I have to agree with your tip about doing something clever or intricate, the lettering on my R1 entry last year was the only reason I made it on. That's why I'll probably do some sort of character (humanoid or otherwise) since they involve so many fancy angles and joints.

So . . . clever creations? I don't think I'll go very far, then. But that's my choice; I've mainly built castles throughout my time with Lego. But I guess I'll wait for the topics and then build the best I can.

I think your talent lies in Mecha Alex. Your castles rule and all but your Crimson Typhoon is pure amazing. I am good at rock formations. I can make really natural looking rock stuff to put my castles on.

Yeah, your landscapes and rocks and stuff are crazy awesome. I've always been thinking "who's gonna be the next Blake Baer?" I mean, who's gonna be that good for a TFOL next? You're close, man. So is Mark.

One of my strengths is rockwork, sadly rockwork isn't really that skillful or complex, and won't really be a big boost to your score in the MO's :/ That's why I'm planning on making something large scale to give any characters plenty of expression and detail.

I am good at sports to. I am fairly fast and my 6 feet of height give me a good advantage at basketball. You are way better at building mecha than me though. I tried once and failed completelely xD

Nice, basketball. What other sports do you play? My sprint is okay; 100 meters in just under 13 seconds. But my medium distance is best: 3 km in 9 min 15 sec. My long distance is good, better than most in my school district because everyone is into sprinting. My vertical is VERY poor, considering. But for long jump? Average. Congratulations. You know everything about me. Athletically, that is.

I haven't clocked my run for a while. My vertical is pretty good. It's about a foot and I can now dunk on a nine foot goal. I also play football and snowboard. BTW do you watch the X-games?

Awesome, dunking on a nine foot goal. I can't quite do that. Are you sure your vertical is only about a foot? Because mine is about 2 feet, and I'm 100% sure you can reach higher than me, jumping. Okay, I've always thought that football would be fun, but I never got into it. I don't really watch the X games, but a lot of my friends do.

Since I'd rather spend my money on Lego, I have all my bricks in Ziploc bags. It is really effective, because each bag is a different piece and colour. They also fit nicely into a big tote.

I only use it for instructions, otherwise it's not very good. Especially when it comes to designing models. You'll be tempted to use the same piece over and over again since that's easy, which makes for a very bland model.
