Lego12 has took dozens of pictures which display every facet of this wonderful new set. There are even a few surpirses which have went unnoticed by the general pictures.
Dive into the Pirate LEGO Forum to see this set analysed in scrunitizing detail!

"15 men on a dead man's chest, yo ho ho and a bottle o' rum! Drink and the devil had done for the rest, yo ho ho and a bottle o' rum!"
The true pirate's treasure, this MOC is a brilliant one indeed. A life sized dose of grog with great details like a jolly roger on the front, the true pirate in you won't be able to resist this one!

Sometimes in an AFOL community, we forget who the LEGO Group's main target is. So it's nice to be reminded with such a nice MOC from a younger LEGO enthusiast.
Ward, the nephew of Capt. Kirk's girlfriend, has created this raft entitled "Shipwrecked Pirates". At the age of 8, this pirate fan has a bright future ahead of him. After all, he is in good company!
Marvel at the talents of this junior fan of LEGO and
his Shipwrecked Pirates in the Classic-Pirates.com forum.

Eurobricks member Sir Dano found something on Flickr... pictures of the new Pirate sets, lying around in a store awaiting their first customers. We couldn't even dream of them being spotted this fast! PS: SHOOTING CANNONS in North America this time!
- Found in the Imagination Center at Disney World.

On a remote island in one of the seven seas, a marooned sailor sets up a small shack with only his pet dog for comfort. In this recent MOC SlyOwl has used everyday parts in new and unexpected ways.
Perhaps this island isn't so bad after all
SlyOwl has created this small island using many wonderful and inquisitive techniques. Many a part has been used in a new unexpected way such as to make brick built animals, plants or even part of the landscape. Check out all the pictures in the forums!

The Pillage The Village contest has become such a tremendous success that Lord Admiral Phes has decided to give it its own Subforum!
Everything that has to do with the PTV contest can be found here from now on!
The previous titles and descriptions of the entry threads were a complete menagerie and it was looking very disorderly. Therefore Mister Phes painstakingly retitled and described all the entry threads on the first page using the same convention. He will do so for the entry threads on the other pages as well as they get bumped.
Mister Phes also made clear the rules about how the new PTV contest entry threads should be titled:
- The thread title should be the title of the MOC, you may include "WIP" or "FINAL" but nothing else.
- The thread description (the one beneath the title) should contain "Pillage the Village Contest - " then either "Large" , "Medium" or "Small" depending on the division.
