Last year I was browsing Brickshelf and I ran into a picture of 8662... still in its bag. (I can't remember the link.) At first I thought it was a trick, but after thinking about it I, using my superior intellect, decided it was possible. I saw one in a store soon after and decided to give it a go.

Has anyone else tried this with different sets?

Yep, took about ten minutes, but the result is quite a sight.

Cool! It took me about the same. I thought it would be a lot harder.

I tried it as well.
But not until I saw Aredhel (Dana) do this trick in Windsor at the EB Event 06.
We where all pretty amazed at that time.
We then start to talk of doing that with bigger sets... like the ISD  :-D  :-P

Thats a cool idea.  I got excited at first cause I realised I had never opened the bags containing the car parts on my Moc'ed 4954 creator houses.

Upon further inspection I was dissapointed to find that not all the parts for the car were in the bag, just the Blue and dark grey pieces. Luckily the wheels and windscreen were there though so I thought.....



MOC in a Bag.

It took maybe 30 or 40 minutes, but I've managed to use every piece in the bag. The hardest part was when I wanted to change something and needed to separate pieces. especially if it was 2 1x2 plates stuck on top of each other or something.
I gotta say though, this was one of the most satisfying things I've ever built, and was a great challenge.

Now I gotta find more sets that are contained in a single bag. Perhaps some of the mini Technic sets like the tractor or Skid Steer Loader.

That is excellent for a MOC-in-a-bag. I think you have created your own genre!

Megablocks you Sinner! Megablocks you! And I don't mean megablocks I mean eff-you-see-kay megablocks!

I saw your damn thread and read it and thought "That's the dumbest thing I've ever seen! Who would want to build a set in a bag? Why would someone be so dumb?"

And I laughed and I surfed away from your silly post, but then the word challenge kept ringing in my head and I said "But I don't have any racers around."

Then I saw it...a turkey in a polybag, unopened and normally therefore unassembled. So I picked it up and thought "How would you get two pieces together?"

So, I tried it and it was aggravatingly difficult for me. I thought again "This is stupid! Who would want to do this?"

Then an image of your stupid walrus head starting floating around my head saying "challenge...challenge...challenge" and I said "I'll show him!"

Really, I have a lot in common with a bull that way. Thank you testosterone for making me such an idiot.

Anyway, 10 minutes? pfff...that's nothing. It took me 25! Oh, is less time better? Well, this about drove me to drink, all those little plates, my big clunky fingers and there was a plastic bag in the way! Not to mention the instructions were still in the bag and kept getting in the way...and all the while that stupid walrus head floating around taunting me  *sing* !

So, without further ado, here's my turkey in a bag!

Posted Image

If you were here, Sinner, I'd shove it in your face! But since you're not:

Posted Image
Megablocks you female canine!

(See? This is why my friends beat on me...I'm short and I'm this much of an aggressive smartass in real life...)

Ha ha! I've bested your silly challenge! What else you got? Bring it on...

What a strange thing to do. Oh well. The small creator packs should only be with one set in them as well. Or so I thought. It is only the green one you can bag-build:

Posted Image

Being creator sets. Why not build the secondary model as well... in the same bag:

It was getting late... so I built the third model as well:

Ice cube trays? I have tasted the chocolates that one of our LEGO friends make, and they were actually quite good, so the trays are not completely useless.

I'm not a show-off. Gylman is  :-P  
I hope the Millennium Falcon will come in a single bag. On a second thought...

Still want to try it, but in general I forget to do it, before I tear open the bag  8-|
It's just a shame that this can't be done with bigger sets though.

Did you do this when it first come out or just recently.

Thanks guys for either giving it a go or showing one you did earlier. I think the Airtech Claw Rig wins.

Now i've got this out of my system I think I will open it now.  :-$

Do you think it's more difficult to do this with a polybag like I did with the turkey than it is for sucky Sinner to do it with the air hole plastic bag from the racer set? Seriously, I'm better, right? I take challenges very seriously- :-P

:-D  :-D  :-D I'm never opening mine. It will forever stand as a symbol of my emotional triumph over this challenge.

Turkey in a bag on...

...and don't forget to mention that I had to deal with the instructions getting in the way, I couldn't read the instructions because they were in the bag and half of the bag is printed on! And also mention that Sinner is stupid!  :-P
