Invaded by Imperial soldiers ?
Sick of running from lava ?
Things just not going your way ?
Maybe it's time to build an Idol ...... those things work right ? Well at any rate it's a great excuse to cook a red coat or three.

Great scene, TazManiac! :pir-sweet:

I love the maracas for eyes on the idol, it looks like some freaky horror version of Krusty the Clown.

I also like the detail of the islander sharpening his knives in preparation of the great meal ahead.

And the drum is nicely done too. How did you make it stand upright? Is it just balancing between the studs on the base plate?

Cheers for the comments, as for the drum its just sitting there (until LEGO make a double female 1x1 round plate).
sorry about the photo quality, they looked fine before re-sizing them. :pir-hmpf_bad:

What program are you using to resize your pictures?


A nice scene Taz! I like the idol/statue in the back. And it's always nice to see a classic Islander cooking party!
Well done! :thumbup:

They're auto resized via a generic image host "servimg.com".
It's my own fault for being lazy I've got photoshop just need to pull my finger out and open a brickshelf account and start uploading to that.
that will help maintain the picture quality.....yes?

Well done. The islanders are usually a bit like the underdogs, but it's nice to see them boil some redcoats too now and then.
Good job on the palm trees and on the brown structure in the back. It really looks like a big angry face.
