It's been almost 20 years since LEGO gave us some non-licensed islander minifigs. The new figure from Collectible Minifigures Series 11 is a great addition to your island family. The new mask is painted with bright colors that go well with the new print on the torso and legs, as well as a new face print including a tribal tattoo.

Studdles knows how to make some nice sails!
Sometimes official LEGO sails can be too pricey for your planned Pirate Ship. Often the most popular alternative is making your own custom sails. Studdles has published a guide to not only making custom sails, but reproducing original LEGO ones!

"Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!"
Matthew Hurt brings us this wonderful bustling port. The ship has arrived and the crew is unloading the goods. The tight design of each building really brings a sense of life to the whole scene. There are many close-up photos to see all the intricate details of the ship, house, and stonework so be sure to click through to the forum.

Temple of the Monkey God
Captain Braunsfeld created this Islander inspired temple to the Monkey Gods! Very nice design, excellent part usage, and monkeys everywhere! Complete with secret hiding place for treasure, under the main statue.

An island paradise? Not likely.
Eurobricks member sweetsha built this amusing island scene to show off his CMF Tiki Warriors, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy it! Of particular note are the snake statue and the adorably carnivorous man-eating plants. These bumbling pirates are definitely in over their heads!

A labour of love
Over two years of research, design, and construction have finally paid off for Eurobricks' own Dread Pirate Wesley, who presents us with his truly stunning 64-gun ship-of-the-line, the HMS Persephone! Composed of some 4000 bricks and 14 custom sails, this magnificent labour of love was definitely worth the effort!

An extremely impressive version of the USS Constitution has been built by Mr. Misty. The white and black hull, rigging, and other various details really make this interpretation of the famous ship stand out.
