2WC 15: Redesign a MOC
Join to comment
 Group admin 
Well it's about time I got to choose and Idea I really like.

Now due to the MocOlympics coming up, I don't want to take away from anyone's time interested in entering that and still wanting to participate in events here, and I also don't want to do anything to bring forth lower quality entries due to attention from spectators of the MocOlympics taking up their time, which will happen because I'll be one.

It's simple, but then still a challenge. What is the one MOC you've posted here that you just absolutely cringe at thinking you made that and posted it for the world to see? You liked the concept and you really liked it when you first made it, but now that your skills have improved or piece quantity has grown or both, it's just not what it could have been. Well, there's no shame in redesigning a MOC. And that's all I'm asking for entries. Redesign one of your own MOCs.

You actually have quite the advantage, too, because you know the ins and outs of your creations and what needs to be improved, a judge doesn't. Take the advice given by others, use techniques you know of and make that creation's quality grow exponentially!

Regulations:
~You can only post new creations. (In the sense that you don't use an older redesign if you've done one before.)
~You must provide a link to OR image(s) of your original verion.
~You are not necessarily limited to just MOCpages, it can be from Brickshelf, Flickr, or other image sharing website, however MOCpages will be much more helpful.
~You cannot use someone else's MOC, it must be your creation only.
~You must provide a link to your entry in the comments below.
~Your entry must be in by 11:59pm Friday, September 6th, 2013, MOCpages Time.
~There is no specific theme or reason for your redesign, meaning you can take any of your creations made and use it. You could even use something from a contest we held and the best part is that you don't even have to follow the old contest's rules!

Judging:

Total: 20

Build: 10
Techniques used, originality, creativity, etc.

Design: 5
Does it look anything like the previous verion? Are there similarities that make the viewer understand this is a redesign of a previous creation?

Presentation: 5
Clear pictures, grammar, working links, etc. NOTE: You will not be penalized for blurry pictures of your previous verion of the MOC.

Happy building!
Don't forget that all entries must be in by Friday, September 6th!

If you need an example, take my creation Domo:

Domo: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/211765
Cho Domo: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/285743

He has a very similar head, long arms, similar details like the tan spikes and the red and dark read color scheme. The current verion is just bulkier and has new things like fingers and actual feet.

You can also think of the number of 4x4 DeLoreans someone has made as new pieces are produced or perhaps the number of versions a BIO-MOCist's Self MOC has.

I MIGHT enter...I have one MOC that needs improvement. Does it have to be the same size or can you make it bigger, like can you change it in anyway you want?

It does not have to be the same size. It just has to have elements of the first version.

Yes. I am a fan of Bio-MOCs, and while I don't know the exact techniques, I know when things do look good and in the case of this contest, it just has to have resembling elements of the first version.

That was seriously four challenges ago?!? Man time moves fast...

And it's been five since I've last won one. Despite only needing one more to win my fifth contest in this group (and tenth anywhere, or something like that. I've lost count).

Sadly I won't have time to participate in this one due to the MO's and lack of ideas, and the next few (hopefully) I won't be able to participate in either due to the MO's as well. I don't really expect to make it past round 2 though, especially if I'm put against someone like Nick V again. Which is why I'm trying to get a really high score in round 1 so I don't have to worry about him.

Well, all you need to know is that he's obsessed with SW, and I won't say anything about it since I'm obsessed with Ratchet and Clank.

Once in one of his YouTube videos he referred to the OT as "real life" :P

Well at first I just kinda creeped on his creations (so pretty much I stalked him), then I was invited to this group (is this public? I forgot) and here he was.....sooooo no, I am not familiar with the hunting patterns of the species Mclegous-Boyicus. :P

Woah, what? In one of my YouTube videos? I only remember running around a parking lot with a LEGO Airplane and making weird noises in "real life." I don't know, I've been on YouTube for 3 years now, who knows what I haven't said.

Yep, I think it was in your Jabba's Sail Barge review (though I might be completely wrong), you were saying something about the expanded universe and then you called the OT "real life". Not positive it was that one, but I know it was this summer.

I'm not denying anything, but that just doesn't sound healthy if that's what I said. I'm losing a sense of reality!

Yep, that's fine. If it were a strictly purist contest, it might be iffier, but there's no rules regarding purism here (other than that non-Lego elements should be kept to a minimum, obviously), so go for it!

Yeah, it looks like MClegoboy forgot again..

I did forget because my Pschology Teacher wasn't very clear on when things were supposed to be done, and so Wednesday, I did homework nearly all day and so I never went to MOCpages. Thursday, I have a class that goes until 5:15pm and I am really tired of day still being around and I never went to MOCpages afterward. Friday, I did upload stuff but then I don't remember what happened Friday. Saturday and when I want to go to MOCpages, it's broken! I check my activity to know what groups to go to, and when nothing is said in this group, I never check things out here. But yeah, I forgot, but I would have remembered when I saw stuff yesturday, had MOCpages worked for me.
