Such a cool set! I'm surprised to see it has six cannons (Rather then just the three you see on the box!), and I love that mini Metalbeard! The whole thing is so gigantic. I'd love to have it, but I'm not sure on the price, it's a bit high.

The UK price looks surprisingly good.  I wish they had kept the golden octopus from the movie, I loved that stern so much.

Woah!!! (Quoting Emmet) Awesome! Though I'm having mixed feelings about the MiniBeard. He just looks, meh. Anyway, I don't have enough words for the ship. That thing is BOSS.

What a display piece! And what an incredible price - they are giving this away for so many bricks, a star wars set would have been £275!

It might be a hopeless mash of bizarre styles - but it just has 'it' that 'wow, it will display great' vibe. First day buy for me.

Love the mini Metal Beard - think he looks better actually.
It's all part of the plan....

Want this even more now that the official pics are out. Price isn't too bad for us the UK considering how many pieces.

Awesome, awesome, AWESOME!!

Not sure if I will pick this up -- it'd probably be for Queasy Kitty, Vitruvius, and Benny.

It looks awesome! I really like mini-metalbeard, I love how all his details are just shrink, I especially like that brickbuilt little shark! It has tons of details, massive size, what's not to love?

Well, it's the price. I find it very sad that it's 169 pounds in the UK while being 2199 DKK - That's 240 pounds (!!!) It will probably be even worse in Sweden. And being an exclusive set it probably wont fall in price much at all either. I'm hesitating if I'm gonna buy it.

I think that it looks worse with these pictures. there's too much going on at once IMO, and it looks too cluttered. I'll wait for a review first.
