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.
