The Imperial Armada minifigs and sets in general currently belong to the most expensive of the theme. It is very rare we find a big auction like this one, containing FOUR 6280 Armada Flagships, 20 Imperial Armada minifig soldiers and 9 horses to support your Cavalry - all armed to the teeth!
A REAL Armada!
Check out the auction before it ends!

"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!

SlyOwl takes Floating Rock Ships to a whole new level with his FRS Shakespeare:
It's an Imperial lightening rod!
. . . But it should obviously fall under the "Floating Rock of Magnificence" category instead.
Go on and discuss the Imperial Lightening Catcher in the Pirate forum!

"WRECK OF THE HESPERUS"
It was the schooner Hesperus,
That sailed the wintery sea;
And the skipper had taken his little daughter,
To bear him company...
...At daybreak, on the bleak sea-beach,
A fisherman stood aghast,
To see the form of a maiden fair,
Lashed close to a drifting mast.
The salt sea was frozen on her breast,
The salt tears in her eyes;
And he saw her hair, like the brown sea-weed,
On the billows fall and rise.
Such was the wreck of the Hesperus,
In the midnight and the snow!
Christ save us all from a death like this,
On the reef of Norman's Woe!

For many months now a team of dedicated volunteers have been working within The Shipyard to produce the content which appears daily on the frontpage of Classic-Pirates.com.
"The Shipyard?" you ask? The Shipyard is a hidden VIP sub-forum within the LEGO Pirates Forum where volunteers work on special projects.
We want to begin rewarding our volunteers for their contributions so we're implementing a ranking system which enables them to receive promotions for the quality and quantity of their contributions. Each rank has it's own tag and special priveleges which increase with each rank. There will also be contests exclusive to The Shipyard so only those who are part of the Ranking System will be able to participate.
Get yourself to the LEGO Pirates Forum to learn more
about the NEW Shipyard Ranking System!

Bonaparte has found pictures of this magnificent Lego pirate battleship in the Flickr gallery of a user called funkg177. After some investigation it seems to be the Black pearl, build by Brian Heins who also was the provider of the Pirates sets in the exhibition in Taiwan where these pictures were taken!
Even the BSB looks tiny compared to this giant...Brian stopped counting bricks at 150,000, and the ship was recently valued at an amazing 15,000 USD !

So now you can post your MOCs and MODs in this new subforum and all other pirate discussion can be made in the main pirate forum. So what are you waiting for?
Head on over to our new and exciting subforum, then voice your thoughts in the pirate forum!
