Pirates Can Collaborate to Victory!

Pirates Can Collaborate to Victory!

The Eurobricks collaborative team went with a pirates theme for Brickworld Chicago this year. They blew all other pirate displays out of the water with the creations including 13 ships, 8 islands, a volcano, sea monsters, port town, imperial fort, and working waterfall. Not only did the group display itself win this year at Brickworld 2012 in Chicago, but EuroBricks staff members Pandora and Rufus won Best Small Building for the Pub at the End of the World (part of the collaborative) and Si-MOCs our Eurobrick's Sci Fi Regulator won Build Master.  Big Cam took pictures of the layout.
