Hi Joshua, It's me, TheHobbit98 from the LOTR GALLERY. You wanted to ask me build something, so I decided to make a private group that we can talk in. Please let me know what you want me to build. Thanks!

Great idea! I will certainly build it. It probably won't be done for 2 or 3 weeks because I'll need to buy some pieces first. Thanks for the Recommendation! Oh, would you mind if I invited Alex Rode into our group? You might know him as alex-alex on the gallery.

The more people we know the better, oh and where do you buy your pieces? I'm always stuck with the same one's and I have to build and break again and again...

For pieces, I do the same thing as you. I don't have much money, and so I can't afford to buy that much Lego. When I do, I usually get it of Pick-A-Brick. Just google it.

Sure! I've been meaning to add a picture, I just haven't got around to it. Here is a tip. If you would like to find the group fast, go to your Homepage and click the tap "Groups" under your name. It should show up...

So simply keeping Rivendell up is getting boring. Any suggestions on what I should build? It doesn't have to be LotR, but anything that's cool and has a lot of white in it.

Hey Alex, You are now a Group Admin. I'm also thinking of changing the name of the group. Any ideas? For building, I would just google pics of something. That's what I usually do. If I like something, I try to build it. I'll try to think of something.....Umm....How about the Citadel of Minas Tirith? It's totally white except for the roof. Or you could build a Condo Complex.

Oh man . . . I feel so behind! Instead of building Lego, I've been playing basketball and running! I have to catch up. Maybe I'll continue on Groudon. Sadly, though, I think the head was the easiest part . . .

Don't worry, I feel the same way. I've been running and working a lot, so lego is kinda at a standstill. But that should change as soon as my Pick a Brick arrives. And yes, I will be posting some of my LotR MOCs.

Oh, for the body, I would suggest checking out some of the lego sets that have brick built animals. I'm not an animal builder myself, but one of my friends is and he says it helps a lot.

How about Rivendell? Or the Prancing Pony? Just so you know, I have to do a couple projects so building Lego is off my agenda right now. The Grey Havens might take a bit longer. Sorry 'bout that.

I'm entering, but you aren't allowed to start building until round 1 starts. It's best to build a MOC relevant to the categories too, rather than loosely related. The categories aren't usually specific themes, they tend to be things like song titles, elements, seasons, etc...

I'm planning to probably do some sort of large figure for one of the categories, sorta like Nick V's round 1 entry last year...

LOL! :D As for the tips, I would recommend building very "clever." Based on my observations, the judges tend to like MOCs that apply a lot of techniques and that give a nice twist to the category. Other than that, build well! Best of luck to you and everyone else in the MO. Wish me luck too, please. I'll need it! ;)
