Pirates of the Caribbean Black Pearl

Check out this is a custom-made kit.  I modified a complete LEGO Black Seas Barracuda kit to replicate the Black Pearl in the movie series Pirates of the Carribean.   I spent a good bit of time finding all the parts I needed to build this -- some of them are quite expensive and hard to find.  This is definitely a collector's item.  BTW it's for sale on eBay

Ah, a real BLACK seas barracuda!

Why do you sell such a nice MOC?
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

The build a frigate tutorail!

Amazing black pearl! I love pirates of the carribean until the plot got really complicated and the movies were three hours long! X-D

If you get a good price for this one will you create another for auction?

Images on eBay auction pages are only temporary so we'll need to upload them to another location otherwise we'll have broken image links in a few months.  Phred or Mr Tiber can take care of that.

Very cool...

It's smart thinking to try sell something like this while POTC is still well known but at the same time it's a shame to lose such an MOC.  So long as we have preserved photos.  Did ou know there are personalized POTC faces and torsos available in the library that could have complemented your model, perhaps next time add those and it would sell for more.

Done! *y*

Nice work on your MOD jcole208!
It is too bad about the brown hull |-/ , but oh well. :-)
Hope your auction goes well. *y*

Hope you don't mind,
but i've copied the images you've provided into our 'pirate-forum' album at photobucket.

Also, i've added this ship to the Index of MOC Ships,
and i have the thumb-link going to the photobucket folder.

That is truly amazing! *y*

It looks very good in black, just like the black pearl! Hope you get lots of money for your Ebay auction!

BTW, I like your sails very much. :-)

You sure did a good job on this ship, but I wouldn't buy it.
I'm no fan of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie.
I hope you get a good price.

Haven't decided.  POTC might not be popular for very long.

Aye, but what if the person who came second in the bidding still wants one?
Nice job, although IMHO it's a little too black - I made one like it a while back and (a) the dust shows up soooo much, and (b) it is a little plain to look at - no colour! I was bidding on one just like it a year ago (BSB based too) and it went for $240, although there was an SES thrown in - ye can expect a good price!

Very nice model. It's got an official LEGO look to it. Great job!  *y*

But please, don't advertise it on my MOC Pages.  :-D  Thanks!  ;-)

I decided to leave the decks gray, so that breaks up the black a bit and dust won't show up on it as much.
