  1. Hi all, I recently made this for a contest on Lego Ideas that challenged contestants to construct something with a twist on nature. I opted to create a butterfly out of plant parts since they pollinate flowers. The wings are made from tree leaves and decorated with various flower molds that Lego has produced. As an afterthought, I included the whole life cycle. The egg is a stud; the caterpillar is made of classic smileys since caterpillars often have odd patterns to scare off predators; and the chrysalis is made of minifig capes and Hobbit spiderwebs (the contest required entries to be 100% Lego). The whole thing is more or less to scale with real life, so I am sharing it in this forum. I hope you enjoy!

    Simple but nice little display. I like the story.

    I love this! Nice job rigging and the frog was a clever touch.

    [MOC] Ship: "The Falcon"

    Hi all, I made this ship a few months ago at the beginning of quarantine. I attempted to submit it to Ideas but ran into the same problem discussed here by others of being told it overlapped with the existing Pirate Bay. Nonetheless, I had fun and was pleased with the final result. I began with hull pieces from the Creator set Cruising Adventures and made a brick-built hull from there. It was fiddly while building but now is fairly solid. The mast and decks can be removed for interior access. Because of its small size, I used brick-built cannons as well. The arrangement of colors was a bit improvised due to limited supplies of dark blue and cool yellow, but I think it works. The captain's cabin is my favorite part of any ship, so I made sure to include a bed, a painting, a map, and other details. I opted for a semi-exposed gun deck like the original Black Seas Barracuda and new Creator Pirate Ship. There is a working capstan and a brick-built anchor that I quite like. The figurehead as well as the blue tooth plates came from a Fantastic Beasts set I picked up on sale some time ago. This is my first ship MOC, and I know little about rigs and sails, so I more or less copied the original Imperial Flagship in that regard and did string rigging on only the front. I hope you enjoy!

  5. Modular Island Fortress by Christian Techam, on Flickr Hi all, I am a new member here at EB but have read it for many years. I am sharing here a MOC of mine that I completed and uploaded to the Ideas site a year ago, the "Modular Island Fortress" (as of posting, it has over 100 days left). I love pirates and bluecoats, and I wanted to create a fort for my soldiers to call home. This one sits atop a rocky island sticking out of the sea with carved steps to the door. Its construction is modular not just in separating floors but also removeable walls as I hope to use this as a set for a stop motion film someday. On the ground floor are two cannons and a heavy wooden door. There are small holes in the walls for troops to fire through with muskets. The curved wall I made simply with hinge bricks. A hatch opens up allowing soldiers to descend by ladder into the hollowed out cellar in the rock. Stairs lead from the ground floor to the one above, where troops walk a small hallway including the door to the commander's quarters before emerging into the open air on the fortress roof. There are two swiveling cannons and a flagpole. I hope you enjoy! More pics on Ideas and my Flickr.

  6. I like this one and do not mind the brick-built hull and sails. I think I prefer it over the Brick Bounty because of the more interesting color scheme. I hope it comes out in the U.S. soon...
