The HMS Gasp©e

The Gasp©e Affair was a significant event in the American Revolution. 

The HMS Gasp©e, a British revenue schooner that had been vigorously enforcing unpopulair trade regulations ran aground in shallow water, on June 9, 1772 near what is now known as Gaspee Point in the city of  Warwick, Rhode Island while chasing the packet boat Hannah.

In an act of defiance that gained considerable notoriety, the ship was attacked, boarded, stripped of valuables and torched by American patriots led by Abraham Whipple. Click here  to read more about it on Wikipedia!

So come on over to the Pirates forum to discuss SirNadroj's MOC: The Gasp©e Affair!

PICTORIAL REVIEW: 6192 Pirate Construction Set by TheBrickster

Wednesday, November 19th, 2008

TheBrickster seems to be currently spending a lot of his free time in the Name Of The Holy Brick, just hours after his previous reviews he made another pictorial review about this fantastic Pirate Construction Set (6192). Thank you TheBrickster!

A bit more info: For the first time LEGO releases a small scala of Construction Sets, something closely linked to the Creator sets, but still a bit different. For now, there is one Pirates, one City and one Castle Construction set, although I believe they might develop more if this is a succes (and going by this great review, I think they will sell very well!).

This is a good initiative from LEGO!

This is a good initiative from LEGO!

They cost 10 USD and the set is recommended for ages 4 to 7, but because of the good MOC parts, the unique minifig and the low price, this Pirate Construction set will appeal to a lot of AFOLs as well!

Head your merry way over to the LEGO Pirates forum to read the  6192 Pirate Construction Set Review by the Brickster!
