TheBrickser does it again!  Our incredible reviewing machine has produced a review for 6253 Shipwreck Hideout.  Apparently this one is "Limited Edition" so you better see what you could be missing if you don't buy one soon enough!

It doesnt look very hidden for a hideout does it?

PICTORIAL REVIEW: 6192 Pirate Construction Set by TheBrickster

November 19th, 2008 posted by Zorro

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!

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!

Head your merry way over to the LEGO Pirates forum to read the  6192 Pirate Construction Set Review by the Brickster!

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!
