Mark Murphy's 2nd Mociversary . Suilad everyone! This day, April 18th 2013, marks my 2nd MOCiversary! This has been a wonderful year, and much has happened, I have met new friends, and lost some old ones, made new creations, and entered some contests. Enough of the talk though, why don't you see for yourselves: .
This was my 4th of July MOC last year.
My entry to the MOColympics, the category being: "Ring of Fire" I built this scene from Finding Nemo. I almost made it to round two, but not quite.
The Forbidden Pool. This was for a MOC off I did with Matthew Oh. I was lucky enough to win this one.
This was also a MOC off, the theme being Halloween. This time I faced David. It was never judged fully though.
I think we can all guess what this was for.
Come into Bag End.
This was my Christmas MOC.
I had fun with this one.
And now we come to my famous CYOA, The Adventures of Olympus. Season 3 finished this past year, these next few pictures are pieces of it.
This season ended, and season 4 started up.
These are just some of the characters who were in the beginning of this season.
We come to the main attraction! I worked long and hard on this MOC. I announced its existence in January, but no one has seen it til now...
THE LONELY MOUNTAIN!
Now, I was going to put caption all along the creation here, but I will let the pictures explain themselves. Here I am about to depict the Battle of the five armies from the Hobbit. Go to Chapter "The Clouds Burst" starting with "Come!" Called Gandalf. "There is yet time for council. Let Dain son of Nain come swiftly to us.!"
The rest is on your own. Enjoy!
I hope you all like it. This took me several months to build, it is solid, not hollow, and it weighs approximately 26 pounds!
This is the mountain compared with Talos. Talos is by far my Tallest creation, but the Lonely Mountain is my largest.
Now, I am not quite done, for there are many people to thank.
Unfortunately, I do not have time right now, (as anyone in Olympus will tell you) to make links to all these names, but I do ask that if you have not already, please go see their creations and meet them in groups.
Firstly, and foremost, I thank Michael Kringe. He is from Germany, and I have known him all of these two years. He is the head Admin of the Fellowship of the Brick, and is the nicest person I have ever met on MOCpages.
Aidan Moon. I know Aidan in real life, and he introduced me to MOCpages. He is a good companion and a great friend.
Ian Spacek. He has been a good friend for me in these two years. He directed the Middle-Earth Lego Olympics, and was kind enough to allow me to judge.
Calvin, and Reynolds Russ. These two, though they are not the most active on MOCpages, are still very nice people, and good friends, and are very dedicated followers of The Adventures of Olympus.
Boarder Ryan. (Whose name changes too often for me to type his current one here.) Relatively new to MOCpages, he is an AFOL friend of mine, who is a good member in the Fellowship of the brick, and also follows Olympus.
Annie Corder. Though she did recently stop making choices in Olympus, for a long time she was very dedicated and supportive of my CYOA.
Josh O. He loves Greek mythology, and is a good Christian friend here.
Jackson Williams. The only other friend I have on MOCpages who I have actually met. He has visited me a couple times, and is a wonderful friend to have.
Justin M. Also a good friend, he is another member of the Fellowship of the brick.
~Caleb~. One of the few friends who has been active for most of the time I have been here, he is a very dedicated builder and follower of Olympus.
These are just some of the many people I need to thank, but they are the most prominent of this year, also I thank these builders for being such good friends:
Obi wan Kenobi12
David the Jedi Fire Ninja
Jedi Master Altria Skyner
Thank you all from the bottom of my Heart!
Thank you for viewing this,
Soli Deo Gloria!
