Shiver me timbers! LEGO pirate ship be ready to set sail, me hearty

Arrrrrr, ’tis time to set sail and plunder some lesser vessels with Jerome Kloou and his fantastic LEGO pirate ship, La Saignante. This galleon has three masts, some impressive rigging, and cloth sails. She is displaying the Jolly Roger and has 14 cannons, so not a ship to be taken on lightly. There is no-one in the crow’s nest at the moment so all the pirates must be ashore drinking rum and spending their booty.

Jerome has added some wonderful details, with those 14 cannons and a ‘below deck’ prison cell for naughty pirates who are caught eating extra rations or stealing some of the Captain’s treasure for their own pockets.

The crane is functional and can move up and down, or left and right, to transfer the stolen booty from the ship to the shore. It seems as though the lookout has ‘dropped his pretzel’ from the crows nest earlier …that’s not an official pirate knot.

LEGO Zombie Pirate Ghost Batman!

In case you didn’t quite catch that the first time… LEGO ZOMBIE PIRATE GHOST BATMAN!

We don’t often cover minifig-only “builds”. However, this piece of inspired lunacy by Roman was too good to pass up. Besides, as Andrew (our illustrious founder and Editor-in-Chief) occasionally reminds us, The Brothers Brick originally started as a minifig blog.


Who’d have thought a Pirate Batman and a Ninjago Ghost figure would come together so perfectly. I demand a whole series of undead pirate versions of Batman characters. Vampire Cap’n Joker ahoy!

Pirates Paradise

Eli Willsea and Grant Davis built this incredible Pirate scene for BrickCon this year. All their hard work paid off as they took home the trophy for Best Pirate creation. The layout is loaded with fun details. But the best part of it is a functional waterfall that “flows” with bricks. I was very glad that they got that working. It’s a very cool and unusual feature!

Check out this time-lapse video to see how they built it and to see the waterfall in action.

It’s the Beard that Makes the Pirate

While this pirate model by Dylan Mievis (sparkytron) is top-notch all around, it’s the face and beard that really sell it. There are good parts usages, and then there are ones that are crazy and perfect, and using the large constraction fig head from Chima’s Laval for a pirate face is absolutely in the brilliant category.

A Pirate’s Paradise

Mark and Steven Erickson (AKA Mark of Falworth and Brother Steven) have concocted a lovely little pirate lair. The rock work is crisp and I especially like the different trees and foliage. Definitely a nice bit of work on the part of the brothers. I am wondering what is hiding behind the big boulder in the middle. Inquiring minds must know!
