:pir-cry_happy: This is a really good set with many accesories to help build up your pirate collection. It cost 19.99 US. Sorry about the pics, the camera I use isn't the greatest.

I agree. Nice set, but not really a review.

No this is the only set I have. What else would you like me to add to make it more of a review?

Thanks for the pictures. Could you post a picture of that base by itself, top and bottom?

I think people want more opinions, and perhaps a rating.

Lego12 is working on a full review as well, so don't worry about changing this if you don't want to.

Nice looking set! I love the fig with the ripped shorts, and it seems he might have a new head. Quite a few nice leaf pieces as well.

I would've liked a little more information, but I guess what you have is good. Nice review!

Is it just me, or it really seems like new lego pirates remind of megabloks sometimes?
First the colors are really dark or bright, and that baseplate is just different in my point of view. The minifigs look detailed so thats a good thing. Everything else just doesnt d it for me :(

really? 20 bucks for that? I think the pricing on new castle was way more feasible... that set sucks for that price... maybe 14 bucks... but not 20.

Thank you for that interesting little review, Paul cantu!  :thumbup:
I really like that set... it looks quiet playable to me, the blue boat´s
nice, the dark green on the pirate looks great and that Robinson Crusoe
MF´s simply superb! The baseplate looks also better that I initially thought
and could even become handy for some neat wasteland MOCing... Tatooine, here we go...  :pir_laugh2:

And that little 'prison' where the sea´s the only kind of back wall... pretty surrealistic, isn´t it..?    :shark:

thanks for this little review^^

Like asuka, I like that little set, and the baseplate looks better than it looks at first sight, the little comics is cool too and WHOOO you got a lot of extra pieces!

Excellent, thanks for posting pictures of the set so quickly. I'm undecided about the island I think I'll need to have it in my hands before I make a decission but it looks quite good.

Thanks for the photos and review.

Yeah, this set looks nice. I for one like the 3D baseplate (sure I wouldn't want one in every set), and it is a positive development that it can be attached to studs. Certainly will be useful on top of tan baseplates (I've oodles of those from Western) for sandy/dusty scenes (Beach/Western/Egypt/Desert). I wouldn't want too many, so hopefully there'll only be the occasional set making use of these (and hopefully other colours, e.g. dark bley).

I like the torn trousers on the castaway.

I love to see pictures of the new Pirate sets, but some of the photos are blurry. I think you did a good job though. :kahuka:

Judging from the eyes, it looks like a scared head or an angry head...

It's a sad face.

Thanks for the pictures. I like this set and even the baseplate, it can be attached to a blue baseplate so it looks like sand in an ocean. I really like the figures and the accesoires. But I think 20 euro for this is a bit overpriced, and that's a shame...
