6243 Brickbeard’s BountyJanuary 1, 2006 posted by Zorro
Finally, this is what we were waiting for: Captain Brickbeards Bounty, the new Pirate flagship that will lead the attacks against the also new Imperial Guards!
No less then 8 minifigs, and that includes 2 Imperials and one Governor's Daughter, come with this mighty set. Also included: 3 animals (a parrot, a shark and a monkey that carries a banana), a soldiers sloop with a mounted musket and a large treasure. The battleship itself seems to have three cannons and some secondary weapons like the mounted muskets on the stern!
We can also see that the Bounty is better suited for a more extensive age group then its predecessors, mainly due to the larger bricks and the fact it lacks some details as rope for the sails which could be dangerous for little children. Not that we are going to buy one for our kids yet... One for me, one MISB for in the vault and then, just maybe, if we have some spare money AND children, a cheap second hand one for them.
Lord Admiral Phes: "Now set sail for the Pirates forum, to discuss Brickbeard's Bounty, the proud of the new 2009 Pirates line!"
