Over the years we have witnessed our share of Imperial forts, ports and outposts, in a myriad of shapes and sizes. All of them share a commonality; they’re astoundingly beautiful, and this latest entry is no exception!
Meet Captain Filibboo, a hero who embarked upon resurrecting the LEGO Pirates theme single-handedly through his debut LEGO Ideas submission. Like many LEGO Pirates builders before him, he discovered that our beloved theme also requires the backing of 10,000 supporters, and in an alarmingly tight deadline… lest his submission be buried in the failed Ideas graveyard for all eternity. Yikes!
Don’t let it happen! Support this Outpost on LEGO Ideas right now!
When I was a child, LEGO Pirates were the toy number one for me. Now, 30 years later, the fascination with the Pirates still persists, which led me to create this set.
The first version was created in spring 2020 when COVID19 forced us to stay at home. It took me 3 months the create a digital version inside the BrickLink Studio 2.0. Another 3 months later I started building it.
It was really fun to build it in real. 3D rendering is cool, but real life pictures are even better.
This creation is my first LEGO Ideas project and it would be great if it came to life. Let’s bring back the Pirates!
If you see a creation like this and think If only I could build something like that… listen up matey, you can! It takes a mere 30 years of planning, one tumultuous global lockdown, 6 months of hard labour and voilà, you’ll have your awesome MOC. Just be sure it’s Pirate-themed, as you don’t want to waste that much time on, say… LEGO Friends? Go! Start planning your masterpiece today!
The Gorgeous Build
The Future: Pirate Modular Sets
Captain Filibbooo continues:
This Outpost was the start of a “try” to create a modular pirate “scenery”.
First module, Pt.1 of treasure island, is finished and already attached to my Imperial Outpost.
More is in planning. At the moment I’m working on Pt.2 of treasure island.
Not Familiar with LEGO Ideas?
LEGO Ideas is a website that allows users to submit creations with the aim of becoming official LEGO sets – the kind you can buy! Original designers receive 1% commission on royalties and ten free LEGO sets from those currently on the market. But to be a contender for official set status, each idea must garner 10,000 supporters.
That’s where YOU come in! LEGO Pirate fans must unite to support another blue coat Soldier submission and propel it over the 10K finish line… whilst avoiding the relenting doom of the LEGO Ideas Team’s personal Bermuda Triangle, more commonly known as the “review process”. Go to the project submission webpage and click the support button to cast your vote!
About the Builder…
Sometime during the pandemic of 2020, as the global population reeled from the threat of extinction, it dawned upon Captain Filibboo that life was too fleeting for meaningless pursuits. So he vowed to fulfill his days with meaning, and chose to build LEGO Pirates sets.
Fast forward to 2022… two major phenomena have transpired; the human race survived annihilation and Captain Filibboo surfaced from the murky depths to make an impressive entrance in the LEGO Pirates MOCs forum.
Before we part ways, the Classic Pirates invite you to support this design (oh wait, we’ve said that already) and share your thoughts inside the LEGO Pirates forum – would this fort make a good LEGO Pirate set? What do you like about it? What could be done differently? Would you add more cannons?
