I have to say that the I hate the baseplate.
I think because of the great quality MOC's that i'm now used to seeing, I prefer brick built islands. I understand that this is designed as a children's playset, needs to be affordable and in the old days, the baseplates were similar but I don't like the lack of studs. That's probably the main reason.
I think i'll just get the exclusive pirate minifig on his own.

I also like the 'brig' with the treasure chest full of 'booty' as well as the telescope. I'll be looking forward to buying this set at my local Toys "R" Us.

The blue naval boat is nice, especially with its blue facade. Thanks for doing this review.

didn´t really look that complicated and could use some more details (and bricks) it´s not that bad either... the modular aspect is,
on the other hand, pretty clever for sure, and with some more modular sets (a new Trading Post, perhaps?) we could create a neat
port pretty easily over the course of time... hopefully...

surely i like the island baseplate. this part can be expanded to make bigger island. awesome idea from TLC.

I don't see this line lasting very long. The pirates hype (with Pirates of the Carrabean etc...) is over and when there are cooler sets like Castle, Star Wars and Agents for the kids to be bought, I don't see them picking up this theme also.
You think the new Castle and Agent sets are cool? Have fun playing with those and leave the new Pirates sets alone :-p
The Star Wars sets are pretty sweet... I really want that Millennium Falcon..
Oh, I also wonder what it would look like with two baseplates stuck back to back

Anyway great review, with a great set. The minifigures look great, especially with the accessories!
I will be getting that set A.S.A.P.

Of course you can make island MOCs with it but all islands will be much too similar.
Good review, though, but I'm going to give a bad grade in the poll.
