Not so long ago, Classic-Pirates.com member SirSven7 has prepared a comprehensive review of all Pirate sets released between 1989 and 1991. Now two more parts of his review are ready - the second part takes a look at 1992-1993 sets (enter Redcoats), and the third part is all about 1994-1995 sets (enter Islanders). This is indeed a valuable history lesson as far as LEGO Pirates is concerned, so don't hesitate to take a good look at those reviews!
Although the new Pirates of the Caribbean LEGO sets are not officialy in the stores yet (release date: April 2011), some people have already managed to get a few of them. Eurobricks member VerSen is one of them. And he's made an excellent review of Whitecap Bay (4194). We've already blogged some Russian reviews from VerSen, but this one is in English. So take a look at the mermaids, the gold bars, the bucket and more!

While some of us are currently anticipating the new Pirates of the Caribbean line, we must not forget about the sets that defined LEGO Pirates over 20 years ago! Classic-Pirates.com member SirSven7 has offered us a back to the roots of sorts by preparing a comprehensive review of all Pirate sets released between 1989 and 1991. This indeed is a very valuable source of information about those truly classic sets!
A new LEGO Pirates comic is coming out in februari. It has 48 pages and the age range is 6-8... But it may still be of interest for pirate fans because there's a topic going on about how many named LEGO Pirates are out there. And this comic can give us more background information about the world of brick-pirates.

Although we all like the real Lego blunderbuss a lot, the Brick Forge musket is also very nice. Apache has made a good review of both weapons with all the pro's and con's. Do you prefer the brown classic Lego musket, or the more realistic designed Brick Forge one?
