With no Imperial ship in the first wave and the importance of Pirates in the grand scheme of LEGO corporate affairs, I think we can pretty much count on one. That said, I wouldn't wait around buying other things and hoping they'll be around for a long time, I'd pick up some while you know you can.

Power Miners? Sure, they're ok for a rehashed Rock Raiders, but I wouldn't pass up Pirates for them.

Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!

I would imagine so, with the old line being so popular. I spoke to the LEGO® Australia Marketing Assistant, and she said although it's not certain, there will probably be quite a line on the horizon.
I understand if you are also into other themes, but my main focus is pirates, so I for one, am just saving to buy all the pirates when they come out in Australia.

I think that LEGO will release new sets every year or so, for a period of 5 years maybe. Just like in the 1990's

People are more than ready for Pirates again (some of us haven't even been un-ready :pir-classic: )

Rock Raiders are kind of lame.... YAY!!! there's these monsters that eat rocks!

Pirates and Soldiers are way more bad megablocks. Buy more pirates sets so they stick around for a few years. Other than a few non-pirates sets for parts, all I'm buying this year are Pirates sets.
All time favorite: the original Imperial Flagship
Modern favorite: Race for the Stolen Treasure (X5 and counting)

Did you get any dates?

And not the romantic kind :pir-tongue:

Why are all the marketing assistants female... Lego has to employ me now... I know their secret, equal oppertunity and such.

If you did PM them to me I understand that we may not be able to release these things publicly.

I think TLC will do exactly the same as in the previous pirate's line, releasing more ships upcoming year. At least, I hope they do. :pir_laugh2:

I want a midsized ship really badly, so hopefully we'll get a redcoat ship this year. And then, like Castle introducing orcs in '08, we can have bluecoats or Islanders in '10.

Yes, in Belgium it already appears in some online stores, although it can't be ordered yet.

It has been confirmed by many people that know as well.

So let us hope they'll also release it in the USA and Australia (and the rest of the world of course).

I don't have any information to confirm this, but I have a strong feeling the theme will continue.  Midsized ship, maybe blue coats, and even islanders (as already stated here and other places) would be incredibly awesome!

I don't feel the islanders are coming back... Just too in-popular. Now those blue-coats, well, they were the fastest sellers!

TOTAL FEEDBACK AS OF NOW: 1. Positive.

If the new Pirates theme takes off then Lego might release some new ones at the end of the year maybe.
I guess it all depends on Legos plans and how long it takes to get sets into production.
