Hey Checkout the update to my Lego Islanders themed anniversary set that is heavily inspired by the enchanted island statue which is now standing in a vibrant jungle environment. 

Please support this idea if you like it because I really need all the support to stay in the long game of getting 10k support and making this happen.

Islanders Spirit Beacon
 
The islanders are a rare sight these days.
It has been more than 20 years since the Islanders pointed spear and arrow at pirate and soldier alike. 
After many years of glorious combat the last of the proud warrior-zealots were defeated.
Their strongest leader: shaman king Kahuka still walks the eternal planes. 
The Islanders enchanted island has been looted and pillaged, the tribes scattered to the winds.
A beacon of hope remains deep in the jungle on one of the islands in the archipelago of many waters.
A faceless warrior priestess of the old gods is gathering the scattered tribes.
The whispers beneath her mask speaks of king Kahuka's return. 
Broken spears are mend, arrows sharpened, howling of restless spirits in the night. 
 
This "spirit beacon" is heavily inspired by the original statue design that came with
the Lego Islanders enchanted island set 6278-1 in 1994.
It's a scaled up version with many new details that is nice as a nostalgic reminder or as a new playset.
The spirit beacon has multiple chunks that can be taken apart easily for different play configurations. 
The statue has a compartment in the back that can serve as a prison or inner sanctum. 
A trapdoor leads to a small dungeon compartment were captain cheekbones lurks
A treasure chest is hidden behind the different detachable faces of the head.
 
The remaining Islanders have adapted to use stealth instead of numbers,
Therefore most of the warriors use the jungle mud and leaves to conceal themselves.
Its probably problematic that they still use the same bright painted shields and faces :P
The zealots and priestess paint themselves with the classic red paint of the Islanders
They are worthy of invoking the spiritual essence that is embedded within the shrine of the beacon. 

Mini-figs as seen from left to right:

Muddy Monkey, banana specialist.

You should add more pictures here as well! I really love it, the colours, the modularity, the minifigures. I think it is a great set on its own and would be a nice base to expand its concept and create other jungle/native sets so to make it in a modular larger enchanted island.

I have issues uploading images here.

I opent the original png in photoshop and set export scale to 10% original size and also lower quality within the 10-50% range and export this as a more compact jpeg.

The resulting images look very bad and I can't even upload more I tried in the edit of this post.

Maybe you can tell me how to uplaod hilgher quality within the 20kb limit.

You should open a free flickr account and upload your pictures there and then link them here, which is also a simple process:

  1. upload the picture on flickr
  2. go back to the main page to view the pictures
  3. click on a picture to view it
  4. on the lower right corner there's a download button. you click on it and it gives an option "view all sizes"
  5. you click on it and it brings you to a different page with a list of different sizes
  6. you should pick the "medium 800" or "larger 1024"
  7. on top, in the search bar, you get a link, copy it and paste it here in the thread and you've got the higher resolution picture.

The nice thing is that if you click on the picture you post, it takes you back to the flickr page where you can check the original size, if you really need to see a small detail.

That's weird... Maybe you should contact some moderator here and try to get help or understand why this is happening. Or maybe something is getting missed in translation. If you're trying to upload things on this website using the image upload option and it says you have no space, well... it is because your picture you already posted used all the space available, but the point is that you're not uploading anything on this website, you're just sharing a link from flickr and it gets displayed in here automatically.
