    LEGO Kraken

    I just picked up one of these plexiglass enclosed Black Seas Barracuda displays. This thing is massive! Was an original display from LEGO in 1989! Unfortunately the ship is glued, and so are the island and baseplate.....But it doesn’t take away from how amazing this ship truly is! Sorry to bump such an old post, I stumbled across it when I was doing research on these BSB plexiglass displays. I will post a new thread and pictures when I get it all cleaned up and restored.

    BrickUniverse Tulsa Sept. 29-30

    Well he never responded to me display 🤷‍♂️😢 However we are still making the trip. I will try to get a table set up at Little Rock Arkansas BU show in October. Maybe we could get something going with a few members on here.
  3. Anyone from the Crew going to be coming to BrickUniverse in Tulsa Oklahoma next weekend? My son and I are making the drive from Missouri, and figured if there were any pirate forum people going, it would be nice to meet up. Thinking of bringing a few of my ships for display.

    Useful Pirate Pieces from other Themes?

    Took some torso’s from the Mime and a purple version of Drakula’s torso to make a few new pirates. Just swapped the striped arms for bare yellow arms and it looks pretty well as a pirate. Enjoy!

    Adrianna - Imperial ship

    Amazing!!! I wish I had enough Blue coats to warrant a build like this for them! Truly a work of Keep up the great building, As a ship this size will need something pretty big to shoot at

    Pirates Hidout

    I had some pics of the back on my flickr....but here are some.s you can see, I made the roof removable unlike the original. I used the original window and door, just to keep the feel of the original set as well. I will also post a comparison picture of the original set and mine shortly.

    Pirates Hidout

    [pid][/pid] 205B So I picked up this set at my local Toys R Us because I loved the hot rod included. After looking at the "cabin" for several days, I decided it would make a fun little pirate shack. So Away I I think the MOC turned out nice, the only thing I wish was that I had some bigger blue base plates.Try not to disturb the retired Captain Grey as he I mean fishes. And first mate Peg Leg Pete prepares the coconuts for this evenings feast. And last but not least we have the trusty cook John,who has spent the afternoon slaving over a proper meal for the captain. He has fixed his favorite ( chicken as, hope you enjoy as this was a fun project! Flickr pics Just noticed I misspelled "hideout" in the title. can't figure out how to fix it....hope the mods can fix it for

    Fight for the Black Pearl

    Thanks for the kind words. I don't know on the sails...I can do a little playing around with the masts and see if it changes the look for the better. The smaller top sails give it a smaller look for sure.

    Fight for the Black Pearl

    [pid][/pid] 123A Well, it's time I made a custom Black I was not happy with the size of the original set. The exterior is almost complete, however I haven't finished the interior yet for lack of parts. It has a fully removable deck, and prison cell in the gun deck. Also will have a full captains quarters when I have enough bricks. The Bow uses the same building style as the Imperial flagship, however slightly modified. The Stern uses pieces from the original set, however with my own custom twist. I know it isn't accurate, however it works for my build. Enjoy!!

    FLS(Fun Little Ship) WIP

    Thank you for the kind words. Not my first post or ship presented here, just never have much time to post my This was an easy little trial, as I have built many ships for my kids and myself. I will post up a few more pics when I get this finished. I also have a custom QAR to take pics of in the next few days. Thanks again!

    FLS(Fun Little Ship) WIP

    Ok, don't laugh to much...I got bored the other night and threw this little gem together. I built the ship,using the parts from the SpongeBob FD sets (2).I also used the hull and sails from an extra Renegade Runner. They are rough, but I am not done....might change the sail to a Crossbone Clipper style,we shall see. This was mainly a challenge to see if I could build a bigger ship with "spare" parts. I think it is a good start, However I will add a pre-made hull middle when I can pick one up. Enjoy....comments welcome Here is my link to pics My Flickr
  14. Thanks! Yes I plan on changing the sails to all red/white striped when I can afford to pick them up. I think I will end up purchasing another ship to complete this one....I could use the extra color matched bricks. I also reworked the rear supports one last time...and am very happy with it now. I also added a top balcony to make the rear flow from top to bottom a little better. Here are the updated pics.
  15. The younger Pirate was trying to impress the captain by sweeping the deck....His work was so fast...the broom caught fire! LOL
