Be interesting to see what the torso design is like underneath the beard.

Thanks for the pics, the minifigs are so cool!

So what's up with the Black Pearl? It's Semptember already! The wait is killing me. Anyone has any insider information about the exact release date? Also any rumors on what's happening to the line in 2012? Every theme has some news some even have the pictures ... but Pirates? Pirates should be first to know anything about the illegal stuff ;)

From what I've read, and from here, (http://lego.wikia.co...The_Black_Pearl ), it will come out in time for christmas! Now, doesn't THAT seem just like LEGO... :pir_laugh2:

The figures look great!

The more I see The Pearl the more I want it. I wasn't too interested early on, but now I really want it. Too many legos, not enough monies.

I guess this is it then. No more PotC in 2012? This folder doesn't show us any new sets. There aren't any other Pirate sets either...  :pir-sceptic:

At least not for first wave 2012 (January), it would seem. Aside from the Pearl I suppose. But PotC appeared in the summer, so maybe there will be more sets in summer 2012.

If you guys aren't aware yet, on the Barnes and Noble website (a retailer in the USA), they seem to have had an accidental leak of all the set numbers and most of the names for the January wave. There don't seem to be any PotC sets in there. Furthermore, I see a set for Spongebob called "3817 The Flying Dutchman". A google search shows some cartoony thing that looks like this:LINK. I don't think that set name bodes well for a PotC set for the Dutchman. I don't see them having both sets on shelves at the same time, because that would cause confusion.

My personal opinion - I'm getting skeptical that this theme will continue, at least immediately. Maybe in 2-3 years if they make that 5th movie we might see more sets. We shall see...

P.S. There's a Ninjago ship coming out too. Could be an okay source for parts. Perhaps that's another indicator of a lack of pirate sets into 2012...  :pirate_sad2:

Actually they might both be a valuable source of parts for Pirate MOCs. That Spongebob ship might look quite interesting in LEGO form (possibly grey hull?). Oh well, we'll find out eventually...

The problem is they didn't capitalize on the first three movies when they came out.  Obviously it was a matter of timing, other licenses, and a number of other things, but POTC movies are, like most "series," less and less popular with each one (multiple movies that tell a single story notwithstanding... like SW and LOTR and HP).

The next movie (if there even is one) is almost (almost) guaranteed to be even less popular.  I think they passed the window of opportunity on POTC.

I would love to see a Flying Dutchman, though.  Finally got QAR and am quite happy with it.

That folder looks very interesting, obviously this theme did not sell well enough, so it has gone to the fishes  :pir-laugh:

Lego tried to late to get a deal on these sets, they should of started way back maybe during the 2nd film, sad knowing we will probably never see more POTC sets as there was some very nice possible sets that could of been made

P.S On an unrelated note, Ninjago has become 100 times cooler! And finally a LEGO Chinook! :pir-wub:

Well if you believe everything you read there are 2 more films planned so hopefully there is plenty of life left in this theme yet:

Quote

Fifth and possible sixth film

The actors playing in the fourth film were told by Disney not to occupy their time in the near future, as the studio intends to shoot a fifth and sixth film back-to-back. On January 14, 2011, it was confirmed that Terry Rossio will write the screenplay for the fifth installment, without his co-writer Ted Elliott. Johnny Depp said that he would be happy to return as Captain Jack Sparrow saying "As long as we can put all the puzzle pieces together, I would most definitely consider it". Jerry Bruckheimer said that the fifth film would be a stand-alone film. According to Terry Rossio, the script for the fifth film is finished, and he has handed the script to Disney executives.[24] Speaking at the fourth film's press launch in Cannes, Depp said he would play the role for as long as it is popular with the public. Disney has a wishlist of directors they would like to direct, as Rob Marshall has not yet accepted or declined to direct. The list includes Tim Burton, Sam Raimi, Alfonso Cuaron, Shawn Levy, Chris Weitz, and original Pirates director Gore Verbinski. Gore Verbinski and Tim Burton are Disney's top choices[citation needed] as they have both worked with Disney and Johnny Depp on numerous occasions. Disney wanted Tim Burton for the fourth film as Gore Verbinski would not be returning. On July 6, 2011, Johnny Depp confirmed he was closing in on a deal for the fifth film

I'm really hoping this theme gets another round of new sets. I think it's wrong to kill this thing off so quickly. We've gotten some really good sets, in my opinion.

I'm also hoping this isn't a recap of that Prince of Persia fiasco and they kill off the license before next year.  :pir_bawling:

Does anyone remember that polybag Jack Sparrow that popped up a few pages ago?
Guess what I noticed in this week’s Donald Duck magazine.

There should also be a little LEGO comic in the magazine, I'll probably say something about it once I have looked through the magazine.

I'd like to think that the theme can carry on, even though I loved it, can we all agree that it really wasn't as popular as we could hope?.. and with so many licenced themes out there POTC hasn't really lived up to their names... Just a though  :pir_wacko:
