It looks like that list is part fiction/non fiction if you look at the comments below.

That would be 130 pounds not $130, so you would be looking at about $180USD for the set.

My bad, didn't notice the GBP. Seems more reasonable then but still the setnumber 8805 doesn't correspond.

I remembered one person stating he did see the set in a catalogue or something. Was this just a selfmade rumour to keep us excited or what?

Anyway I think that there aren't any sets coming out soon because:
1. There are too many licensed themes introduced at this particular moment: LotR, DC, Marvel and Star Wars

2. There's no movie coming out in the next 2 years.

Too bad though but that's just me being realistic.  :pir-sceptic:

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 appeared on Johnny's Filmography.

Hopefully LEGO decides to make another wave along with the new movie.  :pir-classic:

If there's really a fifth movie coming out I don't doubt LEGO will make sets for it.

If we don't get any new POTC sets this year, it would be a terrible shame, as I don't feel the line reached its full potential in the first wave. Furthermore, to not get any Pirates in 2012 is also a disappointment. If the Brickset Toyfair report is correct POTC exits in July.

Just have to wait until 2013 for more, if any Pirates it's starting to look like. :pir-sceptic:

Well they did pause Spongebob for a year or so. On that note, the POTC movie 5 sets look more possible.

As long as they still have the Disney license I think it's a very good chance, and hopefully like the Star Wars series, they'll throw in a few sets from movies past.

Hopefully so. For the "old movie sets", some new sets would be good like At World's End ones. No sets could count for that movie, not even the Black Pearl. The Pearl was the second movie because of Davy Jones coming for Jack.

I still hope for the return of Pintel & Ragetti in the 5th instalment, although Barbossa nearly died when the pearl sank.

Throw in a P & R, cutler beckett and Tia Dalma/Calypso and I will be happy. :pir-blush:

$180 US for the Dutchman and the Kraken still seems a little scary. I would much rather do with out the Kraken and see a $180 nicely done Dutchman  :pir-wub:  
The ship just has too many details they can include! My only hope is that maybe the Kraken is simply a brick built tentacle that does not take many pieces so we can still get a nice big ship out of it!  :pir-wub:

Good god. I missed the clearance and Kmarts are scarce here on the west coast - none near me. But at 30 bucks for a QAR, I would seriously buy all I could. I mean, the Angelica fig alone sells for around $15, and that's half of your cost right there. A couple of the other figs sell for like $7 each, so there's your other $15 you paid. So jealous!  :pir-sick: (Not to mention people like me paid $100 for that set not too long ago!)

Check your Kmarts out seriously. All of the Pirates sets were discounted. I also got the cabin set for $4.50, the Cannibal Escape for $11 and the Mill for $15. There has also been report of the Black Pearl for $25 and Alien Conquest and Harry Potter sets ridiculously priced as well. Good luck everybody

Thank you, moop, for the information. My local K-Mart seemed to be having the sale on Pirates of the Caribbean sets. Unfortunately, there was no Revenge to be found, nor London Escape or Whitecap Bay, which would've been the only three I could've used multiples of. The other sets were there, at roughly 25% of their initial MSRP.

Glad to alert people to it. The lack QAR is probably due to the sale being known among the communities that look for major discounts when shopping. They probably wiped them all out. Also, those other sets you mentioned were not at any of mine ether.

Did it say 25% off, or did you have to look at the scanner?

Each set had a yellow sticker on it, listing its retail price, followed by its marked down price. Additionally, they were all stacked on the shelf plastered with signs saying  "Take an additional 50% off!" which would've made them, roughly, 75% off  :thumbup:
