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...

Hello everyone. In my last post I made a mistake with some release dates. I noticed that I said I was going to release a new minifigure yesterday, but it wasn't supposed to come out until April. Right now I'm busy working on a special lego project for my school, and it's taking up a lot of my reserve parts. lol The project is a diorama that will be in the art show at my school, and will be for a charity event.The submission date for all works is on march 31st and april 1st, so I've been focusing all of my attention towards the project. The day for judging will be on april 3rd, so expect a lot of pictures from the show. I'll also do a few highlight pictures when I bring it back to my house on the 4th. But yeah, for those of you who were expecting a new minifigure this weekend I'm sorry about that. That was bad planning on my part. Going back to work now. Cya ^^

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.
