The Pirate’s Cove is one of those legendary locations. A skull shaped rock or fortress hidden on a deserted island. This Lego “Pirate’s Cove” is created by CheeseyStudios. Built as an entry into Vignweek 2020. The challenge was to create a Lego vignette with a Pirate them. The end result has some really interesting ideas. The ocean water is floated two studs above the base, achieved by a a layer of transparent plates. The effect works well, and the blue light that shines through the plates onto the ocean floor looks great. The mini pirate ship has all the expected details, cannons, sails, crows nests, captains cabin, etc. A lot of of stuff to pack into such a small build. The island features a few tropical trees. And, the 1×1 round brown pieces work surprisingly well as palm tree trunks. The rocky skull design is instantly recognizable, if maybe a little too attention grabbing for pirate work.
