Introducing Build a MOC

Build a MOC is website where you can buy kits of other people's MOCs and, of course, make your MOCs available to others, too.

It's run by two AFOLs, Gerardo and Alvaro, in the south of Spain, who started selling parts on the secondary market to finance their LEGO hobby back in 2012. Since then their business has grown considerably and now their store has over 650,000 parts in 10,000 lots.

During this time they have encountered two problems: first, it can be a hassle for buyers wanting to build a particular MOC to source the parts, particularly when multiple sellers are involved.

    Thank you for finding it out! We have disabled the designs and contacted the designer to let him know that they will have to change the design of the pictures.
