I just want to complain about something: people using the abbreviation MOC. MOC stands for My Original Creation and comes from the original Lego website which was around in about 1995, I think. It makes sense, I guess, for Lego to separate out people's original creations on their website. But why in the world would anyone else use that term? You took a picture of it and put it up on the web. If it's not your original creation, why would you do that? So people could see you built one of the kits? And even then, if they're enough of a Lego fan to know what MOC means, they're also fan enough to recognize the official kits. So no one is going to be illuminated by your use of the term MOC. All it does is signal that you are part of the community enough to know the slang.
