#15 – My favorite LEGO MOC, by Guy Gabizon – Israel

For those of you that don’t know what is a LEGO MOC, it stands for My Own Creation.

Normally you can buy LEGO sets in a box with instructions. A MOC is something that a fan like  me designs and then publishes the instructions for other LEGO Fans to build, on sites like Rebrickable

I love designing and sharing MOC’s with the world. I design them because I can really use my creativity and build something out of my own imagination. And I have built already more than 500 of them!

My favorite one is the Dessert Village one. I built it from 12 different MOC’s, with 3957 pieces. It took me more than one month to build but at the end I was really happy with it. 

If you want to see more of my creations, you can check my website – https://htbi-moc.com/. I love to see when a fellow fan builds one of my MOC’s – and I am looking forward to myself building creations from others!

#11 – My LEGO plane bought on… a plane, by Benny B – New Jersey

Bet you didn’t know Lego was available for purchase on flights a long time ago.

My family took a plane ride on one particular vacation. However, back in 1988 there was no in-flight entertainment.  So how did my mother calm her increasingly annoying bored child?

She bought me my first Lego set ever to keep me occupied.

Colors have faded & lost pieces replaced along the way, but the spirit remains.

#5 – Bringing Minnie and Mickey home, by António Marques Mendes – Lisbon

Today they are in the front line of my display case. The most amazing Minifigures.

But it wasn’t always like that.

The setting: the always crowded Lego shop in Leicester Square. 

The hero: me, of course. I was positively groping all the minifigure bags in the shop, although the sign was quite clear – DO NOT to touch anything. But I was determined to find Minnie and Mickey.

The villain: The security guard. He saw me and tried to kick me out but the store manager looked at me and laughed at my technique… and lack of shame. 

The ending: I was completely embarrassed, but I found them, purchased them and  brought Minnie and Mickey home…where they belonged.
