Capt. Thomas Foolery lives up to his name with this amusing scene, in which several ladies of questionable character try to lure a pirate away from his online pursuits. Ladies: “Come back to bed, Cap’n!” Pirate: “As soon as I finish reading the Brothers Brick and posting to Eurobricks.” Yarrr! A wise choice indeed, matey!

Avast, me mateys! If ye be lookin’ for LEGO on the high seas, you’ve found the place where X marks the spot. Here be a treasure trove of sailing ships, garrisons full of imperial scalawags, and other such nautical nonsense. Walk that plank and dive into the wonderful world of LEGO Pirates.
Gerard Joosten (aka Elephant Knight) just posted his latest in a line of large, detailed sailing ships. Christened The Lynx, it is a beautiful example of a minifig scale Clipper Schooner. Gerard agreed to sit down with me and answer some questions about the ship and how he builds. TBB: Thanks for taking the time Continue reading →
Philip Stark (Erdbeereis1) constructed a fort by the sea for the redcoats to chill and build sand castles. I love the water texture made with double slope pieces topped off with clear cheese.
In time for the movie’s release next month, the new LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean sets are now available from the LEGO Shop online. 4195 Queen Anne’s Revenge has 1,094 pieces and comes with 7 minifigs, including Blackbeard, Jack Sparrow, and Angelica. It looks like a great pirate ship, but I’m most excited by a Continue reading →
Tommy Williamson, I salute you. These Miniland figures from Pirates of the Caribbean include an amazing level of detail. Jack Sparrow is nice, but Captain Barbossa is awesome.
New builder Detroitika has certainly made an impact with his first posted creation, Presidio Cadiz. This is, of course, an entry to Forbidden Cove‘s Jolly Roger Contest–and you’ve got just until the Ides of March to get your entry in. I really like the green design against the white. The whole build just works for Continue reading →
I recently finished re-reading Treasure Island for the first time in more than twenty years, and went looking for some Pirate LEGO to blog. Rod Gillies (2 Much Caffeine) was happy to oblige, with his many entries for the Jolly Roger Contest over at Forbidden Cove. I particularly like the light blue water accenting the Continue reading →
Competition is heating up over at Forbidden-Cove‘s Jolly Roger Contest. Matthew Hurt steps into the competition with this fortress, prepared to defend against the oncoming enemy.
And the first entry out of the gate for the Jolly Roger Contest over at Forbidden Cove is a simply gorgeous rendition of the Flying Dutchman–barnacles and all. Rod Gillies delights us all with a ship that looks like it was rather eat me than sail me somewhere.
Forbidden Cove is proud to announce their second Jolly Roger Contest! You can check out their fantastic prizes and categories here–and head on over to their forums to see a list of rules. In addition to the traditional Pirate-type categories, to celebrate the upcoming Disney movie and subsequent LEGO line, there are five dedicated Pirates Continue reading →
I’ve never seen work by Henrik Hoexbroe but I’ve definitely been missing out. His 1:50 model of the Cutty Sark is one of the most beautiful and accurate LEGO sailing vessels I have ever seen. Most notably his mixing of studs-out sculpting and other techniques to create fluid shapes is a textbook demonstration of what Continue reading →
This gorgeous sea-going beauty belongs to Gerard Joosten and I was fortunate enough to handle it at BrickCon 2010. Christened the HMS Brunswick, it weighs in at 124 studs in length, 2.5 feet high and sports a full rig. Most impressive! In the Adult Lego Fan Community there is a rather famous acronym. It is Continue reading →
Remind me never to go to Azaghal‘s private island for dinner. I’m not quite sure I could stomach what’s on the menu. Not at all. Bananas in soup is just too much for me.
Chris Malloy just posted this incredible battle at the bottom of the sea. It’s quite a lovely build. The lighting is exceptional.
Forbidden Cove is celebrating their birthday with a fabulous contest with particularly shiny prizes! Chris Malloy (porschecm2) has certainly stepped up with his vignette, The Pirate Aura. I think the whole thing just pulls together nicely, what with the water reflecting the wall and the terrifying face staring back at ye!
