Useful Pirate Pieces from other Themes?

Really? I never knew that...

Hi there Frank! Do you still have this MOC? Because I have some ideas that might make it look like a decent cutter/longboat.

No, but it would be easy to rebuild.

Has anyone considered the Clikits sea shells and star fish pieces. I was waiting for a set to show up at a local store so I could have a look, but it looks like it's never going to happen. I'll have to bricklink them if they are not too expensive.

Wow, Frank I am glad you found us over here! Your page is probably one of the longest standing book marks I have had!

I don't suppose you will be running an ESPG any time soon? :)

Does this hull piece come in brown?

Obviously I could look for myself but that would be too easy X-D

No it does not!

Are you sure? There was a larger row boat in the Adventurers Amazon Ruins set. I think it might be that one in brown.

Ooops, guess I should have read the second page...

If it is, it would probably be good for B's governor's mansion. ;-)

If there would be a white version, then it would be useful.

Or maybe I could "paintbrush" it :-D

Yeah, read that second page! Right, there is a brown larger boat, but it is not the same part as that orange colored one.

It is availible in white at brick link.

Then nobody has to paint any bricks. ;-)

Can get a couple out of the UK for 0.45 USD each.

Indeed, they would be useful for both.

And since I plan to build an Napoleonic city, they will be useful anyhow.

I'll try to include some in my next BL orders.

I have made some good progress on my governors mansion. Pictures will come soon.

Thanks for the BL links!

Hello,

Are there any current sets/themes that have lots of pieces that could be used to build ships and forts? Maybe the Vikings, Castle, or Indiana Jones. I want to start buying classic Pirate sets, but they are just too pricey. I'm looking for some alternatives to Bricklink. Thanks.

Tony

Let's see. There is of course the Indiana Jones line with a couple sets with some useful elements:

7624 Indiana Jones Jungle Duel (contains cutlass)

7627 Temple of Akator (contains skeleton with conquistador helmet, cutlass skeleton heads and native warriors)

Castle line:

7036 Dwarves Mine

7040 Dwarves' Mine Defender (a cheaper set)

7048 Troll Warship

7979 Castle Advent Calendar

They all contain one or more useful pieces. To mention are the beards on the dwarves and the civilian lady (Advent Calendar). The Troll Warship set contains of course parts that can be used for making ships, etc. such as hull pieces, masts, barrels and a small rowing boat.

Since the Viking line is merely out the door, it ain't worth mentioning since I do not consider it a current line anymore. Same goes for the Aquaraiders Shipwreck set. That set is history and already becoming very hard to find nowadays (in toy stores). It is however available on the internet of course.

I might have forgotten other sets but this is what I can come up with.

How about some sweet looking bottles of perfume rum!

I've bought a few in my most recent B-L order and was going to see if they'll be closer to MF scale than the Flask.

These were included with Hogwarts in "Pearl Gold"

Don't forget the "Belville Wall, Door 1 x 4 x 11 1/3 Arched Top"

Loads of nice parts to use I see, I'm ordering some bottles if I can find some. The silver bucket would be nice too.

Thanks for the info! :thumbup:
