Not as old as the first pirate sets, but it was so cute and I couldn't resist(impulse!)

Well, I got some old Lego off of my cousin ages ago and it had 3 pirates, an islander and 1 bluecoat.

But my first complete set is the Black Seas Barracuda! *wub*

I remember getting my very first pirateset in 1990, one year after the Pirates hit the stores.

It was this one:

For many, many years this was the only cannon I had (two clips broke of, but the barrel was still capable of lying on the undercarriage just fine).
Only recently my cannon population has growed, I am reaching 40 (cannons) pretty soon.

Sweet memories.... *wub*

I think it might be Smugglers Shanty, which I bought around 6 months ago. I have now amassed a fair collection of different sets, even though I am also interested in space themes now.

This thread is quite similar to the How did you become a Pirate LEGO Fanatic? thread only more straight to the point.  No matter, I'll just cross reference them!

Anyway, here's mine:

I just find it perfect to be initiated on the world of Lego Pirates. You really had it all: a soldier, an officer, two pirates with sabres and a pistol, Red Bear captain, a parrot and the treasure!  *wub*

Mine were the very first two pirate sets released:

The Harbor Sentry (with a shooting cannon no less)

and

Burried Treasure

They were both available as a special pre-order for members of the Lego club.

The Imperial Trading Post, my first and only Pirate set. I bought it about two years ago off a guy on Bricklink; it was one of the best purchases I have ever made. :-)

Were you fortunate enough to get one as a kid, or is this a more recent acquisition?

Read my article on the classic LEGO Town House here
My Bricklink store: Blackbeard's Bricks
Including a 100% complete 6277 Imperial Trading Post - PLUS lots and lots of Pirate spare parts: Sails, hulls, masts, minifigs etc. etc.

Not sure really...

But I remember that as I didn't have any sailing ship at that time I used hull from 4030 Cargo Carrier as a pirate ship equiping it with 6805 Astro Dasher's wings as cannons.  :pir_laugh2:
Even though I enjoyed it much...

Well, later I got 6274 Caribbean Clipper and 6285 Black Seas Barracuda, so then I really started playing  :pir-blush:

I got my first taste of LEGO pirates when I bought ten Pirate minifigures from eBay when I was little. My first actual set was Forbidden Island, which I got last year (from eBay). Since then, I've gotten Skull Island, Rock Island Refuge, Eldorado Fortress, and Shipwreck Island. My first set of the new Pirate II line was Loot Island.

I go by many names, and they're mostly pronounced the same.

Pretty certain it was

6270 Forbidden Island, which if I'm not mistaken I got for my birthday in 1989, but it may have been in 1990. I do know that I got the 6285 Black Seas Barracuda for Christmas in 1990 though, and I had had 6270 for a long time before that. (at least it seemed like a long time, but everything does when you're 7 years old :wink:)

My first set was the Armada Flagship:


I got this set at the same moment:


After that my little brother got the Redbeard Runner.
I also bought the Redbeard Runner a few years later. And a few months after that I got another Armada Flagship.
From that moment on I bought lots of bluecoats and extra bricks. :pir_laugh2:

6270 Forbidden Island [...]

Did You get the one from american version - with different ( nonshooting ) guns? I got american version from my californian uncle on one christmas, but I already had this set so we exchanged it in a shop for an Barracuda  :pir-laugh:
Best thing is that I learned that those american guns were nonshooting just one week ago!  :pir-cry_sad:
