hmmm...  unfortunately i don't have any to show at the moment, K...

however, i have suggestions  ;-)   i have always thought the islander's appeal have been the maoi.  its kinda like a mixture of landscapping (because they are rocks) and face/figure scultpting...  i would recommend lots of maoi, they are just lots of fun to build  X-D

also, the islanders advantage against the pirates is their natural environment...  crocs, swinging vines, leaf camofauge, falling rope/vine bridges, etc...  i would suggest focusing your MOCs on those concepts.  their environment is their strenght, so let them use it !!!

so, those are just a couple brief (and very general) islander concepts off the top of my head.  if you get going on an MOC, im sure i can provide more specific suggestions.

hope to see some soon - BrickMiner

Bonaparte is the current expert on custom mini-figure designs - or he's keeping track of them at least.  However,  I don't think we have any custom designs in the way of Islanders.

Have you seen the 10 links I posted earlier in this thread?  You should really check those out because they lead to Islander MOCs.

And when was LEGO better for you KAHUKA?  Was it back in 1994 when the Islanders were first released?  

Islanders is the least popular sub-theme within the Pirate theme, many distained the sub-theme because the sets were too far removed from the other Pirate sub-themes.  So it has been said 1993 was the last good year of Pirate LEGO and it was all down hill from then.   I disagree with this however and I like the Islander sets so I'm wondering why you like them so much?

As i posted before i used to build islanders sets over my grandmothers house when i had to live there but also cause they are so colorful and i dont really know why im so obssesed with the lego islanders and before i was into lego islanders i was into playmobile islanders dont ask why i like islanders they are just cool.
( and by the way the part where i said i played with them over my grandmothers house i said that because she just died on christmas)

10 Islander MOCs is a good effort.  How big are they though?

Seems like you really need to acquire a digital camera - tell your parents it would make good Christmas present :-D
