review pirates caribbean cutlasses swords holders isla muerta sets 4181 barbossa jack sparrow elizabeth swann gold cortez

Lots of treasure! Could it be any better for a pirate?

The first sets of the upcoming LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean line are getting in the stores and the first reviews are slowly getting on our forums. One of the first of them is a review of Isla de Muerta by Eurobricks member WhiteFang. This set has some very good points. Especially the new parts like compasses and sword holders are very appealing. It also has some less good points though. But according to most of our members, the set is well worth it. What do you think?

HMS Pickle by Dread Pirate Wesley

ship pickle trafalgar topsail schooner nelson horatio hms masts windlass guns stern bow sprit brickbuilt hull details decks

Perhaps the most famous ship of Trafalgar outside of HMS Victory.

Although the Battle of Trafalgar is known for a fight between ships of the line, there were also a few very small vessels present. HMS Pickle was one of them. A small but also a very fast ship. She was also the first ship to bring news of the victory at Trafalgar (and Nelson's death) to England just 14 days after the battle. Eurobricks member Dread Pirate Wesley has made this fine vessel in LEGO and he did an excellent job. Even more because it's his first attempt at a historical ship.

See more of this creation in the forum.
