How do you post pictures?

I added your picture into your post.  You need to get the URL of the actual image, which ends in an image file extension like JPG, not the URL where you can browse images. :pir-wink:

As a collector of pirates I am always searching for sets or merchandise I am not owning. It becomes more and more difficult. But yesterday I have gotten a new part for my collection:

The problem is, I will not open the box. I must find a used one. When I got one I will tell you how it is.

I have one! I like it a lot--the sail and trans-blue octopus are unique to the set, and the graphics on the box are fun. It'll make a great display piece when I have to take the big ships down.

My only problem is I can't seem to find the instructions, either my copy or online... I want to take it apart for cleaning and to check for missing parts, but I can't!

Dude... That is a fantastic haul!

Enjoy the IFS. I got mine used too, before prices started skyrocketing.

Nice full series. Might I ask, how much you paid for it in total, and for the IFS? Which is sadly the "only" one missing of the series for me... And the only ship, that is able to rival the old heavy BSB and SES.

In total I paid £450! As a break down the pirate serise was £100 and imperial flagship was £350 Which isnt much considering the value of the flagship :laugh:

So the regular series for 100 GBP? Sounds not bad all. It is cheaper than the set's prices when released. :P

Wow, 350 is still a lot of money... but on the other hand, they won't get cheaper...

We found it at a resonable price, so my parents have stashed it away for my 18th birthday as I now have every large pirate ship except the brick bounty! :pir_laugh2:

Somebody please explain to me the draw of keeping things NISB.  If I buy something, I want to build it.  What is the motivation and enjoyment of collecting sealed boxes?

I bought a sealed set once and it was about 2 days before I opened it. It was a fabuland set too, so pretty old. I kinda regret it now, but I also know that I can't have sealed stuff around. I did keep the box however.

I had some sealed modulars I sold recently and used the money to buy used ones (and keep the difference)

I have a few framed lego posters I like to look at, I guess its sort of like that? Just enjoy looking at them  ::shrug::;

Resale value doesn't hurt either. I was shocked with what my sealed stuff sold for, my goodness. So I'm guessing some people also view it as an investment.
