My Category for this round of the contest is Set Redesign:
Redesign a LEGO set to make it more accurate or cooler. Preferrably a mid-ranged set, e.g. between $20-$50, but it can be any set.
About this creation
I chose to do set 4181, Isla De Muerta, from the POTC line.
My MOC doesn't have everything going on in it that's in the set, just the duel between Barbosa and Jack Sparrow.
Captain, Jack Sparrow that is.
Specifically this is when Jack becomes Skelotized.
Well, I hope this is what the judges are looking for in this category.
I probably could have spent more time on this, but it is a speed contest after all.
In other news, the Lego collection is in complete disarray at the moment, making building less than enjoyable. Expect some MOCs better than my latest scraps when I get things all tidied up.
Maybe some more Guilds of Historica stuff?
The long awaited next Dalriada episode?
We shall see...
Nice! The build's excellent, but the rocks are oddly coloured. Are they dark bley or some blueish colour? While I have no problem with that aspect, mixing it with old grey is a bit off-putting. I realize the effect you were going for, but in this scale it didn't really work. Still, over-all great work!
I think a bit of focused lightning from above and lots of darkness/shadows around would have been wonderful here. You might want to give it a try next time (when it's appropriate). Oh, and your little Oswald is still wearing his Santa Claus cap ;o)

Great work, this set is certainly much cooler and more accurate now.
