Ever thought, "LEGO Digital Designer is great for trains, but for pirates, it's terrible"? Well now, Cpt. Pegleg Blockbeard has proved you wrong with his new MOC, the Imperial Trading Post Remix - LDD Style. It is a great MOC, utilising clever techniques and ideas into creating an Imperial Trading Post inspired merchant port. You need to see this one properly to fully grasp its complete creativity!

Oh no! It's the British! Not too long ago, our relatively new member, Daniel G, rolled out a fantastic MOC of a British 30-gun 2-deck frigate named the HMS Active. But wait! There's more... Daniel has recently modified this ship - for the better! You'll definitely want to check this one out!
Let's thank him!
A while ago our good member ImperialShadows decided it was time someone took control of the Classic-Pirates.com newsletter and volunteered to become its editor. So now, it's time to praise him for all the hard work he has put into bringing us that wonderful publication every month!
Update: Since this story was originally posted, the newsletter program has been discontinued, replaced by the blog you are now reading. ImperialShadows, however, has continued his news duties in the form of posting here and carrying over the graphics for the blog itself from the former site.
SuvieD wants you!
Will you take care of 95 scurvy-dogs?
4 ships, 95 men, fully armed, and a whole load more, need a good home! Long-standing Eurobricks member SuvieD offers up this haul, containing 14 rare pirate minifigures, barrels (quite literally!) of parts, hard-to-find sails and ship-parts and more epaulettes than you could shake a yard-stick at!
A LEGO Pirates Brickfilm
Actinidia Entertainment and Ear-Shock Studios present us with the Fragmentary Map. Spend your well earned hours watching this film which is chock full with comedy, special effects, and lots and lots of swashbuckling pirate action, not to mention a reminder of one of our favourite classic LEGO games of all time, as well as much, much more!
"It is a vile drink that turns even the most respectable men into complete scoundrels!"
So says Elizabeth Swann. Yet every pirate needs his heavenly elixir, so what better way to get it than through I Scream Clone's Rum Trade? Great landscaping, waves and a crow's nest top it all off, but rum remains - and always will - at the heart of a pirate's life!
