Hoang Dang built a beautiful fishing ship to pay tribute to the crew of the Vietnamese fishing boat which was sunk by Chinese patrol. This is a moc built with unorthodox techniques and good intentions. My first reaction was 'Best MOC ever!' when I just saw this. Very well done Hoang Dang, brick on!

Flickr member and LEGO Space Fan Miro Dudas a.k.a Miro78 shared this amazing space structure MOC in his account. The icosahedron shaped Dom is the most interesting part of this design ofcourse. The stucture has alsa an interior full of plants too. The entrance section of the structure is hexagonally shaped and look unusual and interesting too. This MOC is featuring classic space astronauts in various colors as well as new green classic space astronauts using yellow head-pieces like the original figures. I'm sure that this MOC will be remembered as one of the most original sci-fi creations of this year because of its original structural shape.
Bio-dom is built from many hexagonal and pentagonal sections which are built with hinges. Sections are connected to eachother with bar-clip connections.

LEGO Fan and Flickr member César Soares a.k.a Cesbrick has shared this incredible MOC in his flickr.com account recently. His MOC includes seven different vignettes each of which is a small vignette depicting a apartment room full with details. This is a high quality MOC built with advanced techniques worth to be looked closely. My favourite rooms are the Home office, Home gym and the living room. I especially like how the curtains in the living room have been built. Check out the builders photo-stream to see the individual room vignettes.

Flicker member and LEGO fan gonkius shared this retro-style space rocket in his Flickr photostream. The rocket design originate from the comic books Destination Moon (French: Objectif Lune) and Explorers on the Moon (French: On a marché sur la Lune) which are the sixteenth and seventeenth volume of The Adventures of Tintin. The shaping of the model is amazing and makes this MOC unique. The LEGO model is very accurate to the comic book as well. The creator also makes the suitable minifigures including Tintin's dog snowy according to the comic book.

This magnificent model of Erebor, a city from the movie The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, is created by Flickr and LUGPol member Michał Kaźmierczak a.k.a. migalart who is also known for his large size MOC's like Avatar which was also blogged here and Mustafar. This creation is realy huge consisting 55.000 pieces. Honostly I like everything in this including the details on terrain and the walls but I like the stone statues the most. I'm pretty sure that this MOC will be one of the unforgettable creations of 2015.

LEGO Fan and Flickr.com member Riskjockey shared this brick built model of the spaceship "Ranger" from the movie Interstellar (2014). The shaping of the vehicle looks very accurate with vehicle shown in the movie. The builder of the MOC also post his creation in LEGO Ideas. I would like to see this spaceship come out as a Ideas set myself. Support the creation if you like it too. Ship also has a decorated interior and opening hatches. Riskjockey also created four minifigures for the astronaut characters from the movie.
Shaping of a LEGO version of a real life vehicle is always limited with the dimensions and angles of the parts and its pretty difficult to catch the exact shape but the creator did a really good job recreating the angles of the original vehicle.

This impressive Sci-fi Tank is built and shared by LEGO Fan and Flickr member Sinan Bitişik a.k.a. sinan. The shaping of the front section like a bulldozer and the huge gun on the tank reminds me the Vindicator tanks from Warhammer 40k. Small details with bright colors like yellow and purple pieces makes the creation more exiting as well. Sinan is known for and very talented at building models of everyday objects and machines with LEGO pieces using different techniques. Check out the builders previous creations not to miss some great MOC's.

Forced perspective is a very clever and amazing method to create scenes that look much bigger than they actually are. Check out the creations shared by LEGO Fan Stormbringer in Flickr and MOCpages. He created a battle scene in his creation; "Seven Nation Army". Creating a forced perspective scene could be harder than you think. Check out this photo how the scene above is created:
According to the creator, the MOC is a total 128 studs long and was divided into four seperate elevated sections for each foreshortened scene. If you look closely to the pieces in the backround you will realise that those are tiny bits of black and gray pieces, making it look like there are thousands of soldiers are fighting.
Another beautiful MOC from the sama builder is named "Dragon Raid" which introduce mico scale castle and dragons flying in the backround as if they are in far distance.
