[MOC] What shall we do with... Juniors set 10679 "Pirate Treasure Hunt"?

Recommended Posts

... 'Have some fun' would be the answer of course! :pir-sweet:

The following was just a little fun challange to myself: Can we build something cool when taking two of the Juniors sets 10679? The creation is - of course - not the most impressive one; but remember it's a Juniors set with less than 50 parts of very limited variety.

 

Here are some facts of the set:

  • Set number: 10679
  • Release Date: 2017
  • Piece Count: 46 (52 with extra pieces)
  • Minifigures: 2 (each has his own hat gear!)
  • Price: around 10 €/$/£ (new, 2017); used price today probably in the range of 10-15 €/$/£
  • Availability: Still plenty of them available on the secondary market

Next is what I came up with:

Fortunately each of the figures (a living and a dead pirate) comes with its own hatgear. This enabled to build 4 unique figures. There are practiacally no leftover pieces, Particularly difficult was to build proper benches into the rowboat, as the juniors layout used a brick AND a plate on top. For the building I tried to create something with more depth than the orginal stone wall. Eventually one of the rowboats had to be used as floor and railing at once for the first floor.

That's all! :pir-devil:

Thank you for your interest! See you around!

Wow, I like it. I bought that set some years ago, and never thought you could actually make a real building out of it. I should have bought two I guess :pir-grin:  That would make a great starter set for my son, it has even some sabre island vibes. :pir-thumb:

It's kind of like Sabre Island but for pirates!

The end result isn't too shabby. :pir-thumb:

Maybe I'm crazy, but I thought the original set worked in its own right, despite the wall piece alluding to a much larger structure.

Have you ever considered expanding the original set to flesh out what that building might actually be?
