This is a post asking what you like about Lego Islanders. What do you do with your sets? Do you collect them or play with them? Maybe you just build them and put them on the shelf. I'd like you to tell me. :-D  :-$  :-D  :-$

I only have 2 islanders.
I bought them about 1 week ago, so they are still standing on my desk.
Let me ask the same questions to you Islander Boy.
What do you do with your Islanders?
How many Islanders does a hard-core fan like yourself have in his collection?

Yes Islander Boy, tell us more about yourself.  Why do you like Islanders so much?  Which Islander sets do you have?

I have Enchanted Island, the re-realease. I enjoyed playing with it, but now it's disassembled, lying somewhere in a box.
Also added this to the Islanders Topics Index.

I happen to own a couple Islander sets and some loose parts such as 6278 / 6292 baseplates and some loose Islander minifigs. For me they are nothing more than add-ons and a sub-theme, probably the way Lego intended it to be.

The female Islander torso makes an excellent figurehead for a ship by the way.  X-D

I like the Islanders. I plan on doing a JT story involving them as natives guarding some lost treasure. Beyond that I have no idea what they will be doing.

I really like the Islanders, I have most of the sets (missing the small throne 6236, the 6264 Forbidden Cove and the rare 1788 base) and I am urging to complete the sequence.
I own two times the amount of baseplates needed for the Enchanted Island so I am able to make a circular pond with a small island in the middle.
The MOC I made using that formula can also be found in the Islander Index

Beautiful subtheme that is easy to expand with any Lego collection, all you need is some rocks and palmtrees.

Tell us about (and show us!) your Islander MOC's Islander Boy!

Being a British Imperialist at heart, I must say that if I actully owned any, the woudl be any of the following:
1)Imperial informants, later to be made into slaves
2)Slaves who were previously Imperial informants
3)Native people(s) to be made into slaves
4)Slaves

What did you expect from a Britsh Imperialist? Eqaulity? Abolishment of slavery? NEVER!!

The islanders are good for a number of reasons
Pirates attempt to bury treasure,Islanders attack and lose
Islanders catch a few and sacrifice them to thier gods  X-D
They are especially fun when the Spanish invade and steal all thier treasure
:) A Pirates life for me

When I bought my first 2 islander sets in 2002 (for sale in a little belgian toystore) I was very happy with it. It were the little throne (with Kahuka) and the catamaran. The masks were very nice the boats also. The figs were cute and nice and the little flower decolletee (?) with belly button was very cute. the hair pieces wre also new for me. Much parrotsinside.

Well actually I don't have any actual minifigs of islanders but they are awesome and thats why I like them. Also I live in Hawaii so that is another reason. but I do have a boat and some horns from their sets. :-D  :-D

I've gotta agree with norrington and pirhana on their take of the islanders... or well, just say I do similar things with mine.  when i play with my lego they usually end up carring the really heavy gold filled chests or locked up in some jail somewhere for no good reason.

indiginous people always got the shaft...lol....

... or europeans just ruled the world

What does that plague next to the weapon say?

It looks like "club with shark ???? of kaulia wood, tiger shark teeth and hemp"

I can't make out the far word in the first row.

I'd say that the word is 'teeth', for a guess. As that's what they look like.

i believe the Plaque says "club inlaid with shark teeth" on the top row and "of kaulia wood, tiger shark teeth and hemp" on the bottom row.

Well I believe it says the hawaiian name for the club
Then describes what it is made from
Kailua wood is a type of native tree
I'm sure you all know what a Tiger shark is  :-D
Ouch, I would hate to be clubbed with that thing

I was sailing around a small archipelligo when I came across Lego pirates islanders and I wondered what tribe/ nationality they were. Does anyone know?
