I've been known to sift through the vacuum bag to retrieve LEGO elements, so I truly understand the notion of this MOC by builder eurotrash48903, LEGO is treasure. Of course it's supposed to represent a treasure chest full of priceless riches, and even though the bricks aren't gold, they're still precious to me.
I knew raccoons are attracted to shiny things, dogs bury bones and squirrels hide nuts, but who knew sharks were into treasure? If this MOC by LEGO 7 is any indication they seem to be a bit preoccupied by the doubloons, if you know what I mean. Makes you wonder about all those shipwrecks though doesn't it, hmmmm...
The life of a pirate isn't all clashing sword fights and plundering treasure. Sometimes you just need a break from all the piracy and adventure on the high seas and just have a sit down. Like Ella "Tall Tide" Kneebone here, I can't decide if she looks pensive, exhausted or just bored. But judging by that treasure, she's earned a little "down time".
Dear Cardinal Augustus,
Pirates once again attacked the church of St. Lucia today. There were no fatalities this time but docent Marcus received quite a knock on the head. We really need to address the issues stemming from the misunderstanding about the steps of the church. How that cartographer misheard "measure of truth" as "treasure of blue" is mind-boggling, but it's been nothing but trouble since. Whatever you can do would be most appreciated.
Docent Jorge, St. Lucia church
PS, send my regards to Mark of Falworth, I'm a big fan of his work.
