Mociversary Prequel
A Journey through my first year on MOCpages in anticipation of the impending MOCiversary
About this creation
Ok so who knew that at the age of 24 I would dig up the old passion for Lego and find there are hundreds of other AFOLs in an online community? Well - I didn’t know…
I am now coming up to my 1st year anniversary on MOCpages, my 1 year build is currently in construction! So lets have a look at my journey as I come out of the dark years of internet gaming and back into the light of a real hobby!

Note: All images link to corresponding MOCs, not larger images!

My first upload was a small sample of my CAD work, more importantly – my name image!


This was my first ever build in around 10 years. Imperial Truce


For all those Technic lovers! This beast is packed of goodness!


A small example of my LDD work. Id still like to see this dragon built in the flesh one day!


My Mage Tower was my first MOC to make it to the front page! Cool!


Micro Scale Monastery


This Beach Resort model was my first MOC to get 50 likes! Thanks!




This Waterfall Scene got many a compliment for the water technique, yet I’ve only used it once since :-S


I blame the bad photography for the flop of Thunder Falls Tower. Though it did recently receive its 50th like. Thanks! (I was aiming for 80 LOL)


Uploading on Christmas day is never a good idea – this Competition House is my most unnoticed MOC in the last 3 months! I rate it as one of my best builds ever.


Pirates Remorse was my first MOC to get to the ‘Across MOCpages’ Bar, it was also my first MOC to get MOTD! Due to the MOTD it is now my first MOC to get over 100 likes. Thankyou to everyone for your support!


After Pirates Remorse I was inspired to build a ship, this is what I came up with – no it is not even close to the Imperial Flagship.


Killing time is always fun when your laying the smack on other fantastic builders – Heath you really are a good sport!


Well now that you’ve been taken through the journey of my first year you can only anticipate the epic build I have in store for my Mociversary! I am working a treat which will hopefully pull in Lego lovers of all genres.

On as side note: The Australia and New Zealand Builders Group is currently hosting a competition for Australasia to help revive the activity in the group – there are Lego prizes. If you are a Kiwi or a Kangaroo, hop along and visit the group for your chance to build and win! ~Thoy

I missed this earlier post but have seen many of the MOCs highlighted here. You have done some great stuff this first year. Just keep making them epic and keep trying new stuff.

Very nice creations! I was also not knowing I would come back to Legos, becoming an AFOL, and discovering Mocpages, at the age of 32. I must thank for that the magnificient Malle Hawking's Aircraft Carreer I've seen on the net and my discovery of Lego Digital Designer. I've worked since half of november 2010 on a big project, a nuclear submarine, and I think it won't be my last one! Happy to share with other AFOLs! :-)

Theres some nice builds here, but I really feel you need to break out of moc pages and join some of the adult forums. Eurobricks is the best IMO as it caters for all themes. You will get much more recognition if you start posting in forums and your creations have more chance of getting blogged on websites and magazines. Mocpages is just the start, theres a whole bigger AFOL world out there. I suggest joining Eurobricks and Classic Castle, also creating a Flickr account for your photos is a must. You have good building talent, so put it out there! Keep posting on mocpages as well tho :)

Haha no, the look at my first year is a compilation of my MOCs from the past year. You will know when the Anniversary is ;)

You're very talented, and I think your MOCs are waaaay better than anything I could even dream of building! Since I'm sort of new to MOCpages (but not to LEGOs), I hope I can accomplish something on the level of your success by MY 1st year anniversary...nah, I doubt it;)
