Take a tour through this colaboration of celebratory vigs with the creator himself.
About this creation
Valais- Where is he? He’s over eight days late.
(A man on a Mongoose approaches)
“Greetings! My name is Eric Mickle and you are viewing my 1st MOCiversary presentation!
Valais- You’re anniversary was eight days ago!
“Yes, my first MOC was posted July 9th 2010, but I thought it was posted on the 17th. Nevertheless, we are celebrating it today.”
“If you compare my newer MOCs to my older ones, you’ll see that I have come far in just one year-“
Valais- -and eight days.
“Look after my car.”
“The first thing we shall examine today is the automatic-door design that I use often. The octagonal design is perfect for the inside of a ship, or any Sci-Fi universe.”
Sniper- Are you entering sir?
Sniper- It’s Jones!
“Sure it is.”
*Beep, Bloop, Sound Effects*
…to the data center.”
“Let’s see, google chrome, MOCpages.com, my homepage.”
“Ah, my stats. In one year I have acquired a grand total of 100987 views on my MOCs, 2363 total ‘likes’, 1916 total comments, and 172 people call me a favourite. This is as of 2:05 PM on Sunday July 17th, 2011.”
“Not bad for only one year, considering where I started.”
“The next vig in the compilation is to display every combat sig I have.”
“Whether it’s fighting Hollow Men in the Fable games, Fractum Terrum in Fractured Earth,…
…zombie hordes in CYOA, or the Covenant and Insurrectionist forces in Halo, I’m ready.”
“Now onto the vig I call “ODST Evolution”.”
“From left to right.”
“The chap in red is the first generation of ODSTs I built (but fortunately never posted). I had no black torso or helmet, so coloured variants were the best of the time.”
“The next Trooper is generation 2. I bought five black torsos, legs, and helmets from LEGO.com to make five ODSTs. Unfortunately LEGO made a bad move and doesn’t sell the back torsos on their site anymore.”
“Generation 3 was the first to be customized, but they still had an improper visor.”
“And finally Generation 4, customized even more and they have proper visors. Although some disagree with the colour variations, but they’re better than their (probably grey) ODSTs.”
“My best, completed, and most popular series is CYOA. While Caleb had started the interactive adventure series where you build a character, I was the first to designate it Choose Your Own Adventure.”
“To the next vig!”
“Is the flying machine ready Nigel?”
Nigel- I’m afraid not. It would be rather hazardous to use right now.
“I’m sure I can handle it.”
“One of my proudest accomplishments was the creation of the theme ‘Jericho’…
…and the large industrial power Fatius Industries. Be sure to check out their vast array of Products.
“That is a Base-Jumper. They jump off of tall ledges, spires, or building for the thrill. They are a sort of running gag in my theme.”
“A view of the super-complex structure.”
“Gyah. Forget this!”
“Perhaps Nigel was right.”
“Now onto the last vig, my favourite theme…
“This vig shows a UNSC Frigate being decimated by a Covenant plasma bombardment. Just like that cutscene at the end of Tip of the Spear.”
“You’re probably wondering- ‘this is a Halo MOC, but I don’t see a skull’- well we can find it using this here x-ray.”
“Bam, there it is.”
“I hope you enjoyed this little presentation. One year has passed, and the next has begun, I plan on making great things!”
“If you want to; please tell me which of these vignettes you liked best, and if you’re up for it: which of my MOCs you like best.”
“Rate and Comment if the mood strikes you, tatty-bye.”
Congrats! Your first Mociversary too? I had mine a month or so ago, surprising how much you can improve over a year. But as time ticks on we can only desire to become better, and better, and better. Oh how we set our sights on becoming that guy who got 5 comments, and when we make it there we set our sights even higher, and higher, and higher. There is no end to how much we can improve, and improve we will.

Happy MOCiversary(and 8 days!) You've improved a lot over one year, probably more than I will over 2 years. I think I heard some Red vs Blue reference(I'm sure Joanis will agree.:D) Honestly, The best vig in my opinion is the friate getting blown to h***, and the best creation is "Valley of the Shadow of Death". again, Happy MOCiversary(and 8 days)!

You accomplished a lot in one year (hey, I joined three days before you joined!), and this is a really good way to "celebrate" it. Well done, Eric. Your best MOCs so far (in my opinion, in a descending order) are "UNSC Salvatori", "Valley of the Shadow of Death", this one and "A Tribute to Bungie". Your Jericho vignette is my favourite vignette in this page. I think I might join Jericho, but I have a lot of things on my to-do list. Oh, and... Onwards!

Happy one year (and 8 days late) Anniversary!
I hope to see more from you in the futur.. I have to say that my favorite vig here is the Jericho vig.. And my favoite from you that you ever made would have to be Valley of The Shadow Of Death.. What is YOUR favorite one that you made?
Happy MOCiversary, Eric!! Your stuff has never ceased to amaze me, and what's even more stunning is that in just one year, you've gone so far. My favorite vignette would be the Jericho one. I always liked your clean blue color scheme that you used for the theme. As my favorite creation from you...I can't decide!! You've made so many great things. Some of your best would probably be your Pereguin, Team Foxtrot, your Tribute to Bungie, and pretty much all of your Jericho stuff. Keep it up!!
Very well done! You've made much more progress then I have. My MOCs are much more professional then they used to be, but I don't have nearly as many likes that you do. *high five* I forgot to do my MOCiversary...So, I might do one that's really late. Good job my friend. 5/5! ~Stay moving foreword
It has been, to put it plainly, an astounding year for you, and I hope to see more of your creations (*cough* MOAR HALO!!) through the next years. I see you have advanced quite a bit from your starting point, all the way up to the Salvatori and Valley of the Shadow of Death. Mine is in September I'll believe...hopefully I won't go 8 days late :) Great year, Eric!
