    LEGO 10320 Eldorado Fortress - MOC / MOD Thread

    Not too original, but I squeezed out every white piece I had to make this. I wish I had more and different parts, but I used only what I had. Shout out to Trikus and his mod. I didn't use his parts or instructions, but I followed his lead and ended using his basic set up for the inside when the room seemed too crowed with a bed I put in there. A bit crowded up there. I'm gonna take out one cannon and brick build a swivel cannon down the road.

    [TC] Ironhook the Third and Sharktooth Tower

    A every vote for Sharktooth Tower helps wake Nathaniel Napsalot. Will our Stalwart fisherman wake in time to rescue his beloved Captain, or will Ironhook the Third get fished out of these waters missing a few limbs like his gramps?
  4. Sooo soooo cool. I've watched this video multiple times now showing it to different folks. So good, so cool

    BrickLink Designer Program Series 5 - START BUILDING!

    I sure wish that program to build stuff would work on an android phone. I don't have a PC and it sucks not getting to try my hand at this sort of thing

    [POLL] Best Pirates Set

    Enchanted Island all the way. So much play opportunities with the invading Pirates. Both factions getting cloth sails goes a long way. All those colors and so big. A true island playset with lush vegetation and wildlife. If I could have only ONE set, that would be it.

    [TC] Ironhook the Third and Sharktooth Tower

    Thank you. It was quite a process doing all that on my phone and doing what you said was impossible with the imgur app, but I managed to do it by disabling the app and using the web browser. Took about 30 minutes to figure it out and then do it. But thank you, I wouldn't have been able to without your help

    [TC] Ironhook the Third and Sharktooth Tower

    I wish I knew how to do this. I tried uploading photos and it said they were too big. I tried using the insert other media and copy/pasted the link to an image, but it wouldn't accept the link. So in the end, I just copy/pasted the link to the picture instead of inserting it on to the page. But I hope that doesn't stop folks from. Clicking the links and looking at my pictures where I placed them in my story. If you can explain how I would do what you did there, I would be happy to edit my main post to have photos show up correctly. I am sorry for the trouble with it.

    Challenge I: A Storm Brewing

    I am so pumped to finally share this with you guys. I've been working on it literally since the day after my original post in this thread, February Third. And I just finished it tonight and have it ready to share with you all. Ironhook the Third and Sharktooth Tower
  10. I am very happy and proud to share this with you guys. I've been working on it for past two months, slowly tweaking and adjusting the model in my free time, as well as the fun of day dreaming and brainstorming a story and characters for the world of the Brick Seas. And I must not forget reading all the lore on lunch breaks after discovering these forums, what a joy. This build is inspired by a MOC I built as a child from my Volcano Island set. It was fun remembering playing as a kid while putting this together, and I found myself playing a little as an adult too, which I hadn't done in nearly 30 years haha. It was quite fun and has changed my outlook on 'adult lego' building since getting back into it roughly 5 years ago and I think I will be building to play for now on instead of building to display! I don't have a wealth of parts to draw from and build with; but parts I used were two Scary Pirate Island GWP sets, the Pirate Playground GWP set, a Pirate VIP pack, I took apart and cannibalized my Star Wars Landspeeder I had gotten a few years ago, and I used up almost all my extra pieces I had stored away in Tupperware. All in all, I'm super happy I managed to pull it off with the parts I had, and the almost non-existence of my leftover pieces afterwards. I also fit in a light brick I took out of a previous MOC I built a year ago, though I kept that MOC in tact and did not use any other parts from it. _____________ Welcome to Sharktooth Tower, home of Ironhook The Third. Said to be the great grandson to the legendary Pirate Lord Ironhook, but no one knows for sure and you better not ask ask him about it. They say his father took up the Jolly Roger flag as Ironhook Jr to reclaim his "heritage" and can still be found plundering the seas in Halos to this day. But Ironhook the Third prefers his piracy from afar, letting the loot come to him. With his base of operations acting as a storehouse and bank for ill-gotten goods, he has amassed a fortune of information as well as wealth of gold, a self proclaimed Spy King of the Sea. Though none who know would speak the location, they say the dread den of dogfish stews in a perpetual fog that never lifts. Tooth like rocks and a shroud of heavy mist keep it protected just as much as the fabled canon The Thresher, that sits atop the tower. This terrible Tower juts out of and above a cave in the fearsome Visage of a hungry shark, seemingly swimming in the never lifting haze. Torch lit eyes, it's open maw of toothy rocks hungry for any unfortunate souls that dare raid this stronghold. No Oleander or Corlander have ever set eyes on this frightful fortress and lived. The secret location of Sharktooth Tower is known by few. All who know it, first meet Flotsam Frank. A slippery seal, Flotsam Frank is Ironhook's main go-between and scout, making first contact and brokering with fellow scallywags, before loot is stored away in the deep belly of the Shark's cave. Ironhook is sly, but he is only as good as the men he surrounds himself with. And it's a good thing he's fostered an indomitable crew. Flotsam Frank is all too reliable, but most frequently floating along the stud strone seas. When Ironhook needs a job done, he relies on his right hand man, Mickie Two-Hands. Mickie is quite proud all his appendages and face print are in fact, but he gets his name because he does the work of two men. Quite the opposite of Mickie, the last crewman of Ironhook's small band is Nathaniel Napsalot. With incredible luck and a 'too optimistic' attitude that won't quit, Nathaniel Napsalot is a Privateer who's hard to hate, but still pushes the limit. A bad habit of sleeping on the job always lands him ire of of his cave camping compatriots. But you've never seen a fisherman as fierce as he, nor a friend so Jolly. A stalwart but sleepy guard, his spectacular luck seemingly always flipping his frequent naps into fortune's favor. I've heard rumor that Flotsam Frank has recently made brush pass with several shadow contacts of the Continental Council, and it's no secret Ironhook weeps for no spilt Oleander's blood. But the Thresher canon always bellows smoke on sight of the Corlander flag, and an Eslandolan alliance with such scoundrels could threaten relations. One has to wonder why Eslandola´╗┐ would want an alliance with such a fiend that fancies himself Spy Kings of the Brick Seas. _____________________ I hope you enjoyed my MOC of Sharktooth Tower and the fun characters that inhabit it. They are very happy to meet you I used the glow of an electric fireplace to simulate the perpetual fog, though only in some photos as it hinders view of the MOC itself. For that same reason of atmosphere, I did not use the light brick in my cave for all photos, as it is quite bright. I had many issues uploading photos to this site and it would not let me insert the URLs as inserted media, but I posted the links to each photo. I am also unclear if this entry would be factored into Category A or Category B. I intended it for Category B, as I came up with a story for my characters and their interactions in the world. But I see lots of people entered Category A and also wrote stories to go along with a scene, so I am unsure. Please place it where it belongs. I saw on the entry page we can enter both and have the category A included in our category B if we had multiples, but I only have this one build I made and am unclear if it would count for both A and B. I tried to tie in to the lore the Brick Seas, but also a tie to Ironhook who was the Pirate that ruled the seas of my childhood imagination. He was the dread of both Imperials and Islanders alike in my 8 year old mitts. Thank you for looking at my build and meeting my crew.
  11. Laaaaaaaame. Not a single Pirate set, ridiculous with all the good ones submitted this round. I was super duper rooting for that Imperial Trading Post and tge Imperial Sloop Neptune. But gosh, they were all so good. I hope everyone resubmits for round 5.

    [POLL] Next Pirates GWP

    All real good choices, but in the end I was torn between Sabre Island and Lagoon Lockup. In the end I went with Lagoon because it has a little more going on story wise, but I'd love to see a modern version of either. I would love to see a brand new Islanders set though, that would be super duper exciting

    [ENTRY] Cutless Reach

    Possibly the greatest Imperial MOC ever made. Not a remake of any classic set, but clearly inspired by. It's a simple and small build with endless play possibilities. I love the small Canon on the pirate's boat. The interior of the building has small detail, but the space is open and clearly made for play. It has a jail, which all good "location" sets of this theme should have in some capacity. You have a parrot and you have a shark! A buried treasure map has so much play potential. What's in the gray chest? Is it an armory supply? Such a wonderful Possibly the greatest Imperial MOC ever made. Not a remake of any classic set, but clearly inspired by.
