  1. I'm fairly active on the LEGO Pirates related Facebook groups and am willing to help if it's still needed. I have quite a bit of experience admining fairly large Facebook groups.

    Wow... thank you so much!! That is quite a compliment!

    Thanks! No, he's mostly out of the "play" stage... he's 17 now. LOL! But he's still a big time LEGO fan as well and has a huge collection of his own, he just doesn't pine after the classic stuff like I do. Nostalgia is a powerful force.

    Getting my Pirates layout setup

    I've been continually adding to and tweaking my layout over the past few months. I've added quite a few more minifigures (though currently the Pirates definitely outnumber the Bluecoats, so I would like to add more soldiers when I can find some on a decent enough deal). My son feels that the layout needs more dynamic action and I agree with him, so I'll be starting to work on that next. However, I'm pretty pleased in general with how it's all been coming along. (My apologies for the absolutely terrible lighting in my LEGO room!)

    Pirate sets you would like to see

    Haha!! That's a fun one!

    Interesting part selection in POBB

    Yep, like @Jack Sassy said, it's to aid in the conversion process between full ship and shipwreck.

    Looking for some of the wackier pirate ship MOCs

    Wow, that is really spectacular looking! This kind of monochrome building is just fascinating to me to look at!

    Thank you for that corrected link!

    Technic Ball Joints as Cannon Balls

    It does make for a very nice look. Certainly more visibly appealing than the standard 1x1 round brick. But there's something in my old heart that will always just feel that this is just the way that cannon balls are supposed to look...

    Got The Golden Medallion framed and hung and I'm very happy with how it looks there behind Forbidden Island!

    Getting my Pirates layout setup

    My latest acquisition came in yesterday and I couldn't be happier! I managed to get my hands on a very good copy of The Golden Medallion for less than $5 shipped! I already had the extra minifigures and accessories in my collection, so I can add this as a complete set to my collection! I plan on framing it and getting it hung up by my pirates display.

    Getting my Pirates layout setup

    Thank you both!! These are the new changes from over the weekend: First, I got a couple more blue baseplates and added them in to cover up the gap. So that looks much better now! Next, I took one of my two #6265 Sabre Island sets that I have on each side of Eldorado Fortress and mirrored the build. I'm still not 100% sure how much I like it, but it's growing on me! I still need to work on getting more minifigures for the layout, I have a number of extra soldiers, sailors, and pirates in there, but it still feels like I need MORE! Also starting to think what else I might add into the layout. I really don't want to expand this much beyond the original 1989-91 Blue Coat era of Pirates, but I think I might add in #6261 Raft Raiders. I might also add some small era-appropriate custom builds... we shall see!

    Getting my Pirates layout setup

    I've been steadily working on updating my Pirates layout. It now includes all of the sets in the 1989-91 range except for 6273 Rock Island Refuge which I just have no room at all to display with the rest. I'm pretty pleased with the look of the Imperial side! I managed to squeeze 6259 in between 6276 and 6267 and was fairly happy with the end result. The Pirates side is pretty cramped, mostly due to the size of the Barracuda, but all of the islands do fit over there. I still need to get a blue baseplate cut down to fit in the current gap. After that, I'm not sure exactly what my next step will be. Adding even more minifigs to be sure. I also am planning on displaying The Golden Medallion comic in some way with it.
