Occasionally, the Classic Pirates venture from the comfort of the LEGO Pirates Forum to explore uncharted waters… so this time we’re visiting Neverland, home port of Peter Pan and Captain Hook.
Angela Chung has made good use of 71012 Minifigures The Disney Series to build this nifty vignette, which depicts a duel between the two characters while a hungry crocodile hopes Captain Hook drops by for lunch.
Peter Pan and Captain Hook are fighting, crocodile awaiting for food, as in the Peter Pan show
Which Peter Pan “show” we may never know, but those familiar with the fiction will be aware the crocodile has a taste for Hook’s flesh ever since Pan amputated his hand. This is a kid’s story, by the way!
So what was Hook’s name originally?
It’s no secret his first name is “James”, perhaps a play on explorer “James Cook”, but what was his surname before the hook?
According to Peter Pan author and creator, J. M. Barrie:
“Hook was not his true name. To reveal who he really was would even at this date, set the country in a blaze.”
That statement was made well over a hundred years ago and Barrie has long since departed without divulging further, but that hasn’t deterred others from taking stabs at naming him. In the television series “Once Upon a Time” Hook’s real name was “Killian Jones” – surely not a play on adventurer “Indiana Jones“? Well, it’s definitely not Captain Redbeard!
Part of a larger Picture…
Angela didn’t stop with Peter Pan, she’s also built vignettes based on other minifigs in the series, including; Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, Donald and Daisy Duck, and Mr Incredible and Syndrome form The Incredibles.
And then she’s compiled them into one colourful diorama…
Now if only there were some Imperial Guards from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise…
When asked if she’d built vignettes for every Disney Minifigure, Angela replied:
Yes, have built 10 vignettes for 18 minifigures 🙂
They are mostly a scene from Disney movie.
Glad that you enjoyed 😉
Spot the minifigures used:
Uh oh! Looks like Ariel and Ursula have missed out on featuring in a vignette… well, at least for now. But do you want to change that?
About the Builder…
Angela Chung was unknown to the Classic Pirates until we stumbled across her vignette on Pinterest. To our utter delight, we discovered she builds regularly, and shares updates to a Flickr account full of colourful creations.
