The Renegade Runner, also called the RR was released in 1993 together with the bigger pirate ship the Skull’s Eye Schooner. The ship has a crew of four and consists of 171 pieces. It has no center sections. The ship is the second ship of the Pirates line using the 12 studs wide hull pieces.
Some pictures of the whole ship.
I was quite disappointed there was no cabin, but it was probably impossible for LEGO to make a simple cabin design on a little ship like this.
I really like this one. Simple and yet so effective.
Here’s a close up of the single cannon.
In case you’ve never seen the thin Prefab hull sections, I give you a picture of the bottom!
Here is the crew of the ship. It’s good they didn’t choose the captain Roger fig this time.
And the accessories. Including the cool compass!
And here you can find a parts inventory from Peeron.
I give this ship a 3 out of 5. I think LEGO could have put more effort in building this ship.Some things I don’t like are the blue bits in the colour scheme, the lack of an anchor, the lack of a steering wheel and I think the stern section could also use some work. Generally, not the best ship LEGO made, but also certainly not the worst one.
I’m happy to own this little boat, and if you are really a serious Pirate LEGO collector, you should really try to get one of this!
