Very Amusing!

I love the way the Shipwrecked Pirates are looking at each other in confusion!  :pir-tongue:

Good Work! :thumbup:

Are the sailors going to be sacrificed to industrial automatons?  :pir-tongue:

:pir-laugh:  This is great! A small detail I like is the pirate using the chest as a floatation device!  :pir-grin:

Way to go!  :thumbup:

This is funny on so many levels :pir-laugh:  :thumbup: .  But the islanders don't seem to have "eyes", how do they navigate about :pir-look: ?

I would never have thought of that. Great work. Usually I don't like space/pirate MOC's but this one is quite humerous.

Thank you very much for your comments, everybody!  :pir-classic:

In fact I had the idea for this little vignette trying to make some new mini-figures for a MOC I'm working on and mixing all the MFs I had I found it would be funny to see a native/astromech droid  :pir-tongue:

I find this hilarious!   Particularly the way the pirates turn to look at each other as if to say "WHAT THE HELL???"

Maybe this would make an interesting frontpage news item.

A really amusing MOC indeed! Congrats!  :thumbup:

I also like the way the pirates are looking at each other! Somehow the whole scene also reminds me of science-fiction movies: a hole in time caused by a storm that was far from being ordinary. The pirates got into that hole and landed in the future. Or maybe it was not a time hole but a hole which took them to another universe.

Hey nice idea! :pir-classic: I never thought at that, really...

You gave me an excellent idea for future MOCs! "Pirate and MFs from other times encounters on the third kind!" LOL  :pir-laugh:

THANKS FOR VIEWING! :pir_yoda:

Interesting work Mr. Bluebard.
I never knew astromech droids have been around for that long  :pir-tongue:
Suppose i could start incorporating them into my MOCs :pir-laugh:

This fine MOC has been added to row 10 of the vig portion in Index of Land-Based MOCs.
