Since we have had no access to this set, at the moment we do not have photos. I think there will be lot of reviews as soon as the sets will hit the shelves... However, there's still a chance we'll be able to get the "London Escape". Small chances though...
Just out of curiosity, where is it you get these sets from? I know they're not yours, but do you know what country they're from, or how the person that let you borrow the sets got them?

Is there a list of the prices anywhere? I just would like to know how I should budget my money when these sets come out, and I can't find the CAD prices anywhere... can someone help?

I think it won't be right to name the person here (or anywhere online), so...

The sets we have had an opportunity to work/play with are obviously for European market: no pieces count is printed on the box (and French/Spanish titles are missing too).

I assure you the way the sets appeared is 100% official, so one can say these early reviews are part of some sort of marketing of the PotC sets.

I guess every set has a collectible card. That's pretty cool. I wonder what exactly that code is on the back. Translating a snippet of the review with Babelfish, it says that the reviewer doesn't really know what the code is for either. I guess the website isn't set up to support those codes yet.

Actually, the cards and codes are only in On Stranger Tides products. The posters, however, come with every set regardless of it's movie origin.

Treasures, eh? I'll be the judge of that. It'll probably be a secret message like "Drink more Ovaltine".

I think I remeber reading they are somehow linked to the game. Don't know how though, maybe the code on the poster with the wooden Jack unlocks him in the game..

The cards themselves are cool.  I don't even need the code.  That globe is fantastic! Definitely can't wait for this set!

Here's one image that shows the price for the Black Pearl (which won't be out until November) at least for the Canadian price, $130 Canadian.

I think I remember reading somewhere the Canadian prices for the sets but I just can't seem to find it right now.

EDIT: Found the page on ftbt's photostream on flickr and in their photo descriptions, there's listing of the prices in both American and Canadian.

I just took a look at the CAD prices, and they are all understandable except for Whitecap Bay. 100 bucks! Are you serious LEGO!  :pir-sick:

Anyway, I am still gonna get all of them, and probably Isla de Meurta first (gotta love Barbossa!  :monkey: )

Also, I just finished watching At World's End, and I was thinking that it would be cool if they made Captain Fang's ship, with the cool asian style sails and crew members!

EDIT: I just noticed that the hat that Blackbeard has in LEGO form looks nothing like the one he has in the film. They purposely designed his hat to be the perfect shape for Davy Jones's hat so they must be planning for him to appear eventually!

If this line does well, I can't see a reason they wouldn't make his ship.  I would definitely buy it.

I walked into my local K-mart this morning. I quickly glanced up the LEGO aisle, the local k-mart store is pretty pathetic when it comes to stocking any new products. So i thought "just look up there you may never know" as i turned and looked i saw that they have extended their lego section. Then i saw a k-mart worker stacking the shelves with new LEGO boxes. I got excited, my excitement went up to 11 when i saw those boxes looked awfully like the POTC boxes we have seen photos off.

As i got closer i saw that those boxes were hero factory boxes.  :pir_bawling:

This happened to me yesterday at Target. I thought for sure that it was the POTC line but alas, Hero Factory.

@ Fives
I think if they make a Davy Jones fig and it looks somewhat like the one from the video game, it could become one of my favorites.

Is the April 16th date I've seen posted a worldwide release date or US only? There is no mention of any UK release dates and the lego UK shop@home site has no information on it yet.

Davy Jones is my favourite POTC character, along with Jack and Barbossa. He will be my favourite minifig of the whole line (possibly of every line).

As for the boxes thing, I am surprised that the Hero Factory boxes are s similar. I have not seen any of them, but you would think TLG would make sure they are different enough.

I'm lucky enough to be albe to work in the back room of my Walmart so I can see all the new freight. Unfortunately, we've been getting TONS of last year's sets and the early 2011 sets, but none of the summer 2011 sets. There really isn't a whole lot of shelf space for a new series of sets or a new theme and judging by the constant reestocking of old sets, I doubt we'll have room soon.

I would think it would be a worldwide release date, and if it isn't, thats stupid.

As for the shop@home, there is nothing on the Canada site either, and I doubt the US site has any info too. So, I think the sets will be up on the site on the 16th (and they better be in the stores too  :monkey: )

Ah, good. There is already talk about release dates. This way I won't be too off topic  :pir-blush:

About this worldwide release you're talking about, how sure is it? 'cause at first I thought the sets would be released in May, along with the release of the game and the fourth movie. But now I hear talk about an April release. So I was mainly wondering whether that goes for the Netherlands as well.
Hope someone can bring some certainty to this matter  :pir-classic:
Thanks in advance :pir-sweet:

Mitch

Does anyone know what the 4th movie is about, since I haven't seen any trailers. Could someone please inform me on the plot? Thanks.

P.S. So April 16th is the offical release date then, eh? Wonderful! :thumbup:

Here's the official plot released by Disney:
"Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed adventure. Crossing paths with the enigmatic Angelica (Penélope Cruz), he's not sure if it's love—or if she's a ruthless con artist who's using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne's Revenge the ship of the legendary pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn't know whom to fear more: Blackbeard or Angelica, with whom he shares a mysterious past."

Amazon.co.uk shows the Queen Anne's Revenge will be released (at least in the UK) on May 3rd.
