Classic Pirates. There is no other theme like it. At least that's my opinion, and that's why I bought Saber Island, the smallest of the Bluecoat forts. I decided that although it's already been reviewed, Twice, it deserves another.
Pieces: 96 (according to brickset)
Price: $15.50 but now it's around £20/$20
I don't have the box, but the art is the same as the instructions
The instructions have no piece callouts but it does have a birdseye view for where to put the pieces on the baseplate.
Great design on the minifigs. Two soldiers, which you can't have enough of, and yet another De Martinet
The backs have no printing, as none did back then. At least we get two backpacks.
We also get a lot of weapons. 2 muskets, 3 swords, a flintlock pistol and a cannon for only 3 figs
The Rowing Boat
The Row Boat is a nice touch, and really adds to the set in my opinion. You can use it to patrol round the island.
The small flag is printed and looks really nice.
This is the baseplate you build the outpost on. It's quite small but in the end the set looks quite big. Well at least for the piece count.
The finished set looks nice and is should make a proud part of your Lego empire.
I especially like how the outpost looks on this side. With the palm tree and nice balcony, it really fits the Caribbean look.
Sadly it doesn't look as good from the back, with no wall or fence for playability. At least you get a sword holder.
You get another printed flag, just a lot bigger this time.
The complete set looks brilliant, and looks like a lot more than 92 pieces.
Time for Ratings!
Playability: A lot of figs and a rowboat to patrol, but without a pirate it will always be hard too have fun with it. 6/10
Price: I got mine for with harbor sentry for £17 including P&P which I think is good. 8/10
Pieces: a lot of big wall pieces, but a nice palm tree is included. 7/10
