, that being LEGO Star Wars. But, there's so much more that keeps us coming back and interacting with each other. There's so much more that makes us continually form long-lasting friendships with each other. That's what Well Played is about. It's about capturing that certain something that makes us all Bothans. Smile

With the exception of a couple weeks where I had good excuse, I've managed to post a comic every week since I began doing them. And, considering I've never drawn comics before, and I've only been doing this for a few months, I don't think I'm doing too badly. I'm not a professional animator or graphic designer, so I'm really just learning as I go. They'll get better, I swear. Smile

If you've never drawn comics before, then you're doing really, really good! It doesn't show. Doing a weekly comic is really hard, I find it hard, too, with the actual writing being the toughest thing. Pleasing all the people all the time is almost impossible, so don't worry about it! There's nothing wrong with doing obscure gags- I do that a lot with my own Lethargic Lad comic. However, when I'm doing new AFOLs comics for Brick Journal or my Star Wars comics here (and there will be more one day!), I struggle with "will people get this?" a lot more.

Well, now that Mike is laid up in the hospital he should have plenty of time to work on a new issue. Wink

Actually I hope he gets plenty of rest and works on the new issue when he feels better. Although the hospital should be good fodder for ideas.

A nice continuation or riff on Greg's "loudhailer/gun confusion" comic from way back there! And pirates = it's all good!
