TheBrickster seems to be currently spending a lot of his free time in the Name Of The Holy Brick, just hours after his previous reviews he made another pictorial review about this fantastic Pirate Construction Set (6192). Thank you TheBrickster!
A bit more info: For the first time LEGO releases a small scala of Construction Sets, something closely linked to the Creator sets, but still a bit different. For now, there is one Pirates, one City and one Castle Construction set, although I believe they might develop more if this is a succes (and going by this great review, I think they will sell very well!).
This is a good initiative from LEGO!
They cost 10 USD and the set is recommended for ages 4 to 7, but because of the good MOC parts, the unique minifig and the low price, this Pirate Construction set will appeal to a lot of AFOLs as well!
It's here! After all that waiting, it's here! svelte_corps presents us with this fantastic review of this new pirate set.

Forum users Lego12 and Paul Cantu have both reviewed the new Pirate set, 6241 Loot Island. The result is two very different reviews for you to peruse.

As you can see in the above picture the beard piece makes an official apperance in a Pirate set for first time ever and it's very suited to the Robin Crusoesque mini-figure which it adorns.
Once again Lego12 has packed his review with glorious pictures, so get yourself to the Pirate LEGO Forum to feast your eyes upon them!

6241 Loot Island Set Review by Paul Cantu
Forum user Paul Cantu has also created a review of 6241 Loot Island, while not as comprehensive as Lego12's review it offers a different perspective of the set.
So once again, get your to the Pirate LEGO Forum to read Paul Cantu's 6241 Loot Island review.
How much do the new Pirate Sets costs?
Forum user Card has spotted the 2009 pirate sets at a Toys R Us in the USA and he's kindly shared his findings. We're not yet certain if these are the recommended retail prices, but you can still check them out in the New Pirate sets at Toys R Us thread.
Once again we've discovered another large Imperial Guard army for sale oneBay. These guys look familiar, so maybe they're up for sale again or maybe the last auction winner was a non-paying bidder. If you're not prepared to pay then don't bid!
A grand army awaits your command!
Ensure good relations with your commanding officer!
