Flare's 2nd MOCpages Anniversary
Hi everyone! This is a (long) review of the last two years of me being on MOCpages, it has been a great time and I've really enjoyed it! I hope you enjoy the review.
About this creation

2009: Star Wars Noob


I joined MOCpages in June 2009. I found out about it through my friend Masked Builder whom you might've heard about. To be honest, I was a Star Wars noob and a pretty bad builder. See for yourself:



My first creation on MOCpages... posted on June 18th, 2009. Ah, the (bad) memories...



CUSTOM CLONES!!!!!!! AHHH!!!!!! GET THEM AWAY!!!!!! THE MADNESS!!!!!! THEY'RE BURNING MY EYES!!!!!!!!
*gasp*



Crappy spacefighter, when I built it I actually thought it looked good... wow...



My first decent creation, the BX-2 Naboo Luxury Speeder. I didn't say its good, just that its decent.


By the end of 2009 I actually started to build a few interesting MOCs.

The concept is interesting, I might attempt something like this again in the future.


Some other various builds from 2009 if you're really interested


2010: January through June


In 2010 I started to get a little more serious about my building, still a bit of a noob but improving!

My first castle creation, for one of my own lame MOColympics clones, not so good but pretty much my only castle creation for the entire year of 2010.



One of my first Atlantis creations, now you see where I started on that aspect. The landscaping isn't so great but the shape of the base is interesting so I guess that helps.



Also in the beginning of 2010, I started my Mars series. I did a bit in the first half of 2010 but haven't done much with it afterwards. I'm going to be recontinuing it soon though...



I also did a few steampunk creations, one of which is my most popular MOC to date... (oh dear)


1st Year Anniversary!


Ah, June 2010! My 1st MOCpages Anniversary. I built three MOCs for my 1st MOCpages Anniversary. One sucked, but the other two were decent.



LOLclonenoobslaughterLOL



Blacktron II Space station



Star Wars MOC. Meh.


2010: July through December


My building started to improve the most around this time, but most of my collection had to go into storage for a while, so my pieces have been really limited starting around June until a couple weeks ago ;)



Alien Attack on Planet Q. If I had any pink pieces I'd make more, but alas, I was only borrowing these pink pieces. Need to make a bricklink order :P


I lost so badly its not even funny
So yeah, I joined the MOColympics and guess who I had to go against? Dave Kaleta! Wow, what bad luck. In the end it was one of my best creations, but not good enough to beat Batman.



The Barfomatic.

It really spins. You really puke.



And we can never forget the famous MOC murders between Yuri and I.



Last but not least, we have the short-lived Dr. Dave Ulbrecht Martin Bobblestein Show. Might be continued in the distant future.


If you're looking for more builds from 2010, click here and here.


Also in 2010 I formed the TFOL Private Club:

Which is now the most discussed group on MOCpages, and a mature place for TFOLs to hang out.


2011: January to June


Now the new year comes around. You'll notice that I've started to focus on just one or two themes more than doing a variety of random builds that I'm "famous" for.



In 2011 I've been building a lot of Atlantis creations, like you've probably noticed. Its because I've been stocking up on my tan pieces, so its the easiest color to landscape in (and plus I really enjoy my atlantis builds!)



Another Atlantis creation I built for a contest.



My most recent Atlantis creation posted on MOCpages.


Other builds people have enjoyed that I built in 2011 are:

Planet of the Ostriches and my first Interactive Story


Other builds from 2011 can be found here.


Thanks for reading the review of my last two years here on MOCpages! I think I have really improved since I have first joined and I hope that you have learned something new about my MOCpages history.


Thanks for viewing and tell me what you think :)


And for a hint of upcoming builds.... they're of two themes I have absolutely no sets of. *cough*castle*cough*western*cough* :)

Thanks everyone!! I hope my next year will be even greater than the last two :)
Quoting Stuart Lucas Nice recap, if you keep improving at this rate you'll be a Lego legend in no time (rather than simply a MOCpages legend)! Although you left out your Aquastlenauts MOC that I still think was your best to date. Keep 'em coming!
Thanks Stuart, and you're right, somehow I forgot to add that one in. No fears, I'll add a link in ;)

Happy second anniversary! Your frst MOCs were really bad. Steampunk toilet was never good to me (although I think I gived it a like), but your first Atlantis build from 2011 has to be my favorite. It jsut looks so natural and landscaping is great. Honestly, I don't remember when did I joined MOCpages (although my first MOC was posted in January 2011).
