Pictures of new pirate accessories

Monday, October 6th, 2008

The newly released photos of the LEGO Castle Shop at Home exclusive, 10193 Medieval Market Village, have provided us with some high quality shots of some of the new molds to be released in the upcoming pirate theme including the hat plume/flame pieces, the decorative support/telescope pieces, and a new fish mold (!). Check out the pictures below provided by BrickCon 2009 attendee Mark "Hinckley" Larson.

In addition, further pictures from the Washington state BrickCon convention uploaded to flickr.com by Lego ambassador Andrew Becraft give us a peek at a mermaid figure for an upcoming set - one likely to be mass produced as the figurehead on the pirate ship of the 2009 product line.

Lastly, another attendee and ambassador, Nannan Zhang, has put up a shot of the "Governor's Daughter" minifigure to be released with the same pirate ship.

6243 Brickbeard’s Bounty

Sunday, January 1st, 2006

Finally, this is what we were waiting for: Captain Brickbeards Bounty, the new Pirate flagship that will lead the attacks against the also new Imperial Guards!

No less then 8 minifigs, and that includes 2 Imperials and one Governor's Daughter, come with this mighty set. Also included: 3 animals (a parrot, a shark and a monkey that carries a banana), a soldiers sloop with a mounted musket and a large treasure. The battleship itself seems to have three cannons and some secondary weapons like the mounted muskets on the stern!

Take what you can, give nothing back!

"Take what you can, give nothing back!"

We can also see that the Bounty is better suited for a more extensive age group then its predecessors, mainly due to the larger bricks and the fact it lacks some details as rope for the sails which could be dangerous for little children. Not that we are going to buy one for our kids yet... One for me, one MISB for in the vault and then, just maybe, if we have some spare money AND children, a cheap second hand one for them.

Lord Admiral Phes: "Now set sail for the Pirates forum, to discuss Brickbeard's Bounty, the proud of the new 2009 Pirates line!"

8396 Soldiers Arsenal – Pirates 2009

Sunday, January 1st, 2006

This miniset represents an Imperial Guard soldier that wears blue epaulettes, a backpack and a shako. He also owns a cutlass, a musket and a pistol to defend himself against the evil wicked pirates! The small arsenal "chest" comes with this set to keep everything organized. The military way!

Click here to discuss this new Pirates 2009 set : Soldiers Arsenal (8396) in the Classic Pirates forum!

An amazing armybuilder!

Oh, you would just love to have some of these, wouldn't you? (Bonaparte and Zorro certainly do)! Except for creating a giant battle between Pirates and Imperials, this impulse set seems to be a great way to build yourself a Napoleonic army as well!

Now go to the Pirates forum to discuss Soldiers Arsenal, a new Pirates 2009 impulse set!

6239 Cannon Battle – Pirates 2009

Sunday, January 1st, 2006

Cannon Battle (6239) is a small set, larger then the impulse packs but smaller then eg. Loot Island. Still it is one of the best value packs considering the amount of bricks you receive. You get two minifigs: one Imperial Guard and one Pirate with some handweapons. It is the cannon that is one of the most expensive items in this expansion pack though, and next to all these things you also receive a small background wall.

I want to be the soldier...

I want to be the soldier...

My conclusion is that you get quite a bit for a measly 5,99 dollars, therefore this is a great expansion pack, one you need if you buy the fortress that only comes with one cannon!

Now rush to the Pirates forum to discuss this new 2009 Pirates set: 6239 Cannon Battle!

8397 Pirate Survival – Pirates 2009

Sunday, January 1st, 2006

There are two impulse packs in the new 2009 Pirates line, the Soldiers Arsenal and this one: Pirate Survival !

If I can swim back to Tortuga, I will finally be able to buy my own ship!

"If I can swim back to Tortuga, I will finally be able to buy my own ship!"

A poor shipwrecked pirate stranded on a beach...the few possesions he has left are one box with some equipment that washed ashore earlier this day. It included one pistol with one bullet, and considering the situation, the pirate made a drastic desicion. But just when he was to pull the trigger he looked down and saw a couple of huge diamonds lying next to his smelly feet! He put away the pistol and immediatly build a fire and caught some fish, how a little thing like that can change a man's mood this much!

Now let me buy you a bottle of rum and let's talk about this new 8397 Pirate Survival set in the Classic Pirates forum!

6240 Kraken Attackin’ – Pirates 2009

Sunday, January 1st, 2006 Everything but the box, you ugly beast!

This small to medium-sized set, belonging to the new 2009 Pirates line, features a giant Kraken that attacks a small raft of some pirates that are trying to escape with their loot!

6240 Kraken Attackin' counts 78 pieces and has 2 pirate-minifigs, a parrot and of course the Kraken itself, also included is a small raft that has its own crow's nest and a paddle to steer it! The pirates are armed with a cutlass and musket, and have a box with some gems they probably found on an island, the only thing I actually miss in this beautiful set is a sail for the raft. The current retail selling price is set at 9 USD, IMO a fair price. The LEGO Group offers an age advisory of 5 to 12 years, but that has never stopped a real AFOL before!

So rush to the Pirates forum to discuss Kraken Attackin', one of the new Pirates 2009 sets!

6241 Loot Island – Pirates 2009

Sunday, January 1st, 2006

And another new Pirate set from the "2009" Pirates line! Loot Island, where the Pirates hide their treasure!
This beautiful set comes with 3 minifigs and a little boat for the Imperial patrol Guard (who looks like the old Imperial Soldiers Harbour Guard, since he had a cannon too). The Pirates guard their treasure with their life and have a catapult and trained crocodile to help them, the Island itself is one big part with dots on, so you can put trees and bricks onto it. Innovative, but one has to like it.

Retail Price is about 19,99 USD and the advised age category is 5 to 12, so I don't want to see anyone older then 12 buy this set! (That way I have more...)

Come on over to the Pirates forum to discuss 6241 Loot Island, one of the new 2009 Pirates sets!
