The Black Pearl by Brian Heins

Friday, January 23rd, 2009

Bonaparte has found pictures of this magnificent Lego pirate battleship in the Flickr gallery of a user called funkg177. After some investigation it seems to be the Black pearl, build by Brian Heins who also was the provider of the Pirates sets in the exhibition in Taiwan where these pictures were taken!

Even the BSB looks tiny compared to this giant...Brian stopped counting bricks at 150,000, and the ship was recently valued at an amazing 15,000 USD !

A Schooner-Class ship.

Wes: Geisha's name was inspired by Arthur Golden's Memoirs of a Geisha, a book I own that was made into a movie. It also relates to the white color of the ship's hull (think white facepaint).
