Shameless LEGO MOC photo thieves of the world



Today I received yet another note from a YouTube member pointing out despicable low-life scum who steal my photos and upload them to the official LEGO Hero Factory gallery as their own.

The latest immoral filth goes by the username robo-G on Lego's site, allegedly a 16-year-old Singapore resident.  robo-G downloaded a picture of my MOCs Kalek 2.0 & QUADRO from right here on my blog, uploaded it to the official Hero Factory gallery, and guess what?  My photo, that robo-G stole, is currently the highest-voted image in the gallery! 

He didn't stop at one theft, though, no.  He also stole a photo of my very popular Specter 2.0 MOC, and uploaded it as "my spactor," in his words.  That photo of mine, which thankfully included a watermark with the web address to this blog (something I evidently need to do constantly thanks to filth like robo-G), is currently the 10th highest voted photo.

It gets better!  Scrolling further through the most voted creations, we find what?  That exact same Specter 2.0 photo of mine, uploaded by yet another epic parenting failure, magge7 of Sweden.

bobbyjoe116 of the United States takes credit for one of my photos of Alba 2.0.

The moral of the story?  Steal & plagiarize, and not only are you shaming yourself and your family, but you're setting yourself up for a nice very permanent, and very public humiliation.

Kids, don't steal.

Don't.

It's wrong...

...and you will lose.

  1. Aw maaaan! I must say it's SAD. But anyways, anyone in this world knows you made this MOCs, cause you're awesome, man!!! You're the best MOCer ever, so, don't be sad, or angry, be happy. It's because they love your MOCs, they are just... noobs.

  3. Ugh. What a disgrace. Maybe we should tell LEGO about this?

  4. I think this is your best post so far.

  5. I totally agree. These scum-bags need to know that taking someone's work and calling it their own is bad, and plus, it's illegal.

  6. Mr. LEGOJANG,

    Hello. I am Preston Stormer. You should know me from my heroic defeat of Von Nebula. I am sincerely sorry to find out that your work has been copied by these villains.

    The rookies and I are trying to find these low-life, parenting failures of villains. We'll catch 'em soon.

  8. Someone once said, "Good artists copy, great artists steal." I fail to believe them.

  9. Hello, Preston. You may have destroyed Von Nebula,
    but I would like to see you stop ME!!! Hahahahaha!!! Yes,
    I am so despicably evil that I will plagiarize EVERY MOC IN THE WORLD!!!!!

    (I did not actually copy your pics JANG. Keep up the awesome work!)

  10. Call Hero Factory to send Furno in and teach them a lesson about plagiarizing and why its wrong. I'm just joking but I understand that this is a serious matter and their is no real pride in copying other peoples effort and work.

  11. DUde, I know. Once I saw some scum post a copied picture of the Bionicle that never came out: Certavus on the gallery too. I also knew not to vote for any of your MOCs (sorry) because I saw a URL at the bottom, and when I zoomed in, I found out about this AWESOME blog. I hope the person who stole your MOC can read this: F**K YOU!

  12. Mr. Anonymous,

    One, I also stopped Fire Lord.
    Two, I sent my rookie friends (yes, Rocka too) to capture you.
    Beat that.

  15. oh dear, people are copying his stuff in hero recon team http://herorecon.lego.com/en-us/Gallery/Public-View-Hero-Gallery?hid=c1be6d8e-5fe2-11e0-b6a5-e61f13291377

  16. It's obvious that they didn't make it (What kid has the time to remove the background and fix the image quality?).

    Also, herorecon launched today for a little bit of good news.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Guys, since I failed on the contact us on LEGO.com, can someone who is 13 or older do it for me? I am turning 13 in December, and they still took me as a joke!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Upload the same picture with your own account, and state in the description your website with the your pictures and say that the b**tard robo-g stole your picture (Without expletives of course)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Actually, some dork copied a guy named Certavus onto the gallery.
    Certavus was a Bionicle set that was never put into stores. The original image was from Biosector01.com.
    And....
    Om Nom Nom Nom Nom Nom Nom Om Nom Nom Nom Nom Nom Nom

  35. That is just ridiculous that someone would do that! If I did that to you, I would at least give you full credit.

    ReplyDelete
  36. some people are just stupid

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hey Robo-G! You are also shaming everyone in Singapore! Make some common sense! I am also a Singaporean!

    ReplyDelete
  38. if you are having so much trouble with this, you should make a backround for every moc you make. and make sure some of the backround is right behind the moc. that way, low-lifes like robo-g cant erase all the backround with out also erasing some of the hero as well. also, put the words "HErO FACTORY MOCS BLOG" bigger, so if the pic is stolen, people know who should be credited for the real pic. or, you could add some "signiture pieces" on all ur mocs. like a 2 mm red axle piece sticking out of the shoulder or something

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hé, Robo-G, alors vous pensez que vous pouvez voler Mocs d'autres personnes, bien que vous avez tort, car nous ne dis lego, lego et pris soin de lui et maintenant vous n'aurez plus jamais voler GPM anyones AGAIN.

    Ps. this text is in french.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Good news! I went to look at the creations that Robo-G stole and guess what, no creations came up!
    Lego must've busted them!

    "my spacter" Honestly.
    Glad these guys are long gone.

    Listen up people.
    Don't steal or plagiarize.
    Specter will hunt you down. And then you'll get steamed.

    ReplyDelete
  42. someone should never do this. its illigal and so there is a 60 percent chance that u will go to jail. robo-G is lucky he didnt get arrested still he really shouldnt do this because it could humiliate him for the rest of his life

  47. @LegoJang- I have found a new thief among the regular Lego Gallery. I've already posted a comment notifying others that he is a fraud (with proof), and hopefully he will be brought down soon. Hopefully you can help me out :)
