Back: Unfortunately the semi-circular tab has torn away a large chunk of the box but we can still see some extra model ideas including a jeti and a camp. The backgrounds shows a map.
The instructions are printed both sides of one A6 sheet. It shows the 7 stages and one large picture of the set.
With a total of just 23 pieces there aren't many that really stick out. My favorite piece is of course the pirate flag.
This set does however come with one spare sword which is handy. You can never have too many swords.
This set comes with just one minifigure but he's a gooden. This scurvy sea dog has great fashion sense with matching trousers and bandanna. I also really like his head, in photos of this head i have seen on the internet it looks really basic and old but the scruffy hair and stubble wouldn't look out of place on a modern minifig.
This being the small set that it is, was very simple to assemble and took less than a minute. 'Nuff said
Well here it is, the final piece. No special features to show you and nothing you wouldn't have noticed from the Box which is fair enough, it is a small set.
Design: 9/10 With any set this size there are very few criticisms you can make on design. Maybe they should have used brown for a wooden raft?
Parts: 10/10 this may seem generous but for what it is its parts meet it perfectly and there were 2 swords.
Build: 10/10 Again no criticisms for such a tiny set and its simplicity make it buildable by any LEGO fan.
Minifigures: 10/10 Great minifig and the set only needs one character, he is shipwrecked after all.
Playability: 9/10 Because this pirate is ship wrecked the kids can play with him as he is, he doesn't need a big boat or any imperials.
Price: 8/10 I don't know the actual price of this set when it was released so i cant be too judgmental but i have found that small sets are usually overpriced.
TOTAL: 56/60 and i think it deserves that score, there aren't many pieces but there don't need to be if the child has any other LEGO he could easily make an island or a rescue party and make up a whole story.
