The ship is fantastic! I love the color scheme- all of that medium blue and dark brown is worth the mediocre interior. The minifigs aren't that exciting, although it's great to get two captains in one set, and the new dress is nice.
My main problem with this one though, is that it feels to me like the designers took too long to finalize the design- some parts (interior, deck) look like they were really skipped over, and other parts look fantastic (hull, sails). I would've gladly paid a full 200 USD for a decent interior.
One last thing- does anyone else think that the cabin's rear windows look like owls? The plumes look like eyebrows on the gold sud eyes, and the windows themselves look like the semi-oval body.

1: How did you manage to get this set so early
2: Are the sails the same size as the ones on Brickbeard's Bounty?
Brickbeard is PWNED!!!

Love the brig, galley, the captain's suite with organ, possibly to torture Brickbeard with his poor playing of sea shanties.
Thanks, again for a great review.

Excellent review of an excellent set. It's not perfect, build-wise (the SNOT section) or play-wise (needs more cannons), but I think it holds its own despite these flaws. It's very well scaled as well. I thought the stern was a little low at first, but it seems fine now that I've a closer look at it. I love the detail on the outside and the inside. Even if the color scheme isn't perfect, it fits the imperial line nicely. This review hasn't change my opinion that this set is a must-buy. Now I'll just need to go find someplace that has it out early.

I must comment on the quality of your pics, too. All crystal clear.
The set itself looks fantastic. I never quite realised just how big it was until the comparison pic with BB. It dwarfs Brickbeard's vessel! A very useful parts pack too. A massive amount of rare pieces in rare colours.
Thanks for this amazing review!

Man it makes me want that ship more!
It looks like a stunning set and imo is the best Pirates ship so far.
