Underwater At The Coral Island Sandbar

W Navarre Lego Coral Island Sandbar

If it wasn’t for the Pirate business, this Lego Coral Island Sandbar looks like a great place to vacation and scuba dive. Too bad, these Pirates are in the middle of some sort of hostage exchange. I would bet this doesn’t end well. Of course the stand out feature of this Lego MOC are not the Pirates but the island. The underwater part is especially nice. By using the newer pastel colors and putting a transparent blue ceiling the effect of water/underwater is achieved. The use of azure Lego Minifigure hands as some of the coral is perfect. This scene is teeming with Lego sea life.

The Coral Island is also a part of The Tourney, a fantasy role-playing Lego building tournament.

Tan’thu The Ancient Entity – A Horrific Lego MOC

Micah Beideman Horrific Lego Tan'thu MOC

Lovecraftian Horrors are something you do not see so much in Lego. There has been a rise in their interest and Lego has even tried creating their own (Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum – 76060). Here is Micah Beideman’s horrific Lego monster, titled Tan’thu: The Ancient Entity. This MOC does a great job of creating the bulging and bulbous body. The eyes and tentacles display a lot of “inside-out” Lego tires. A somewhat popular technique in MOCs these days. The gaping maw is technically impressive. The repetition of elements works extremely well. And, by including a ship (at the center of the display) acting as a reference the humongous size of this Entity is presented.

If you were wondering exactly what was going on behind the scenes to create this beast. Check out the assembly of some of the eyes below. There are over 70 eyes that needed to be built.

Finn the Human, Finn the Doctor, or is it Finn the Superman?

ColmiYveul Lego Finn the Superman

Lego has created one of the most funny Minifigure heads in their new Lego Dimensions Adventure Time Level Pack. Finn the Human has a goofy smile, and on the back side a derpy smile. Reddit user ColmiYveul realized the potential that this piece had and combined it with other well known Lego Minifigures. As you can see the results are something to remember. Then they quickly put together a small series with Tolkien and Disney Minifigs.

If you want to make your own, the good news is that the Adventure Time Level Pack is new, and still in stock at most retailers. Who knew one piece could has so many uses.

Sail The Lego Seas In The Little Victory Ship

Nick Barrett's Lego Ship Little Victory Sails

Most Lego ships are either huge or very tiny. It is rare to see something in between. This Lego MOC titled The Little Victory is a perfect example of doing something creative in Lego. This ship is the creation of Nick Barrett, who also created the massive HMS Victory (here). The HMS was Minifigure scale, which translated to a ship made out of thousands and thousands of Lego bricks. This mini version is a faithful recreation. It features three gun decks, three masts, brick built sails, and custom rigging.  This ship is impressive, and only little in scale.

Borris, Momo, Admiral Horrace, & Arnold: Lego Pirate Jigbots + Argali the Iron Jigbot

Lego Pirate Jigbots

“Avast ye bots big and small!
We be the jigbot pirates, proud and tall.
Our heads be flappy and our pay is crappy.
But the job is fun! with lots of Rum!
So we be pillaging yee all.”

If you have ever wondered what you could use your Lego Star Wars planets (+ Death Star) for then look no further. You can create a Jigbot. These surprisingly cute robots are a combination of Lego pieces, Bionicle pieces, and Technic pieces. These Lego pirate Jigbots are the result of a team build, specifically Team Jigsaw, which consists of Simon Liu, Nick V, Lego Junkie, and Legonardo Davidy. Borris the Pirate was created in 2013, and a little over a year latter was joined by Momo the Pirate, Admiral Horrace, and Arnold the Pirate.

LegonardoDavidy's Lego Jigbot Admiral Horrace

“Sailing the seven seas taking, searching for pirate scum and bringing their days of looting and pillaging to an end, recruiting them as toilet cleaners and barrel makers for his majesty the King. More barrels = more ale, and the toilets… yeah. Pirate Jigbots beware!” — Legonardo Davidy

LegoJunkie's Lego Jigbot Momo The Pirate

Momo the Pirate is a typical ragtag bandit. Put together with a more random assortment of parts then the other Jigbots.

NickV's Lego Jigbot Borris The Pirate

“Although intended for destruction and world domination, Borris has chosen to instead live his life as a free-spirited, swash-buckling pirate. With his rusty cutlass and his bottle ‘o rum always at hand, nothing excites Borris more than adventure, trespassing and pillaging minifig towns.” — Nick V.

The only odd ball is Argali the Iron Jigbot. Not actually part of the Pirate Jigbots. Argali was originally built for an Iron Builder Competition.

“Argali is a peculiar fellow, who enjoys classy activities such as kite-sailing, scarf making, and abstract conversation. Also known as the Giver of Bagpipes, Argali is not mentally stable, and can not be trusted.”

The Thousand Sunny, A Lego One Piece MOC

Alex Jones's Lego One Piece Thousand Sunny MOC

The Thousand Sunny (サウザンドサニー号) is a pirate ship belonging to The Straw Hat Pirates. Appearing in the anime and manga titled One Piece. It features a green lawn planted on the deck, a lion for a figurehead (often mistaken for a sunflower or the sun), a slide, a swing, a library, and an observation tower. All of the details have been replicated here in this MOC created Alex Jones, titled Thousand Sunny. The super vibrant colors, gigantic cartoon style logo on the sails, and huge figurehead really make this design stand out from all other Lego Pirate Ships. If you look carefully you can spot a custom Lego Monkey D. Luffy (Straw Hat) standing on the deck.

A Lego Black Seas Barracuda (6285) Mini

BangooH's Lego Black Seas Barracuda 6285 Mini

Lego has a few sets that will forever be remembered. Each of the Lego themes have had a few of such sets over the decades. For Lego Pirates the most famous set is the Black Seas Barracuda (6285) from 1989. There was even a rerelease in 2002 called Black Seas Barracuda (10040) which had a few different pieces, but ultimately looked the same. These two sets are 13 years apart. Applying this information to today, it would mean that 2015 is due for another release. Maybe a mini Barracuda could happen. This example has been created by Bangoo H. The Mini Black Seas Barracuda has perfectly built brick sails, two mini pirate flags, and even some basic rigging. Everything about the original is represented here, even anchor. Maybe someday we will see an official Lego Mini Barracuda… maybe.

The Sea Hawk, a Magnificent Lego Galleon

Janjy Giggins's Lego Galleon MOC, The Sea Hawk

“They arrived at the docks and Durstan saw it: his own ship, repainted in the King’s colours but as proud as when he’d last seen it quarter of a century ago.

The Sea Hawk.

The King himself was there to see them off. Durstan swore his loyalty and promised to do what he could to restore order. And then they took to sea, and finally he was homeward-bound again.”

Janjy Giggins's Lego Galleon, The Sea Hawk Crew

The Sea Hawk is one of the most grand Lego galleons ever built. It is a large Minifigure scale MOC ship. The overall shape, size, and volume of this ship is spot on. It also features custom sails, and detailed rigging. The end result is amazing. It also shows how some solid Photoshop skills can make an MOC even more believable.

The Sea Hawk is the first MOC created by Janjy Giggins. Which is going to be hard to top with future builds.

The Port of Quebec, A Lego Pirate MOC

Mattiusxavier's Port of Quebec, A Lego Pirate MOC Detail

“Captain Lafayette was proud of his crew, they had sailed with the main fleet into the Caribbean and helped bring terrible ruin to the Pirate Scum lurking on those light blue seas and now were enjoying a much deserved return back to their home port in Québec. Little did Lafayette know thought that some local Pirate Scum were planning a heist, not just any heist but a heist to steal his ship.”

The Port of Québec is an amazing Lego Pirate MOC. Built by Mattius Xavier for Beyond the New World: Colonialism, a Flickr group building Lego MOCs focused on the exploitation and colonization of the Americas. These type of groups have been increasing in popularity, which is a great thing, because they produce some amazing stuff. The Port of Québec looks like a very busy seaport. The use of the newer expressive Lego Minifigure heads adds a lot of life to the display. Plus the trans-blue water looks great. There is a lot of action in this scene.
