My Lego Saga
About this creation
A sculpture of my Lego experience, then and now. Ok, I did mention on LAML radio I was gonna build this, I just got a little sidetracked with Post Apoc.. Anyway, it depicts how much my experience of Lego has changed pre and post Dark Age. Building this was a lot of fun! Hope you guys enjoy it. And what is your Lego Saga???






Here's me as a kid (note the HAIR!) enjoying Lego on my own, building many awsum 'rainbow warriors' :D The Lego you got was whatever the toystore had. That was it. There was an official Lego Company parts ordering service but spending hard-saved pocket money and waiting for weeks for a few parts, many of which weren't available in Australia, didn't appeal. No, Lego was at the store and the lego catalog was KING! Memorised it was!


Then the evil Dark Age, sent by Dr. Konformity, swallows me in it's maw...


Triumphantly I slay the nasty Dark Age and emerge (studying a SW droid head, just one of the MANY new and amazing pieces Lego manufactures now)...


...to find a strange and exciting new world of Lego on the internet, Lego forums, Lego radio and Cracklink!


Lets wander around some denizens of this bizarre new world:
Cracklink venders, beaming down ANY parts you require! Imagine that in 1985!!




Everyone, no matter their style, taste or skill, builds and shares their creations with other people all over the world, via the magic of the internet.






Even girls!!








Who'd've thought back then, that such a world awaited at the other end of that dark corridor?

once again, philosophy successfully meets MOC. I think the title "Other Shannon" isn't befitting one as brilliant. Or maybe other-other Shannon should be used on that other other guy...

I may do something like this, it's just....interesting. This is most AFOLs' and TFOLs' experiences as well, that's what's very impressive about it. My own, of course, would just be a straight hallway of nothing but Lego. =P

Lovely MOC. Brings back memories... I had given away all mi bricks when I was 15, I think to an orphanage, od maybe an hospial... It was near my 30s that I got back, but still in small... -sigh-

My Dark Ages were a little different. I didn't quite give up building, but I did become a closet builder. Thanks to the internet and sites like this, I'm back and proud to be building. Thanks for showing this great, thought provoking MOC. Well done.

Hey mate another great one for the mind from you :) Hm I remember the golden days me and 5 sets of Lego and hours after hours of best fun ever. Than came the time when it would be uncool to like bricks ...ow the sadness of the creative heart... :( And now again s..tload of below zero cool Legos... But even today in the illuminated time I can't order Lego sets and bricks online into this retarded country on the sunny side of the alps... D'OH!!!!!!!! ...was I too long?? :p

Very interesting idea for a sculpture. As for me, I've never experienced a Lego dark age yet.

I like how you managed to express so many different aspects of LEGO's online community in tiny 6X6 vignettes. My favorite part is probably the Cracklink (Aussie Bricklink?) vendors on their little flying saucers. Great job!

Heh…great build Shannon. Cracklink venders beaming down parts…that’s classic. And so true…what would we do without bricklink? I would have had to buy like 50 Avatar fire nation ships and B-wings…that’s what.

Mark, I'm sure something would have been parting in yours but I'm not sure it would have been clouds... Shan, This is amazing. You're representation of the dark ages that we can't see cause it's just too... *shudder* and then how the "internet" show s the entire world connected! Come my friends! Sit, watch and marvel at the wonder that is Ocean's mind (no one under 18 allowed... trust me on this) ~ Chris.

ZOMG ZOMG KID BUILDING BLACKTRON! Great creation. I have to say, it might be an interesting idea to somehow transform this into a Cyborg Racer. Just a thought. Good day

The Dark Ages..... Sounds ominous. Actually, like you, I only started building my best once I discovered there were hundreds of sites dedicated to the coloured bricks. But unlike you, I haven't hit a Dark Age yet, and I plan not to. Amazing sculpture - Callum

Hmmm... Very nice. Makes me want to make one! No evil dark ages tunnel, yet, and I still have all my hair to prove it! But, there was this point were what few briks I had were just left in a corner, to be ignored due to the magic of BIONICLE! That might be interesting to portray...

You know, the funny thing is, when I first found MOCpages, I was on a very small building catagory. I thought it was this stupid tiny site and I was really upset.

Dude, you're not sayin' the internet is made up of tubes, are ya? Just honkin' your horn. Fun. Everybody's got a story. At least, that's what I hear. I didn't get into bricks until the early 80's when I was just about 30. I had a baggie full that I found at a garage sale in Winnipeg when I was about 19 but I gave them away when I moved to the USA. Stopped in the 90's and just collected for years. Harry Potter got me interested in building dioramas again. The nice thing about building them with bricks is the lack of painting and gluing. Mostly. I like the little pieces very much. Especially the little white and pink castle. garth

Nice, it's a great depiction and the dark-age tunnle is great! I got my first Legos when I was like three, kept buying and bilding till I was about 6 or 7, then stopped untill I was about twelve. Then began what you see now, I discovered MOCpages a year or so later and tada! you have what you see today!

Same story here! mocpages and every similar lego online community brought me back to life! Although, unlike most people, I never had a dark age...just a slow buildng period. Nice idea for a MOC! I love it! 5/5

I think my version would have the clouds parting, light shining down, and a playlist link featuring the Halelujah Chorus...oh, and devils horns on those Cracklink dealers! Fun build Shannon!

Excellent, where do you get all your cool ideas ?! Perhaps we can buy anything now on Cracklink, but not a creative mind like yours !

I wouldn't have thought about the vast LEGO world either, had I not typed "LEGO Halo" on Google several months ago. What was I thinking? And to discover that even GIRLS like LEGO too! Perhaps picking up chicks isn't so difficult after all! Heh. Love the sculpture, man. ~Nick
