Ending on eBay in the very near future is this MISB 6290 Red Beard Runner, perhaps a little pricey for some but if it doesn't sell maybe the seller will lower the price next time round.
Or perhaps you'd like an absolute bargain!
MISB 6285 Black Seas Barracuda

What an awesome deal! An original 6285 Black Seas Barracuda around $100 at the time of writing - yes that's right, only bid to around $100! This set can sell for over $500 in the hands of a competent auctioneer so don't miss out on this potential bargain.
MISB 10040 Black Seas Barracuda

And here we have a Legend re-release of the Black Seas Barracuda for just under $500 - definitely not as friendly to your finances as the previous auction but it is a realistic price to pay.
Happy bidding and may you be successful in procuring a new ship to build or preserve in MISB condition!

You might have seen it before, but here is a full presentation.
The ship's name is the Seagull, it's a 6 cannon sloop used for smuggling purposes by captain Steve.
The Seagull is build for speed and easy manoeuvring to avoid its enemies, but it also holds some mighty cannons to fight when necessary!
Now let us discuss The Seagull in the Classic Pirates forum!

Moose's first review is one we will all like to see! It is about the limited edition set: 6253 Shipwreck Hideout, a 310 piece, 6 minifig rich Pirate base set! 2 of the minifigs are Imperial Guards, the rest are Pirates, including Captain Brickbeard himself.
Limited Edition, people! Buy it NOW!
But I am not going to say much more about this set down here, if you want to know more you better go read forum user Moose's review. You can find more pictures there as well, and if you want to buy it, go look at the Toys R Us New Pirate Sets thread!
Now come on over to the Pirates forum to read Moose's review and discuss Shipwreck Hideout!
