Hey everyone,

Mister Phes has been kind enough to host some more scans I've made of early LEGO Pirate material in my collection.  This time we're taking you all the way back to 1989, the first year of the Pirates, with the Summer 1989 issue of Bricks 'N Pieces, the official magazine of the UK LEGO Club.  It's pretty cheesy, but very fun.  Don't miss:

A short Pirate comic

Hilarious brick-built Pirate accessories

A giant size Forbidden Island

Cool Pirate gear

<div style="width: 400px; background:#F8E2BA; padding: 10px 2px; margin: 5px auto; border: 1px solid #D1B98F;">Check out the Magazine Scans</div>

Stay tuned, because I'll be making more scans the next time I'm at home!

I added the magazine cover to the first post - it should help boost attention levels!

Thanks for posting. These are very nice.
I especially liked the life-size forbidden island and the HMS Victory model.

Very neat re-seeing those shots! Although it is making me very nostalgic  :pir-hmpf:

those were the days.

I still have the shell of my black seas baracuda! They don't make them like they used to.

This was great. I never got the lego magazine when I was little. I just remember when i got the Black Seas Barracuda on Christmas morning. I've never seen it, but that is one of the sets that I kept and still have today. Good memories. :pir-wub:
