Eurobricks member Romance14 has shot a brief but very entertaining and surprisingly innovative review of this classic set from 1989. There’s some really nice stop-motion animation and a few fun shots of the set in action. Well worth a look!
Sebeus, Classic-Pirates’ resident shipbuilder extraordinaire, has posted this very funny and not at all wildly anachronistic comic in honour of his latest MOC. Guest-starring some of CP’s best and brightest, this comic features everything from life jackets to pizza to arguments about people not looking like their sig figs… Oh, and there’s something about a ship in there as well.
Disco86 has built this sterling diorama of a blue coat soldier fort, with its own ship to boot! Inspired by such sets as 6276 Eldorado Fortress and 6280 Armada Flagship, this build features some neat interior scenes, some creative use of masonry bricks, and even a seagull or two!
This model was built for the Store Showcase in Wiesbaden (Germany). I decided to build a new theme, and because I always favor to build themes from my childhood I think it was time for some Pirates. But I am also a castle builder and I found these blue-jacket soldiers in the stores figure box, so I wanted to build anything that was like the old Imperial Soldiers sets. I got my inspiration from the sets “Eldorado Fortress” (6276) and the “Armada Flagship” (6280).
Building time: 70 hours
About the Builder…
Disco86 (aka Paul Trach) is one of those builders whose talent is not restricted to any one particular genre. While he has a fondness for Space and Castle (with detours through and Middle Earth), he can easily turn his hand towards other themes and execute equally impressive builds. It’s well worth your time browsing through his Flickr Stream so prepared to be amazed by more of his skilled creations.
Out of the inky black night sails the terrifying, primal Troglodyte, the latest creation from Eurobricks member Dunkleosteus. Built entirely in LDD, the Troglodyte comes complete with three masts, 14 guns, and two massive, LotR-inspired tusks on the prow! Keel-hauling just got a lot scarier!
See lots more pics and comment on Troglodyte in the forums.
Eurobricks member pcvando reviews the classic 6285 Black Seas Barracuda, arguably THE must-have set for any Classic Pirates fan! How does a vintage set like this hold up against modern LEGO standards? Read on to find out!
Eurobricks member Captain Braunsfeld has created this small sloop, very aptly named the Small Green Flying Dutchman. This little darling comes complete with brick-built sails and guns, not to mention her own backstory and a colourful cast of characters to sail her!
Eurobricks member Yawgmoth has created this lovely island hideaway for his merry band of pirates. Inspired by the classic 6273 Rock Island Refuge, this throwback to the glory days of Pirates boasts several detachable sections and a very lovely shipwreck built in to the piece. Not bad for a shipbuilder!
Classic-Pirates’ resident shipbuilder Sebeus I is back on fine form with this lovely update of his schooner bark, the Christine. Of particular note are the functional capstan and custom rigging. May the wind forever be at your back, Sebeus, and may your hull never be breached!
Just in time for Christmas, Eurobricks member Captain Braunsfeld has given us the gift of Pirates. He’s modified the QAR to make her look more realistic, and quite frankly more aesthetically appealing!
