Only the information about Johnny Depp's current filming status and the PoTC 5 listing came from IMDb. The fact that Johnny Depp had signed a six picture deal with Disney was reported on E! (can't remember the program) before On Stranger Tides was released.

[On a side note, it was reported that Mr. Depp is now single. Good hunting ladies. :pir-grin: ]

Back to the theme at hand, there are at least six more ships and plenty of scenes from the movie series that TLG can produce between movie releases. I doubt we'll see a return of Classsic Pirates until after the DVD release of the sixth movie.

Is this proof of the Flying Dutchman set? Or is it just the QAR? The colours look off. (You can see it next to Brickbeard's Bounty left of Woody & Buzz and the Black Pearl is above the big cardboard Woody & Buzz.)

This looks interesting, but it's probably just a prototype that won't be released. Perhaps there'll be room for it if LEGO decide to make more POTC sets to coincide with the release of the fifth film.

Interesting find. Its plausible that this could be a prototype Dutchman, although its a little to distant to make out for sure. I don't think its the QAR given the wildly different colour scheme, although the cabin is somewhat reminiscent of Blackbeard's ship. It actually looks quite big, certainly in comparison to Brickbeard's Bounty. Unfortunately its unlikely we'll see a Dutchman in production any time soon.

Are you guys talking about the ship way off in the distance on some counter?  If so, that would seem to be a very unsafe place to keep a prototype, on top of a counter where just anyone could probably swipe or unintentionally misplace.  Something like that would probably be behind glass or with some protective measures.

I think it could be a new ship, as their are some of the never to be second wave Alien Conquest sets on a simlar shelf, with various new sets around (Helms Deep, Mandolarion Shuttle...), possiblly from the rumored Ninja VS Pirates theme? Who knows...

The Flying Dutchman didn't get cancelled as it was never intended to be made in the first place.

No, it's been known for a while that Lego did plan to release a FD. We don't know if they canceled it because they canceled the entire line, or if they canceled it because the large ships weren't selling well.

That's a VERY interesting image, the colour scheme certainly looks like what LEGO would pick. However, the desks in the office also seem to have just random MOCs made by the employees, possibly it's just a MOC? Also, it's next to the BB, not the BP which is about a desk to the right.

(In other slightly related news, is that a Isengard tower I see???)

Yes, that would be helpful.

And LEGO POTC may still live, as the Voodoo Jack Sparrow set (30132) has been revealed to be part of the lineup of the Sun newspaper promotions in the UK in October (see here).

I believe that the mysterious ship in the Lego designer's room is in fact FD. The colors make it look just like it.

OHMYGOSH I hope they make a ship like that  :pir-cry_happy:  It looks like an EITC ship  :pir-classic:  Maybe they'll release the Dutchman if they release that? This is off topic but is anyone else wondering why they have Hot wheels and Playmobil on the counter?   :pir_wacko:

Perfect answer! I was wondering that as well though. Maybe for inspiration? I mean, they sell a lot and are very popular. Let's justr be happy it wasn't Mega-Bloks. :pir-tongue:

Old news. It was reported long ago that Johnny Depp has signed on for six POTC movies.

I hope they reprint the Black Pearl if they decide to make more when POTC 5 comes out. I wanted to add the Pearl, just never had the money at the time :(

I really hope they make a FD set though! I just want the 2 iconic ships lol, and I'd be good to go.

I think movie 5 will be about Jack and Gibbs trying to release the Pearl from the bottle, and Barbossa, having Blackbeard's sword, is the only person with the power to do so.

I really doubt we'll ever see any more sets from the first 3 films.

As many problems as the Black Pearl had, I'd hate to have "another" Black Pearl ship released. They should release something new to keep people interested. I saw the Black Pearl on clearance all around me, so at least here not a lot of people wanted it (or they just ordered too many thinking there was more of a demand). Plus, it was the Black Friday deal last year or two years ago at Target. I know that doesn't help everyone that missed out on it, but for those who did already purchase it, it would be a turn off. The sad thing is, it would probably be loads better than the initial release which would be more upsetting also. Not to mention having dozens of Jack Sparrows walking around..

As far as future sets go, I would like to see some early movie sets again, just to help develop the theme as a whole. Not that there are a lot more places they could use that they didn't already. I thought the initial wave had a good mix of old with new, granted I was lost completely on the new sets since I didn't see the movie until months after it was released on dvd.

The huge problem story wise vs technical capabilities is they gave Barbossa the QAR. The QAR and the Black Pearl are simply massive redresses of the same ship / set. So it is very very difficult and expensive to put both on screen in the same movie. After the massive profit bomb of the Lone Ranger it is likely that the next PotC movie will not have as huge a budget as some of the prior films.

I hope you're wrong about the budget Faefrost, though it might be the case. However, the next POTC movie budget should not be judged by the bombing of Lone Ranger but by the success of the fourth POTC movie. I Agree on the QAR / BP part and hope they still manage to do it somehow. If the ships don't apear on screen at the same time, it's simple to shoot one ship scenes first, then do the makeover for the second ship scenes. But anyway with all the CGI and stuff they can still be put on screen together.

As for the sets, I really hope there is a next wave and that some of the sets will still be based on the first three movies. I still miss Tia Dalma and Captain Teague minifigs! In that case, they can produce a full wave of 8 - 9 sets instead of just 5 ...
