Source: blame it on the voices

Their link to the original content was broken, so I'm assuming that they're MOCs. Well done MOCs, too. What a great advertisement these could be.

Apologies if it's been posted before.

EDIT: Aaaaaaaaaand this is what you get when it's late at night and you don't look closely enough. :grin:
True happiness: looking inside the box to see a perfectly flat instruction manual.

Shame they are just done with photo editing.

For example this "piece". lego_01es.jpg Errr... what exactly is that?

...and how did they get the cannons to pass though the hull of the ship... and where did those pincer pieces come from?

The bottom of one of those brown 'mast' pieces also doesn't exactly look like that... :wink:

Yeah, fair point. No pin holes either.  :laugh:

There's another story here that has a link to the creators site. (It's Flash heavy and in Russian... )

Wow. I really didn't notice that. :wacko: And now that I look closer...everything's out of scale. Pieces don't attach like that. Ow.

So, here's the new question: Why edit it?

I think it was one of those fake ad campaigns that people do so they have something in their portfolios.
