"Will there ever be a new ship better than the BSB or SES?"
After the hugely successful release of the legendary Black Seas Barracuda and Skull Eye Schooner in the original pirates line, many LEGO enthusiasts were beginning to question whether there would ever be a better pirate ship than the two. Then, without warning, the 4+ ships arrived on the shelves. Things were looking pretty bleak - until now. 2009 marks the start of a new era in the LEGO Pirate line, and leaked images have showed us some pretty sweet stuff. But are the new sets better than the original ones? Will there ever be pirate ships better than the originals? You decide!
