Shameless LEGO MOC photo thief of the day


Today's report comes with some sad news and with some great news.  What's sad is that bedeimre from Belgium hasn't been tought that stealing is wrong.  He decided to take my photo of Blanko 1.9 and post it to the official Lego Hero Factory gallery as if it was his own creation.  Perhaps it's literally just a problem of education?  Perhaps these kids aren't criminals at heart, they just don't know better?  Spread the word on any Lego-related forums or communities you participate in.  If you blog, blog this.  Stealing is wrong.  Mm-kay?

Now for the good stuff.  Remember robo-G from my first shameless thieves post?  He's gone.  Well, at least all of his photos are gone.  It seems that while one person's report of a theft isn't enough to get Lego's attention, if enough people make a noise, the big company will hear.  Thus I extend a heartfelt thank you to all of you readers who contacted Lego to report robo-G's theft.  I truly appreciate not only your support, but the fact that you, too, believe that theft is not only wrong, but completely unacceptable, no matter who it affects.  Take a bow.  I salute you all!

  8. Jang, if this makes you feel any better about your mocs being stolen, I must say that when I saw this blog, I decided to make my own, and I thank you for the inspiration.

  12. Hey guys, just to make everyone feel better, I must say that the HeroRecon emails accept replies! I got mine back today with a list of arrivals. They were shipped on the 26, and should arrive within 3-10 days, but the majority maximum time for the more populous states is 3, 5, 6, or 7 days. The secret thing must be big because LEGO refused to tell me.

  16. Wow!
    LEGO took me as a joke.
    I emailed them 2 times, same time it said:
    Sorry for the inconvenience, etc.
    you have to be 13 for them to take you seriously.
    I AM 12!

  17. Usually, this is a sign of envy.
    I believe that the people who copy and post other peoples' MOCs either do not know any better, were persuaded to do so, think that Jang will be better than them no matter what, or they just cannot build anything due to lack of pieces. Also, I noticed that some morons got away with posting the preliminary images of the 3.0s! Here is the list of issues:
    3.0 preliminary images,
    Certavus, a Bionicle never sold,
    another person's MOC.
    The least they could do is post as an anonymous:
    "I am (username)"

  18. For everyone claiming Lego takes anyone under 13 as a "joke," this is absolutely not the case.

    There is a federal law in the United States that expressly prohibits companies from collecting the contact information (including email address) of anyone under the age of 13 without written (on paper, not on the computer) permission of a parent or guardian. Since they cannot get your email, they cannot respond, and since they can't respond, they don't allow you to ask questions in the first place.

  19. True...
    I know, but I am ALMOST 13...

  20. GOOD NEWS!
    I got my hero recon team agent today! It was pretty cool, and everything is great! The secret item is that fire thing that is on Nitroblast, you know the spikes...

    ReplyDelete
  21. Again, I wish I had a picture of it, it is not much, but it is the red and yellow fire thing.

    ReplyDelete
  22. they take you as a joke if your under 13 you say? I got a reply and i'm only 10!

  24. I hope mymattone1 has the same bad luck as the other theft that happened and gets deleted I also hope that people stop stealing others work to make themselves look like the next LEGOJANG I think that if they want to look good they need to look good by them self NO STEALING from him..


    remember the golden rule of the bible ' do unto others as you would have them do unto you'

    Have a good time Jang

  28. I was looking around on google images, when i stumbled upon a strange website. as i was looking through it, i found pictures of yours. Strange, huh? I think the guy just found random MOCs on the internet and put them on a website. and i think the guy speaks another language, because i can't make out a word he's saying.

  39. hey guys i have tw o sides to this one yea they are aealing but look if they are stealing jang's that means his are REALLY good, good enough to be stolen :). the other is that at lest we know lego is taking action agents these shameless people who have no life and no talant, the most i have ever done to steal someone elses creation is copy the moc in my house where NO ONE will ever see and after that and looking at other peoples creations i change it.
