For the ones how want a Lego Pirate-theme clock (and for the newbies who didn't know it excist).

Do you find it difficult to wake up in the morning? So what would you say if you could connect this dreaded  activity with your hobby? Some time ago, a few sets came ou branded by Lego ( „Clic Time” to be specific ) consisting of one large element being an alarm clock mechanism and a few additional bricks. Those sets were generally connected to one of Lego main themes, so there were alarm clocks from Star Wars, Racers, Bionicle, Technic, Belville, Soccer and many others.

Being an Adventurers enthusiast myself, I have been searching for a long time (a few years!) for an alarm clock with this theme. A second-hand market was an only possible solution for me as the set was quite old - it came out in 2003. I had been very persistent in my search yet there was no way I could get that set. One time I had bought it on e-bay but the transaction was never finalised as the seller wasn’t willing to send it to Poland. But finally my patience has been rewarded! So what did I get?

Whole set is put in an elegant wrapping with cut-outs. Plastic packaging provide excellent protection for elements inside the box.

The main part - alarm clock mechanism - is put in a rectangle box which can be used as a regular Lego brick itself. At the front of it there’s a clock face, full of colours and pictures connected of course to the theme of the set.
Adventurers’ clock’s hands and numbers are perfectly readable, there’s no way one could commit mistake reading current time. And when you’re in the dark a little built-in light activated with a small button, comes in handy (but how does one find a button in the dark?). At the back there are two knobs - just like regular clocks - one is used to set the current time, while the other sets the time of the alarm. Worth mentioning is a fact that knobs are shaped like gears from Lego Technic.

After putting all the parts together one gets a small yet nice looking construction. Perfect for putting next to one’s bed!

Luckily not all Lego Alarm Clocks are as hard to obtain as the one described above.
You can easily get most of them at e-bay and BrickLink Or some on ClickTime. Unfortunately not the Pirate one... 8(

Great find. It looks like that clock comes with some really nice accessories.  I have the Scary clock.  It was one of the few LEGO purchases made during my dark ages.  It doesn't have too many accessories, but I picked it because it was among the plainest of the clocks offered at that time. After getting back into LEGO, I'm really glad I picked this one, because it's just plain enough to be incorporated into a MOC. If only I could find it....

Great find! However, I must inform you that Adventurers/JT information belongs in the History and Adventure subforum.

I think TLC should make a pirate clock. That would be great waking up to everyday if you know what I mean.  :pir-wink:

I wish they had made a classic pirate one, rather than that junior's pirates :/

offtopic: Everytime I see this topic, I think it is related to some campaign to revive the forum, gather more peeps, and start building big, like in the good old times xD
