Poor fishy, having that cannon pointed at him :pir_laugh2:
Has some very unique aspects.

That's a wonderful MOC Hippotam!

The SNOT water blends really nicely with the sand. And it has so many great little details.

Great work! :thumbup:

I liked how you did the Rocks spurting out the Volcano!
It would be awesome if you worked out how to have "Pyroclastic Flow".  :pir_laugh2:

Keep up this mighty fine work.

What an excellent creation, i love the realistic rocky volcanoe, and all the other extra detail put into it. Truly an amazing piece of work

Hippotam, that's a significant upgrade to the "volcano island" concept.

Very interesting how you've built up the island out of slopes too and the minor details are superb - the "monkey trap" is hilarious!

Yay! A working computer I have found! In regards to the MOC, I think it is brilliant. Although if I was that guy I would be making myself scarce!
Well done and keep up the good work!

Very, very nice MOC!! Lots of small detail and I love the vulanoe eruption, never seen before :pir_laugh2:
Also that huge cannon pointed at the fish is awesome, but cruel too ( however, it's a fish... )
Again, an awesome MOC!

Sail to My Brickshelf or to My MOCpages, or my Flickr Photostream!

Very nice moc! :thumbup:
Is that cannon not pointing on a little sausage, so if a shark will eat the sausage, the pirate can kill the shark and eat him?
