It's very well written, the layout and graphics are just amazing.

It is hard to believe this is fan created. Looks like professional work.

Great!
Ah, it brings back old memories - my first Lego set that had minifigs was the one with Kahuka and the islander girl in their boat.  ;-)
I wish I had more islander sets than just that one...

On the subject of Kahuka (and son?)'s red lining, I am FAIRLY sure that it is a sort of sash-belt.

Very good read, Phes. Wouldn't have known about Kahuka Jr. otherwise.

Actually Kahuka Junior was TalonCard's conception.

Even though I wrote most of the article he was the one who introduced the mini-figures.  Which is why it would be very good if he came back and did the same for Part V X-D

Unfortunately the response to Part IV hasn't been as good as the previous three, so we probably won't be seeing Part V in April.  There are definitely plans for it, but as there doesn't seem to be a huge demand for Part IV then Part V might not appear till June.

Thank you for your kind words Lord Bonaparte, but the layout could use a lot of improvement and some of the images are grainy and downright horrible.

it be a great shame to hear we will be waiting so long for part V, i would say the 'lack of response' is due to the faction and not your excellent work. I have been a fan of the series since i first saw it!

Talon card did a good job introducing the minifigures. *y*
Everyone who contributed to this M-F guide did a great job. *sweet*

I'm looking forward to more of them.
Go islanders! ;-) :-D

Hmm, I was looking through the Pirate Index and thought these guides might be interesting reading. Unfortunately, it turns out all the links lead to a dead end! Any chance of restoring them (for the other parts as well)?

Yes, these articles are fantastic literature and very entertaining. I have restored the links for all articles. Enjoy!

Thanks a lot. Now I have to see if the presentation is as good as everybody said  :pir-classic:

EDIT: Hmm I get an incomplete presentation.. is that related to a newer Adobe Reader?

On my PC I get the complete version (9 pages). Try right click on the link and save the file to your PC. Next open it from your PC. Does that work for you?

We want V part! Imperial armada figures are so rare, that will be too shame to don't see the end of the great saga of Classic Pirates figures! I hope isn't too late...

Yes, and sense of humor also great, that make whole thing much more interesting for reading. Actually I'm surprised cos' didn't expect that is so much expectations for V part of Guide: there are many people also can't wait for it, especially because it has been a long time after last part. Please, complete it...
