Event 2006 - Group MOC
Posted 17 March 2006 - 06:27 PM
I know it's not much time left, but nonetheless it is still possible to have a group MOC project!
Every participant (hopefully all of you!) is asked to build on a 16x16 baseplate something that is related to YOUR country (most probably in Micro-scale)!
Examples for Micro-scale: LEGO Factory sets at Brickset.com.
The scale itself is not as important, as long as your creation fits on the baseplate everything is fine! This means also if the thing you try to build is small enough to be in Minifig scale and it still fits on the baseplate it's also just fine!
A 16x16 creation should fit in every bag, so even those who are coming by planes should be able to transport one module! And since it is not that large it won't take too much time to build, so everybody still should have the time to throw something together!!!
Here you can see the basic structure of the baseplate you can use:
The green bricks can be replaced, but the borders (one row of 1 wide grey plates (no matter if new or old grey) and one row of 1 wide grey tiles above the plates) must be kept! They are the pavements which should look similar at all modules!
Examples for module ideas:
There are several possibilities, including
- important buildings
- some random buildings showing the building style of your country
- a typical landscape of your country (that sure is a challenge!)
- other things like a special car, maybe just the red british phone box,...)
... or whatever you can think of!
One quickly done example:
You're country has a famous hospital? Fine, show it to us!!!
The black street:
You don't have to care for them, most probably I will create those plates and bring them so that everything can be attached to a huge European diorama!!!
You might have noticed the Minifigs walking there (at the first image in this thread). When the real group MOC is put together the pavements will be the places for our Sigfigs, so - if you own one - bring them to the event so that our Lego-selves all can walk around our Group MOC!!!! ;-)
Probably I will create a background for this scene that will be put behind the back row of modules. What and How will be decided after I got the number of modules you will bring.
Will you bring something?
Hopefully yes, the more MOCs we will have the better the overall layout will look!
So please think about it and tell us if you want to bring a module!
If there are any further questions don't hesitate to ask them!

Could be difficult if your collection is light on grey tiles.
I think I only have enough tiles in black or maybe blue at a push....

Nice ideas here Apo! This should look great once fully constructed. If anyone is unable to finish anything in time we can always build something once we have been to the park and bought a few bricks!

If we have less than 6 modules the project will be cancelled!
Please tell me within this week if you participate!

i think that will happen this time as well. there are so many people coming to the event and we all have so many transactions to do that we'll have our hands full even without staring at mocs...
