I decided to take a stroll down memory lane and review some of the MOC's I created using "old" light gray and dark gray. What's particularly special about these MOC's is that they may never be reproduced using the new gray colors. This is because the molds for many parts have been retired and/or many parts will likely never be reproduced in new gray. The huge Einstein head in the picture above was taken at Legoland CA. It was also made with "old" gray.
I will always like Old Gray over Bluish Gray. It actually looks Gray. It's what I started out with and I wich my UCS Imperial Star Destroyer was from 2003 because it would have been in all Old Gray. It looks cool, but I feel it would look even cooler in Old Gray. Old Gray forever!
Allways a treat to the eye watching Your ships and the way You develop throuhgout the years. Old gray will be remebered for a long time. Personally I like the dark bluish gray color. You kan build some really nice space ships, small or big and still keep it cool, maybe use it for the enemy fleet. Bricklink is where I buy most of my parts and the old gray is also sold there, used or new. It might cost a little extrs since it's no longer manufactered, but it's not so bad. I have quite a lego collection of parts and sets thanks to bricklink and a lot of old gray parts. Hope to see Your new ship The Viking at MOCpages soon. Soren, Denmark.
My thoughts exactly! The new grey looks so dumb! Who wants BLUE in their GREY!?!? Maybe there should be some things that are blue-grey, but it's a completely different colour! The old one looks so much more serious and better. Very good old grey creations.
You are a really great MOCer on ships. you have so much creativity for it, I would never think of those ships you built, and the best thing on it, is that they are all absolutely stunning. I really really really enjoy surfing on your page and MOC's. Can you tell me where you got all those parts? I mean you built so many big ships, where did you got all those parts?

do you destroy your lego creations after you build them or do you save them
It depends. If it is a creation that isn't using up parts that I want for another creation then I keep it together. Most of the small to medium ships are still together. But usually the huge ships get taken apart.
"Old Gray" Certainely made your works unique and fun. Some things they should never change, like taking older bricks off the market.... It's only now we realise how cool they are. And yes, the new grey sucks.
DARN RIGHT! The new grey looks so aweful, as well as many of the new colours. I'm trying to get my hands on as much "classic" lego as possible. Especially grey. Even the new pieces seem to not be as good. Lego is not lego anymore it seems. FIGHT THE POWER!
This is cool because it gets most of your MOC's with the old gray together in one site. That in itself is worth the five. Thanks for the Advice on building, i took it. You're a good fellow, you know? -Phil
I think the review below proves that your MOCs are so darn good that they've shifted the focus from your real issue (colour change) to the MOCs. Anyway, I think this is a good tribute to old grey (good MOCs = worthy tribute), and I say this without trying to sound that I like the new colours, or that I like the old, or even that I am a fence sitter. I'd just like to stay out of it.
