[MOC] PlunderCats: Hideout on Cat Skull Island

Recommended Posts

PlunderCats are on the move, PlunderCats are loose! The PlunderCats are a band of ferocious feline pirates lead by the fearsome Captain Fluffybeard. Their hideout is located in the middle of the Catribbean on Cat Skull Island and is essentially a big cat tree.

Their ship is basically just a box with sails since the cats are usually more interested in the crate that the pirate ship parts arrive in than the actual ship itself. They don't get very far with it, though, since they tend to claw up the sails much like they do with drapes.

The island used to be inhabited by Mouselanders until the PlunderCats hunted them and drove them away. The only remainder of their culture is a statue on the beach. And yes, that is a cat turd next to it. After all, what is a beach but a giant litter box.

The PlunderCats are always on the run from the Imperial Armada, but recently they managed to capture their arch enemy, the scurvy dog Admiral Barkington, and are holding him hostage. They imprisoned him in a kennel on their island with a dog bowl with a delicious bone just out of reach. The admiral is not happy about his situation.

Inside their cat tree house, they have a table with a treasure map and various chests and barrels. Captain Fluffybeard also likes to keep a parrot here, in case he wants a snack to play with.

Outside the hut, some of the PlunderCats ladies have gotten into a swashbuckling, literal cat fight. One of them is standing on the bridge that connects the cat tree with the guard tower by the kennel prison which is armed with a hairball cannon.

On the roof of the hut, one of the cats dove head-first into a barrel of catnip right after knocking over a carton milk because, well, he's a cat. There is also a crane here which when not used to lift up supplies to the cat tree, it's used to dangle cat toys from it.

On one of the platforms, two very popular cat musicians, keyboard piano cat and bongo cat, are playing shanties to entertain the other PlunderCats. Let's hope they don't catch a cold up here and go viral.

Up on Cat Skull Mountain inside the giant cat head is a cave where the PlunderCats keep their most prized treasure: the Golden Cheezburger. A cat skeleton is here to remind potential thieves that no one can haz it but them. From the giant skull, a waterfall runs down to the river below, making it look like a cat barfing onto a carpet.

Here is a closer at Captain Fluffybeard and his fearsome crew.

This is fantastic! Great use of a mix of feline style heads, the Chima ones seem to fit especially well. I love the mouse statue, 100% gave me immediate Islander vibes which is a great thing.

Wow what a funny build! Have seen somewhere else a catpirate build and it was awesome, too! What a great contest theme! I really love the figs and when i saw the bongo cat I just see my sisters white cat and her fitting chat emojis she sends me all day. I will forward this to her right now!

What a great fun build, and hits nostalgia of both 1980s LEGO and TV.

The moment I saw this, I remembered the 2D PC game "Captain Claw" - which was actually about a cat captain, who sought the legendary medalion of nine lives, while battling off the Cocker-Spaniards and other dogs/felines :) Thank you for bringig back these memories with such a storyful and detailed build;-)
