Discuss LEGO Minifigure Series 11 - Island Warrior in the forum

Ooga Booga!

It's been almost 20 years since LEGO gave us some non-licensed islander minifigs. The new figure from Collectible Minifigures Series 11 is a great addition to your island family. The new mask is painted with bright colors that go well with the new print on the torso and legs, as well as a new face print including a tribal tattoo.

Spanish Colonization of Latin America

This great scene comes to us from ACPin and features many Spanish Conquistadors arriving to the small island to talk to the natives. Be sure to check out all the photos and get a good look at the excellent water detailing and simple but effective vegetation.

The Islanders set up base on the Coast!

Bjournu has created a coastal base for the Islanders. With a fantastic base plate and a few clever building techniques, this MOC is worth a closer look to experience the details.

Burn Pirate Burn!!

Pirates are pretty good at pillaging, but sometimes they run across those who are even crazier them they are. Captain Heineken brings us this display of when Pirating can go wrong.

A place for pilaging, err relaxing

Coconut Island, a place for pillaging, errr relaxing.

Pillage and plunder is the Pirates ways, but occasionally you might find an island that the Pirates have yet to land on.  Coconut Island is one of those places.  With hot food all the time, and a lagoon for the ladies, be sure to check evildeads flickr account for even more pics!

River trading post by the Inventor

A place where gems are exchanged for croissants...

The river trading post, a place to get rich, or to be getting betrayed! Islanders trade valuable gems for nice fresh croissants. A fair deal of course! With some great pictures the Inventor shows us where he has been working on. A nice piece of art it is!

Hurry to the forum to discuss the Trading Post by the Inventor!

Friday, March 20th, 2009

Among Brickforge's new additions to their range of customs are a primitive spear and adze - great for variety in any Islander army. The new designs also helps differentiate between Incas, Mayas and Aztecs etc. and the Polynesian Islanders from the Lego sets.



Dicuss these new Brickforge tribal weapons in the forums, or head over there and get yourself some tribal spears or tribal swords!

Pirate Minifigures Part IV

Monday, March 17th, 2008

Unsurprisingly, TalonCard and Mister Phes concentrate on the Islanders in the latest installment of the Guide to the Pirate Mini-figures.

Part IV delves back in time, to the original owners of the Pirates' gold, the Islanders, who, quite reasonably, want it back!

Classic Pirate Minifigures ~ King Kahuka

Sunday, January 1st, 2006

King Kahuka was the tribal leader of the Islanders

King Kahuha

A leader in his own way, King Kahuka was the big boss of another LEGO&reg pirate line faction - the Islanders.

The Islanders were released in the year of 1994, and were apparently second rivals to the pirates and Captain Redbeard, although Broadside and Woodhouse didn't appear to have that much to do with them. King Kahuka was much more active in the world than the two military men, and about equal to Redbeard as far as how regular they were. The Islander king appeared in 6236 King Kahuka's Throne, 6256 Islander Catamaran and 6278 Enchanted Island.

Captain Redbeard was a problem for the Islander king at first, then Captain Ironhook was a nuisance before Captain Redbeard returned to the scene with Ironhook as part of the crew.

A great addition to the Classic Pirate line was the Islander faction, and they were led by a more than suitable king all the way until they were discontinued in 2001.

The Islander Girl

The Islanders and King Kahuka defended their homes from the Renegade Pirates

A beauty queen of the golden age of sail, the Islander girl had quite a simple face in comparison to the other Islanders with just her lipstick coated lips, two eyes and messy hair. Although this didn't stop the Renegade Pirates and Ironhook from - er - appreciating her company? She was only in two sets: 6256 Islander Catamaran and 6278 Enchanted Island, appearing in the latter with a quiver across her back - not quite the tame beauty, after all! She is thought to be King Kahuka's daughter.

The Islander Boys

Led by King Kahuka, there's not much to say about the Islander boys, because not much is known about them. They were quite secretive fellows, and they didn't let on much. But what we do know is that they were in sets 6278 Enchanted Island, 6260 Kahuka's Throne, 6241 Crocodile's Cage, 1788 Pirate's Chest, 6264 Forbidden Cove and 6256 Islander Catamaran, normally armed with spears or bow and arrows, making them essentially warriors.
The Islanders had no problems with Captain Redbeard, Broadside or Woodhouse, as the latter steered clear of them as he knew they were more skilled in battle than him, and the other two weren't on the shelves at the time.

The Islander Prince

The Islander Boys all look the same - apart from one fellow in 6264 Forbidden Cove, who wears the same bone necklace and facepaint as King Kahuka, but not the red mask. His similarity to the Islander King, but without the regal objects - the mask, staff and crocodile-chariot - leads us to believe he is, perhaps, Kahuka's son, the prince (and thus the brother of the Islander Girl).

Whenever more than one Islander appears in a set, Kahuka is always there to order them about. The sole exception is 6247 Forbidden Cove, implying that the Islander Prince has a measure of power over his fellow Islanders when Kahuka is not present.
