So I was thinking of reorganizing my Brickshelf folder when I found myself thinking about how I always seem to want to revisit a MOC and retool it.  

I thought I would share my own "MOC Evolutions" and then encourage anyone else who had a MOC go from one thing to a totally revamped and much better version to share here as well!

The Covenant

Posted Image

The Sienna

Posted Image

The Arbiter II

On a couple of ships you can see it took a revolution before there was any evolution... but even the difference between the second and final design of the Covenant and the Arbiter II is quite striking!

Does any one else have any MOC evolutions to share?

Nice thread  *y*

I do have one example of an MOC-evolution to show you, but I often find myself changing and modifying the things I create.

I made a motorcycle once, and later modified it, using the same chassis, to make a completely different police design.

As always, your creations are phenomenal. I wish I had that many bricks! :-D

I've initiated some evolution myself as well.

Very nice.  From the first thumbs they didn't look all that similar, but once I clicked them and took a look, they were definitely similar with the exceptions of the colors and the upgrades!

My favourite "evolved" MOC is the HMS Progress, I even left pictures of the previous versions in the brickshelf gallery.

First version (sorry, I didn't have a good camera back then):

Well, Fort Victoria was re-done in a massive re-vitalization process iniated by King George XIIZ of LegoLand.

The original, weaker sea-side fortifactation (The old Sabre is there to, which was also revamped, but never got pictures taken. This ship is currently in planning to be rebuilt.):
Posted Image
The revamped, much stronger fortress:
Posted Image
The newer fortress, witch features Eldorado Fortress fastened in the middle as a keep, needs pictures taken but is nearly the same as the revamped version.
Sorry for the huge pictures. I'll resize them later.

EDIT Mr Tiber: Resized the pictures for you.

Just returned from a 3 or so year dark age, so just getting back into the swing of things. :)

All very impressive modifications to those fine models! The great thing about our beloved toy: you can make something new everyday and keep modifying it until it's perfect.

After buying the new city police-motorcycle (to stick with motorcycles right now..) I made a timeline of policebikes through the years.

From the seventies upto now, behold:

I think Fortress revamps often show the biggest changes.  That is quite a nice upgrade!

Does "Finish" imply that you have started?  ;-)

There are a couple of things started in MLCAD and i've just ordered 60 dark blue torsos to make my marines and officers.
So i guess that would be a yes X-D

Excellent... though I think you will need hundred of plates for such a build!  Keep us updated!

Too bad I never got round to building the second version of the Imperial Sentry Box so I could post both versions in this thread.

But here's one I did build both version of...

My old camera was horrible!  The new version isn't much of an improvement though.

Very Nice indeed!

Any progress on that MOC?

Those are some remarkeble evolutions I must say. When my La Formidable is finished I'll post some "evolutions" as well. :pir-blush:
