I had given this set an average rating.
For the price of this set, there really were not a lot of bricks, which is a problem that most of the pirate sets have been plagued with.
I was really unhappy about the stickered brick patterns for the wall pieces. I didn't use any of the stickers. I just put the stickers in the jail for now, until I place them in my sticker container.
A minor problem I had with this sets was that the row boat did not come with a bench or two.
I liked that I am able to get all of the key pirate figures in one set. Before this set, I did not have the Imperial officer or Captain (Whatever )beard.
The playability this is really nice. I like that the set is stand alone or can be added to additional Soldier forts or MOCs. I also like that the set can easily be rearranged so to fit where I would like to put it.

I agree though, this set feels really sparse. Just not enough bricks.

I'll just get the last ones I want from BL. There are still plenty of piratey stuff I need to get for Constitution.

Just picked this up today. I can't really agree with the overall ratings from the review. This set I think has a couple of flaws. The biggest is really the complete lack of purpose for 2 of the 3 modules (didn't count the bridge one here). No tables, no chairs, no stove, no ladders to get up the tower (which also seems to have no purpose). Comparing it to "Imperial Outpost" (the only Imperial base I had as a kid) this one seems lacking -especially with the steep price tag.
Having said that, with a few additions I think this set is a great start for an MOC or even just for filling out. Making the tower a bit wider and giving it a purpose (and ladders), and expanding the shelter and adding a stove and table or similar would be good. I think this set as it is could serve as an excellent expansion for an existing Imperial base that contains features this one lacks.
Overall, not bad, but not great either. 7/10 for me.

Only major complaint with it is the lame one-piece palm three... but that can be replaced with an old one. While others have complained about LEGO using stickers instead of prints, it actually pleases me as I have chosen not to apply them and can thus use the bricks for other things where eg. red brick stickers may not fit so well.
