Often for LEGO ships, the large pre-fabricated hull parts are used, producing good results, but when something is made with a custom hull, it is something special. In this great MOC, DARKspawn has used many clever techniques to give the hull that wooden look, as well as an incredible attention to detail.
Swing by the pirate forum and check The Black Meg out properly.

And now, the moment we have all been waiting for - official images of the new 2009 Pirates line! After much speculation - and red-tape squirming - we are all very excited at Classic-Pirates.com! With sets like these, why wouldn't we be?
Think it's too good to be true? Check them out!

LEGO® Digital Designer has many uses, so it goes without saying that a great LDD pirate MOC rakes up a fuss. So prepare to be fussing pirate fans, because Joey Lock has something HUGE in store for us!
Here Joey demonstrates that LDD can be taken seriously as a tool for designing awesome fortresses. What lies before us spans three unique structures, all maintaining that classic piratical atmosphere, further aided by coastal details built into the foreground. This fort would definitely make a fine addition to anyone's collection, but - of course - there is the price tag...
Discuss it - now!

"After crashing against a shark infested reef, our lone Imperial Governor is stranded on a small, unstable spit of land. And I think the heat is getting to him..."
Not too long ago, SirNadroj treated us to a beautiful MOC - The Drunken Kraken. She was a sturdy ship, said by some to be unsinkable, so it came as a great surprise to Eurobricks members when she was found at the bottom of the ocean! I guess that's just what happens when sailing in enemy waters...

Barracks of the I Handgunners Hochland Regiment
Kris Kelvin has packed in incredible detail - but it's the brick and woodwork that really turn the heads.
Eyes left - to the Pirate Forum!

Look what we've found! 62 Imperial Guards/Soldiers on eBay with 6266 Cannon Cove and 6265 Saber Island thrown in for good measure! A rather sizeable army indeed!
Would you like to command these troops?
It seems almost everyone wants to build a bigger army so auctions like this really help - if you can win them of course.
Discuss this eBay find in the LEGO Pirate Forum or place a bid on eBay - who knows, you might become the commander of this grand army!

Dreamweb wants to know...
"Will there ever be a new ship better than the BSB or SES?"
After the hugely successful release of the legendary Black Seas Barracuda and Skull Eye Schooner in the original pirates line, many LEGO enthusiasts were beginning to question whether there would ever be a better pirate ship than the two. Then, without warning, the 4+ ships arrived on the shelves. Things were looking pretty bleak - until now. 2009 marks the start of a new era in the LEGO Pirate line, and leaked images have showed us some pretty sweet stuff. But are the new sets better than the original ones? Will there ever be pirate ships better than the originals? You decide!
Discuss and vote for a new bigger ship in the LEGO Pirates Forum!

Stranded - and a good find.
Stranded on a remote island - but wait! Is that the wreckage of a ship? It appears our intrepid hero has constructed shelter from whatever he could muster and somehow gathered a fine selection of food. How he baked that bread we may never know...
See the shipwreck for yourself and discuss to your heart's content!
