Hello mateys! Time for another update on the Design a NEW LEGO Pirate Sub-Theme project! Since the last update, there has been substantial progress. If you haven’t yet heard of the project, please visit the Project Overview thread. If you haven’t read the first update, you can find it here.
It has only been a couple days since the close of the sub-theme suggestions, but the management team, led by Classic-Pirates LEGO Ambassador Mister Phes, is already working hard on choosing the best and most popular sub-themes.
The poll options shall be…
The West Brick Trading Company
Quest for the Lost City
The Treasure Fleet
A more detailed synopsis of each sub-theme will be available soon so keep your eyes peeled for the poll in which you’ll have the opportunity to vote. The sub-theme with the most votes will be the one we develop!
Ahoy there mates! It has only been 12 days since the launch of the Design A NEW LEGO Pirates Sub-Theme project and there has already been a quite substantial amount of progress.
The Design A NEW LEGO Pirates Sub-Themes project was initiated by the Classic-Pirates LEGO Ambassador, Mister Phes. He, along with a few other chaps, will ensure that this project will reach its maximum potential. The goal of the project is to eventually submit a presentation to the LEGO Group via the LEGO Ambassador Project and reposition Pirates as one of LEGO’s “evergreen” themes alongside City, Castle and Space. If you want to learn more, please visit the Overview or Q&A threads.
At this phase, sub-theme suggestions are currently being submitted and will continue to be until the deadline which is April 26. If you would like to suggest a LEGO Pirate sub-theme, please take a look at the Sub-Theme Suggestions thread. If you have a question concerning sub-theme suggestions, please look at the Sub-Theme Suggestions – Q&A thread.
As a reminder, please remember that the deadline for sub-theme suggestions is April 26 -that date will come sooner than you think. Behind the scenes, Mister Phes and others have been working diligently to make this project fruitful. Thus, keep an eye out on the Pirate forums as new developments will be surfacing in the near future.
