It looks like two wheels?!? I am liking the creative use of the WW gun, there is another few threads in the castle topic with creative WW guns.

Now these arches I just love!?! A snot Lagoon Lockup great find, I am sure Phes would love to see this!

As for posting pictures you can deep link them and it is not that hard to do here is the tutorial, btw we often post pictures of others creations, just as long as

a. we declare it a find and not our own.

b. some attempt is made to identify the maker.

c. we try and get in touch with the maker.

d. we are not to critical on the MOC just because the MOC'er is not here.

No written law, just what I have picked up lately...

The profile name is porschecm2... well worth flicking through his other pages. I don't recognise any of his avatars

Very cool, the bricks look very good as well as the barrel. I would love to see LEGO release something as good as this. Here's the original if anyone hasn't seen it. 6267-1.jpg

A good improvement from the original Lagoon Lockup!

If Lego comes back with pirates it's sets like these I would love to see.

I also like the backgrounds added to the pics. This is a very talented builder!

Wow, what a great remake! :thumbup:

I wish TLC would make 'm like this in the possible new line. :pir-wub:

The barrel appears to made out off 4 hockepucks, those are 2x2 studs and just as thin...

The builder is Chris Malloy also known as porschecm2 over at Classic Castle. I'm not sure if he's registered here but he is a regular over there. This MOC has actually been frontpaged over at Forbbiden Cove. I've always been a fan of this set overhall concept as I think it's a great way to pay homage to a classic set. This is a real beauty that really brings back memories. It captures everything great about the original while taking it to a new level.

The barrel with the gun and elastic bands is really inventive. I also like the grey tooth that has been used as a shark's fin. The best part is that the MOC is about the same size as the original, yet it manages to take it to an entirely different level. It truly is a nice piece of work.

Thanks for the comments, everyone! I had a lot of fun making this MOC.

The barrel technique is indeed 4 hockey pucks and 3 rubber bands.

What a great idea for a MOC PorcheCm2! :thumbup:

I really like all of the improvements you've made on this MOC. :pir-classic:

Great work Cm2 and good find HMS243.

I've added this MOC to the Military Section of the Land-based MOCs Index.

Lagoon Lockup is in my top 5 favourite sets! I particularly like how you've improved the yellow brickwork to make it resemble the sandstone which appears in colonial masonry.

The presentation is also marvelous, taking that extra effort to remove the background and insert something more fitting has been well worth it. Chris, do you happen to be a graphic designer?
