LEGO Pirate Spanish Fort MOC TheBrickAvenger

Lights, camera, awesome!

Another new creation by TheBrickAvenger shows the power of good photography.  The build is clean and beautiful, I especially like the two-tone sand and the palm tree, but the MOC is enhanced greatly by the perfectly clean background and evenly lit photo.

Sharpen your photography skills then discuss The Spanish Fort in the forum.

Tear in the Sand

The pirates travel the desert in search of water.

It isn't every day you see a band of pirates in the middle of a dry desert. Petronel tells the story of a group of pirates in search of the world's purest water. The landscaping, architecture, and pirate crew are worthy of note when discussing the great details on this awesome LEGO creation.

Read the story and discuss Tear in the Sand in the forum.

LEGO Pirate Lagoon MOC TheBrickAvenger

Inspiration can come from odd places...

Inspiration can come from many places.  TheBrickAvenger based this MOC on a PLAYMOBIL® set by the same name.  TheBrickAvenger's version is packed with fine details like brick-built cannons and bird, a dinosaur tail palm tree and the subtle and well executed ground shading.  As a bonus bit of fun, see if you can spot all the collectible minifigure parts used in this MOC as well.

Look for inspiration in a strange place, then discuss Pirate Lagoon in the forum.

Treasure Cave

A band of pirates reclaim their hidden treasure.

This magnificent diorama by Mark of Falworth depicts some pirates visiting their treasure cave. The scurvy band of misfits have apparently reclaimed their loot and are taking it out of the cavern. There are many noteworthy details including the sea weed, foliage, and the water technique that Mark has become well known for.

Marvel at the details, and then discuss the Treasure Cave in the forum.

Islander hut and statue

An Islander and his pig share this lovely hut!

Islanders have always been a fun branch off of the Pirate's theme. Mariko brings us this lovely hut and statue built for every common Islander to enjoy. With an awesome statue, tiki torches, and a pig by their side, who wouldn't want to visit this lovely home?

Discuss the hut and statue in the forum.

The Pub at the End of the World by Rufus and Pandora

Saturday, August 18th, 2012

Turns out the world is flat.

Having seen this MOC in person, I can say it's incredible. From the beautifully built pub to the rock base it lives on, this is one stunning MOC. Besides looking great on the outside, this has a full interior and a beautiful view of the nearby waterfall. This is a MOC you have to see, did I mention it won Best Small Building at the 2012 Brickworld?

The Battle of Corunna by Mark of Falworth

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

The art of surprise?

Flickr user Mark of Falworth has created a great battle scene with some of the best foliage that I've ever seen. It looks so natural yet not overbearing of the scene. Will the ambush work?

Islanders Rock

Islanders doing their Islander thing.

Our very own Sebeus I recently built some lovely little Islander creations. These were originally intended to make up a bigger diorama, but the project was never finished. The rocks that Sebeus I constructed are very impressive and offer a very interesting level of detail and shape. How did he do it you ask?

Come find out, then discuss Islanders Rocks in the forum.
