Thanks to Phes for the awesome background.


After taking apart my ITP for a review, I decided to try MOCing something else rather than rebuilding it. The result is this Imperial Outpost, built in the classic style. Two cannons, a drinking area (:drunk:), and a small dock.

great MOC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i really love it...i only suggest you changing old 1992-1995 redcoats for 2009 redcoats...i think new redcoats look better.

I really love it because that MOC could be a real lego set

Neat! It does look like it could be one of TLG’s own sets, elegant and simple. I’m not really a fan of those oversize MOCs you could fit a ship into, I prefer the slightly unrealistic "official" LEGO scale.
Good job!

Captain Roger, I respectfully disagree on the new Imperial Guards; though I admit the back printing and printed shako is an improvement, i didn’t see it as necessary. Furthermore, this is meant to be in the classic style, as Skipper writes.

I like this very much; as the other two posters have said, this would be believable if you posted it up as a 'lost' official set from the 90s.

Thanks everyone! :classic:

I actually like the new Imperials over old, the printing is so beautiful. However I associate this bright yellow/red colorscheme completely with the older figures, so to me the new looks out of place.

That being said if this was built with tan/dark blue yes I would use the new figures.

Nice work! Like others say this could have fitted in seamlessly as an official set in the early 90s. Nice to see a MOC in the true classic pirates style. Like you I also prefer the 2009 wave redcoats but again like you I think it's much nicer to include the classic ones as they're a much better fit for this MOC. Good to see someone showing off that you don't need to build something complicated for it to still look good.

Looks like a real Classic Pirate MOC!
I always try to make my MOCs look like it could fit with the series from 1989/1993.
In this case you Aced the feeling.
I hope to see more of these Classics From you!

I agree also that this looks like it could be an actual set.

This could be a set a few years ago... You have managed to capture exact the same building style! Not many people can achieve that in such a way. :thumbup:
This kind of MOCs make me happy. :pir-sweet:
