About this creation


Some of you have been wondering who I was going to do a MOCoff with, well here it is. It’s YOU! In nature, if an organism doesn’t evolve, it doesn’t survive. That being said, I give you the 2008 MocOlympics! The next evolution of the MOCoff. Here’s how it’s gonna work, I need you… yes you sitting there with your finger in your nose. Take it out and pay attention. Eewww, don’t eat it… gross. Anyway, I’ve gotten a little flak about how I handled the “Mocies” so I decided to open this up to the community as a whole and not horde it within my “little circle”. I do have some players already signed up and ready to do battle in the arena but I’ve got a few more spots to fill and I want you!





How do I sign up you ask? I know you didn’t but I’m gonna tell you anyway. Leave a review at the bottom (make sure your e-mail address is attached) stating your intent to toss yourself on the pyre. I’m not going to say how many spots I have open (gotta leave some suspense here) but the first “x” number of people who sign up are in!







Alright now, what exactly is this? It’s the Tournament of Champions! The ultimate MOCoff! Here’s how it works…

The contest is set up in a series of elimination rounds. So let’s say I’ve got 16 players total. The first round consists of 8 matches with the winners advancing to round two and the “runners up”… lost to the annals of history. The 8 winners of round one are paired up for round two and the competition gets even tougher. Then it’s the final four and then, dun dun duuuuun, the main event to determine the all time MOCoff Champion!








The opponents for each match will be completely random (and if you’re one of the contestants you’ll get an e-mail from me describing exactly how this is to be accomplished). The categories that you’ll be building in are also random (once again, check the e-mail for how).

The competition will be judged by a panel of three celebrity judges. Not saying who they are just yet, that would spoil the surprise but the judges know who they are.








For the contestants:

There is a 14 day time limit from the time the round begins to post your creation. If you are late, you forfeit. If you’re early and you can coordinate with your opponent to post on the same day, then you BOTH can post early. YOU MUST CONFIRM THIS WITH YOUR OPPONENT!

(This one I’ll get flak for…) NO BRICKLINK! This is done so the builders who don’t get their allowance in time (like me) have a fair shot. You MUST build with what you have on hand. I can’t really control this one so you’re on the honor system here.

NO PHOTOSHOP! We’re judging these on builds and (in some cases) story. If you wanna clean up the background so we don’t see that hamper with the dirty underwear hanging over the edge behind the MOC, not a problem. Caption bubbles are cool too, but other than that…






There’s a few of you who are already signed up and ready for action. If you’re “in” already you DO NOT need to sign up here (unless you wanna drop some smack and make some HALOkiddie wet himself of course).

Interested? Curious? Scared??? Sign up and throw down in the Battle of Champions! There’s a limited number of spots open so don’t delay, do it now! NOW I SAID!

The battle will begin once I have all the players set and the first round assigned and ready to go. We’re looking at the beginning of September (not the 1st mind you, just around the first week or so)





A special “Thank you” goes out to Dave Shaddix who is helping me organize this and will be doing some of the behind the scenes work with me. Thanks Dave, I couldn’t pull this off without you.

Looking forward to meeting some of you on the field of combat. Now, go Block yourself! ~ Chris.

Hey Chris - I just wanted to publicly congratulate you on laying down hundreds upon hundreds of tiles on a perfectly flat baseplate, then almost one year later, receiving MOTD for it. Now you're just as good and just as valid of a builder as every kiddo out there who has ever put a Sharpie to a LEGO. Great work dude, it was well earned! ~dave

Quoting A&B Otters 83. Any chance of a 2009 MocOlympics happening soon?
If enough people requested it, I could start one up pretty soon. I'm not sure about how soon though, depends on how many people want to get in on it. And I'm not sure if I would compete this time around, being as my moc time has been cut drastically these past few months. Since Christmas, I've only had a total of about 6 hours build time. That's not an exageration... 6 hours, maybe 7 if I pushed it. Maybe I'll add a thread to the 09 Mocie awards group and see who's interested...

After the contest whatever you want to do with them is all yours. Just remember it's mocs only. No videos please. CEO Wraith: No there are no LDD categories. This contest is about REAL legos. Axxen Fett: ...Who cares if you win or not? It's all about the game! I know I don't have any chance of winning but I'm the one putting this on! Just sign up will ya?!? Young: You have no idea... I already started. Ocean: You can NEVER have too many tiles. Ask Heather how smooth I like it. (and speaking of Heather) Heather: I don't really wanna know where your finger has been...

Alright everyone, here's what I got so far. There are 26 of you signed up (remember, there were some spots filled BEFORE I opened it up to everyone). As it stands, I don't have 26 open slots but I would like ALL of you to be able to compete. If I can get 6 more people to sign up then everyone who signed up below THIS comment is in! (plus the 6 extras of course). I need to be able to pair people up and have an even number of pairs to work down to the final 2. If I don't get the 6 that I need, a few of you will be asked to be alternates in case we run into any issues. So tell your friends, come sign up and let's get rolling! Get your blocks off (Better Nick?)! ~Chris.
