    [MOC] Forbidden Island

    Wow. What a wonderful job! I love this island. Just perfect! I do especially love the little cabin. A lot of work went into this.

    BrickTracks: R104 Switch Kickstarter is LIVE!

    Hey-ho Long time since I last wrote on EB. I was checking out the latest state of the art for Lego train resources and stumbled over these beauties on BrickTracks. https://www.bricktracks.com/product-page/r104-switch-track-kits I thought the Brickstarter Program failed. But it seems you can pre-order this item. Expected ship date is February 1st. I am wondering why @coaster did not wrote something. Or am I missing something, which would be typical for me.

    [MOC] Pirate ship "Parthenope"

    I LOVE your ship. You did an fantastic job! I also love to see the use of my anchor approach! You managed to build the two arms in a way that it looks realistic which I didn't get. Very nice! Can't wait to see further images.

    Modding the Barracuda thread

    You could use these sails. But I don't know if they are the correct size. But you can of course use several side by side for one mast. https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=32652&name=Cloth Sail Tattered Long with 4 Round Holes and 6 Ripped Holes&category=[Cloth]#T=C&C=69 https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=32653&name=Cloth Sail Tattered Short with 2 Round Holes and 5 Ripped Holes&category=[Cloth]#T=C&C=69
  7. It's a brick built hull so it's a GO for me. I want to know how they did it.

    THE PIRATE BAY IS GOING TO BE AN OFFICIAL LEGO SET!!!!

    Yes! I definitely can say they did a great job for a sailing ship. Everything is just so well rounded and it look gorgeous. If there will not come a Pirate Theme and this Set stays as a single, it will get very expensive very quickly after EOL. Because the parts used are just amazing and some are quite rare up to unique. Similar to the Old Fishing Store. It got up in price very quickly. Now it costs minimum 270€ up to 480€ new.

    Yeah. Something like a waterplate is always only for guys who already have the parts or don't care about money. And there are enough of these candidats out there.

    Just to make it clear. The Base I built does weight 2kg. Excluding the set. xD

    Do you have recommendations for what tile colour to use for the water so it looks nicer?

    THE PIRATE BAY IS GOING TO BE AN OFFICIAL LEGO SET!!!!

    Wow. Seeing the render in Stud.io it seems to have more of the vibe of the original submission now. Much darker and natural.

    That point is pure speculation and is not covered with what the Designer Milan, the Minifig Designer and the Fan Designer Pablo said. If you insist on this point you have to prove the opposite. (I know that you just made your thoughts. Nothing against you. But other people tend to overlook that and take your thoughts as state) There are several interviews out there. I want especially point out the Interview from Assembled with both Set designers and the Fan Designer Pablo on YT. In the StoneWars Article mentioned earlier here is also a poll made about the Set. I wanted to translate it for you. Polls: Your opinion about the Pirates of Barracuda Bay As always, we want to know what you think of the set for this big new release. First of all, we want to hear your general opinion about the finished Pirates of Barracuda Bay and whether you're going to buy it for the release on April 1st, 2020, or whether you want to buy the set later or not at all.

Do you like the changes that the LEGO designers have made here, or would you have preferred the original fan design, even if that meant not being able to convert Pirate Bay into a new version of the Black Seas Barracuda? What do you think of the design of the final Pirate Bay? I think both designs have their advantages and disadvantages. (38%, 818 votes) I like the final set better than the Ideas draft!

    Very nice model. Well done. =)

    I'm very happy about the pure existence of this set. I'm ok with the transition without the raised baseplate and the hulls which are not available anymore. I had a raised dopamine level during the evening when I saw the first images on 24th. Regarding the ship it is amazing. It's the most accurate and detailed sailing ship lego has ever built. Seeing the prices of the Imperial Flagship this ship here was definitely needed. The rigging could get a bit customization though. But the side walls and the stern are just amazing solved for a lego set. I am very happy.

    My jaw dropped and lay on the table while I was scrolling through this page. Every word to describe this beautiful model is out of place.
