6248 Volcano Island Redux

6248 Volcano Island Redux

Many current fans of LEGO Pirates never knew the classic sets back in the day. Sure there are the legends such as the Black Seas Barracuda, but there were in fact many other sets some modern fans never had. Eurobricks user 74louloute leans in to breach this gap by adding his own spin on the 1996 set "6248 Volcano Island" made for the L13 contest on Piratebrick.net. Using different rock techniques, "fleshy" skin tones, a home-made sail, and even a working volcano, he creates a new image for classic Pirates that everyone can now know.

Dead Man Tell No Tales

Ye be warned, Pirates!

Sir Nadroj built this great scene from the first Pirates of the Caribbean film during his time working with the LEGO group. The rock work, water, and minifigures make me wish this was a real set.

The Soldier's Bastion

Fear the wrath of - Is that a Hello Kitty flag!?

Zergu just completed a great diorama of a Redcoat Bastion. They are quite the army and shouldn't be messed with. Still, they better not let the Bluecoats see their flag or they'll never hear the end of it.

LEGO Pirate Aztec Priest MOC Buurli_Burri

We bow before you CMF priest!

LEGO may not be producing new pirate themed sets now, but we can still load up on pirate minifigures!  With every wave of new CMFs, we get opportunities to build new and unique figures to populate our MOCs.  Buurli_Burri blends the Aztec warrior and hula girl figures with and islander's hair piece to make this cool Aztec priest.

Mix and match your CMFs then discuss Aztec Priest in the forum.

Pointe Pescade Lighthouse by maedhros1980

Roll up your sails and stay a while.

There's no wasted space on this project. The lighthouse island is full of naturally eroded rock sculpture, flying and nesting birds, and palm trees. Of course, there's the beautiful lighthouse using white with dark red highlights and a working light! The small ship is surprisingly detailed with actual sails, rolled up for docking of course. The whole scene is place atop a very cleanly designed SNOT base.

None shall pass.

Our News Scout Horry brings us a nice little Vignette called Jolly Roger. It has all the classic-pirates elements, Pirates, skeletons, and sharks. I really like how he designed the teeth, the have just the right curve and a clever use of some pieces if you look closely.
