How can we get TLG to bring Classic-Pirates back!

That's a way we could do it. But, I was thinking of a way through the Ambassador Program on EB.

But I'm suggesting it to be released this Christmas. Unless, that's to soon.

Supporting in Cuusoo: trebuchet, big trees, medieval theatre wagon, blacksmith's house...

I think it's easy to understand why TLG doesn't want to release classic Pirates and PotC at the same time. As it is, notice that there haven't been two consecutive years with full waves of Pirates sets whether licensed or non-licensed in the past decade. It's similar to how TLG seems to only release a really big castle every other year. I get the idea that they only want one really big castle and one really big pirate ship on regular retail shelves every two years, probably because larger sets don't tend to sell at nearly the same rate as smaller sets and so they want to give buyers a lot of time to invest in the big sets. It's just that in the Pirates theme, they seemingly don't see much point in releasing a wave of smaller sets in between big pirate ships-- and I can't say I blame them for that either.
I don't think a petition would do much good, because I think TLG already knows what kind of demand there is for classic Pirates sets in the AFOL community. The problem is that there are probably other market forces involved in such a decision-- they probably don't want to release classic Pirates sets that will still be on store shelves when the next PotC film is released because they're worried about the two themes cannibalizing each other's sales.

I wouldn't worry.

TLG don't need to be told to bring Pirates back - they're capable of deciding for themselves if it's a good business idea. If it is, they will, if it isn't, they won't. You probably don't need to petition something like this.

It never hurts for consumers to tell a company that they would like a previous product back. Nothing wrong with being proactive.

- Buy as many LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean products as you possibly can to ensure sales remain high. They're still available from the Online LEGO Shop in many regions.
- Participate in as many official LEGO survey and Ambassador Projects as possible. The more people who respond, the more the perceived interest there will be in LEGO Pirates...
Alternatively, if you have an idea for a more singular set, then CUUSOO could be a possible avenue... But you'd have to be very skillful to get 10,000 votes... Very skillful...
