  1. I tried both, but they don't work for me.:(
  2. I also think, that a narrower shiphull would be a nice thing. There would be place for a second ship in a lineup without having two ships too similiar in size without having an 'Imperial Flagship' type one (Although it was only 120 or 140€ back then). The alternative would be planning two waves of pirates (What a dream) with one big fortress and one ship each.
  3. Many of the jungle sets and this especially seem to be cobbled together without much thoughts. The main part of the set is supposed to be the helicopter, right? Which is supposed to be a heavy duty transport. Yet it basically can't transport anything meaningfull, since it needs that special platform to lift something. There are three palletes, one of them for a ligh-generator, one for a coffeemaker/microscope and one with a box and barrels. The small boat can transport two of them. But the super large helicopter only one because the other spot is wasted for those two motorcycles. Then there is that jeep. It looks quite generic and blocky but at least the heli can transport it. The boat not so much since the jeep is to broad.The tower is okay, although I doubt it's crane is any good at lifting those palletes. The Ruins look nice, besides the horrible bridge but the are indeed to small for that big set. They either should be bigger or really nothing more than a tiny addition.
  4. Yeahh, The Endor AT-ST definitley had a better scale that the new one. Besides that it had that nice walking mechanism and looked better.
  5. The last two lines of pirates really suffered from missing conflict . But the nice thing about the Pirate-trope is, that it contains an intrinsic conflict: Order versus Freedom Unlike in Castle or Space it does not need a good and bad faction. Both factions can be good and bad. I think Lego should keep that in mind when making a pirate line in the future. Both soldiers and pirates should have interesting characters and should be about equal in forces.
  6. I assume it is because there weren't any Phase II-Helmets with a visor, which is an important part of Cody's appearance.
  7. They had it once, but I think with Disney taking over Lucas Arts they lost the exclusive rights. But why would TLC sell minifigs seperatly when they aswell could make overprized 30€ sets that you only buy for the figures?
  8. For todays standard both Eldorado Fort and Imperial Trading post are tiny sets and won't sell as something legendary. Besides that those Baseplate aren't used anymore.
  9. Armada would be good, just like Islander to get away from that boring image the last two waves had. I somehow forgott that the foil was in multiple sets, while I actually have the spider-droid with it as antenna standing next to me while writing xD. But the conquistator shows how bad it would fit into the pirate-theme. It looks so damn harmless. But I don't really know how you could give it more impact within the limits lego-pieces have to have today.
  10. Which parts do you mean? And was the rapier used besides for the collectable minifif musketeer?
  11. I hope the next pirates will have tricorns for the soldiers and not those stupid tschakos, but I don't know how you argue that in normal pirates they will have those because in they are in a POTC set. They also had tricorns in the first wave of POTC and we saw soldiers witch tschakos after that. Concerning guns I really wish that TLC would finally give them a new design. I mean we got new better looking swords,spears and bows but are still stuck with a 30 year old design for the guns. I don't say that the old ones should be completly abandoned but still be the main weapon for the pirates, but the soldiers could really use something that would look more like a musket and not a thunderbluss. (If we are at it some rapier like wepaon would be nice to xD)
  12. Well, Flint has to end as a drunk in some English inn.
  13. I think we haven't seen an Anakin Skywalker at all in the last 3 years with the last one being the 2003 Clone Wars minifig with blonde hair.
  14. Nice build. You really hit many of the characters better than TLC does often. Your version of Nassau also has more atmosphere than the one in the series.
  15. I like it's straight design. It really catches the spirit of the old sets.
