After the Governor had completed taking over the island, enslaving the locals and generally causing a mess and havoc, he stole from the islanders riches deep within their fragile mines. After stealing millions worth of gold and treasure, what better to do than build a new ship and cover it with the new riches.

Karlo Toth has made a very nice MOC, with an interesting story.
It depicts pirates on an off day relaxing at the First Mate's brother's castle.
An unusual meeting...
Look at the beautiful rocks with lots of vibrant greenery, and all of the fun little details like the maiden fishing for sharks of all things!
The MOC even has a brilliant pirate ship for those enthusiasts we have here.
Look at more pictures of the great ship and landscaping on MOCpages, and discuss your favorite parts of it in the Pirate Forum!

For those who didn't know this yet, eBay is a great source to find LEGO Idea Books, (alternative) instructions, LadyBird books and more!
As an example we found these two great auctions!
The various LEGO Idea Books provide many alternative instructions which you can build when you own the basic (Pirates?) bricks.
LEGO Idea Book 260
And who doesn't remember them? The Ladybird comic books!
Ladybird books presents: Captain Roger's Birthday!
Of course you can find all kinds of written LEGO stuff on eBay, if you lost your instructions just type in: LEGO instructions + set number and if you are a bit lucky you will find one or more sellers!

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!
