How many times you will have to say that LT? that was 4th time already :pir_laugh2:
And yes, we are geting 5 gold coins in the set, but also note at there is alot of great parts included and new parts, so its not pity at all IMO.

Captain Becker

EDIT: You are maby right LegoIndy at it mightn not the 100% ready product, but i highly doupt at TLC will change the  pearl gold bars into chrome golden ones. They have been fooling whit the box pictures earlier, at the set would look more cooler. We will see when someone here in Eurobricks makes the Review or you will buy the set.

Maybe yes, maybe no, who knows Captain Becker... I think that the review for the set will have to wait, I´ve spend all my money in the glorious and giant Imperial Flagship... that at this moment is travelling from France to Spain... :D And you have to know that all the brand new lego themes, in Spain come two or three monds later in comparation with the United States... :) Thanks for your thoughts...

I'd like to thanks whoever made that excellent review, even though it was in Russian. I really, really like that set, and I think I'll get it if I have the money. I love the minifigures and all the treasure. Does anyone know how much it'll cost?

I notice (s)he had a photo of all the Jacks. Does that mean (s)he's got all the sets?

It is final product, but maybe LEGO will improve it.

Yes, perhaps, I think that we will see soon reviews of other sets "Pirates of the Carribean".

Its in page 98. As you see, they are a bit over prized.
Can any one put these prizes on to the first post so at it would be for all of us easier to check over there?
I have asked this already many times.

Vagrant, thanks so much for bringing that review to our attention.
The one thing that impressed me most was the excellent packaging of the instructions and poster, cardboard protection and inside a plastic bag, something that has only recently been seen in 1000+ piece sets. I don't know if this is just for PotC smaller sets as they have a poster included but it would be great if this was to make it's way into smaller sets from other themes as well.

The details on the figs are exquisite, although I'm not a fan of what I assume is a mould line running through Elizabeth Swan's hair. If all the PotC sets have these great details I'll end up buying more of them than I planned to.

Wow, a review already?
I have to admit, I was disappointed to see that Jack's outfit was repeated a few times throughout the sets (previously, it was stated that every set has a different variation of Jack), but the review show that there are actually different heads, not just outfits. This is great news, and the head variations are all available in the smaller sets that I was originally going to buy. :classic:
That said, the torso prints are great, too.

It's OK, and it wasn't aimed at anyone specifically. It's just we get loads of complaints with topics like this. Now that the sets are actually turning up the conversation should be more easily kept LEGO related.

I look forward to seeing the rest of the reviews, vagrant! I'm most looking forward to the Whitecap Bay review, because I'd like to see more photos of those beautiful mermaid figures. May I ask where you got these sets?

I already posted this in the sales and deals topic, but I thought this might interest some people over here as well.

Pirates of the Caribbean sets available for pre-order at 15% discount in The Netherlands.

Where?: brickshop (Dutch LEGO webshop)
Discount valid until the first of may 2011.

When you order a complete set, you also get a free keychain and free shipping: POTC collection

As far as I know they only ship within The Netherlands, sadly.
(Btw, I ordered here a couple of times and never had any problems, so it should be safe)

I got them to ship my UCS millenium falcon (last in stock) to Belgium. But then again, they are expensive. I paid my MF 680 euro's

Okay, back on topic: Vagrant do you know when the other reviuw will be there?
we're all a little mad here
especially me.

15% is low for a shop. Most online stores give 20% or more.

Thanks for the link to the review, vagrant! That set is very good, but I'm probably not going to get it because there's not that many parts that I'm interested in.

Interesting review, to bad it's completely in Russian. Anyone cares to translate?  :pir-tongue:

From the pictures the set doesn't seem that interesting: mediocre design, few interesting parts and overpriced (as usual with lincensed themes).

Although I'm glad reviews are popping up for these sets, and I'm quite psyched about them getting released soon... I'm a bit dissapointed about what I've seen from de reviews. It's mostly little touches about the sets that could have been improved though. Let's hope the QAR makes up for this.. cause daaaamn, that thing's just way too awesome!

Well the best sets are yet to come: Whitecap Bay, London Escape and QAR.  I actually found the sets a bit better than I thought based on the official pictures.  But I agree it's too expensive to buy the mediocre sets as well.
Trouble is brewing...
