Oh no, poor Bart. Oh well,10 years is a long time to wait.
Yes, how does the saying go? "An idle mind is the devil's workshop." Thanks for your comment Bob.

I really like it, but seriously, Lego is a
toy regardless of all the AFOL's out there. So I do like the detail and design for that MOC, but I think it is inapropriate for a Lego person to be commiting suicide. But then, I'm a bit of a pathetic pirate, so whatever. All in all, a great MOC, and if anything you can improve, it would be buying some brown 2x2 cylinder bricks off of Lego Pick-a-brick or Bricklink for the tree trunk.

Well I thought the topic was a little off for a kids toy, but I've seen MOCs with simulated blood and guts so in contrast this isn't as bad...right? There is a message to it though. The message is, "Tomorrow will be a better day". Luckily for Bart, the tree is weak and keeps falling apart every time I move the base. Thanks for commenting Captain Zuloo.

Congratulations on building your first MOC General Knowledge!
It's quite a good first effort too - I like the tree and I don't think the great pieces hurt it. In fact it probably needs a second colour to prevent the green from becoming overwelming or monotomous.
He looks like he's got a decent food supply with all the clams and fish - he should have built a tree house like Swiss Family Robinson...
Thanks for your comment Mister Phes. Fortunately Bart is in paradise, unfortunately he can"t get off. I thought about a tree house, but I only have gray, white, and black pieces left. I need to order some brown flat 1x?s, I think they will come in handy since my main focus is on the pirate theme. I should order or bid on some trees also. I thought I had one somewhere, but couldn't find it.

Hey not bad for a first, love the ironie!
The waterfall and the fire are a nice touch, the foliage is nicely done as well!
I was expecting a ship for some reason...
I wanted to do a ship, but the rules of the contest only allows use of a 32x32 baseplate and 1 minifig. Thanks for the compliments Captain Green Hair.
