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!

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!
One of our newest members, General Armendariz, has discovered this abnormality: two Lego Imperial Guards, exactly the same, but with different button colors.
This strange difference has already been noticed by multiple members, some of whom have even posted pictures of them. So if you want to discuss this or just want to know more about this phenomenon, then you should head on over to the LEGO Pirate forum!
No problem! Our Pirate Sets Found In Stores! thread has been there from the beginning, reporting every sighting (well as many as we can find) of the news sets. So don't miss out on the exciting discussion!
We have pictures of the 2009 Imperial Guard Mini-figures - front and back!
LEGO Pirate Forum user Lego12 has been one of the lucky first to procure the 2009 Pirate LEGO sets. There are set reviews brewing but while they're being finalised here's a little something for you... The 2009 Imperial Guard mini-figures!

As you can see the LEGO Group has gone steps further for these new Imperial Guards and incorporated a design into the shakos as well as into the back of the torsos. What a great touch!
