Bluecoats? Next wave of Pirates?

Friday, June 19th, 2009

Blue Coat's Set to return?

Classic-Pirates.com members Emperor Claudius Rome and Dr Steve bring us news of the appearance of Bluecoats, Caribbean Clippers and Islanders in the upcoming LEGO Battles Game for Nintendo DS, leading to mass-speculation about the future of the Pirate line. The majority seem to wish for Bluecoats to replace the current Redcoats, whilst the appearance of other obsolete themes, such as Mars Mission and Ninja, cause scepticism in others. The matter is complicated further as the governor from the current Pirate line (pictured above, front), is named Broadside in the game, taking the name - and hat - of his forebear...

Join the discussion - and confusion - in the Pirate forum

Meanwhile, general speculation about future sets and their release dates continues:

When will the new sets be released? We already have news of the LEGO Pirate Advent Calender to be released in November, but that doesn't seem to satisfy everyone. Join the debate!

What do you want to see as new sets? Pure wishful thinking - but Eurobricks members have been right in the past! What's your dream set?

The return of the morion (Armada helmet) in recent Indiana Jones sets has sparked discussion over a return of the Armada Soldiers. The return of the cutlass piece in an Indiana Jones set preceded the return of the Pirate line - so why not? Share your opinion in the Pirate forum.

6299 Pirates Advent Calender – Pictures found!

Friday, April 24th, 2009

That mean old Mister Phes has gone and removed the image!

It was due to copyright uncertaintity,
so the image may or may not appear again...

Kris Kelvin has produced an amazing piece of news - the 2009 Advent Calender, set 6299, has a Pirate theme! Not suprisingly, as well as a boatload of pirate accessories, the 8 included figures are from various sets in the new Pirates line. This looks like a great calender, and it'll have you counting down the days like never before!

Classic Pirate Minifigure Re-released

Monday, February 16th, 2009
Go over to the Pirates forum to discuss the Minifigure collection!

Two space dudes? We wanted two Pirates!

Whilst the new LEGO® Pirate minifigures are arguably more aesthetically pleasing, there's a certain nostalgic element surrounding those from the original line. As part of their Vintage Minifigure Collections, The LEGO Group have unsurprisingly included a pirate figure.

However, many would have expected to see a more famous and charismatic pirate brought back, such as Captain Redbeard/Roger.

Why, then, do we get a minifig that only appeared in 3 sets (6289 Red Beard Runner, 6281 Pirates' Perilous Pitfall, 6249 Pirates Ambush)?

The later pirates from the original line are more similar in design to the new ones, so this could be the reason. Or could The LEGO Group be closely monitoring AFOL demand trends? Of all the classic pirate torsos, the one bearing the anchor tattoo is the second most expensive, sometimes selling for as much as $12!

The Vintage Minifigure Collection is expected to retail for $17.99 in the USA, so this rare torso could stimulate a high demand for the set.

What do you think? Should Captain Roger/Redbeard, often used as the "flagship" minifigure for the LEGO Pirate line at Legoland parks and on official merchandise, have been brought back instead of the "anchor pirate"?

Would you get the whole Collection just for one minifig?

Discuss it in the Pirate forum!
