As you can see in the above picture the beard piece makes an official apperance in a Pirate set for first time ever and it's very suited to the Robin Crusoesque mini-figure which it adorns.

Once again Lego12 has packed his review with glorious pictures, so get yourself to the Pirate LEGO Forum to feast your eyes upon them!

Forum user Paul Cantu has also created a review of 6241 Loot Island, while not as comprehensive as Lego12's review it offers a different perspective of the set.

So once again, get your to the Pirate LEGO Forum to read Paul Cantu's 6241 Loot Island review.

MISB 6286 Skulls Eye Schooner

MISB Skulls Eye Schooners are quite rare now and tend to fetch quite high prices on eBay, sometimes exceeding the US$500 mark.  They could be considered even rarer than the equally popular 6285 Black Seas Barracuda, which enjoyed a Legend re-release back in 2002.

If you have a high disposable income check out the eBay auction page or visit our Mint In Seal Box Madness thread where you'll find dozens of Mint In Sealed Box Pirate LEGO sets waiting to be purchased!
