I have to ask, what is your favorite moc you have made (assembled or disassembled), and which took longest to build?

Hmmm that's a hard question. I guess my goto answer for which MOC is my favorite is Matteo Bionicle MOC: Matteo by 3rdeye88
 I've spent a lot of time on him and methodically planned out pretty much everything on him. He's also my most well developed character.

As for which MOC took the longest. That's impossible for me to answer because it's not like I sit down with a stop watch or anything like that. I just work on them over periods of time. Sometimes they go up on the shelf and collect dust for a year before I pull em back off and work on them again. Bionicle MOC: Crixus V.2 by 3rdeye88   I had the original form of this guy for years and years before I decided to update him to this. My oldest MOC is Ryakk though. Bionicle MOC: Ryakk by 3rdeye88   I've had him since 2004. The way I MOC, they're always Works In Progress to a point since I keep most of them together. Even when I take a MOC apart I do it with the plan or intentions to rebuild it at a later date.

Wow, I can see why your Matteo moc is your favorite, he is very well thought through, and other then your other 2, the only plague doctor moc I have seen. Also I can say, it does not surprise me that 2 of your Titan sized mocs are your oldest/most worked on, they seem like they have much detail in them.
As far as your ryakk moc goes, I have looked at it (don't remember if i commented) and he looks as if you have worked on him more then a few times (obviously) and I simply can't believe that it is about 11 years old (11 since this year is almost over). Judging from the pics of him, he is huge, but how large is he measured out?

Where do you get all your money to find and buy all of the necessary lego pieces to create these yourself?

A large portion of my collection is older. I doubled up on most bionicle sets from 2004-06. And up until 2007 lego was pretty much all I'd spend my allowance on. It was also all I'd ask for christmas and birthdays. Family knew that lego was always a safe bet for me as a gift. Ummm I had also been getting lego since I was 2, and I'm 24 now. So I had a lot of lego even before bionicle came out. Now, I get a little bit of money here and there from doing chores around the house. Most AFOL MOCers have jobs and commit to buying lego, but the economy hasn't been so kind to me. We also use [link] this site, bricklink to great advantage. Its a good way to get what we need in the right colors and quantities for often times about what sets that give us less of what we need cost.

What you're seeing wasn't done overnight or even fairly recently, I've been at this a long time, and I just never gave it up as I got older. Lots of AFOLs seem to give it up and come back to it, but I never had a "dark age" period. Lego has always been there for me.

O3o.....Now that's what I call Hard Labor :salute:

How do you figure on what you're gonna create without the need of instructions such as Blue Prints, or them Lego Manual books?
