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. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/b1194f8b-8ed6-4aab-adf4-d13d7a9a24cb 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.

[pid][/pid]234C You might have seen this temple before in my first entry of the TOR III (the dramatic sculpture incident). I heavely relied on a raised baseplate for the temple architecture, overall it's a pretty simple creation. Some people really don't like the use of raised baseplates, burps and lurps while I think they're perfect when you don't have a lot of parts to spare, like I do, I'm currently in some sort of crisis, an old/new Gray crisis, I have too few of either to build something of decent size and I hate to combine them . The stone kahuka head was simply copied from the official Islander sets. Commander RedHat and other redcoats will remember this place . The Dramatic Sculpture. Attack! (this picture didn't make it to the final comic, had to make a selection to qualify for the 10 panel limit.) More pictures in my Brickshelf Gallery.
