Special Interview with Djordje Dobrosavljevic a.k.a. Djokson

This week we continue our series of Special Interviews with another very talented guest of honor is Djordje Dobrosavljevic a.k.a. Djokson. He is known for his colorful and amazingly shaped character figures, robots and creatures of various kinds. Photos from the work of our guest will be presented between the questions but you should check the builders Flickr photo-stream for tons of amazing creations.

Kaplan: We already know you are one of the best LEGO MOC'ers in the world. What can you tell us about yourself other than that?

Djordje: Thank you, I’m very flattered! My name is Djordje Dobrosavljevic, I’m 25 and I work as a translator. My main hobby is Lego but I’ve also got an interest in music and animation. Djokson is just a nickname I picked up over the years and it kind of stuck, so I ended up using it as an online handle too.

K:  Do you remember the day when you got your first LEGO set? Which set was it? And How old were you when you started playing with LEGO bricks?

D:  My first Lego set was 8534 Tahu from the original Bionicle line, I got it on release in 2001. I was seven back then.

K:  What is your best/unforgettable memory involving LEGO?

D: I’ve had plenty of amazing experiences owing to the hobby over the years but I think having my builds featured in the Masterpiece gallery at the Lego House probably takes the cake!

K: If you have to choose, what is your all-time favorite LEGO set?

D: That’s a tough one. I think I’m going to have to say 8563Tahnok, the Bohrok were an amazing set of figures.

Amazing Red Dragon MOC by Mitch Phillips

This amazingly shaped red dragon MOC was recently shared by talented builder and LEGO Fan Mitch Phillips in his flickr.com photostream. The shaping and the texture of the creature is really şmpressive. Using rare tone of blue for the wing and leaf pieces is a good design choice. In contrast with the classic red tone it makes a nice contrasts in color. Making the scales of the dragon using flipper footgear pieces is another great idea which makes the creation unique.

Beetle Skyvan by Vince Toulouse

This magnificent ait-craft MOC was built by one of guest of honors, a very talented builder Vince Toulouse. The use of plasic wings are really extraordinary. The shaping of the hull is very smooth as always. I especially like the sideways use of the large windshield pieces and the interior. The cockpit section is also awesome two floor design.
