SET REVIEW: 1733 & 1713 Shipwrecked Pirate
Posted 16 November 2007 - 06:23 AM
(Of course, since I also refused to modify any of my sets at that age, this particular island had pirate flags sticking up everywhere like so many McDonald's signs. But still...)
Of course, the best reason for not liking this set is that there was already a much superior version out there. But then, I always was a snob when comparing older Pirates to newer Pirates--I didn't realize that there might not be any Pirates at all one day...not until it was too late... :(

treasure surprise(not exactly a big surprise is it? I mean where the hell else is he going to hide that many coins on a 4x4 plate? with a square box on it)
barnacle bay(this is just a burp with some bricks slapped on. Sure it includes some figs but it certainly doesnt have a better design than the shipwrecked pirate.)
skeleton crew(AaaaaaaaaaaaH! Holy crap a skeleton!)
as well as I miss the pirates, I do not miss these kind of sets...
I miss this: (the cafe corner of buried treasures :-D )
and for the reviewed "raft"... it is not.... :-/ ( gave it a three )
THIS is a raft:

Maybe, this was one of the first few LEGO Pirates sets, which my friend gave me, and I always treasure it very much. Many have noted that the raft is not really up to standard as the color scheme is wrong and should be likely in brown. Well, I can't fault them for using yellow. At that time, it seemed yellow was a common color in Pirates themes and brown parts was not commonly available as well.
More plus points for this set. Who do not want an extra Pirate crew on board your vessel? The printed flag is an excellent part piece to be included into your assortment. Apart from the raft's color scheme which is not suitable, other than that, I think it's a very neat little set that deserved to be part of the Pirates theme especially for those whom are not able to afford the bigger ships.
Just to share with you, how I make use of this set in my upcoming review.
Ideally, most of you wish that the raft can be something like this below.
