Welcome to the Lego Technological Development Systems Inc.!!!!
As of Oct of 2008 I declare the below information to be outadated, irrelevant and 100% nerdy. I do not intend to build anymore, as I have other matters to take care of. This was a fun little fad while it lasted, I've merely just outgrown it.
Haha, and as of May 30th, 2012, I come back here and laugh at how cool I must have thought I was for dropping this.
For all intents and purposes, I'm still a huge nerd, and now I can look back on this in appreciation and smile. :)
Who knows, I might even build something new, for old time's sake.
For those who still visit this page, or ever come across any of my creations, thank you, and as always:
The L.T.D.S. is more than an "Inventors' Guild" if you may. Our number one goal is to show all of MOCpages that you CAN build great creations with just a box of bricks and an imagination! A way to let the lower rated builders with innovative ideas make an impact on MOCpages as much as the pros do!
Here's a bit about myself: I started building when I was about four. My first set was one of the old Scuba Diver type sets. I spend most of my time trying to build new and different Lego items using very limited pieces. I have never used any kind of motor or battery powered type thing; everything is either crank-powered or rubberband powered. My Lego building method has always been "Make due with what you have" and I want to let MOCpages know that it IS possible. I hope to be among MOCpages' building elite!
I think the biggest thing that sets me apart from builders is that I get most of my inspirations from outside sources, especially ancient Greek inventions as well as innovation, our biggest ally.
Now a few random tidbits about myself you'll probably forget after reading this:
Blood Type: A+
Interests: Building Lego (OMG, REALLY!?!), Fencing (I'm actually at the national level!), Listening to music (I prefer rock and classical), Blogging on Facebook, Collecting expensive...um...collectibles, Playing Guitar, Reading phonebook sized novels and classical literature, traveling to far-off places.
Fave Builders: Umm...actually there are no favorite builders. You see, here at LTDS, we like to keep things fair in the belief that all MOCcers are equally talented. So yes, I do have favorite builders: everyone who posts on here!
Now a little bit about what Lego things I've accomplished over the years: As one of the leading authorities in new technologies such as rubberband powered weapons and gear powered machines; I have been a major researcher in complex movement systems and Lego brick ballistics! I've built many sorts of advanced models and have taken Legos beyond the call of just a model or a toy! I've built, bows, crossbows, cannons, rubber band guns, shotguns, conveyor belts, aircraft carrier launch systems and even Roman catapults!! All of these will be presented soon enough in my "new technologies folder". More recently I've not only built the things listed above, but I have also created an amazing array of other Lego-type things.
So then, our creations may be modest, but I hope everyone can benefit from and enjoy our models just as much as I do!!! And I know that our group may seem small, and our cause may not be fully recognized, but I believe that this site will be a way to show the whole of MOCpages the people who have the ideas to revolutionize the way we build Legos! So, with that said, enjoy, take a look around, and I hope what we build can inspire YOU to build!!
As one at the forefront of development of new and exciting Lego technologies, it has come to my attention that I cannot do this alone. Thus, I ask anyone who is also a Lego researcher like myself who would like to share any ideas with me and vice-versa.
You don't have worry about you're discovery being used unfairly either. I am strictly against using other people's designs for my own benefit. I believe credit should be given where it is due. All members of the L.T.D.S. MUST let the others know that they will be attempting to copy and/or improve on one's original concept. Anyone who disobeys this will be removed from the group. Now, I bet you're wondering :Who can join this and how can I join?".
This faction is open to anybody who enjoys the research and development of Legos! Just post a review on any of my creations and I'll check out you're page as soon as I can. If I see that you indeed have something to show the world, you will be gladly accepted!! I hope that by having many members we could make a larger impact on MOCpages in the form of new technologies!!
I must let everyone know, though. I try to be as fair as possible with applicants, but you need to know that I can't let ANYONE join. You absolutely MUST have a Lego creation/idea/buildings style that is:
A: Different or new
C: Something everybody can even slightly benefit from
*Your creation does NOT have to be five stars*
So please, check over you're creations before applying, and thank you for your cooperation!
I hope to get many members soon so please check it out!
Thanks for taking some time out of your day to have a look!! I really appreciate it! (And sorry you had to deal with my extensive transitioning from "I" to "We" :P)
