    [WIP] 2024 Lego Islanders Catamaran

    Yes you are right Ill do a big render update at the end of this weekend. Thank you :) I was having a bit of fun with the "fish/lizard" part: it would be nice if the parts could be used like this, but maybe its to much: I want the catamaran and crew in the end to look like a royal hunting party including the prince or king at the drums ;) ill also try to test a giant crocodile, with the detachable head and tail to be added to the ships modular slots. that seems more in theme ofcourse to the original islanders also now I think of it, it always seemed that the crocodiles where considered a holy animal that lived in symbiose with the islanders and only attacked pirates and other intruders xD

    [WIP] 2024 Lego Islanders Catamaran

    Hello, its been a few years, In the passed months I worked a couple of hours each week my new project that I want to upload to lego Ideas. It would be awesome to have some feedback and support, in case you like it, when I upload the idea during december. Pictures upload seems to still be unreasonable small here. so ill put in the bricklink if that's allowed: https://www.bricklink.com/v3/studio/design.page?idModel=488753 let me know what you think ;)

    [LEGO IDEAS] Update to my LEGO Islanders Idea

    I have issues uploading images here. I opent the original png in photoshop and set export scale to 10% original size and also lower quality within the 10-50% range and export this as a more compact jpeg. The resulting images look very bad and I can't even upload more I tried in the edit of this post. Maybe you can tell me how to uplaod hilgher quality within the 20kb limit.
  7. Hey Checkout the update to my Lego Islanders themed anniversary set that is heavily inspired by the enchanted island statue which is now standing in a vibrant jungle environment. Please support this idea if you like it because I really need all the support to stay in the long game of getting 10k support and making this happen. SUPPORT NOW Islanders Spirit Beacon The islanders are a rare sight these days. It has been more than 20 years since the Islanders pointed spear and arrow at pirate and soldier alike. After many years of glorious combat the last of the proud warrior-zealots were defeated. Their strongest leader: shaman king Kahuka still walks the eternal planes. The Islanders enchanted island has been looted and pillaged, the tribes scattered to the winds. A beacon of hope remains deep in the jungle on one of the islands in the archipelago of many waters. A faceless warrior priestess of the old gods is gathering the scattered tribes. The whispers beneath her mask speaks of king Kahuka's return. Broken spears are mend, arrows sharpened, howling of restless spirits in the night. This "spirit beacon" is heavily inspired by the original statue design that came with the Lego Islanders enchanted island set 6278-1 in 1994. It's a scaled up version with many new details that is nice as a nostalgic reminder or as a new playset. The spirit beacon has multiple chunks that can be taken apart easily for different play configurations. The statue has a compartment in the back that can serve as a prison or inner sanctum. A trapdoor leads to a small dungeon compartment were captain cheekbones lurks A treasure chest is hidden behind the different detachable faces of the head. The remaining Islanders have adapted to use stealth instead of numbers, Therefore most of the warriors use the jungle mud and leaves to conceal themselves. Its probably problematic that they still use the same bright painted shields and faces :P The zealots and priestess paint themselves with the classic red paint of the Islanders They are worthy of invoking the spiritual essence that is embedded within the shrine of the beacon. Mini-figs as seen from left to right: Shaman king Kahuka's spirit, special translucent Islanders anniversary fig :) Faceless priestess, current leader, Zealot warrior; melee specialist, Scaled warrior; stealth specialist, Veteran warrior, defense specialist, Young blood warrior, endurance specialist, Man-hunter; path finding and ranged specialist, Captain cheekbones; annoyance specialist, Muddy Monkey, banana specialist. SUPPORT NOW

    I am completely Oblivious to how I can manage my own design with regular updates within the minimal format that this forum uses. Because this isn't my own post I am not sure if I am missing management aspects that I would have had if I posted this myself. I also saw that there was an Islanders sub category but I am not sure that category is still alive. So If this topic could be assigned to me directly on the correct forum page and somebody can explain me how to get very small sharp images I might be able to get some more feedback from people. These are some of the Questions and Ideas that I have. Thanks in Advance.
