Bang and the dirt is gone! Well in this case bang and his head is gone. Brickbeard thrives on punishing poor soldiers he captures, but perhaps this time he has gone a bit too far. Trapped inside barrel of a cannon ready to be fired, the soldier will have to make his escape before Brickbeard lights the fuse!
Head Shot, pretty self explanatory
Vig-Lego93 has produced a little vignette for us to marvel at. Although the concept is simple, the MOC has been designed in an interesting way and also has added small details to give a little more ‘uniqueness’ to the scene.
Battling a mighty whirlpool and then finding yourself in an underwater paradise filled with riches galore. Sounds great – well, at least that’s what the scurvy crew of a small vessel thought. However when they tried to take the riches of Charyblantis, they soon found themselves having to escape from pretty angry undersea beasts.
Yargh, there be treasure under the sea!
SlyOwl delivers us another outstanding MOC. Jam packed with hidden treasure, the aquatic city of Charyblantis is certainly an awe inspiring creaton. Filled with details and undersea warriors, the MOC is split in two, a top section and an underwater section. Both house great building skills and techniques. The interesting name as some of you may have guessed derives from Charybdis, a whirlpool in Greek mythology, and Atlantis.

Yar! I be needin’ ya to row me ta Cuba ya limey fool! Those are the possible words of the pirate aboard that forced the poor soldier to row him to Cuba. More likely is that fact that he has a cannon shoved up his nose.
He has a cannon shoved up his nose!
‘Take Me to Cuba’ by Crimson Wolf is both funny and imaginative featuring humorous details and what looks to be a great background story line. The MOC is well complimented by a neat Photoshop background.
