*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!

How can you eat knowing that the WHOLE WORLD is waiting for your pictures? :pir_bawling:

You must be some kind of heartless pirate to taunt us like this.

Just upload them on an image host as www.imageshack.us for example, and then post the right links here. Could you also post them a bit bigger, if it is possible? Thank you. :pir-classic:

edit: If you want to show them per brickshelf, you have to deeplink them because your folder is not yet public.

It means you have to copy the direct link from each picture (it has to end with ".jpg.").

The pics had better quality, but metalandi requested that they be bigger so i enlarged them a little so they kinda got grainy.  I could always resize them again for better quality but smaller pictures if thats the general consensus.  Once I get my own camera I plan on joining the Academy so I can make great reviews for everyone.

The trap featureĀ“s nice and funny, and these golden window partsĀ“re real eye catchers...  :pir-wub:

Nice Review, thanks! :thumbup: In fact, it's so good that it makes me think over my plans of only buying multiple impulse sets and consider just getting this set instead. It comes with all the minifigs you could ask for, and a whole buch of useful parts! And $40 seems quite alright for such a set. I always wanted one of those bridge pieces, and you just gotta love that Pirate chick! :pir-wub:
Just one question, though. Do I see right that there is only one of the new telescope pieces in this set?

New Pirates ON! :thumbup:

Exactly what color is the rope bridge? It looks tan in some pictures, and dark tan in others, to me.

I'd say dark tan. Compare the bridge to the other tan bricks attached to it in this picture:

Thanks for this review! It's a fantastic set, and I almost like every aspect of it. However, they should have included a 16x32 blue baseplate, it really needs one.

to answer some questions, yes there is only one telescope in the set. and i have no idea how to properly classify the new color of the bridge. it seems tan and gold and sorta greyish almost all at once. i think its supposed to be closer to tanish to show that its made of dried out faded vines

You know, this set could be useful in a town layout as well! As one of those big adventure playgrounds! :pir-grin:

That's what this set reminds me of. Sigh... Good ol' childhood...
