There is an entire 8 page thread about this picture.  :pir_laugh2:

Oh, didn't see that. I thought any new news of the black pearl would've been posted on this thread.

I'm not sure if this has already been answered, but are the gold bars and coins in the sets now chromed? Or do you still have to contact TLG to get the chromed ones?

It probably depends which wave you get when buying. They sure didn't remove all the sets with pearl gold from the shelves just for it ...

I didn't think this really warranted a new thread and I couldn't think of where else it belonged...

I was cruising Amazon.ca last night and saw that there are two new minifigure alarm clocks poised to hit the shelves...Jack Sparrow and Barbossa.  No pics available yet, just a product listing.

This doesn't seem out of the ordinary. PotC is a big license for TLG, and with more movies, there is no doubt an ongoing product line. There have been numerous SW clocks, and they must have been good sellers for TLG.

Is the 30132 Jack Sparrow rare? Is it worth much?

It seems to be fairly rare. Here in the US, it was available if you preordered the video game from certain outlets (TRU and Gamestop). It was also available for purchase for $3 during a narrow window of time (a few days only) back in... May, I think? I think in the UK it was part of a newspaper promotion. But these are the only ways the polybag was available. I have a feeling it won't be available at retail again.

According to the Bricklink sales history, it tends to sell for around $6 right now. It looks like it's selling for about $14 now on Amazon, I assume due to scarce stock. Interesting.

In the UK it was available only through HMV and most people I gather didn't find out till after the release. However with these things the shops do have some stock left and might let you buy one if you ask nicely enough, I too missed out unfortunately.

So are there any rumors around what LEGO is doing with this fine line? Any statistics about the sales and how satisfied TLG is with it? I really hope we do see another wave after the Black Pearl in September!

I'm curious to know that as well.  It's been pretty quiet on the PotC front lately, it would be nice to know what the plans are for the line going forward.
Never tell me the odds!

I dont see any reasons why TLC would contiune this line. I want Classic Pirates back! This theme was a really good yes, but i dont really see the point for second wave. Every theme has its end, and POTC has it in Setember. Although i really was hoping Inteceptor, and would like to Lego to release one more set before the line ends.

Every theme has its end when it's exhausted. POTC is far from it after just a year and 8 sets from 4 movies. I can't say that TLG lacks ideas so I would love to see at least one more wave. If they produce 2 ships each time, they've got material for at least 3 more waves if we only count the most important ships. Also there's a big lack of figures from the movies. I miss all the pirate lords, the Spaniards the Honk Kong people Tia Dalma and so on and on ...

As for the classic pirates, I do agree they should reappear but I'd prefer it after another wave of POTC (Come on, I just got used to the fleshies :D). And they should go a bit more civilian and ports way rather than producing a new generic ship and smugglers islands every wave of classic Pirates.

I spoke with an employee at the Lego store and he said that the line has been selling really well and that Lego is happy with it. He also said the Pearl is coming out in September.

Just a couple of Lego Power Functions lights. I'm eventually going to try and light all the lanterns.

I for one really hope that they continue this theme. This theme has so much potential. I'm still trying to get my hands on the QAR and Pearl.I'm hoping to get them for my Birthday and for Christmas, later this year. However, I was reading over at All About Bricks that there hasn't been any information or rumors about the theme continuing next year. I know that it is only August, and rumors of next years sets are just barely beginning to surface, so lets hope that we hear something positive soon.

I saw some promos for it here, iirc. It looked pretty legit, and slightly disappointing. I'll try to link it if I find it.

Or are you asking about the timeframe? Because I cant help there, sorry.

So, is the Black Pearl the only set coming out later this year or is there a whole new wave attached to it?

The Black Pearl is almost certainly the only set coming before the end of the year. It's only speculation whether there will be any more sets at all. There haven't been any solid (or even vague) rumors of other sets coming out.

Are there some events, conventions, toy fairs or whatever in the near future for the new Lego merchandise that's coming out Q4 2011/ Q1 2012? I was really hoping the rumor of the tortuga set to be true.
