So theme is Design a Lego set?

Haha, this is one of the ones that we were about to do in my MOC-off against Tom.

Could we start it tomorrow, perhaps? Not today, I have a few MOCs to post and disassemble...

Yeah, not today, I'm going to the beach in a few minutes with my sister, who just came home from college. Tomorrow sounds great! Good luck, and I can;t wait to see the MOCs you're posting today!

I've been meaning to say this for a while but couldn't due to mocpages' down time so...

Could we change the category? I now remember why Tom and I decided not to do it, building like Lego designers doesn't allow us to show as much skill/detail since we would have to focus on sturdiness and piece efficiency...

Do you want to do "Medieval Village"?

Okay, we can change it, but my sister is unfortunately using my village pieces. Could we possibly do Ancient Greece or Rome? I have plenty available pieces for that.

And I don't :/ at least in terms of minifigures.

Here's some other ideas:

Set Alternative

Build a creation with no studded connections

A creation with no studded connections would be too hard, me thinks. Set Alternative sounds fine, but what exactly would you have in mind?

A MOC using only the pieces from one set of any theme, that is as different from the original set as possible. We might want to have a restriction on the number of pieces of the original set. 1000 perhaps?

A story that begins and ends with the phrases given. So, how do you want to come up with the phrases? Do you want to have a judge choose them, or do you want to have one of us choose the beginning, and the other choose the end?

We'd also have to agree on a name for the main character before coming up with the phrases since they might use the character's name.

It would be interesting to each pick a sentence without looking at the other person's, so that it's completely random and more difficult :)

Alright, this is taking too long. At this point we only have 9 days left, 8 for me if I count the half day I need to spend typing up the story and half day spent posting. And we still have no judges or quotes. Let's just start now. I'll make the beginning quote, and you make the end one.

Beginning:
It was from that lady's plea that the quest for the missing Lego brick began.

Unless I run out of pieces, which is quite possible with my ambitious builds. I need at least 5-6, maybe 8... I've completed the first one, which used up most of my light grey/white/black tiles, so I won't be able to build all the scenes at the same time...

Actually I'll abuse Alex B's siggy. Is A M's siggy his buddy icon? If so, it looks rídiculous as a yellow minifigure and the hat makes it look too similar to another character...

Just curious, how many builds will you have in your story? After writing out the whole story and all of the photos I'll need, I learned mine will need 8-9 builds, plus one modification of a build. And I haven't even completed my second build yet. Which is 42 studs long. I'm really overdoing things.

At least I won't have to spend too long on photos, it only needs 38 and I've already gotten 13...
