SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t seen POTC Dead Men Tell No Tales yet and won’t mind any major spoilers, go ahead and watch this awesome MOC from Tyler. Just don’t be upset with him, OK? So on with the show!
If you had a blast building Tyler’s previous LEGO POTC Dead Men Tell No Tales Caribbean Bank Heist MOC, then you’ll surely love this next wish set from our ace builder extraordinaire. One of the cliffhanger (or should I say a water wall hanger) scenes from the film, is when the teams of Capt. Jack Sparrow and Capt. Armando Salazar finally discovered the whereabouts of the mysterious Trident of Poseidon. With the ocean parted before them, the battle-hardened seafarers eventually go all out in their fight to possess the Trident. Tyler recreates this scene, and comes up with a very nice set that can easily pass as an official LEGO POTC set, and even better.
This latest POTC inspired creation from Tyler comes with several play features, consisting of roughly three builds. First off, we have walls of water recreated using blue translucent or transparent plates, surrounding a middle section. It’s typical of Tyler to add some cool details on these water wall builds such as the gray pieces that seems to stick out from the surface of the walls to recreate the effects of rock-like outcroppings as you see in the film (if you saw it already, that is).
The middle section of this MOC consists of a replica of the ocean floor, with several corals and aquatic fauna, and of course the fabled Trident of Poseidon. The coral section highlights Poseidon’s Trident which, if you take it out from its base, even breaks in two to break all the spells that binds the ocean.
There are also spots in the coral section where you can put the minifigure versions of Capt. Jack Sparrow and Capt. Armando Salazar as they battle it out to take possession of the Trident.
Tyler didn’t shy away from adding several details on the water wall such as a couple of sea weed elements, barnacles using 1×1 round plates, and the rock formations on the sides where you can even place a minifigure on top of it. The right side of the water wall also highlights plenty of play features such as a transparent Technic beam that suspends an anchor holding the minifig versions of Capt. Barbossa and Carina. I guess I will not say that much about the reason why they’re up there in the first place since it’s one of the film’s major story plots.
