What did the lucky sod win?

Levi is a lucky lad and scored all this booty:

Prizes for LEGO 90th Anniversary: Pirate Theme Celebrations

And superb work to those who entered but didn’t win anything!

The complete prize breakdown be:

  • 11021 LEGO Classic 90 Years of Play
  • 40567 LEGO Forest Hideout (Gift with Purchase)
  • 30510 LEGO 90 Years of Cars
  • 10305 LEGO Icons Lion Knights’ Castle
  • 10497 LEGO Icons Galaxy Explorer

Nary a pirate set among them… but The LEGO Group hasn’t released any new pirate sets lately… so they must be waiting for the fourth quarter of this year.


I’ve been marooned and have no idea what this about!

The LEGO Group is celebrating their 90th Anniversary this year so they’ve been holding a series of contests to celebrate.

Look at all those contests you could have entered… or maybe you did?

They’ve held contests for various classic themes including Castle, Space and Bionicle, but being LEGO Pirate fans, we’re only covering the Pirate Contest.

You can access all the 90th Anniversary contests on the official contests webpage.

And, if you haven’t been reading the Classic-Pirates.com blog you’d do well to follow our Instagram or join our Facebook Group (or both) to keep up with the latest news.


Levi writes:

“When the ship the Leviathan crashed into the side of a mountain that looked suspiciously like a skull, Captain CJ Mason and his pirate crew found themselves a new home where a secret treasure awaits to be found.”

And from above it’s an eclectic assortment of all kinds of piratey things – there’s even a kraken bursting out of the shipwreck!
