REVIEW: 850839 Pirate Minifigure Pack by WhiteFang

Discuss 850839 Pirate Minifigure Pack in the forum.

Money for old rope, or a sign of things to come?

This new Pirates minifigure pack proves that there's still some life in the body, but is it worth it? Our own WhiteFang has taken it upon himself to answer that question in his review of 850839 Pirate Minifigure Pack. Is TLG just clearing out its stock of spare parts, or are there yet further plans for the theme? You decide!

6260 – Shipwreck Island Review by Boomchil

6260 - Shipwreck Island

It may be small, but it's a worthy addition to any pirate layout. Two minifigs, two animals, a printed island baseplate and gold! This maybe one of the best values in the line, from way back in 1989. Check out the full MISB unboxing and review and decide for yourself.

Lagoon Lock-Up Review by Boomchil

LEGO Pirate Lagoon Lock-Up Review Boomchil

A classic never dies, unlike the Bluecoats, who will die in horrible, unthinkable, tragic, and hilarious ways in the TOR III

Do you ever get a sense of nostalgia?  Do you ever wish LEGO would go back to yesteryear?'s own Boomchil had that same feeling when he picked up a pile of classic sets to review!  This review is for the classic 6267 Lagoon Lock-Up, a set featuring the periwinkle pansies Bluecoat soldiers from 1991.  The set cost Boomchil a staggering $80.00 USD to pick it up on Bricklink, so don't let his investment go to waste, and check out the excellent review today.

The review of 6249 Pirates Ambush and other Pirate sets at

Just an example - there are other reviews too!

A long time ago lots of interesting reviews of old LEGO Pirate sets were published on a website known as Those were very imaginative, with a special made-up backstory for each set. That site has not been updated for years, but the old reviews are still there, and they're really worth taking a look at!

As a taste of what you can find there, we've posted their review of 6249 Pirates Ambush at forum. It was written by Joseph Gonzales back in 1997! We chose this set as it has not yet been reviewed on our website. Feel free to read it, and if you like it, proceed to other reviews at, and discuss them in our forum!
