Don't look behind now!

Don't look back!

Evildead depicts a giant squid chasing after a light snack. The poor pirate seems to be in quite a panic. The details on the squid are great, and the water technique is unique and different from what is usually seen when depicting water in Lego form.

KadasBence’s Map Vendor

The Map Vendor

A Map Vendor and his cart

Flickr user KadasBence recently built this splendid little cart for a map vendor. This scurvy salesman goes about selling maps to fellow pirates who are in need of instructions to a specific location, whether it leads them to some buried treasure or the nearest drinking tavern. The lovely little details make this cart and minifigure superb, and the whole style feels reminiscent of LEGO's Classic Pirates theme.

Buy a map, and then discuss the Map Vendor in the forum.

A Tiny Big Scene

The first thing to catch my eye was the use of microfigures which drew me in deeper, and that's when I noticed all the great stuff here. A whole port built on a 16x32 baseplate (plus a little overhang) and the ocean side the same size with a great little ship. The dock itself is my favorite part and it looks perfect for the microfigure world, but there are lots of little details to see like the buildings and the ship.

Eastern Pirate Junk

An Eastern Pirate Junk

Eastern pirates aren't something as commonly seen here on Classic-Pirates.com, so it is very refreshing to see a Pirate junk ship built by user Bjornu. In making this vessel he also introduces a new faction of eastern pirates. The unique red sails, eastern pirate crew, and lavish details on this vessel help make it stand out as a unique pirate creation.

The London Carriage Chase

I hear a rumor... Jack Sparrow is in London

Conveying such an action-packed scene as the Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides London Carriage Chase in still images with LEGO might seem impossible. However, swash buckler found a way to do it marvelously. The whole scene has been set up and created with such attention to detail that I can almost hear the sounds and the music from the film. He also took the time to move Jack around for photos so we could see his progress through the scene.

Motorized Ghost Ship by Sariel

Lego Motorized Ghost Ship

A motorized Lego ghost ship.

What happens when Lego Technic and Pirates clash? It seems we’ve just found out. Combining the power of Technic and Pirates, Sariel has built a motorized pirate ship that actually moves around. This lavishly spooky vessel also features some lovely details such as the crew getting into ghoulish mishaps and dark accents that personify this vessel as a ghost ship. It is certainly a vessel that many a sea fairing men would surely fear.

LEGO Pirate Recoiling Cannon MOC Sebeus Iniwum

Technic elements have a new home!

We have been blessed with many beautiful ship models over the years on Classic-Pirates.com, and now our forum is starting to see some awesome "functional" designs from our members.  Sebeus Iniwum strikes again with these recoiling cannons using technic springs and beams to create the realistic looking action.  Head to the forum to check out a video (complete with sound!) of the firing action!
