New & Upcoming

LEGO® 40597 Scary Pirate Island [OFFICIAL]

The new pirate-themed LEGO Creator Gift With Purchase has been officially named in time for Halloween!

LEGO Creator set 40597 Scary Pirate Island contains 214 pieces and will be available from LEGO.com* between October 13-22 with purchases (estimated) over US$100, although purchase thresholds and regional dates have not yet been officially confirmed.

The new set harkens back to the likes of 6248 Volcano Island with a hint of 6296 Shipwreck Island, both of which sailed into stores during the sunset of the Golden Age. In other words, 1996.

6248 Volcano Island contains raft, rock and skull… with adjoining skeleton body and limbs.

In favourable stroke of ingenuity, 40597 Scary Pirate Island deviates from the well-trodden skull island concept, with its rocky outcrop resembling the gaping maw of a ravenous shark.  Yet there be little else to strike fear into the souls of hardened buccaneers;  the titular “scariness” may be attributed to the inclusion of a bat for the first time ever in a pirate-themed set.  But unlike its aforementioned predecessors, a complete skeleton be absent, so yer must make do with just the noggin!

At the very least, 40597 Scary Pirate Island will compliment yer second (or third) 10320 Eldorado Fortress purchase – what? Don’t tell us yer haven’t made yer first purchase yet?*
