LEGO Barracuda Bay MOD

Recommended Posts

Hello. It's been some time since I last posted in this forum, but I'm back with a new-ish creation. Last spring I was able to snag the LEGO Ideas Pirates of Barracuda Bay set, mostly for the build of the updated Black Seas Barracuda. However, once the Dark Shark is separated from the build, it leaves behind a very sad-looking planks and timbers on a sandbar. So, I got the idea to put together some new structures onto the old shell. The result: The Barracuda Bay Trading Post.

The new structures are almost entirely composed of timber facades, but the foliage provided from the original Barracuda Bay set allowed for some variety in the build.

A look outside the rebuilt Jose's Inn, with the notorious highwayman Brick Turpin looking for some easy cash.

On the other side is Rosie's Supply Shack. Dangling from the roof is a customer who wouldn't pay, and the guy who came before him hanging a little ways away.

On top of Jose's is an old field cannon and the Pirate Sheriff (I thought a pirate lawman to be slightly humorous). In the background is the old jail cell and its occupant.

A look inside Rosie's Supply shack. She has a small weapons shack and a shelf full of...bottles. Perhaps they're poisons, or medicines, or a jar of dirt (Insert Jack Sparrow meme)

A bird's-eye view into Jose's. I had a whole assortment of junk to put inside, but I'm still wondering about what works and doesn't work. I like the bar and the spit-barrel, but I might do some more interior design later on.

On top of Rosie's Supply Shack, Rosie's sister tries to catch some much-needed rays. Don't forget your sunscreen, kiddies!

 

That's about it. Feel free to comment below. Sorry if my photos don't exactly scream quality, but I've been experimenting with my camera to get things right. 

Always entertaining, always inspiring, always:

I think it's a big improvement over the set.

Sure looks more faithful to the original idea :pir_tong2:

Thank you. To be honest, I didn't notice I was channelling the original design. Perhaps my subconscious was directing my building...

Really, really nice! I like every detail and yes it looks more close to the original submission, but with its own different character. If I have to nitpick, I don't really like the whiteness of the windows, because they look too bright compared to the rest. But that's it. I love the spaciousness of the Jose's Inn, Rosie's supply shack with her guns ready at hand and everything else going on in the scene! Lovely work indeed!
