Pirates Will Be Pirates by AnakMoon

I really liked where you were going with this design. The only things I found wrong was your wall design and the waterfall. I'm just go...

Only one more week to go with classes, and then I'm free! Expect something new this Saturday 4/25. I'm literally dying to get back to my legos.
Going to be busy for the next few weeks with classes and finals coming up. So I mostly likely won't be posting until I'm done, but I will still be able to reply to messages.
Hi guys, Dante here with some news for you all. If you've been visiting regularly I've been updating quite a bit recently. That's because I'm currently on spring break for a whole week! So I just want to give you all a heads up that all this week I plan to be uploading quite a bit. I've currently got four projects I need to finish and post. One of them you've already seen, but not all of it. I'll be uploading that one tomorrow. As for the rest of the week, I'll be posting until Saturday. I'm planning on visiting the lego store in Ohio. Maybe they'll have some large scale models like the Chicago store I visited a few years back?

In my spare time, whenever I'm not in class or teaching one, I like to build custom mini Lego figurines. When I was about 5 I got my first mini scale Lego model. The only thing I can remember about it was that it was some kind of haunted train ride. Anyways, as the years went on I kept getting more and more Lego's, and as I kept getting more Lego's my building skills grew just as well. But what infuriated me the most was the mini-figures that came with the model kits. It's not that I "hate" them or anything like that, it's just that I hated the way they functioned. Let me explain. What I wanted out of a mini figure was something that was fully functional and pose able. With the mini figures provided, the only parts that could move were the hands, feet, and the head. But even those parts were limited in functionality because they could only move in one direction. So, I took it upon myself to make a custom Lego mini figure that could exceed Lego's own mini figure in every way possible. When I started designing my mini figure I had 3 goals in mind that I still follow to this day. 1. Size 2. Functionality 3. Fun factor. The models I first designed did meet my first and second rules, but when it came to my second rule I wasn't able to meet my standards for quite a while. After a few years, my designs grew and grew into something completely new that had spurred many new ideas and possibilities for me to take advantage of. With a few minor tweaks, I had developed anew style of mini figure design that easily met all 3 of my standards with flying colors. To this very day, I still use the same model frame for all of my designs. There isn't a custom design out there that has beaten my design at all. At least that's what I think from what I've seen from other designs.
