Great photos. That pirate invasion on the hotel picture is really neat. I remember reading about it on a Lego Fan blog.  :pir-blush:

Those photos were taken by the MOC builder, Brian Darrow I believe.  

Captain Zuloo should have credited Mr Darrow in the first post and News Item on Classic-Pirates.com.

I wish I was there, but sadly, Chicago is too far away from here. Those photos were taken by Bill Ward.

No, they were taken by Bill Ward. I was in a rush, so I didn't do a perfect job in either the news item or thread... :blush:

I'm sure you'll rectify that in the very near future then.

Actually it was Bonaparte who found it but I would be curious to see this particular MOC from different angles.  It somewhat intrigues me.

That volcano is an awesome little thing, would make a nice addition to any island IMO.
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

Vey cool.  I like that volcano as well and would love to see a wider shot of the scene it is in.  Wasn't Super taking his fort along with some other people to this.  More pictures of the event would be great.

Especially an Islanders themed MOC :kahuka:

I bet that SlyOwl would like that volcano.

there were so many cool things there, too sad that's so far :/ the volcano is cool and the 2nd scene done by a mysterious guy is great !

I'll not say that the Brian Darrow's scene is great because I already said it and everyone know that it's great ^^

Nope, Ben says it's one of these - so not purist, but still just as effective.
It would have been cool to have built the underneath of the spilled lava transparant, to let the lava spill glow as well.

I am glad that you all like my Volcano.  It contains a "GoldenDragon" under-cabinet led puck light by Sylvania which runs on 3 AA batteries.  More photos of the Volcano can be seen here:

Not sure who I should tell about this, but there are two errors in the front page post regarding the Saloon.  The builder is "Bluesecrets", with an 's', not "Bluesecret".  Also, she is a woman.  It says "his" in there.

Thanks,
Josh

Yeah, that would be me, I wrote the article. Thank you very much for pointing that out, I'll fix those errors immediately.

EDIT: Done. Thank you very much Josh, I really appreciate your correction. After all, the builder of that fantastic MOC deserves correct credit for it. :pir-wink:
Thanks. :pir-classic:

There seems a goodly amount of Pirate creations at Brickworld this year, definitely more it seems than previous years.

Is that because there was a particular emphasis on Pirate with some additional promotion, or because the popularity of Pirates is beginning to snowball again?  Or both?

Either way it would be fanatstic if piratical-presence could grow bigger and bigger each year!
