|Announcing... The Jolly Roger Contest!
FC Team 27 XII 09
So, the village has been pillaged, the shack has been sacked, and the cape has been raped.
What's a poor ol' Pirate left to do? Well, swash yer buckles me hearties,
and prepare yerself for the biggest and baddest LEGO Pirates contest of all time!! It's the Forbidden Cove's Jolly Roger Contest, and ye can read all about it here.
We are pleased to offer a variety of categories, with a fine LEGO prize for each winning entry!
Some categories require small-sized creations, while others need larger ones - it's up to you to challenge yourself and build your best!
Everyone, even with a limited supply of bricks, should be able to enter several categories. Creativity is what counts, not who owns the most LEGO.
Check out the contest prizes!
Eight vintage LEGO Pirate sets including the original Caribbean Clipper are treasure for the taking!
There are also custom accessories, rare elements, and Imperial soldier minifigs! And, to the best Pirate builder of them all, goes a very special prize - the brand-new 10210 Imperial Flagship!!
Aye, the booty is indeed bountiful!
Special thanks to the anonymous donors, BrickArms, and The LEGO Group for donating prizes.
The rules can be found here, and a discussion of the contest in this thread. Enjoy!
Update: You may now submit entries here.
