The LDD file of Port Royal is finished! You can download it here.

I tried but failed to find the two sea-weed pieces (one for the rock and one for the dock) in all four modes, so apologies for that. Have fun with it!

Besides the Black Pearl set coming in November, does anyone know when a new wave of sets might come? Would it be in winter (January), or next summer (June), or even later?

And do you think they would come out with another 8 sets in a wave, or would they have fewer sets?

I know nobody knows for sure, but I'm wondering how it typically works with a successful licensed theme (like maybe Harry Potter that have had more than one wave of sets).

I think that in November we get BP. At the same time we get 'leaked' images of the newer sets (or may get said leaked images a month or so before) due to come out January, just in time for your favourite Penguin's birthday.

P.S Omitting the penguin part this is what I think will happen, also I think images of the BP will be here within one week. Just speculation.

I didn't see this posted in the last couple of pages so I thought I'd post it here.  It looks pretty well done if you ask me.  Though peoples faces have so much more expression.

The PC demo for the Pirates Video Games is up on The Lego POTC products page. It's the reward for completing all the games and tasks (in the center of the map). They're not that hard to do...
Not sure if this would be the right place to post this...
Oh well, hope this helps!

I don't know if anyone has noticed this but on the wikipedia page for lego PoTC it has a minifigure listing for the Black Pearl,
Might not be that accurate judging that anyone can edit though....

Good list there: Jack, Will, (hopefully a new) Elizabeth, Gibbs, Pintel, Ragetti and Davy Jones.  Seven figs, and at least 3 all-new ones.

That minifig listing could be a very possible group. They all play big roles in DMC, and if we get a new Elizabeth, that will be three or four completely new figs, as mentioned above. That sounds about right. LEGO likes to release more exclusive or new figs in their more expensive sets.

I also hope this set comes with the Kraken!! But definetly, a new Elizabeth would be awesome. I mean, she can't run around in her dress ALL the time!!

I thought it would be Davy Jones, why make a set based on the second movie and not have the main villain? Even if he is not on the ship i'm sure he was added so you get an 'exclusive' Davy Jones. I would actually like to have the Kraken on the side of the ship, it would be awesomesauce.

Well, I wouldn't really like to see the kraken in the BP set, as I already wonder how large it is supposed to be. At $100 it should be (thinking propotionally) 2/3 of the QAR, which wouldn't be much. I actually think it would happen to be larger, but it can't be very close to the QAR set, as it's really much cheaper. So, if there's a kraken in it as well, it would mean the ship itself would be again a bit smaller, so we finally would end up with a midi-sized BP, which I wouldn't be very happy about. :pir-hmpf_bad:
Long story short, I don't think we should exspect TLG to give us a set that's nearly as large as the QAR and contains a proper kraken and is ways cheaper.

Ha, awesomesauce...  :pir-laugh:

The Kraken would be awesome, but they need to do it properly. It can't just be a little thing with tentacles, they need to make a big one. Like, tentacles the length of the ship. That would be intense. It cannot just be like an afterthought sort of thing, like a day before the deadline, the designers were sitting there talking "Okay, we are done this set. Is there anything else we could add. Hmmm... How about the Kraken!" Then we get a little octopus off to the side sucking off the barnacles of the ship.  :pir-laugh:

I really doubt at we are getting Davu Jones whit the Pearl, Maby in the second wave even at its unlikely at we are even getting that.
I think we get next minifigs:
Barbossa: The aptain of the BP
Jack Sparrow: Trying to get the pearl to himself
Will and Elizabeth Turner: Whit the jack willing to help him.
And thats it. And i dont think at BP will be so great as we think. Judging by the piece count and at somebody thinks at we are getting the same looking BP as in the game. Not gonna happen! It will be a huge let down if i say. But we will see, and what cmes whit the Kraken, TLC probably gies us the tiny tiny octopus whit the pearl if at all :pir-classic: I know at im being a negative here, but thats what i think.
PS: Sandy, did you travel all the way to New York just to get the POTC sets? (Probably you were just in Holiday). If so, does this mean at we aret gonna get POTC in Finland, havent saw the sets yet, and im starting to be a bit nervous. :pir-sceptic:

Peronally, I think that's a plausible list. Looking forward to Davy Jones. I suppose we're not getting the Dutchman, so we're at least getting its captain to hold us back for awhile.  :pir-tongue:

Barbossa does not step foot on the Black Pearl in DMC (but you do see his foot :pir_laugh2:), so I think that is highly unlikely, on the other hand Davy Jones does and this would indicate LEGO adding him on the ship.
Why?
Because some customers would buy the BP simply because of the minifigures (in some extreme cases)and making 4 exclusive minifigures in one set makes the set highly resellable in a sense, also it would just be awesomesauce  :pir_laugh2:.

Do we know for sure that there will be a second wave of sets, except for the Black Pearl ?
If there is a second wave, then more ships would be on the horizon so to speak ! :pir-wink:

Captain Becker

Since the Black Pearl is based on the second movie, Barbossa will most likely not be in this set, since he's dead for most of that movie.  Jack, Will, and Elizabeth are on the list that was posted at Wikipedia.  Gibbs is as well, and he's already in one of the sets.  I don't think the set will be a let-down at all; some people just need to manage their expectations.  Am I expecting the set to look exactly like the model from the game?  No.  It's and 800 piece set at 100 dollars with minifigs.  It won't look like it does in the game.  I'm not expecting tiled decks.  I'm not expecting full rigging.  I'm expecting a decent set that can be modded to my pleasure and liking, and if it includes a few new minifigs, great.  I'd still buy it for the black sails and hull pieces, even if it only had rehashed figs.

Also, I don't think you're justified AT ALL in saying there will be only the one wave; from what I've seen, the sets seem to be pretty popular.  And as I posted a few weeks ago, the manager at my local LEGO Store pretty much confirmed there will be sets after the Black Pearl, but he was mum on the details.

If the BP is actually how it is describedin the wiki, then this is a definite buy for me. Davy Jones just adds to the awesomeness of this already fantastic ship. I think he's added to hold us off until the next wave where I hope we get more Flying Dutchman crew members, and maybe the ship itself as well. What other sets would Davy Jones come in anyway?

btw, this would be my first real Lego pirate ship, so I hope it won't disappoint. :pir_laugh2:

I believe that the 'BP' will really just turn out to be a little bit of a destroyed Black Pearl and the Kraken. It won't be the actual Black Pearl, but mainly just the 'Battle of the Kraken'. Just a thought.

Why is everyone assuming that The Black Pearl will have the Kraken? The confirmed info we have on the set proves that it'll have around 800 pieces and cost roughly $100 (USD). I'd rather have a good looking ship than parts of a destroyed ship and some extra pieces that form a partial Kraken. The flagship of the POTC francise should not be a pile of overcooked calamari.

Since all the POTC sets so far have depicted "action" scenes to attract the younger fans I think that its safe to say that we can expect a villain or two in the pearl  :pir_laugh2:
And since Davy Jones is the only main villain they haven't created (not counting Beckettt) I think we may see him  :pir-cry_happy:
I however doubt that the Kraken will make an appearance, for some reason I'm imagining it to be the scene where Jones goes on the Pearl and his fishy :shark: henchmen hold the crew hostage (swords to the throat) whilst Jones and Jack talk

I would rather have parts of a ship and a big Kraken rather than a ship that's smaller then The QAR, knowing that later on they would make a better BP!!! The BP should be massive with all of the crew and it shouldn't be based on a particular movie, but based on all. I mean, if it is just a ship with no Kraken, then why would they bother to put 'Dead Man's Chest', other than to put Davy Jones in it?? The BP does not have many exciting scenes until the big Kraken attack in DMC.

Ok, rant over.  :pir-cry_happy:

If this is the case, then its an odd move to release it alone later than the rest of the sets, also the fact that the name of the set is simply "the black pearl" i dont think there'll be anything other than that,  maybe a boat ofor Jack to cowardly row away in  :pir-classic:
