Forum member Patriot720 has finished another amazing MOC. He even calls it his greatest creation yet! Take a look at his fearsome Imperial Patrol Ship and feel sorry with those poor pirates attacking it.
A mighty vessel indeed!
This 6 cannon strong Imperial Patrol Ship has everything to track down and destroy the Imperial's enemies. Other than her firepower she is fast as the devil because of her large sails and a loyal crew of 10 men (2 officers + 8 sailors/soldiers) who will take care of any threat, Pirate attacks included!
So discuss Patriot720's Imperial Patrol Ship in the Pirates forum!

"You there. Boy - help an old blind beggar to the door will ya? Now! Take me to Black Dog!"
If you have no idea what that is, it's from Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island. The same place as this outstanding MOC.
The Brick Time brings us one of the best pirate movie MOC's of all time. Be sure to whip into the pirate forum to discuss the Admiral Benbow Inn!

The poll today is about the LEGO® Classic-Pirate ship sets more than the land based ones. The poll is to vote for which Classic-Pirate ship figure head you think is the best. Choose from a myriad of figure heads such as a golden parrot, skull, naked women (you can't vote Zorro), or even no figure head just like on the Imperial Flagship. So get voting now!

A strange island cropped in the LEGO® Caribbean. Below lies the wreckage of a mighty vessel now laying waste to animals and plants that may want to use it as their new home. However, it also sports a tree house built high up to be used as a resting place for weary travellers or even a hide out for bandits, either way it is welcoming and a friendly place.
Lying on top of the wreckage of a mighty ship the multilevelled island is somewhat unstable.
Paul cantu has created for us a amazing multilevelled island resting on top of supportive pillars. A long lost ship is now home to many creatures who feed off the remains of what was left on board...

"Big Daddy" Nelson, an admin of the Forbidden Cove, has created a wonderful alternative version of the 6242 Soldier's Fort. Although the modules are based upon the new style of the original 6242 set, he did use some of the classic minifigs and parts. As you can see, it worked out just fine!
Something old, something new... mix it together, and you get the "Other side of the Fort"...
Now go discuss "Big Daddy" Nelson's Le Baton Rouge in the Pirates forum!
