Living is Better Than Sinking

Another wonderful creation from V&A Steamworks, this little town is full of detail. Turning a ship into a home is not easy, turning it into three homes is amazing. There's some great SNOT work here, and a few little scenes happening.

The Admirable Admiral

A Mighty Home on the Sand

The story behind this ship is as interesting as the ship itself. The shipwreck became the home of a poor ex Imperial Officer, though she isn't seaworthy any more, she made a fine home for him. There is so much detail in such a small space it amazes me. Using the rock formation as a natural stair case, keeping the look of the ship while adding a "front yard" for the tiny house, and the plants turning the old mast into a tree again, are all some really great details not to be missed. You'll want to check the thread to see the large photos and some great part usage as well as read the whole story behind the project.

Pirates Can Collaborate to Victory!

Pirates Can Collaborate to Victory!

The Eurobricks collaborative team went with a pirates theme for Brickworld Chicago this year. They blew all other pirate displays out of the water with the creations including 13 ships, 8 islands, a volcano, sea monsters, port town, imperial fort, and working waterfall. Not only did the group display itself win this year at Brickworld 2012 in Chicago, but EuroBricks staff members Pandora and Rufus won Best Small Building for the Pub at the End of the World (part of the collaborative) and Si-MOCs our Eurobrick's Sci Fi Regulator won Build Master.  Big Cam took pictures of the layout.

Libertatia Microfigura by V&A Steamworks

A Tiny Big Scene

The first thing to catch my eye was the use of microfigures which drew me in deeper, and that's when I noticed all the great stuff here. A whole port built on a 16x32 baseplate (plus a little overhang) and the ocean side the same size with a great little ship. The dock itself is my favorite part and it looks perfect for the microfigure world, but there are lots of little details to see like the buildings and the ship.

The London Carriage Chase

I hear a rumor... Jack Sparrow is in London

Conveying such an action-packed scene as the Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides London Carriage Chase in still images with LEGO might seem impossible. However, swash buckler found a way to do it marvelously. The whole scene has been set up and created with such attention to detail that I can almost hear the sounds and the music from the film. He also took the time to move Jack around for photos so we could see his progress through the scene.

Eurobrick’s 4th LDD RCB – PIRATES!

Eurobrick's 4th LDD RCB PIRATES!

Thar be teamwork!

Fifteen builders from around the world built this great LDD fort through a months-long relay. Each participant was allowed to place up to 300 pieces and never move someone else's work. Amazingly in the end it all came together to form a cohesive build with lots of great details and some really fun easter eggs.

What Lies in the Shadow of the Statue by Matthew Hurt

What Lies in the Shadow of the Statue

What hidden treasure be this?

Matthew Hurt has created an exciting scene with pirates hiding their latest acquisitions in the cache under a forgotten statue. There are  many little details here from the precisely placed trees and vegetation, brick built seagulls keeping a lookout, to  the crumbed ruins of what looks to be a second statue. The whole thing really makes me wonder what else is going on and where that cave opening leads.
