I think that it is a little early for POTC to just end. From everything that I have seen and heard on this forum and around my local toy stores is that POTC is selling as well as the Indiana Jones theme which, is pretty good.
I think we may yet see some more POTC sets before we see classic pirates back.
I was under the impression that Indy didnt sell well at all.
Apparently POTC exceeded it's target but that doesn't mean it was a huge success, the question for TLG is, can they now produce more sets that will have as much or more appeal as the first.
They could release The Dutchman, but that would no doubt be an expensive set with lots of new minifig moulds. They've already produced Davey Jones so I would think they werent expecting on releasing the Dutchman.
you don't see enough of Tortuga to warrant it's own set and they've sort of already released Port Royal.
I think this theme is dead now. I can't see what else they can do with it.
