Favorite MOC of someone else's:
Anything from Jojo and Takeshi Itou. Bob Carney has nice stuff too ;)

Your favorite non-Castle theme:
Town. Sometimes I want to build modern things. It's nice to build daily life things in Lego.

If you were to be in the medieval ages, what would your profession be:
I would want to be a musician, but I'm afraid I would be a witch. Or a nun if I wasn't courageous enough to express my real me.

Do you own a copy of the legendary 3033?
yes, 2 of them.

Todd

Age: 20 (Sept. of '83)

Grand Rapids, MI

Currently work in Blood Center lab, Studying to be a missionary.

No website right now.

I build in Castle, Pirates (I love Steve Jackson's Game), Space, and Adventures. Castle is my favorite though.

My first castle set was the Forsest Men's Hideout.

My favorite MOC of my own is a 3 foot tall version of Hogwart's that I made in the span of a week and a half over the summer.

My favorite MOC of someone else's is Ed Boxer's Lego Castle.

My favorite non-castle theme is pirates.

If I lived in the middle ages I would've been the captian of a mercenary company...or dead.

Yeah, I own 3033, but it wasn't that special...
Don't make me angry... I'm running out of places to hide the bodies.
