Sabre Island was release in 1990 an it contained 92 pieces and its retail price was $15.50. It comes with 3 Imperial Blue coats, and a nice outpost for them.
The pictures + full review:
Anyway, you can see here a picture of the box, the model shown on the box differs from the actual model slightly.
...And the back of the box, which shows some nice alternative models from the pieces provided.
A close up of two or three of the alternative models.
And now for the minifigs. I prefer the Red coats over the Blue coats but these minifigs are nice, and for the number of pieces one gets a fair amount of them.
The set itself makes a nice small outpost, it comes complete with a palm tree, a cannon (with ammo) on a turntable, a small tower a nice large Imperial flag and a little red row boat!
Here is a shot from ground level showing the cannon and Blue coat (patrolling the out post!)
The rowing boat was a nice touch, and it comes with a small flag too.
"No Pirates will avoid the wrath of myself and my mighty Island!"
The top of the tower is rather plain and simple which in some ways is good, as it keeps the whole set detailed yet not crowded, but I feel a little something should of been added to the top though.
The back is lacking any type of walls, so one can play with the minifigs inside, yet their are also no stairs or any other ways for the Blue Coats to climb up their tower either!
The rag tag pirates attack Sabre Island!
But never fear, The Lord Of Pies is here!

Overall I think this is a very good, if somewhat simple set, and makes a great cheap Imperial set!
Comments, thoughts and Opinions are welcome!
