Captain LaRose's Return to the Court

What lies behind that shipwreck?

Eurobricks member shmails brings us an intriguing Pirate scene.  One side has a seemingly-deserted shipwreck…the other has a secret cave where a meeting of the Brethren Court is in progress!  This is especially worth checking out for the excellent (all female!) custom minifigures.  You can see lots of pictures on flickr here.

Tiny Black Pearl

It's nigh uncatchable...and also tiny!

Eurobricks member Sebeus Iniwum gives us a few adorable itty-bitty ships, the most exciting of which is the tiny Black Pearl!  The shape of the ship is captured charmingly in miniature, with clever use of pieces like the Collectible Mini figure stand.  It’s a great little MOC that deserves a close study.
