Pirates-figures on a scale of 5:1.



Hi, everyone! This is my first MOC at Classic-Pirates.com. I decided to make 6 LEGO-figures on a scale 5:1.

That`s where the gouvernor points with his sword! He orders the soldiers to rescue his daughter from the Big Bad Pirate!

Making such "gigafigures" turned out to be quite exiting. I think this won`t be my only work of the kind.

This is very original, the figures look great! :thumbup:
I would only ask you to resize your pictures to a maximum of 800x600. This way the page loads faster and the pictures will be better visible on small screens.

Irfanview is a great program to resize pictures. And it's free. :pir-sweet:

Those are clever!
Like Blackomoor said, it would be great if you could resize your pictures so that they load quicker.

What a great way to introduce yourself to Classic-Pirates!  :thumbup:
Of course your figures have the advantage of better proportions compared to the "fat" minifigures yet it's still obvious that you took inspiration from those in the 2009 Pirates line. The only think that bothers me is that they cannot be posed and look a little fragile.

Perfectionist, they are indeed rather fragile, but they can stand on a shelf and won`t fall :pir-blush: .
