What is LEGO MOC and How to Build?
With the increasing popularity of LEGO, not only are children addicted to LEGO sets but many adults are intrigued by LEGO’s quality, creativity and playability. Generally speaking, kids prefer standard LEGO set from which they can purchase a complete LEGO set in a box including instructions which explain step by step how they can build the LEGO set.
Adults, however, tend to have fun with Lego in a more complex and inspiring manner, which is totally different from the conventional way that children like to play with. Most adults love to create their own models that may be different from the original LEGO sets. The design of their creations may originate from some objects and figures observed in reality or some bizarre images and imaginary figures in a world of fantasy. In other words, most adult MOC enthusiasts can use their creativity to design and build their highly personalized and unique MOC sets. Alternatively, adult players can take a less complex approach by remaking an imitated MOC set that looks similar to an official LEGO set. They need to remake all kinds of creations by collecting the MOC building blocks that are quite similar to those provided by a LEGO official set. Adult players can still create their own design by making changes in the set even though they build a MOC set based on an existing LEGO model.
It is pleasurable, inspiring and entertaining to construct a MOC set as it engenders a great opportunity for kids and adults to awaken their imagination and realize their dreams, and eventually, they will savor the great sense of achievement.
Lego is fun! But it's really expensive! Most LEGO players often say "MOC is the right way to enjoy building LEGO sets." Are you a big fan of LEGO? Do you have some great ideas to build your own set or recreate a nice one that is similar to a LEGO set?
LEGO MOC is the best solution!
What is LEGO MOC?
LEGO MOC, which stands for LEGO My Own Creation, is built up in a customized, personalized and even creative way depending on each player's preference, rather than following LEGO’s original designs and official building instructions. LEGO MOC enthusiasts can design their own MOC sets which may display creative shapes as well as convey new and imaginative ideas. They can really make or recreate everything without following the initial ideas derived from LEGO’s designers. In a nutshell, LEGO MOC enthusiasts can jump out of the framework of LEGO's official set and completely rely on their own imagination and creativity to construct new models.

Introduce the batch matching system powered by Webrick
The use of the matching tool:
This tool supports a variety of part list formats, including Rebrickable .csv，bricklink .xml，studio .csv; .ldr; .xml and LEGO Digital Designer .lxf; .BOM; .dr. , so that it is easy and simple to upload your part lists to the tool.

As the search results come out, available parts can be directly added to the shopping cart and the purchase can be easily made with a single click. As for the parts that are not available temporarily, an out-of-stock list is provided to customers and made available for download so as to inform customers of the stock unavailability.
Features of the matching tool
In a conventional manner of purchase, most of the time, customers need to ask the seller in advance whether a wholesale purchase is accepted. If accepted, a part list will be sent out to seller for further communication. One or two days later, the seller provides quoted price, stock information and other relevant information to customers before an order is placed. In general, the above communication process between a buyer and a seller takes several days to reach a final deal. However, our matching tool can produce a product search result in a few seconds, and purchase orders can be made immediately.
