If by some small chance I win, or get a significant number of votes, I shall make this into a brickflick!
Also, sorry about the image being very boring and with an awful choice of background... kinda ran out of time editing it!
Which side are you on?
Captain Barbossa sailed aboard his privateer ship and surveyed these unfamiliar waters. The sound of cannonfire upon the wind caught his attention and he took out his telescope. Looking through it, he saw nothing and so called to his lieutenant “Get me some 1x1 round bricks ye’ scurvey dog!”.
The Lieutenant attempted to tip his hat to his captain, but being a plastic, it nearly toppled off his head, having no flexibility. A moment later he returned with the 1x1 bricks and held them out to his Captain who used them to extend his telescope.
Barbossa turned his huge telescope towards where the cannonfire was coming from and in the distance he could make out a white fortress upon some form of plastic rock, being attacked by a ship with red and white sails.
As they drew closer to the fort, Barbossa could make out yellow skinned pirates and blue-coated soldiers battling. He focussed his attention on one pirate wearing a red and white vest, and watched as the pirate turned, revealing a purely yellow back.
“No back printing… these must be ‘classic pirates’… INTO THE LONGBOATS!”
Captain Rodger swung his sword at Governor Broadside. His eye caught something.
“Stop… stop… STOP GOVERNOR!” said Rodger, pointing towards the approaching boat. “Lets see what these landlubbers be’ wantin’”.
“That’s not the blue of our soldiers…” observed the governor.
“He has a peg-leg, unheard of for anyone not a pirate in our Lego world”
“Good sir!” shouted the Governor, to Barbossa “Are you a redcoat, a bluecoat or a pirate?
“Well lets be seeing now…” said Barbossa. “I bein’ an officer wear blue, but soldiers of me’ nation they be wearing red. Oh, and I be a privateer. That be meanin’ I be a pirate fightin’ for the blue-redcoats. That help?”
