Theme: Pirates
Pieces: Definitely over 200 :tongue:
Minifigs: 16
Vehicle: Jabba's Sail Barge

WIP

The pirates had found all the treasure and were getting board of sailing aimlessly round the globe getting attacked by sea creatures. So, they made a new boat. High powered engine which can go in water and can make the ship hover on land, and stolen parts from Jabba's Sail Barge.

Interior

Captain's Cabin

The research room, with parrots and shelves full of interesting stuff!

The research room without the parrots, but a better shot at the dancer. :grin:

The treasure room. This is where all the Captain's winnings are kept, except for his recent trophies; lightsabers. Note the grill above lifts off to allow new treasure to be put in place.

Pretty sure you can only have one entry. It seems that you have two.

Okay then, I will comment on it now. Right now I think it looks way too piratey. It needs some details that really make it look like a Sw vessel still, and not only pirate. Maybe you should build a little bit of steampunk here, because that would make it better in my opinion and it wont be too futuristic.

Nice work. It really looks like a Pirate ship while essentially still looking like Jabba's Barge. :thumbup: Funny scene too! :laugh:  But I would remove the top sails because Jabba's Barge only has two sails. Also, the addition of some of the parts from Shipwreck Hideout (like the steering wheel) would improve the MOC quite a bit as well. :wink:

Thanks for the kind comments. :classic:

@Natman: Yes, I will add some more things to it to make it look more SW. It has an interior with features too which give it the Sail Barge feel. :thumbup:

@Oky: Thanks. Good tips there. The sail idea is really good. :thumbup: Those pieces might be included. Otherwise I may have to improvise. :sceptic:

Still its a marvelous ship! good luck

Looks very good now! :sweet: The sails seem a bit high, but that's OK I guess as Pirate ships always have high masts. The Mer-Jar is hilarious! :laugh: And even though he is out of place, Pirate Rotta is pretty funny too. :thumbup:
The interior looks also good. :thumbup: But a research room instead of a kitchen? That can't be good! :grin:
Is that the Governor's daughter in the captain's cabin? :grin:
The ship looks great in general, but some of the areas on the exterior are lacking some detail compared to real Lego Pirate ships. For example, in the back, it would be neat if you had crossed swords above the windows, like on Brickbeard's Bounty. :wink:

Good job, and good luck! :thumbup:
