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!
Read the review and discuss 850839 Pirate Minifigure Pack in the forum.

It's been almost 20 years since LEGO gave us some non-licensed islander minifigs. The new figure from Collectible Minifigures Series 11 is a great addition to your island family. The new mask is painted with bright colors that go well with the new print on the torso and legs, as well as a new face print including a tribal tattoo.

Studdles knows how to make some nice sails!
Sometimes official LEGO sails can be too pricey for your planned Pirate Ship. Often the most popular alternative is making your own custom sails. Studdles has published a guide to not only making custom sails, but reproducing original LEGO ones!

"Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!"
Matthew Hurt brings us this wonderful bustling port. The ship has arrived and the crew is unloading the goods. The tight design of each building really brings a sense of life to the whole scene. There are many close-up photos to see all the intricate details of the ship, house, and stonework so be sure to click through to the forum.

An island paradise? Not likely.
Eurobricks member sweetsha built this amusing island scene to show off his CMF Tiki Warriors, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy it! Of particular note are the snake statue and the adorably carnivorous man-eating plants. These bumbling pirates are definitely in over their heads!
