Since the invention of Bricklink, we have a way to find some rather unique and strange pieces.  One source that may have been unavailable to us previously are 'Fabuland' pieces, or pieces that would have been in the 'Belville' line.

Since I have spotted a couple of pieces out there, and a few system builders have been using them in their MOCs, I thought I would find out if there were any pieces out there anyone has found particularly useful!

Here are just a few I know of...

1. Belville Bucket.

Posted Image

I have seen it used as a bell (by me) and as the end of a cannon or deck gun.  The piece is quite useful for things that require a 'flared' end!

Posted Image
Posted Image

2. The Fabuland Oar eventually ended up evolving to a slightly different oar like the one in the Viking Sets, but it originally looked like this...

Posted Image

Then we got this one in various colors in the Belville sets.

Posted Image

It is avaibalable in some odd colors like lime green and yellow.  When it made it to the system level, we got them in brown and black as well!

3.  The Fabuland roof.  This guy was recently featured in Phes's MOC.

Posted Image

Posted Image

4. Fabuland and Belville also have a slightly larger rowboat...

Posted Image

I haven't used one, but it could be useful!

I don't want people to just mention every Belville piece out there, we could search Bricklink for those ourselves, what I am hoping for is some suggestions on how these pieces are being used in our Pirate MOCs, or piece we know could be useful!

When did they make it to SYSTEM level?  Was that  only in Viking sets because this is the oar that was commonly used in SYSTEM sets:

I think the Fabuland oars are too big for SYSTEM mini-figures...

The boat was rereleased in 4Juniors 7072: Captain Kragg's Pirate Boat

I bought two of them because I have high hopes in mocing something interesting from them.  I would have prefered brown but black is my second favorite.

They were also used in the Emperors ship, from the Orient expedition line.

And Zcerberus also made a great use of these on his lovely ship, the Sienna:

Another useful Fabuland piece I think is this "flask":

Yes, that mask appeared in some of the 4+ pirate sets but I've seen it used in SYSTEM scaled Pirate MOCs and I think it works quite well.

Now there's an ornate arch used in some Belville sets that I can't find a picture of on Peeron, but I own a couple.  I haven't found a use for them yet but they would be good for something noble like a Governor or Baron's house.

Correct sir!  In fact, I think the Emperor's ship is the only way to get old brown ones!

Duke used the smaller version in his Xebec, and I think the larger ones on the Sienna worked out a little better than the smaller ones on his ship.

Yes, this is a good piece!  It looks like there are several useful pieces there, but I think some of them are already very system-y.  That boat could be useful!

That's a shame because I agree that the brown looks better.

Surprisingly Mr Tiber I actually noticed this about 2 and a half years ago when Captain Krag's boat was released.   :-P

I don't like the colour at all, but perhaps it would work if the hull pieces were brown.  But another angle might help things, so I'd be curious to see what it looks side on.

I see after a quick trip down the forums that this boat has been used as an ordinary long boat as well on one of Kurt (Lego Naval Architect)

This looks like the part, correct?

The black ones are around 4.00 USD.  I don't know what that tells you about where you live!  Yes, Bricklink would give you a better idea than I could!

Never thought of using that big boat as a rowing boat for my pirates/soldiers, I'm sure one can fit lots more minifigs in there than in a small average rowing boat!

There's only one new brown one available on bricklink, and it costs 10.00 USD, used brown 4.00 USD

and used black boats minimum price is 1 USD and maximum 2.50 USD

New black boats minimum 3.35 USD and maximum 5.00 USD


Have a nice day,

The Fabuland rowboat is actually different from the Bellville one. It's a little less deep and is more rounded.

The Bellville boat is the one that has come in more reasonable colors in System sets.

This MOC is mine. It was created in about 5 minutes at BrickFest 2000 when we discovered that we needed a few more ships for Evil Stevie's Pirate Game. It was made from available parts at the time (fortunately I had loaded up an SUV with several boxes of parts and such). I actually made two of them.

With a bit more work, this idea could be turned into a decent ship, though it looks a little funny with the rounded stern.

Hi there Frank! Do you still have this MOC? Because I have some ideas that might make it look like a decent cutter/longboat.

1. Get rid of those white boats, take brown or black ones.
2. Change the colours of the bricks below the masts and of the plate at the stern.
3. Put fences on the plate.

Have a nice day,

Mr Tiber
