Oh my gosh! This is amazing! You've proven yourself again being a MOC expert!!
I really like the roofings, it seems to be you always invent new techniques for them. :pir-classic:
There are so much nice details in it, every time I look at this I discover something new.
Your animals are great too, the goats and birds...I like them.  :pir-blush:
The jetty and sinking dinghy are nicely executed, along with that guy in the barrel.  :pir-tongue:
I also really like the barrel the guy is carrying to the dinghy. Nice technique!

Overall a very, very nice creation. As always!  :thumbup:

Another amazing MOC from SlyOwl! This is just outstanding and you've outproven yourself once again. I really like the way the MOC is designed and the roofs for each of the houses. :wub: I really like the guy getting thrown out the window and the chicken. I'm interested in how you fit the face and the hand in the barrel........how did you get the hand in there without causing it to fall inside the barrel? Thanks.

Oh yes, another lovely SlyOwl MOC to enjoy!

I love all of the action going on here, and the buildings have excellent design. The angle of the land is just superb as well.

Beautiful work!

I love the merry chaos.

The color of the building on the left goes well together. Everytime I create a house out of red and white, it always ends up looking like a clinic/medical facility. I noticed the "ninja" on the roof. I like the brick pig, though may I ask, why is it grey? And is that a severed hand behind the guy?  :pir_laugh2:

I see you have a lot of brick built critters. I love both the goat and the chicken. I like how you used the epaulet. And an accordion(sp?)! Silly guy in the middle. Hogging all the hats.

I also like the mottled effect on the structure to the left. And the roof? Are those technic axles? I noticed that the walls aren't always laid out straight. Very nice detail. Is that a midget on the cannon?  :pir_laugh2: And whose head is that? Poor guy.

Chaotic MOC full of life and detail. Great Job!

I stand in shock and awe.

This is absolutely amazing! :wub:

The details, the perfect design - I´m speechless.

A very lively diorama, hilarious and beautiful detailed too.  :thumbup:
The buildings look great with fine facades and very creative roofs,
the color scheme works very well and the angled layout´s pretty smart.
The animals´re very nice too, although the pig´s a bit scary. An omnivorous little beast indeed.  :pir_laugh2:

SlyOwl, this is brilliant. The level of detail here is astounding! You even went to the extent of putting a guy in with an accordian! I bet this is one of those MOCs that you tell everyone DON'T BUMP IT. :pir-tongue:

Thanks for sharing this Sly, you are a brilliant MOCer!

Dear SlyOwl,

this is great stuff all round!
Great use of parts and techniques.
All kind of action going on.  
For me the firing gun is the finishing touch.
Congrats on making the frontpage, well deserved. :thumbup:
Keep it up.  :pir-classic:
Kind regards,

Absolute fantastic, SlyOwl :thumbup:

You've build something really new in Pirate-History, a red-white Caribbean house (isn't it)...
It looks so beautiful and reminds me a bid of ''LEGO Paradisa''.
The other parts of the creation are awesome, too.
Especially the rounded wood-bar and the nice SNOT water.
So thanks for sharing!

This reminds me of the layout of a small part of the lego batman game on ps2. Just the gate in the corner with the tree and then the fences off side of left building... actually this is Very similar to that layout... coincidence... I think NOT!

:pir-sweet:  Looks like another magnificent MOC by SlyOwl! I have no criticisms to make, man, as usual everything is perfectly designed, specially the legs effects of some of the MFs, the rooofs, the animals... and don't forget all the gags around!  :pir-laugh:

You're a real MOC master. Bravo!

BTW, I wonder what the guy is doing with the pig in the last photo...  :pir-look:
