Classic all the way--I'm so sick of Jack Sparrow & Co. I could use the minifigs to replace pop-cans on the rail for target practice...

I voted for "both at the same time"
But i think a possible PotC Line would be better than no Pirate related line at all and i can imagine some really cool sets.
My only concern is that, like Star Wars, these sets will be overpriced and the sets itself be a bit too much fantasy like.
But there will surely new molds of weapons like a rapier and maybe one or two new hats.
Btw. will there be no new Pirates sets next year?

As a side note I think they terminated the license with Mega *$%£@! .

As for the figures, you either like yellas all the way, or you don't mind fleshies. I must say that I'm in the latter camp, and so wouldn't mind the figures we would get. My only fear is that characters (like Jack) that have big enough hair to need a hairpiece, but don't look like themselves without hats, willl get either one or the other, or a made-in-china painted hair/hat combo. I'm not really sure what the solution to this would be, though....
And the sets would be awesome. We'd get a mid-sized ship (the interceptor), which would mean that I'd finally get to have a proper hull (buying the any of the myriad 100$ ships that we get would kill my budget for the rest of the LEGO spectrum), as well as more than two land-based sets, like we got with the recent wave. And, I see five (count 'em, five) SW-style battle packs that could be made (Jack's pirates, Davy's fishmen, Beckett's navy, Barbossa's skellies, and Sao's Singapore dudes), and which would allow for much easier collection of minifigs than lego's nonlicensed paradigm of "you get one figure for every five dollars. Or maybe you get less. It depends".
But, of course, classic pirates has the nostalgia factor, and I do like it when LEGO comes up with it's own ideas. But really, either would be fine with me. In fact, after justifying POTC up there, I even feel like rooting for it a little - after all, it'll go away after the second trilogy's wrapped up, and we'll get classic pirates back!

I don't count the current line as 'Classic Pirates'. The in my opinion real Classic Pirates sets (1989-1996) was way better than the current one. But back to the question. I prefer a non-licensed Pirates theme. It's less expensive and there is not a movie the sets have to be based at. The new 10210 Imperial Flagship is an excellent example of a beautiful set TLG designed by its own. Although POTC has some great possibilities. This is just an example.
I prefer a non-licensed Pirates theme, but better a POTC license theme than none at all.

So I say Classic Pirates or none at all.

I too would like to see a more realistic pirates them. I hope we get some good parts.
I wonder if we will get any soldiers in the POTC Theme?

What you mean is, 'I wonder if we WOULD get any soldiers in the POTC Theme?'
I think people need to be careful, because someone might casually read your post and assume the POTC theme is definitely going to happen, and then tell other people it's definitely going to happen and so forth... whereas all we know for certain is that the Lego company is buddies with Disney, and that Disney produce the POTC series, and that a new POTC film is coming out in 2011.

I think POTC absolutely has the potential to make some cool, unique, and original sets.
