There’s many reasons why it’s called the ‘forbidden’ island, and builder Cube Brick shares a few of them with this tribal encounter.
It looks like the sailor barely escaped being sacrificed to whatever these guys worship. However, I’m still on the island admiring the fantastic wet and dry sand job. I love the shells and the hermit crab!
Interestingly, Cube Brick combined Classic LEGO island natives with new Aztec warrior minifigures. Doing so really helps the narrative that this is a dangerous place, especially with the skeleton in the cage and the de-armed figure on the altar! Yikes!
Ever wonder what happened after Boba Fett and others fell into the Sarlacc Pit? Jabba sort of hinted there would be a thousand years of slow digestion but according to Cube Brick these LEGO denizens of the pit are having the time of their lives.
Below the sand and the menacing toothy pit lies a lively cantina scene. Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes belts out the only tune they know while a Gungan serves up hard drinks (or blue milk) for the less inebriated. A Twi’lek tantalizes patrons with a pole dance floor show.
And just when a thousand years of slow digestion seems like it couldn’t get any more enticing, the whole shebang shifts to accommodate mood lighting. Now everyone looks totally swanky! Bottoms up, weirdos!
