Have Fun With This Amazing LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Bank Heist MOC from Tyler.

From the tiniest adventure on the high seas with the Mini LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean The Black Pearl MOC, Tyler now set sail for his next LEGO build based on Disney’s latest film instalment, Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales. Based on a particular scene where Jack Sparrow pays a visit to the newest bank in town, Tyler’s next LEGO POTC MOC perfectly captures the irreverent fun and chaos that Jack Sparrow and his gang incited. Now, if you haven’t seen the film yet, these are just minor spoilers that I’m sure you will not mind brushing off aside. Nevertheless, the scene was hilariously great that Tyler opted to dedicate this LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Bank Heist MOC on this one.

On the outside, the bank features two opening doors in the front with some space for receiving bank customers and guests. Tyler even adds some neat details such as a tiled floor, which you can see by removing a portion of the roof. Further front, you have a bank vault with an opening door, filled with some nice gold elements.

Trusty old Gibbs also joins the fun in this bank heist scene with his team of horses pulling their prize across the street and throughout town. To make this MOC mobile, Tyler added some wheel pieces at the bottom to help it slide around easily.

If you’ve seen the film already, you know that at some point Jack and Gibbs ran into an obstacle when they reached a bridge that was too small for them to go through underneath. Since Jack has been such a never-say-die character, you can expect things to get crazy after this. They decided to crash into the bridge making the vault burst from behind the bank itself as the horses pull it through. To capture this fun and intense scene, Tyler cleverly recreated it by adding an awesome play feature to this MOC.

 

By pushing and sliding the second detachable roof top towards the bank entrance, the back side of the bank opens allowing the vault to be dragged by the horses attached to it. The vault itself is integrated within the bank that when you put it back in, it has a locking mechanism that snaps it back in place using a hinge and several rubber bands. This feature allows you to drag the bank together with the vault and when you slide the rooftop again, it releases the vault once more. It’s a really great play feature that shows how creative Tyler can be. Just have the bank’s rooftop bump on to something to release the vault and you can easily recreate that hilarious scene. Watch the video below and see how Tyler did it.

Now if you want to build this model, we have good news for you. All you have to do is head over at Buildbetterbricks.com and download the instructions.

Build Your Very Own Mini LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean The Black Pearl and Super Micro Milano MOCs!

A few days ago, we saw the release of the building instructions for some of Tyler’s awesome MOCs particularly the massive, UCS-styled LEGO GOTG Vol. 2 Milano and Baby Groot MOCs. In case you missed it, the instructions for building these awesome creations are now available at Buildbetterbricks.com for only $8 and $5 respectively.

This time, from the far reaches of the galaxy, Tyler’s brick-building adventure now brings us to the high seas with his next swashbuckling chibi-sized MOC, the Mini LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean The Black Pearl MOC. Done in the same style to that of the LEGO Star Wars Microfighters, this micro sized version of the larger LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean The Black Pearl (4184), is the closest miniature counterpart of the iconic ship that we can ever have, perhaps even better than that of LEGO’s polybag version the Mini Black Pearl (30130).

Tyler admits that this micro-sized Black Pearl was a bit of a challenge to make since packing all the details of the larger ship into one small build is not really a walk in the park.  We have several pieces placed on the side for its cannons, and the sail in itself has a very nice feel, with Tyler even managing to create that curved look with just a few sloped pieces. Needless to say, he was really glad how it turned out, especially once you place Jack Sparrow’s minifig at the helm of this mini Black Pearl. Here’s Tyler with more info on this impressive build.

So if you’re into micro-scaled versions of the most popular LEGO sets around, be sure to check out the building instructions for this Mini LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean The Black Pearl at Buildbetterbricks.com. For a minimal fee of only $3 USD, you can have the full instructions in downloadable PDF format, a parts list, and Stud.io file so you can easily import the parts list into Bricklink.

While you’re at it, be sure to check our FREE – yes, FREE – building instructions for our super micro-sized LEGO GOTG Vol. 2 Milano also available at Buildbetterbricks.com. This fun and easy MOC is a fitting contrast to its larger predecessor, with only 12 pieces needed to build it. Its Tyler way of paying it forward for the huge support that you’ve shown for his work.
