The brick-built breeches design, courtesy of Michael Jasper, sort of "represents a new mold" akin to the then new pegleg that was released with the original pirates product line and therefore only counts as one single extra piece.

Title: Fog Rock Raiders
191 Pieces + 3 minifigs
Includes 2 parrots and 1 rat
It's common knowledge among the townspeople that the old Fog Rock lighthouse attendant has a certain predilection towards rum, and stockpiles kegs of the drink in the lighthouse for those long nights on watch.
For two scheming cutthroats, this presents an opportunity for free drinks! As the attendant makes his way to the island with a fresh boatload of rum, the pirates move in, to make off with the barrels themselves!
With the attendant already feeling the effects of the drink, there's a good chance he won't even notice....

The Spanish Conquistadors soon learn that it's not wise to steal gold from Islanders that have gods to appease. Here the Island Tribe makes an offering to the god Crocohuha.

Set Name: Aztec Temple Attack
Piece Count: 200!
Descrption: The Armada soldiers are attacking the mighty Aztec temple! Can the Aztecs defeat the invading Spanish and put them in their prison (and sacrifice them on the altar at the temple top ) and defend their gold? Or will the Spanish defeat the Aztecs, free their captured comrade and take the gold? Which side will you choose? Includes prison, breakable wall, sacrificial altar, golden statue and cannon. Contains Aztec high priest, Aztec warrior, 3 Spanish soldiers and 3 horses.
To the left is a prison (what LEGO set is complete without one? ), containing a Spanish prisoner:
On the right of the Temple is a wall which can be broken down by cannon fire. Once broken down, a stash of gold is revealed. But be careful of the spiders!:
It's a shame I can only show 3 pics, but I'll be sure to show more once the contest is over
Feedback much appreciated in the discussion thread

This is a raft that was inspired by the movie Master and Commander. It is from the scene when they build a raft to trick the phantom ship into chasing the raft rather than their own ship. In the move there was only one person on the raft, but I put three on mine and a shark to increase playability.
