Currently the Custom Pirate LEGO Mini-Figures are discussed in the Minifig Customisation Workshop which is outside of the LEGO Pirates Forum.

While this forum is a great asset to Eurobricks, the Classic-Pirates.com Crew is pondering whether the Pirate MOC Forum would a better place to discuss Custom Pirate Mini-figures.

So we’re curious to know where you would prefer.

Please visit the LEGO Pirates Forum and vote in the poll.

The NEW Shipyard Ranking System

Sunday, January 25th, 2009

Shipyard Ranking System Announcement

For many months now a team of dedicated volunteers have been working within The Shipyard to produce the content which appears daily on the frontpage of Classic-Pirates.com.

"The Shipyard?" you ask?  The Shipyard is a hidden VIP sub-forum within the LEGO Pirates Forum where volunteers work on special projects.

We want to begin rewarding our volunteers for their contributions so we're implementing a ranking system which enables them to receive promotions for the quality and quantity of their contributions.   Each rank has it's own tag and special priveleges which increase with each rank. There will also be contests exclusive to The Shipyard so only those who are part of the Ranking System will be able to participate.

Get yourself to the LEGO Pirates Forum to learn more
about the NEW Shipyard Ranking System!

MISB Pirate LEGO Ships

Friday, January 2nd, 2009

Got some cash you want to spend in the new year? Well how about buying a Mint In Sealed Box Pirate LEGO Ship!

MISB 6290 Red Beard Runner

Ending on eBay in the very near future is this MISB 6290 Red Beard Runner, perhaps a little pricey for some but if it doesn't sell maybe the seller will lower the price next time round.

Or perhaps you'd like an absolute bargain!

MISB 6285 Black Seas Barracuda

What an awesome deal!  An original 6285 Black Seas Barracuda around $100 at the time of writing - yes that's right, only bid to around $100!  This set can sell for over $500 in the hands of a competent auctioneer so don't miss out on this potential bargain.

MISB 10040 Black Seas Barracuda

And here we have a Legend re-release of the Black Seas Barracuda for just under $500 - definitely not as friendly to your finances as the previous auction but it is a realistic price to pay.

Happy bidding and may you be successful in procuring a new ship to build or preserve in MISB condition!
