Ya, when I noticed that I instantly thought "Ghost SW minifigs". If TLG has found a way to do trans skeleton parts, maybe normal minifig parts are in the close future?

The funny thing is that the Lego POTC game shows some lego sets such as the Black Pearl, Flying dutchman and the QAR, and so far the QAR is an LDD Spitting image of the real Lego QAR ship, I wonder if the black pearl and the Flying Dutchman will follow suit.
When you see the QAR docked, its the same way you would have your ship docked without sails, I mean it looks surreal, if any one wants pics in comparison I would be glad to show you guys, but I mean it's amazing what the Black Pearl and the flying dutchman will be. I wonder if we'll see the Endeveaour or the Dauntless.

Due to B&N being annoying and once again canceling my order YET AGAIN, looks like I'll have to wait to get this set.

I saw the picture and didn't like how there wasn't any space for blackbeard to be in the middle, here's my version of the captain's cabin with QAR mixed in, I had to scatter the table and the globe to the bottom where the canon's are to fit confortably. I had to remove the two gold pieces of the globe and switched with a cannon stud to make sure it stays put.
EVERYTHING on the captain's cabin fit perfectly on the ship with out heavy modifications. hehe some, but I think it's cool. I also hate the fact that the Mini Fig "Gunner" of QAR is missing the Sword holster, I must have seen the WhiteCap Bay and the Captain's Cabin with Gunner comes with his Sword, but not on the QAR set.
Here's some pics!
Steady as she goes:
Captain's Cabin with QAR:
here's Gunner minifig with the holster. hehe

£100 is generally well out of my price range. However, after much buttering up of the missus (Oh, you treat yourself to this... you treat yourself to that...) I'd made my mind up when visiting Liverpool that I was going to buy the Black Pearl from the LEGO shop as thats more in the £80 price range which I find it easier to justify. However it was out of stock and as I'd set my heart on getting myself a ship I pushed the boat out and got the QAR.
Exterior-wise she's beautiful. All the bones really set the tone of her being a pirate-ship not to be messed with! The sails are fantastic and the capstan with the anchor is a really nice touch! She may not be quite accurate of the ship on the film but what lego products are completely accurate of their film counterparts?
Initially I was disappointed to see that she has stickers at the back. I dislike stickers generally but I do feel that these work well!
Interior wise. Meh. Pretty bland but nothing that cant be modded!
For the pricetag it would have been nice to have had an extra cannon to complete the broadside (whats with having two gun-flaps without a gun-port under them also?). Wheels for the cannons, a door to the cabin and generally a few finishing touches to the inside.
In my opinion TLC got this around 95% right. A tad more fine-detail on the interior and general polishing would have got it to the 100% mark!
