Hello. I don't have any pirates, because I was too young to collect them. So, can my minifigs be Adventurers? Or what type can they be other than Pirates? I'm going to enter the contest because I need pirates :pir-cry_happy: . Help me Mister Phes!

You might be interested to know that they aren't MISB, they are in brilliant condition regardless. Sorry for the confusion :pir-cry_happy:

Whoa there, I do be thinkin' you're hitting the rum a little early in the day!

Pleased to be disregarding the ramblings of a drunken Lord Admiral wannabe, the specific packaging/instruction situation of these sets has not been stated at this point.

MSIB!? Oh man, I always said I would never open a MISB set if I ever got one, but now that there is a slight possibility of this hapening, I don't know what I will do.

What will you do? :pir_laugh2: The hard desision - open or not open. Hehehe.

I'm going to repeat, these are good quality sets, but not MISB. It would take an amount of money we couldn't dream of to buy this many MISB sets, IF we could even find them.

:pir-oh: Wow.  Is this just to prove that C-P is the best pirate fansite?  Do you feel threatened by forbiddencove's castaway contest? :pir-wink:  Anyway, at least we now know the "big event" the mods have been referring to.  I'm probably going to enter!

Shows what you know about running a contest like this. :pir-hmpf:  

Do you know how long it takes to procure prizes of this sort? Longer than the other site has even existed.  :pir_laugh2:

If you're going to do something right, something big, something memorable, you put time and effort into it.

That is the kind of contest we run. It isn't designed to compete with a new site, it's meant to give the fans what they want, the opportunity to win Classic Pirate LEGO. :pir-classic:

We look forward to your entry! :jollyroger:

What precisely, is the "Creative Critic" award for? critiquing someone's MOC? Reveiwing a set in a different way? Come on!
Just returned from a 3 or so year dark age, so just getting back into the swing of things. :)
