So this is my first attempt at an alternative build.

One thing I never experimented with much while I was a kid was building my own versions of sets.  Either I would feel that it wouldn't be as good as the original set, or I just wasn't in the mood to build something other than the set as intended.

But I decided to give it a shot with my daughter and we rebuilt Lagoon Lock-up using only pieces from that set into I think a pretty cool alternate build.

There are many architectural similarities between this and the original - notably the awning (because who can see breaking that up?) and the big arch that is made by the two half arch pieces.  I also put a boat that had came with one of the auctions I purchased (with gray seats I also made from spare parts) onto the set.

The tavern is now basically a nice fortified area with the cannon at the end of the path.  The table for drinks is at the corner, and a spare musket sits on the wall just in case.

I do wish I had more firing cannons :cry_happy:

The jail is now on the top floor to dissuade Redbeard and his minions from freeing any prisoners.

I don't think it's bad for my first real attempt at an alternate build.  It's a new look at a great set.

And yeah I know that as far as what I have seen in this forum, this pales in comparison.  You guys are amazing at what you do :D

Thanks for looking!

I like it :thumbup: it still has the lagoon lock-up feel, as well as some cool additional techniques. The cannon on the dock looks good.

Props for building with your daughter!
You've fallen for one of the classic Blunders! the most famous of which is never get involved in a land war in Asia, but only slightly less well-known is this, Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!!!

Looks great! However, a little advice would be to put a white background for your MOCs when you post them. It looks a lot more professional that way. :wink:
