I think it's about time I replied here... I've finally mustered up the courage. ;)

Screenname:
smcginnis

Real name:
Sam (Samuel) McGinnis

Age:
Born April 1991 (Not saying the exact date yet.) so 15 or 16 ;).

Location:
Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, CA, USA, North America, Earth, The Solar System, The Milky Way, The Local Group, The Local Supercluster, etc. to the Verse of Universes (of which I believe there are many.). Plus anything I forgot to mention in between.

Profession:
Student. Homeschooled since seventh grade.

My BrickShelf Account/Website:
http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/galle ... =smcginnis

Themes I Build In:
Castle so far. But I really want to start building some Space stuff.

First Castle Set:
I think this one: 2540

Favorite Castle Set:
I have so few that this isn't really fair... Probably any set from the 80's/very early 90's, especially 6086, 6085, 6059, and all of the Forestmen sets (I don't have any of the above, BTW).

Favorite MOC (at this time) of my own:
The amazing white castle I have in my mind... Oh, you mean posted creations? Uhhm... probably this; it looked much better in person.

Favorite MOC of someone else's:
Far, far too many to count; although Wairnie's Haidos Castle, anything by Itou, and Cai's Tower of Judgement are pretty high up there. There are a few others I can't remember the names of that are absolutely wonderful though.

Your favorite non-Castle theme:
Space, Adventurers, Alpha Team (which is a sort of cross between the former two), Bionicle, etc. Those are probably my favorite favorites, though.

If you were to be in the medieval ages, what would you profession be:
If I could choose it? Carpenter. Otherwise, I have no idea.

Do you own a copy of the legendary 3033?
Nope. Before this thread, I hadn't even heard of it.

Well, that's about it.

To my everlasting regret, it was not until the original KK2 (I can't remember which set) that I really discovered Castle.

Favorite Castle Set:
The King's Castle Seige :drools:

Favorite MOC of my own:
Dont have any online. ( I have GOT to get the camara working)

Favorite MOC of someone else's:
A close race between the Radiant Kestrel, the Castle Siege, and the King's Castle, the MOC that finally made me appreciate light bley.

Your favorite non-Castle theme:
Classic Space, Adventurers, and Star Wars. The new Mars Mission sets are looking pretty spiffy, too.

If you were to be in the medieval ages, what would you profession be:
Hmm. I had always fancied myself a chef, or perhaps a landscape artist. Are you kidding? Dark Lord is the only way to go. 8)

Do you own a copy of the legendary 3033?
Nope, nor do I see what makes it legendary (though an explanation would be pleasant).

Themes I build in:
Castle, Star Wars, Steampunk, Space, James Bond.

First Castle set:
I have... no clue.

Favorite Castle set:

Hmm, I really loved the whole series of modular castle walls, those were awesome. For a single set, I'd say I'm stuck between 6066 Camo'd Outpost and the famous Yellow Castle, which I only dislike because it's yellow.

Favorite MOC of my own:
Probably my "St. George and the Dragon" vignette.

Favorite MOC of someone else's:

Only one!? Hmm... at the moment, that might be ook22's LakeHold Castle. That thing is awesome!

Favorite non-Castle theme:
Space. No, Star Wars. No, Steampunk. No, James Bond. No, Star Wars. No, Space. No, James Bond. No, Steampunk...

Medieval profession:

Most likely? Norwegian Peasant, given my ancestry. Desired? Viking Noble. (Carl, Jarl, I can't pick) Or European, of course-mustn't be choosy!

Do you own a copy of the legendary 3033?
Sadly, no. :cry:

Realname:
Chris Smith

Age:
21 (Feb '86)

City/State:
Brockway, Pennsylvania, USA

Profession:
Currently a Lifeguard at the local YMCA, but working on an Associates Degree in Information Sciences and Technology.

My BrickShelf Account/Website:
See my sig.

Themes I Build In:
Pretty much all castle, but some video game themed stuff thrown in as well.

First Castle Set:
6018, Battle Dragon. My older brother had some of the large Black Knight sets, so I wanted to get some castle sets, too.

Favorite Castle Set:
This is a tough call. Probably 6079, Dark Forest Fortress, because it was my first large scale castle set, even though my brother gave me his old stuff, which included a full Wolfpack line, nearly all the Black Knight sets, and a few other misc castle sets.

Favorite MOC (at this time) of my own:
Either the Black Falcon airship in this folder (that was about 6-7 years ago, and has long since be demolished :() or my Shin-Ra Helicopter from Final Fantasy VII, also demolished.

Favorite MOC of someone else's:
Far too many to even begin picking a favorite. I see so many amazing pieces of art, sorry, MOCs, on this forum alone.

Your favorite non-Castle theme:
A tie between Pirates and Star Wars.

If you were to be in the medieval ages, what would you profession be:
According to a D&D personality test, I'd be a Dwarven Bard. Minus the Dwarven bit, is not too far of a stretch, I think.

Do you own a copy of the legendary 3033?
Nah, that came out during a mini dark age mostly brought on by Town Jr. and no good Castle or Pirate sets.
Peeron contributions: 577 (Viking Chess), 7009, 7654, 7655, 7695, 7771, 8813, 8821, and 8822.
