Igor Krainovic and Karlo Toth built a pirates diorama for the Kockice Expo. Not shown in the pic are more ships and islands, which you can see in the full gallery on MOCpages.

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.
I’d certainly call this creation of Zack Milenius‘s an unfortunate meeting of opposing elements. Something tells me the pirates and the soldiers just don’t quite see eye-to-eye on issues. Ownership of this small piece of waterfront property being one of them.
Over the past several weeks I’ve been building gifts to thank various people of my university for the role they’ve played in my undergraduate education at Washington University in St. Louis. The past four years have been an intellectually stimulating journey in my study of arts and sciences and the biology major. At the same Continue reading →
Many people assumed that Crawler Town by Dave DeGobbi was inspired by the book Mortal Engines. That wasn’t the case, but Dave took the book recommendation and turned into his latest LEGO creation, Salthook: Salthook apparently wasn’t populated by pirates in the book, but they certainly lend a sense of whimsy to the thunderous roar Continue reading →
I like the elegant lines, upper hull design and rigging on this Mediterranean Xebec by Tom Jacobs (Bonaparte). It doesn’t hurt that his picture title reminded me of a Camera Obscura song I get stuck in my head.
Wojciech Scrat demonstrates that LEGO sharks seem to be evolving in size — starting with the old-style sharks, continuing with the more recent LEGO Pirates shark, culminating in the LEGO DUPLO shark that rivals megalodon in scale. The compatibility between DUPLO and SYSTEM is a bit of a moot point here, given the dynamic way Continue reading →
Forbidden Cove has posted the winners for their first Jolly Roger Contest! I highly encourage you to head on over and check out the fantastic entries.
Another great large creation by PigletCiamek. I especially love the way he complemented the printed wall pieces by brick building other variations on peeling plaster, creating a more natural decay look throughout the fort. Beyond that, there’s all kinds of great architectural and playable features. See more pictures of Fort Royal on Piglet’s Brickshelf.

This pirate ship by Barney Main (SlyOwl) uses custom sails and ropes to great effect. Don’t forget to take a look at the details on deck and the ornate patterns of the ship in this picture.
Daniel Shehadeh (Sir Regonold) users overlapping, partially pressed-on tiles to create an excellent roof on this Spanish-style building: The crane, little roof on the well, and beams sticking out of the stone walls all add believable detail.
Forbidden Cove’s first major contest, the Jolly Roger, set sail on the 1st of the month and there are some very good pirate creations cruising in. Here is a few of my favorites so far. Dutch Soldier Outpost by Nieks Under the Waves by Elephant_Captain Pirate’s Island by SlyOwl
A neat diorama by Niek Geurts (Nieks www.mrbrick.nl). I don’t know why I get a sense of marshiness from this, but I like it.
I had these on my list to blog today anyway, which happened to coincide with Nannan’s announcement of the 10211 Grand Emporium, which I love. How serendipitous. The first is this stately corner building by Allan (a-corb). The second is this tasty looking pirate ice creamery by Philip Stark (Erdbeeris1). Aaargh! Yummy.
Announced at BrickCon 2009, 10210 Imperial Flagship is now available from the LEGO Shop online. The ship measures 29.5” (75 cm) long and 23.6” (60 cm) tall, and includes 1664 pieces and 9 minifigs. Yes, the cannons do fire.
