Classic-Pirates.com LEGO® Ambassador, Bonaparte, was fortunate enough to attend LEGO World 2009. Whilst there, he saw a huge Pirate layout with ships and islands, outposts and fortresses, and he was kind enough to share some photos of this spectacular layout in out forum!
The Great Western LEGO® show is the largest LEGO show in the UK. It is held at the Museum of the Great Western Railway in Swindon on 3rd and 4th October 2009. It features a wide variety of displays from Pirates, Cars and Space through to Technic and Trains. There will also be building workshops where the public can get involved with the expert builders to help create a 100,000 brick mosaic. Visit the LEGO Shop and other independent LEGO traders for great deals on some exclusive LEGO sets not available on the high street.
We will have a Classic-Pirates.com Crew member at this event and hope to bring back some very cool coverage of the fun!
A week ago, Classic-Pirates.com members YnyklY and Cap'n Blackmoor were lucky enough to find themselves on the decks of the Amsterdam, the replica of the VOC ship by the same name. An amazing experience for them, Blackmoor was kind enough to share some of the photos he took of the adventure in the Pirates forum.
Missed the Pirate action at Brickworld 2009? Well now you can go and view some of the great snaps LEGO® fans took at the event. Many AFOL's attended brought their Pirate set ups with them to show off and display.
Veteran ship MOCer Kurt Baty, better known as Republic of Texas Navy LEGO Naval Architect, took his fleet (and numerous other MOCs) to Brickworld last month, and the display sure is a sight to behold! Furthermore, the RTS Zavala was nominated for, and won, the prestigious Brickworld 2009 Best Sea Craft Award.
Be sure to congratulate Kurt on his Brickworld display in the Pirate forum, or find more out about his ships here
More photos from Brickworld have been dug up, and some of them are quite impressive. This time, Bluesecrets presents us with her tavern, d'Blue-n Lagoon Saloon. With a nice little cove and docking spaces for your ships, it seems some vikings have heard of this place too...
As more coverage of Brickworld 2009 is released, Mister Phes finds us a great little scenic MOC, a Pirate Volcano created by Classic-Castle.com admin Ben Ellermann. Featuring a light up interior giving the effect of real lava (well, almost real) this nice MOC includes some great techniques including the use of 1 x 2 grey slopes to achieve a stunning random rocky effect.
Brian Darrow's Pirates of the Bermuda Traingle made an appearance at Brickworld on the weekend.
After another exciting LEGO® filled weekend at Brickworld, we are starting to see coverage of the amazing event. And Pirates certainly made their presence! What did you think of Pirates at Brickworld 2009?
