  1. I think Max Villano was simply the name used in the UK. The Adventurers characters have so many different names in different countries! Edit: found the reference, on page 12 of this magazine: https://archive.org/details/BricksNPieces-January1999-Miniland/page/n11/mode/2up

    [SPC] Cat A - Icelanders and Spyrates

    Here are the hardy Icelanders and their nemesis the cunning Spyrates. The Icelanders live in a frozen paradise, spending their time exploring glaciers, making snow angels and hiding treasure in ice caves. For protection against thieving Spyrates, they have ice spears and a saw bow. They also have head lamps for exploring dark ice caves and a communications backpack for staying connected to the base. The Spyrates have been spying on the Icelanders and they want that treasure! The charming droid captain and his robo-parrot P011-y have a treasure datacard that will lead them straight to it. They are accompanied by their crew with a handheld laser cannon and a torch sabre.

    [SPC] Cat B - Hover Raft

    Here is my entry for the Space Pirates contest: the Hover Raft. Instead of pirates, we have Spyrates (because it is Spyrius themed ). Three bold Spyrates sail their raft through space in search of plunder. Two crew members wield a handheld laser cannon and a sabre torch, whilst the charming droid captain gives commands, accompanied by his robo-parrot, P011-y. Will the Spyrates find the treasure? Follow the captain's treasure datacard to find out. 01011000 marks the spot! Some more views: As you may have guessed, this is based on 6257 Castaway's Raft. I tried to keep a similar profile and simplicity of design. I did turn the shark into a parrot, though! I hope you like it!

    [ENTRY] 6269 Islander Palace

    CALLING ALL LEGO MANIACS! Set your time machines for 1994! ************************************************************* We are delighted to introduce to you one of the most exciting sets from the new LEGO SYSTEM Indigo Islanders range. The Indigo Chief's Palace (set 6269) is located next to a hidden river and is filled with brilliant features. You'll find a narrow bridge to the Indigo Chief's throne room and a hidden treasure cave underneath. A mysterious statue guards the palace entrance from pirates who want to steal the treasure. Pirates who climb the ladder are in for a surprise: you can trigger a secret trap door and send them tumbling out of the mouth of the statue and into the river below, where the hungry crocodile waits. The Chief and two Islanders are included, as well as a canoe, chest of gold and pirate on a raft. Below are some pictures of the many thrilling adventures that await you in this new set. ************************************************************* Or, if you're in North America: Hey LEGO Maniacs! Check out the all new Islanders collection, with hidden coves, trick bridges, secret trap doors, and mysterious catamarans. It's enough to make your bricks spin! Only a LEGO Maniac like you can discover the Islanders' secrets. Check out the 6269 Islander Palace below, where the King, Queen, and palace guard protect their treasure from the thieving pirate! You can order the 6269 Islander Palace as well as all the other new Islanders sets from Shop at Home! We hope you enjoy this new set, and until next time, happy building!
  9. Great video! I am all about Adventurers character names. That game design document from 1997 is funny (King ROM DOT COM ). According to The Secret Life of LEGO Bricks, the Adventurers theme was approved at the same time as the Western theme, so it was presumably in advanced stages of design in 1997, so I wonder if any of those names are original names for the minifigures, or if they were unique to the game concept.

    [SPC] Cat B - Hover Raft

    I am glad you like it! The wheels are what inspired the model, replacing the barrels in the original.

    [Contest] Space Pirates - Back to the Carribean Galaxy!

    For Category B, is it possible to rebuild two smaller pirates sets in one entry, or does it have to be a rebuild of just one set?

    [MOC] Diocletian's Palace

    The construction of the roofs of the corner towers captures the Mediterranean look perfectly!

    [MOC] Monastry

    Very nice! The cross almost hovering in the circle on the front of the church is a cool effect.

    Buildings in Lego City street layout

    Hi! The first two buildings on the left are from 10184 Town Plan: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?S=10184-1#T=S&O=%7B%22iconly%22:0%7D I am not sure about the third.
  15. Thank you for your sympathy. Yes, I agree and I certainly wouldn't repeat that theme for a future contest any time soon. Pity, because that is why I entered. I love seeing other people's MOCs, but for various reasons, I can't/don't want to build huge models in that style. Creating a set, however, was something I could do. We "new sets" still got outvoted by the "re-releases", though, as I suspected we would.

    [CONTEST] Return of the Classic Pirates - WINNERS

    Congratulations to the winners! I thought I might be one of the few Islanders entries, but we ended up with quite a few at the top.

    [CONTEST] Return of the Classic Pirates - Vote Counting

    It was the vote cast by Marooned Marin. There is no row in the spreadsheet for his votes, so I expect the other entries he voted for are also missing votes.

    [CONTEST] Return of the Classic Pirates - Vote Counting

    I was checking my votes, and it seems Marooned Marin's votes are missing from the spreadsheet. So I have one more vote making 17 (as well as the unfortunate one from Tom Skippy that does not count).

    [CONTEST] Return of the Classic Pirates - Vote Counting

    Thanks for the tally! By my count, my model also has 14 votes at the moment (not that I've been keeping track ). So we have a three-way tie at the moment!

    [ENTRY] 6269 Islander Palace

    Thank you! I agree there is room for an extra islander. The technical reason why there isn't one has to do with the feathers/horns on their heads. Those elements come on a sprue of one feather piece with two horn pieces. So I have to use the elements in that ratio. Adding another islander would require me to remove a horn piece from the roof or the statue, which I did not want to do. So that is the reason: the technicalities of trying to design a set rather than a MOC.

    [ENTRY] 6269 Islander Palace

    Thank you! I like how the trapdoor turned out also. I tried to make it very much in the style of other sets from the period.

    [ENTRY] 6269 Islander Palace

    Thank you! I love building in classic styles. I pulled an original catalogue from 1995 out of my archives to scan for the last image.

    [ENTRY] Base impériale

    Très bien! J'adore le style classique, particulièrement la petite île. Et l'histoire des pirates est bien faite. Bien sûr, l'océan au-dessous n'est pas de style officiel, mais c'est joli quand même.

    [ENTRY] 6269 Islander Palace

    I'm glad you like it! That's one of my favourite parts, too.
