*Price: 9.5/10. it was a little expensive ($39.99 for 310 pieces) but not too much. for a new pirate set ill pay it
*Figs: 10/10. the captain is great. the soldiers are amazing. oh yeah, theres a female pirate! i believe she has the torso from the medieval village set, and the hair from the agent girl. these figs are awesome.
*Pieces: 10/10. i love the new pieces and new colors(fish, bridge, chest, boat, shooting cannon!). the only downside is the crappy mast. the new skull and crossbones isnt too bad actually
*Build: 8/10. Nothing to special. It wasn't very difficult, even with taking pictures it took about only 30 minutes. Building it was pretty fun though.
*Playability: 10/10. 2 soldiers vs. 3 pirates creates a number of different scenarios for raids and attacks and the like
*Overall: 47.5/50 = 95. Id recommend this set to any pirate fan. at first it may seem a little juniorized, but ull realize its pretty cool. the concept is great, a ship crashed into rocks, and ites executed well. The set feels a little different from old pirates, not completely different, just like its a new age of pirates and thats what it is!
