Just imagine this place with some Pirates searching for a treasure while being hunted by a group of angry islanders....

This MOC was not build to be a Pirate set, find details on the MOC page of the creator here.

Not my creation, something I found on MOC Pages!

What do you mean "imagine this place with some Islanders"?  I can see the Islanders hiding in the jungle - can't everyone else?   :pir-grin:

Well the rock formation and waterfall are exceptional in all areas especially top and bottom riples we can see.  The only con is the lack of minifigures but thats a small price to pay for such an awesome MOC.  The trees and folliage are also well placed and make it an overall spectacular build.

This is an absolute work of art.

I'm always inspired to try similar things by such wonderful creations but mine always turn out pants.  :pir-hmpf_bad:

It would indeed make an excellant setting for a pirate moc.

Wow, that's absolutely stunning :pir-wub:
This MOC is ridiculously realistic - one really has to look before realising that it is in fact Lego. The rock formation is fantastic, very South American-esque, although I'm not entirely sure why. The shrubbery is great too, the growth in the corners of rock and above the cliff faces is very realistic. Finally, the waterfall is just superb! The effect of the splashing water (can't think of a better description..  :pir-blush: ) is stunning, and the water ripples work very well indeed.

Looking through the page, I notice another nice creation, good for hypothetical Islanders too.

Thanks for the great find Bonaparte, Islander or not  :pir-sweet:

It must be a busy cave...

Anyhow...

According to the Brothers Brick this MOC is actually astory called Apocalypsis which is divided into three episodes.  It was created by a fellow named Mark Kelso.

The story can be found on MOCpages.

Mark Kelso did a simply marvelous and sheer brilliant work with that, one of the most inspiring LEGO landscapes I´ve ever seen!  *oh2*

This is truly a masterpiece. Such detail, one of those MOCs that hardly looks like Lego! It's awesome! Great find, Bonaparte, and kudos to Mark Kelso!

I saw this on MOCpages and my jaw dropped. So realistic, it's almost a sculpture. Amazing work.

My new favourite MOC to date. I love that, it's so well built that it's not even funny. Love the "comic" a lot! Yes I can see islanders hiding in the forest, YARR YE ISLANDERS! :pir-laugh:

Somehow that's an ideal setting for a 'Jurassic Park' or 'King Kong' theme.

I can only have wet dreams about an enlarged MOC like that with a forest, mountain, bigger cave and a sailing ship in the bay.

But seriously, really good, the dude falling from the waterfall is simply yet ingenious. The rock formations couldn't be better and the water effect is also very well done. Perhaps some animals would work wonders here. :pir-classic:

Wow. This is very nice!

Very intricate, i really like the silhouette that looks like an Islander or Emporer. :pir-grin:

The trees are fabulous! And so is everything else! :pir-wub:

I placed this great MOC in the Index of Land-Based MOCs.

Very nice. However, on a side note, Napoleon was not exiled on a deserted island. He was exiled to a small British colony. No, twas definitaly an islander. (Grade A+ History Buff).
