Bravo! I think that this is an excellent MOC! I really love the highly detailed rock wall, the 100% covered in smooth plates / tiles water, and the creative concept of cannon-powered jet skis! :pir-classic:

Usually, I suggest for MOCs to be historically accurate at all times, but I think I will stop suggesting that.

However, there is but one teeny suggestion for this. I suggestion for the handlebar railing to be made up of smooth plates, as no Minifig would want the railing to be bumpy.

This is a very good entry! I really like your idea, cannon + seat = jet-ski! Your rock face is nice, I might suggest possibly adding some greenery to it, but the space in a medium entry is limited so that could be difficult. You've done the water nicely too! I also really like the way you jet-ski's are designed - the colour white works really well here.

And it is nice to see the addition of some familiar faces as spectators!

Great work, and good luck! :thumbup:

Thanks :pir-blush: I tried to make it creative as possible, at first I thought of putting the hole cannon piece on it but I couldn't fit it :pir-tongue:

Very original idea and you build some nice speeders and scenery for it as well. Although I expected something involving barrels :pir_laugh2:

Good to see that peace between the factions is restored and I can confirm: I was there!

I'm glad everyone likes this! And so far no creative critics.

Is mine too good? I don't think so. But if it is, thanks for being honest

Very original idea. I like the idea of the pirates recycling their canon to make something cool like that! Great great MOC!

Good luck with the competition!

Brilliant job General! I always love to see EB sigfigs used in MOCs, especially when I'm part of it. You made me happy. :pir_laugh2:

I love your idea, the cliff is excellent. Perhaps some better fences above it? They look a bit cheap. :pir-wink:

Good luck in the contest! :monkey:

Yeah, I was a bit i a hurry, I wasnt the one who built them :pir-wink:

Obviously Bluecoat Built. :pir_laugh2:

Actually I captured Redcoat spies and made them build it :pir-devil:

:pir_laugh2: that is a great concept!

If only someday they let us ride cannons off to the sunset... :pir-tongue:

I absolutely enjoyed seeing this entry, most of all - its creativity! The idea is very well implemented, great job!

I'd most definitely give you bonus points for:

+ your creativity (obviously!)

+ the wonderful SNOTty water & cliff (don't add any plants to it, it looks much more on the "raw" side that way!)

+ the flames look spot-on and so do the trans-clear round plates - perfect approach!

+ the inclusion of C-P members, funny as ever (hint hint: I'd love to ride one of these babies one day... perhaps CGH and I could go head to head if you lend us the jets :D)

What I'd suggest as possible improvements:

- the jets look a tad bit too modern, which is not bad -- but I feel that if you used brown pieces instead of white ones, those would look as if they were made of wood... which would make this whole thing even more absurd & funny!

- while I really like the small rock that the redcoat is jumping off of (and its outlines in the water!), I feel that if the jumper had been positioned at a slightly better angle (upwards, for example), that would have enhanced the sense of action.

- the photos!!! Please, even if you don't update this MOC in any way (it's a strong contender as it is already!), just upload those photos to a different website - photobucket and pict come to mind as good alternatives, if you're not a fan of flickr. MOCpages has resized and compressed your pics in a terrible manner and your entry looks far less appealing precisely because of the way the photos are displayed. Please please upload them someplace else - you'll instantly notice the difference yourself!
