KadasBence’s Map Vendor

The Map Vendor

A Map Vendor and his cart

Flickr user KadasBence recently built this splendid little cart for a map vendor. This scurvy salesman goes about selling maps to fellow pirates who are in need of instructions to a specific location, whether it leads them to some buried treasure or the nearest drinking tavern. The lovely little details make this cart and minifigure superb, and the whole style feels reminiscent of LEGO's Classic Pirates theme.

Buy a map, and then discuss the Map Vendor in the forum.

DarkTemplar’s Flying Dutchman

The Flying Dutchman

DarkTemplar's take on the Flying Dutchman

The Flying Dutchman has been built by a handful of builders before, with each version showcasing unique features and details. DarkTemplar continues the tradition with his version of Davy Jones' famous ship. The color scheme of grey, black, and dark green works surprisingly well for this vessel, and the white leaf pieces used as sails are particularly creative. The ship is also built in the scale of a set, so that it wouldn't dwarf official LEGO pirate ships like The Black Pearl or the Queen Anne's Revenge.

Pirate on an Arch

A pirate resting on an arch.

The LEGO Pirates theme sometimes lends itself to vignettes better than others, and this is a great example of such a scene. Fellow user Haplo tells that he came across an image of a pirate resting on an arch online when he was searching for some inspiration and ideas. The image is in fact a small scene taken from the famous Disneyland attraction known as Pirates of The Caribbean. The pirate resting on the arch, the parrot, and the other various details around the scene make this vignette a small treasure.

Crossing The Alps

Napoleon's troops crossing the Alps.

Small pirate vignettes are always effective ways of telling a short story or tale through LEGO bricks, and michaelozzie manages to effectively tell one through his amazing scene of Napoleon's troops crossing through the Alps. The lighting and composition used in this shot is stunning and is intended to be reminiscent of Keith Rocco's famous paintings of Napoleon's campaign.

Mini Queen Anne's Revenge

A mini Queen Anne's Revenge

At first glance one might think that this vessel is a full size Lego pirate ship, complete with a crew and rowboat. Upon closer inspection one will find that this is actually a miniaturized version of Captain Blackbeard's beloved ship seen in the film Pirates of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. The custom sails and rigging, intricately placed details, and stylish yet simple base make this mini ship something everyone would love to display on a shelf, even Blackbeard himself. Bidea certainly has an eye for building miniature ships.

Eastern Pirate Junk

An Eastern Pirate Junk

Eastern pirates aren't something as commonly seen here on Classic-Pirates.com, so it is very refreshing to see a Pirate junk ship built by user Bjornu. In making this vessel he also introduces a new faction of eastern pirates. The unique red sails, eastern pirate crew, and lavish details on this vessel help make it stand out as a unique pirate creation.

Lego Motorized Ghost Ship

A motorized Lego ghost ship.

What happens when Lego Technic and Pirates clash? It seems we’ve just found out. Combining the power of Technic and Pirates, Sariel has built a motorized pirate ship that actually moves around. This lavishly spooky vessel also features some lovely details such as the crew getting into ghoulish mishaps and dark accents that personify this vessel as a ghost ship. It is certainly a vessel that many a sea fairing men would surely fear.

The Tower at Black Rock

Flickr user JimKeepers recently constructed this unique scene. A small pirate band of misfits row toward a tall watch tower encrusted against a rocky black shore. The water, tower, and black rocks help make this small diorama eye catching and worth a look.
