X Marks The Spot! by Walter Boy, on Flickr

Upon reaching a patch of land inside the cave, the crew got out and dug at the specified location, hoping to unearth a trunk of treasure. Eventually the crew members dug far enough and hit a solid object.

"Treasure!", they all exclaimed.

Captain Bananabreath commanded it be opened. After the lock was shot off, the treasure chest was opened. At last! Treasure! Gold! Riches beyond belief!

...Or so they thought until the contents of the chest were revealed to them!
"Bananas?" they all declared, perplexed and dazed.

"Oh yes! Rich, golden, delicious bananas! These are the greatest bananas in the entire Caribbean, ripe and ready to be eaten. A fair share for all the crew members! Eat up me hearties!" replied the Captain as he enjoyed the spoils of his treasure.


Well, that's the end! Rather short and sudden, but I hope you've enjoyed it. This entire process was rather short, taking (off and on) 2 weeks to build all the scenes and roughly 1 week to photograph.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to follow it.  :jollyroger:

Nice, I love the expression on the minifigures' faces, spot on  :pir-classic:

Edit: btw, I see you also posted this at forbidden cove, It's a bit awkward to post a comment there too, considering I already said it here  :pir_wacko: apologies  :pir-grin:

I knew it had to be bananas. Too bad for the crew they weren't golden bananas.

Which chest-piece is that on the mini-fig with the green cap? (His face kills me!  :pir_laugh2:  He's so disappointed with that banana.)

The torso is an IJ Cairo thug torso.
