My Third MOCiversary!
Has it really been three years?!
About this creation
September 27, 2007. To that date, my best MOC was a "Full Size" Clone Trooper's rifle from Star Wars.



December 20, 2010. Things have changed.



I'd like to credit the start in my increase in LEGO skill to July 15, 2008, the day I joined MOCpages.

Without MOCpages, I would be stuck back at LEGO.com as NickBrick729. My building would be limited to stacking bricks. I wouldn't know what SNOT is or the 5:2 ratio. I wouldn't get the feedback that I really needed to improve the next MOC! I wouldn't even be calling them MOCs!

Since MOCpages, I have joined Flickr, attended and displayed at Brickworld, and, of course, built LEGO to a skill level I would have never imagined possible back in 2007.

Let this be a lesson to the newbies here on MOCpages as well. It took me three years to get to where I am at now. THREE YEARS. You're not going to be a professional LEGO builder in a week on MOCpages. Build and doodle with bricks, learn how others build their MOCs, and leave criticizing comments to help other builders grow their skills. Don't say that you'll never be as good a builder as someone else on this site. You will.

I'd like to give thanks to my favorite builders for their inspiration, as well as those who call me a favorite (all 307 of you!). Also thanks to Cody G., Master Shifu Leo J, Green Man, 17 Chief Andreas L., Augustin "AG" Lee, Nate Andrews, Fred Ottens, Andrew SomersFiras Abu-Jaber, and E.K.O for commenting on my MOCs often. I'm a person who reads each and every comment.

In two weeks (July 29, 2011) I will be 18. Look out, there's going to be a new Halo builder amongst the AFOLs!

Also, just because I'm starting college in a month, doesn't mean I'm done with LEGO quite yet! (hint hint)

Please don't mention it, Nick, it's a small thing to comment!! Thank you for the encouragement though. You're quite right, you don't become a great builder overnight. Guys like you are a great inspiration to noobs like me! Wish you the best in college, and don't put down the bricks! -AG

Happy MOCiversary! It looks like you were a pretty decent builder way back then though, too. Thanks for acknowledging me, it's good to know that my input has been appreciated. That's why I do it, after all. :)
