A leader in his own way, King Kahuka was the big boss of another LEGO® pirate line faction - the Islanders.
The Islanders were released in the year of 1994, and were apparently second rivals to the pirates and Captain Redbeard, although Broadside and Woodhouse didn't appear to have that much to do with them. King Kahuka was much more active in the world than the two military men, and about equal to Redbeard as far as how regular they were. The Islander king appeared in 6236 King Kahuka's Throne, 6256 Islander Catamaran and 6278 Enchanted Island.
Captain Redbeard was a problem for the Islander king at first, then Captain Ironhook was a nuisance before Captain Redbeard returned to the scene with Ironhook as part of the crew.
A great addition to the Classic Pirate line was the Islander faction, and they were led by a more than suitable king all the way until they were discontinued in 2001.
