Hey everyone! I am DamonMM2000, and I build LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Ev3 creations. But before I got Mindstorms, my first Lego set was the 7239-1 Fire Truck; and for years I was hooked on the Lego City and Lego Racers themes. I did get into Lego Creator occasionally too then. Only since summer of 2013 have I began my journey with the Technic building style. It’s funny because I have been suggested buying the 9398 4×4 Crawler multiple times years before, but I refused because I was simply too “scared” to try out an unfamiliar new style of building. Of course, I wish I got that long ago 😉 After I bought my first Technic set (8065 Mini Container Truck), I basically abandoned building with classic Lego bricks and delved right in to Mindstorms (which I had been saving up for over two years anyhow). I went on a building craze for a while until I finally slowed down around this summer. Considering my limited experience with the Technic building system, I now take much more time building robots with quality.
There are several achievements in the field of LEGO® that I am very honored to claim. Here are a few (I may not remember them all):
- I currently have the highest MindScore on the official LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Community. MindScore was created about the same time as when the EV3 came out, and is supposed to rate how good of a builder you are. In my opinion, it’s more of a popularity thing; someone with more MindScore is usually a good builder, yet someone with lower MindScore doesn’t mean that he’s not good either. Anyway… my MindScore: 33000+ / 2nd highest MindScore is held by MindedLegos at 13000+ / 3rd highest MindScore is held by AREM2326 at 9000+
- I was the first person to build an accurate replica of the official MINDSTORMS® NXT model Alpha Rex 1.0 with only one EV3 set.
- Multiple robots of mine have been Featured on the official MINDSTORMS® website: ALPHA R3X, ALPHA R3X 3.0, and SumoStorm3r.
- I am the first and only to have two of one’s robots Featured on the official MINDSTORMS® website consecutively (twice in a row).
- My sumo robot, SumoStorm3r, has been featured on The NXT Step blog.
- My most awaited robot, CUB3, also has been featured on The NXT Step blog.
- In December of 2013, I was ReBricker Of The Week on the ReBrick website.
- Currently, my robot CTS-eV3 is featured on the front page of the Mindstorms Gallery.
- I have won in multiple official Mindstorms Community challenges, including the Art Bot challenge and the MicroBot challenge.
