*y*

What does the inside of the box say? - My eyesight isn't good enough to read that |-/

Do you have the set and the instructions? - Perhaps you could review the whole thing? *sweet*

My eyesight isn't that good either. It would be great if we could get a close-up picture of that parchment text.

It would be super awesome if Mr Tully could write it down for us as well as taking a picture. But maybe that's asking a bit much.

It says... here is Forbidden Island, haven for the criminal, villanous, poxy vile scum you don't want living next door to you. :-P

While the good Colonel gave us a creative interpretation of the text, we'll also record the actual text here, just to have it on file ;-)

THE ADVENTURES

OF THE

LEGOLAND PIRATES

OF THE SEA

FORBIDDEN ISLAND

Sometime during the 18th century, a

peaceful colony of settlers enjoying the island

treasures they discovered, suddenly had their

serenity interrupted. The invaders were those

who called themselves the LEGOLAND© Pirates

of the Sea! For years, the Pirates had been

searching for the same buried treasures that the

settlers were now claiming as their own. This, of

course, disturbed the Pirates as they knew the

doubloons (Spanish gold coins) the settlers found

had belonged to their ancestors.

Forbidden Island was named by the

settlers because to them it was forbidden. It was

the island where only Pirates could live.

It was there that Captain Red Beard and the

other buccanneers made plans to "steal" the gold

from the settlers. Little did the Pirates know,

however, that the settlers had Governor Broadside

guarding the gold and that they would have to

deal with him first if they wanted it.

The Governor lived for the day he would

have to defend the Eldorado Fortress and the

gold. What he did not know was that the day of

confrontation would be coming soon...

Use your imagination to continue

The Adventures of the LEGOLAND© Pirates

of the Sea!

Most the little backstories on the boxes weren't particularly inspiring but that one is... It's fairly exciting and gives some background on the relations between the Pirates and the Soldiers.

Excellent work ImperialShadows! You don't happen to have more of these stories on file? It would be good to collect as many as possible for Classic-Pirates.com.

I manually typed it from that picture. I'll try to dig up a few more though, especially Eldorado Fortress as it was directly mentioned. I assume it has an equally interesting story.

Updated: I've found a very bad (despite being huge) picture of the text and typed it out to the best of my ability to read it. I'll start a new thread so this doesn't go off course and devote it to saving the box stories where we can find them.

Update 2: New thread posted. Please visit and contribute if you can. Thanks!

I like how the settlers are made out to be villians here. Heck, they even use quotes to denote sarcasm when describing the Pirates theiving ways. LEGO really went a long way to make sure that kids new the Pirates were the heroes of this theme. Between the pirates and the forestmen, it would seem that LEGO has a fondess for scoundrals. "

Steal" away!
