Oh, and another note on that;
It simply states that there are sets being produced right now, and that it's currently still going on, so they're merely speaking of the wave we already had,
plus the recent release of the Black Pearl. Which means that they are, like with all themes, going to keep on producing the already-released sets for now before they'd be discontinued. They're not just going to tell you whether's a theme going to continue or not like that.

I wouldn't get your hopes up, guys, this theme is most likely over.
This is just one of those typical responses you could expect from LEGO's Customer Service.

Well I think it slightly went up in probability, just slightly though :pir-grin:

Really? What stores, I've love to stock up on these. I see them fully stocked in Wal Mart and Target, all at full price, plus the Black Pearl barely came out.

Walmart and Target both had most of the sets with the clearance tags such as the QAR, white cap bay, I didn't see London Escape that was still full price.

unusual I thought aswell.

I believe that there will be a fifth Pirates movie, so Lego might continue the Pirates line at least until that time. In the meantime, they might make a few sets from the first three films (wouldn't it be nice to see the Dauntless in LEGO!), because the fourth film was successful, so I don't think that LEGO will give up so easily.

About the fifth film:

With possible further films Lego would be mad to drop a pirate theme like this and if the fifth film is released in 2013 then The Avengers would be a 2012 gap filler in the Disney-Lego partnership. :pir-wink:

Yes more POTC sets are on there way. I have just been to my local Lego store and was talking about LOTR and they revealed that there will be a few more POTC sets including the Flying Dutchman which I was shown a picture of. It looks large and detailed. They seemed very open about it, so can't be long till an official confirmation by Lego is announced.

Damn, somebody's a real POTC fan! I don't remember anyone on that list except the last two.

I'm glad to hear the theme is continuing. A large Dutchman sounds great. I wonder if it's large like the QAR or large like the IFS!

I've got the Pearl and the QAR wrapped up by the Christmas tree right now.  :thumbup: Only 8 more days until Christmas!

I'm actually addicted to the music. My 'addiction' started 2 years ago. Then the new movie came along and now PotC is the start of my lego collection after my dark ages.  :pir-tongue:

The QaR and BP are an ideal Christmas present. Too bad I got them all during the summer break but now that the rumour of a second wave has started, I really can't wait to see the new list of the new wave.

Hey Zeya, I´m a great fan of this line too! We are now four!... I think that the new info about this new wave will come out before Christmas, and I hope that those new sets include some new English and Spanish soldiers and officers, and some crewmen of the Black Pearl...

Regards!

Like Big Cam said, there is no info or details yet. All I saw was small pic in a sort of catalog which showed a large Flying Dutchman set. Like I said, the store employees were very open about it, saying thats the only set they have seen but there are also some other new sets along with it. Their exact word's when I asked about POTC was: 'We know about a large set based on that ship that comes out of the water'
So I said 'you mean the Flying Dutchman'
'Yes that's the one'

The fact that they were open about it makes me think that it will be officially confirmed and shown pretty soon.

I am not going to give a description of what I saw, its down to Lego to release the pics and details, not me.

I would probably assume that there will be one more wave of POTC sets, and the theme will finish with the Dutchman as the large exclusive set.

This is good news! Thanks for sharing Derfel Cadarn.

Can't wait for a new wave of sets!  :pir-sweet:

Huh...you know, a new ship every 6 months or so is actually a good idea. Spreads them out so you can buy them at leisure, and, well, there's a ton of them to design and sell.

I cannot wait for this Flying Dutchman set!!! I hope it comes with Tia Dalma or Pintel & Regetti!  :pir-tongue:  I wouldn't be surpised if the Flying Dutchman is an exclusive and is the final set in the line.

A few days ago, I accidentally discovered: pirates.wikia.com/wiki

It's everything about PotC. I was pretty surprised there is PotCOnline and reading some pages on pirates.wikia, it looks like there are many new caracters and ships in here.
So I am pretty sure TLC can find thousands of ideas from here as well...

But on the opposite side, not everybody knows about POTC-online and they wouldn't get the clue where it comes from if they see a set based on this game in the shop.
Butbut I didn't saw all those new stuff of Star Wars (so I only saw the original 6 movies) and I still bought some sets from those new movies, just because some of the minifigures are really cool. Adapting this to the POTC-line: as long as it looks really cool, people will buy it. And if I was Disney, I would make a deal with TLC where the POTCO-sets are cheaper so more people will discover POTCO and Disney will gain more money from it...

Oh well this is just what I think :D

I think that those figs have nothing to do with the Flying Dutchman. Though I'd really like to see them all and we probably will in some other sets (Tia's shack), I'd prefer to see as many FD crew members in that set as possible. Also a variant with Becket and a few of his guys would be cool, but please LEGO spare us another Jack or Will!

I doubt that Lego PotC will be released in the summer of 2012... They alrdy got LotR, Marvel and Dark knight sets coming out. + We still didn't see any pictures from one of their catalogues. I don't get my hopes up on this one...
