Looking at a few Brickset forums and found this a few posts down:

Sounds exciting!

EDIT: 8805?....hmm. Odd.

That list was just made for a joke as people were doubting the validity of the Olympic minifigures.

The person on the Brickset forum who I first heard about the FD from was also correct about a couple other rumored sets. Like the haunted house and chrome protocol droid. However I do recall him mentioning in a post that they are no longer doing a flying dutchman.

I finally found the reason why Lego used Davy Jones hat for Blackbeard instead of a regular tricorn:

It should work now.

I hope that Lego makes more Potc sets. Not only have they sold well, but they are nice sets with many interesting pieces and minifigs.  :pir-classic:

I also wish that Lego would have made more POTC sets. Especially from the first three movies. Most of the sets were from the 4th, and none were from the 3rd.  :pir-hmpf_bad:
For example, a singapore set would have been really cool, or maybe one of Sao Feng's ships. A tortuga set would have been nice also.

I think Lego should come out with a 4-8 cannon Flying Dutchman this year as POTC's last set. the question is when.

I do as well but the realistic part of me says they won't. With the last wave they had the movie to bounce off of. With the exception of Lord of the Rings, LEGO usually only releases Licensed sets when there is a corresponding movie or current show. That way its easy for their sets to be relevant.

I would love that as well, but bouncing off what I said above, I kind of doubt it. We can hope though.

Then if you don't think Lego will make a set, then what will they do with Pirates? Will they release a Classic-Pirates theme near Christmas?

I hate to think this way but past history has shown us they may just drop Pirates all together. Before their comeback last year we went years with no Pirates sets.  :pir-cry_sad:

Is there a way through the EB Ambassador program, we could make sure this doesn't happen.

We can suggest or ask for a Pirate theme, but TLG has a roadmap I'm sure and they can't just whip up a new theme because a few people want it. There is no sure way to make it happen.

I'd check in the Ambassador forum and search for a thread about Pirates.

Also before starting the new one I'd check about the rules for that area. Honestly I'm not really familiar with the Ambassador program as I am not one.

After watching POTC: 3 last night, I had an idea. TLG should make the HMS Endeavor. But a small Lego version like they did with the BP and QAR.

Its a nice idea but I don't see it happening. As has already been observed further POTC sets are looking increasingly unlikely. If they don't release a Dutchman, I certainly don't see them making an Endeavor.  :pir-cry_sad:

...
It's very unlikely that this ship would ever be produced, it doesn't play a major role in the movie so it is of less importance, if LEGO would consider bringing out another POTC ship they'd rather take the Flying Dutchman. Keep dreaming though  :pir-classic:

I would think the best way to do this is for someone to put up an incredible MOC on CUUSOO, that way we as a community could all vote for it, and that would serve to show TLG that there is still a huge interest for LEGO Pirates and there is still a loyal fan base who would purchase the products.

Only problem is there has so far only been 1 non-licensed set to pass the CUUSOO 10,000 vote mark (the modular western town) and that took FOREVER to get votes, even with the support of nearly every fan based LEGO website, and there are a number of amazing pirate ship MOCS on CUUSOO such as the http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/2372 and there doesn't seem to be much support for it as it is..

I just wish LEGO would make one last set and launch it as an exclusive.

Well Pirates 5 is on the cards, they're working on a script apparently. So I can see LEGO resurrecting the theme when that movie comes out. But until them, probably no new sets.

In my opinion that is the only time we'll see new PotC sets.

I've said it numerous times TLG only releases Licensed sets when there is a movie or current show for them to piggy back on. So far I have not been wrong. Now the Superman sets are the only exception I can think of but they are kind of piggy backing off of the other superhero movie. Same goes for batman, they are lumping them all into superheroes since there is a current movie related to superheroes.

I didn't comment on this at the time, but from yellowcastle's list, I think we could be getting the Dutchman for Chrsitmas

here

TC-14 and Olympics were subsequently confirmed so hopefully 8805 is real too.  Very odd set number though, doesn't feel quite right.

Now we've seen those two other sets the FD is looking a bit more realistic. But if it is 128.99 then I fear over how large it is. Maybe a two decked, four cannon ship, that'll look nice.

I would not be so sure about two decked, the price is very similar to QAR and I suppose the Kraken is to be made from bricks so there are going to be less pieces used for the actual ship.
But we can always cross fingers.  :pir-sweet:
