Delays, delays, delays …

Just when I’m on a roll, I’ve hit a few snags. I’ll be adjusting the release date of Episode 4 and post again when I have all the bugs worked out. The major issue is my computer. I am currently tapping on a friend’s keyboard and hope to have the issue resolved soon. Please hang in there with me!

Episode 3: Playability

Happy New Year! Welcome back to the MOC cast! I hope your holidays were as fun and productive as mine. I had only one or two days of no LEGO building, but I definitely got my fill, along with a few new sets to stoke the creative fires. Many MOCs were considered, built, reconsidered, demolished, and built again.

Speaking of building, we’re building a bit of a library of podcasts. Episode 3 is up, where we take a look at the playability of our MOCs, discuss some creative ways to find more time to build, and talk to Tom Remy, a LEGO Artist from France who talks to us about the creative challenges LEGO bricks allow us to overcome.

Happy Holidays from the MOC cast

Happy Holidays from the MOC cast!

A heartfelt and sincere season’s greetings to everyone in the LEGO universe (especially those who have taken the time to download an episode or two, and that goes double for anyone who has let a fellow LEGO fan know about it)!

The holidays are also a great time to catch up with your unfinished LEGO MOCs, so if you need inspiration, why not have a browse of some of the resources associated with each episode. They’re a great jumping off point for your creative endeavours.

If you’d like to create your own holiday message, head over to LEGO.com!

You’ll hear from me again on January 6, 2015. Until then, happy holidays, thank you, and keep building.

Epic Rap Battles of History: Thor vs Zeus in LEGO

I don’t usually post about things like this, but wow, this got my attention and deserves to be shared. The usual wit and lyricism is on display, but the LEGO twist really takes it up a notch.

Warning: NSFW Language

We are now officially on Stitcher.com

In an effort to spread the word far and wide, I’m looking at different podcast hosts, aggregators and feeds to figure out the optimal mix. Stitcher.com has recently confirmed, and I’m hoping to get the iTunes store up and running before the next episode. In the meantime, go on to Stitcher.com and rate or comment on the show!

Thanks, and keep building.

Episode 1: Structural Integrity

Here it is. The long awaited launch of the MOC cast ever since I announced it about a month ago.

Structural integrity is about the safe design and assessment of components and structures under load, and is an important consideration in real world engineering design. In the first MOC cast, I’ll take a look at what you can do to ruggedize your MOCs, describe some awesome examples, chat with renowned MOC artist Jordan R Schwartz, and more!

This is truly a labour of love, so please be gentle, but I do want to hear all the constructive criticism that is so prevalent on the internet these days. So, use any and all the feedback tools on this site, including email, comments, likes, tweets, share it with your network, and so on.

Above all, enjoy.
