Small Soldiers' Outpost
Eurobricks member Mestari has shared with us his first pirate MOC! He has built a small outpost for a couple soldiers and it looks like something straight from the 1990's pirate theme! Even with its classic feel, there are some modern updates, such as a custom Governor's daughter. She's probably the one who planted all the flowers. Mestari was even nice enough to upload instructions for this set if you wish to build it yourself.
Hit up the forum to view more pictures or get the instructions for Small Soldiers' Outpost!

Ahoy there mates! It has only been 12 days since the launch of the Design A NEW LEGO Pirates Sub-Theme project and there has already been a quite substantial amount of progress.
The Design A NEW LEGO Pirates Sub-Themes project was initiated by the Classic-Pirates LEGO Ambassador, Mister Phes. He, along with a few other chaps, will ensure that this project will reach its maximum potential. The goal of the project is to eventually submit a presentation to the LEGO Group via the LEGO Ambassador Project and reposition Pirates as one of LEGO's "evergreen" themes alongside City, Castle and Space. If you want to learn more, please visit the Overview or Q&A threads.
At this phase, sub-theme suggestions are currently being submitted and will continue to be until the deadline which is April 26. If you would like to suggest a LEGO Pirate sub-theme, please take a look at the Sub-Theme Suggestions thread. If you have a question concerning sub-theme suggestions, please look at the Sub-Theme Suggestions - Q&A thread.
As a reminder, please remember that the deadline for sub-theme suggestions is April 26 -that date will come sooner than you think. Behind the scenes, Mister Phes and others have been working diligently to make this project fruitful. Thus, keep an eye out on the Pirate forums as new developments will be surfacing in the near future.

Captain Redbeard Blindeye
Flickr user and EB member Sparkytron constructed this awesome Bionicle pirate. This is something we don't see often in the Pirates forum or in the Bionicle realm for that matter. Very creative part usage, and building techniques almost make this model come alive. This truly is the best Bionicle MOC ever!
Stop by the forum and comment on Captain Redbeard Blindeye by Sparkytron!

Pass me another bottle
The amazing angles on this little shack will get you wondering "How". Throughout the build, Legonardo has used parts in wonderful unintended ways. There are quite a few very nice close up detail photos in the post. All the strange angles in the build really make for a lively scene even though it has no live minifigures roaming.
Discuss Pirates Hideout in the forum.

Have you ever wanted the LEGO Group to produce a particular sub-theme for the LEGO Pirates theme?
Well now's your chance to submit suggestions!
We will develop prototype sets for the most popular suggestions and send the concepts to the LEGO Group via the LEGO Ambassador Program.
First checkout the Project Overview thread and then...

The Battle of Mollwitz
EB member Woody64 was kind enough to show us this splendid brickfilm by Flickr user cash.lego. The brickfilm was exquisitely done with great techniques and effects. Even the landscapes are aesthetically well done. Not to mention that the minifigures in brickfilm are world-class.
Go watch and comment on the Battle of Mollwitz in the forum!
