Look at this amazing Dutch ship!
Another Captain Green Hair creation
"Harr swashbucklers, I present you my latest ship.
It's an 18th century Dutch yacht, used to sail VIP's around and stay in contact with the larger ships offshore.
Some of these ships were privatly owned by rich merchants and they are basically the first pleasure yachts as we know today.
It is based loosely on the original Utrecht." - Captain green hair
Come on over to discuss the ''Utrecht'' now!

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!

One of our newer forum members, Patriot720, has made another beautiful MOC for us! Port Royal, a civilian port village, with an Imperial Trading Post cleverly built into its right side for protection against the evil Pirates attack!
Imperial Trading Post DeLuxe
It is clear Patriot720 was inspired by both the PTV contest and Pirates Month. We are certain we will see many more great works from this magnificient builder!
So come on over to the Pirates forum to discuss Patriot720's Port Royal!
