On a remote island in one of the seven seas, a marooned sailor sets up a small shack with only his pet dog for comfort. In this recent MOC SlyOwl has used everyday parts in new and unexpected ways.

Perhaps this island isnt so bad after all

New Pillage The Village Subforum!

November 6th, 2008 posted by Zorro

The Pillage The Village contest has become such a tremendous success that Lord Admiral Phes has decided to give it its own Subforum!

Click here to go to the new Pillage the Village subforum

Everything that has to do with the PTV contest can be found here from now on!

The previous titles and descriptions of the entry threads were a complete menagerie and it was looking very disorderly. Therefore Mister Phes painstakingly retitled and described all the entry threads on the first page using the same convention. He will do so for the entry threads on the other pages as well as they get bumped.

Mister Phes also made clear the rules about how the new PTV contest entry threads should be titled:

  • The thread title should be the title of the MOC, you may include "WIP" or "FINAL" but nothing else.
  • The thread description (the one beneath the title) should contain "Pillage the Village Contest - " then either "Large" , "Medium" or "Small" depending on the division.

Look what we've found - a MISB Skulls Eye Schooner on eBay!

MISB 6286 Skulls Eye Schooner

MISB Skulls Eye Schooners are quite rare now and tend to fetch quite high prices on eBay, sometimes exceeding the US$500 mark.  They could be considered even rarer than the equally popular 6285 Black Seas Barracuda, which enjoyed a Legend re-release back in 2002.

If you have a high disposable income check out the eBay auction page or visit our Mint In Seal Box Madness thread where you'll find dozens of Mint In Sealed Box Pirate LEGO sets waiting to be purchased!
