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!
We saw this and thought it was brilliant, such a small model but with so much life, detail and humour. We especially like how 2 Much Caffeine did the smoke for the cannon ball and the expressions on the people's faces.
Usually when a pirate tells you to build an outpost, you build an outpost. Not in this case, instead the pirate builds a sand castle! Marriann Asanuma, former model builder, brings us this little, Intriguing MOC.
"What do you like best: vessels and vehicles or bases and buildings?"
Over the past few days, I've been in Pirate-mode really enjoying the new 2009 Pirate theme. I have not yet found the new Soldier Fort or the large Pirate Ship, but I'm really looking forward to the fort. I love island and fort sets. As I've been looking at all the new pirate sets, it got me asking myself, "What do I enjoy more, Ships or Structures"?
