Carl Greatrix is a designer for the official Lego games, and his design of the Flying Dutchman for the Lego Pirates of the Caribbean video game shows why he’s the man for the job. Even though this is a render, just about all the parts used are official Lego elements.
Zach Milenius sets the world a blaze with with lovely cottage. I think that is the first time that I’ve ever said that a house on fire was lovely, but it is. The shape really appeals to me.
This sleek pirate starfighter is coming for you and yours. You’ve been warned. LegoDrome unleashed it. Blame him.
Lego.Skrytsson‘s depiction of the Kraken does it great justice. The teeth is just wow.
If any of you get that reference without looking it up, I’ll be shocked. Regardless, Chris Malloy considerably raised the bar in Forbidden Cove’s Seedpart challenge with this piratical sculpture. Chris is one of my favorite builders out there and he hit this one out of the park. Malloy definitely has skillz!
Adding a pirate flag to a big stompy mech just makes it that much more awesome, as Kyle Vrieze (bermudafreze) proves with this gun platform. The white on the legs, red missile tubes, and judicious use of stickers/decals all add little splashes of color.
As you may or may not realize, I’m a total sucker for a pretty tall ship. I suppose it comes with the territory of being raised around boats. Combine LEGO, a pretty ship, and a fabulous display, and it just makes my heart soar.
Luke Hutchinson (Derfel Cadarn)has posted his creation, the Princess Ceinwyn, which happens to combine the three aforementioned things. This is a lovely three-masted ship, and the presentation and base complete the look.
There are good builds and there is good presentation, but they don’t always go together. Chris Malloy has them both, no question about it. With this creation he takes us on a fascinating adventure across an infernal lake, aboard a gloriously improbable craft.
This was built for Forbidden Cove’s monthly seedpart contest.
Sorry, I had to say it. But, honestly, Lolino’s oceanside scene is a knockout. I love the use of legs as water and surf. But they aren’t the only items of interest in this creation. The buildings are also lovely and the use of pistols are brackets is surprising, but it is the birds that really bring this build to life for me. Well played, Lolino!
And now for something completely different. I seldom build anything Pirate and I’ve never tried anything quite like this before. The goofy look on his face appeals to me, so I may have to leave it together for awhile…at least until Talk Like a Pirate Day.
By the way, this was built for Forbidden Cove’s June Seedpart Contest.
