Would anyone be up to the task of translating the reviews into English?

Goole chromes auto translate works pretty well for me, you can undertsand what it says, but obviously its abit odd sounding.

The minifigure for Will is really great and I really like the new ponytail hair.

I have to agree that both those sets arn't great, but the figs are great. The 3 biggest sets of this line will be worth it though. According to my contact, pics of the Black Pearl should be surfacing within the next month. I will try and post a pic if im allowed.

No I havn't seen it yet, but I know prelim pics have been taken, so they should surface soon, and if I get hold of a pic before they go online then I will post it here straight away. Although Lego have a habit of removing them pretty quick, which is expected of course.

I hope we don't have to wait to long before we see what the Black Pearl will look like. But I kind of doubt it will look as nice as the Queen Anne's Revenge. Especially when it's 300 pieces smaller. I know that the Black Pearl is the focus point as far as ships go in the POTC franchise. But if you compare the details of the two ships used in the films, I think you'll agree with me that the Black Pearl is pretty ordinary looking in comparison to the Queen Anne Revenge.

Well preliminary pictures almost never have finalised figures, so I'm guessing this won't.

I don't know does anyone here already has some PotC sets, but forum member on Kockice Dobitak
already has Black Pearl (he is from Bosnia).

I will ask him to join the Eurobricks, or at least take some better pictures, but he has already posted three
of them (although they could be better).

Oh, please do a review! I notice that you're in the UK - is it an online shop or a physical store that you can get them from? I'm interested in buying one or two of these sets.

Are they doing some sort of trading card thing? Maybe like Ninjago except not a game card?

Also, it looks like the Jack Sparrow hat/hair is all one piece. That means the Blackbeard hat/hair is all one piece, too.

If Blackbeard's  hat/beard was one piece they would have made it look more like the movie hat. It's 2 pieces so they can use the hat for Davy Jones aswell.  Someone get that guy with QAR set to take photos se we can see for sure.

Theres an anchor in the whitecap bay set! that was a suprise to me.

Thanks vagrant! The set looks fantastic, but it's overpriced. I love those mermaids a lot, and the lighthouse is well designed with lots of play features. Thanks again!

Great set and great design.  The minifigs are outstanding (especially Jack and the mermaids look simply stunning).  The building itself also looks great.  This is a must-have for me.

This is the standout set for me - a proper large playset, fully realised with loads of features and those mermaids are must-haves!
