“6263 Imperial Outpost Redesigned” by Robinson

Saturday, October 11th, 2014 Photo of "6263 Imperial Outpost Redesigned" by Robinson

This MOC dates back to 2015 around the time the LEGO Group was releasing a new wave of Pirate sets so the following description is now out of date. So don’t get too excited by the first sentence, because at the time of updating this blog post, no official return of LEGO Pirates has been announced.

With the eminent return of LEGO Pirates, we’re starting to see more and more classic pirate sets redesigned, and they’re truly works of art! This one, done by Robinson is particularly amazing because it’s instantly recognizable as set #6263, however it exhibits advanced build techniques, as well as more realistic colors.

Ah yes, “more realistic colors” because an artificial tan colour must be more true to the colour of real world forts than the traditional white of the classic Soldier and Imperial Guard sets. Surely? Well NAY! It depends upon the materials used to construct the fort.  A common practice within the colonies of the British Empire was to construct buildings using red bricks and cover them in a coat of clay which may or may not be painted.   So the exterior of these buildings could vary depending upon the colour the dried clay when dried, or colour of the paint, hence why in the original sets, we see printed wall pieces in white and yellow with patches of red bricks.

Mark of Falworth has shared another one of his great creations! This time in the form of a diorama, Battle in Buccaneer Bay depicts an intense battle for the ship. There is some great effects such as cannon fire and varying colors of the beaches water.

There’s too much detail to see in one picture, so go check it out in the forum or his flickr album!

Colonial Harbor Scene by Maydayartist

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

Maydayartist has created this gorgeous masterpiece he calls Colonial Harbor Scene. There’s a lot of huge buildings in this MOC, as well as a large ship you can see if you follow the link to the forums. The cobblestone street is my personal favorite part, but there are many great designs throughout! Even the Photoshop images are stunning.

I implore you to head over to the forum and check out what he’s built!

The Falls of Skara Kikos by Takkata

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

First time poster Takkata  has shared this massive creation The Falls of Skara Kikos. It depicts some stunning rock creations and great use of color to add realism. The bridges are a nice touch as are all the creatures scattered throughout the scene. The hut in the center utilizes some creative build techniques and almost resembles something from the Ewok Village. His flickr page even has a time lapse video of this build.

The Courtroom from the 18th Century by Dzoni90

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

Floating around the forum lately has been this beautiful scene, The Courtroom from the 18th Century. It was created by user Dzoni90 and his brother. The statues in this scene are very fun, as is the second level with all the onlookers. It’s a perfect use of the Collectible Minifigure Series 9 Judge, but there’s also some other great uses of minifigures from the past.

First MOC: Halia by LtFalcon

Sunday, June 1st, 2014

Eurobrick member LtFlacon has completed his first MOC and has uploaded some images for us to take a gander at. While the name of the ship is still a work in progress, he’s tentatively named it Halia. Some good effort went into making this ship, as it has all the necessities of a ship on par with something TLG would release themselves. The crew is also very diverse as it sports a great collection of new parts and some from different pirate eras, they all work together very well.

“The HMS Lily” by HELLOEARTHLING

Thursday, May 15th, 2014 Photo of "The HMS Lily" by HELLOEARTHLING

HELLOEARTHLING has shared his MOC of the Armada Flagship, outfitted to sleep a crew of double the original! It’s a tight squeeze inside for the 6 crewmen, but it holds a very diverse and interesting group of seamen. There is some clever decoration inside the ship, and a truly unique figurehead, I can’t say that I’ve ever seen one like it before!

More detail pics are available on Flickr. Also a bit more history on the HMS Challenger, which I think was super cool.

I should make a proper warship next!

Eurobricks user Swan Dutchman has uploaded his 1.5 year completed project, “De Ruyter.” He has based the color scheme off the USS Constitution and it sports a fully decorated cabin and deck. It’s obvious a lot of work went into creating this masterful ship, even the sails were hand sewn! To complete his project Swan Dutchman has edited some marvelous photos, giving the ship a stunning background.

Star Wars Figbarf

Flickr user Adam Dodge has posted this creative picture of pirate figures meant to represent characters from the Star Wars universe. It’s a great idea and well executed, as any Star Wars fan should be able to identify who the figures represent. He has incorporated pieces from classic pirates all the way to pieces from Pirates of the Caribbean and even other themes. If you check out his photostream he also has some other great creations.

Small Soldiers’ Outpost by Mestari

Small Soldiers' Outpost

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.
