Future Pirates Speculation

We are getting waaay too hopeful around here. I worry we are setting ourselves up for some disappointment. But on the other hand it is looking more plausible by the page. It's hard not to get excited.

Agreed. I really think people are jumping to conclusions with this "leaf" theme. There are no evidence what-so-ever that it has anything to do with Pirates, it's pure speculation.

But if nothing else, we know we'll be getting the Pirate Bay Ideas set - which is a lot more than we've been given for 7 years. So that's exciting.

Personally I am really looking forward to the pirate bay that is it. If some other theme or sets are giving me new animals, pirate or castle related stuff I can use that is great, but until I see prof of that happening I am not getting my hopes up :tongue:
As I have said before nexo knights gave me only 1 minifig I found useful, but if some of the sets had been similar to 7189 Mill Village Raid like the TV show seems to be (from the little I have seen) we had been talking about a very useful theme for me *huh*

I went back and counted, there are 18 set numbers listed for LEAF. If this is an AR theme as expected, then the finalized sets could have been ready for quite some time. The known set numbers might constitute 2-3 waves.

You know, revisiting this possibility, I suppose it is possible to learn of multiple waves at once when you consider that we were expecting ten sets for Hidden Side this year, yet we've only seen six so far (set no. 70427-70432) and are still waiting for the other four (set no. 70433-70436).

Nexo Knights still had a lot of useful parts though, especially for LEGO Space fans, with the trans-neon-orange elements being one of the stand outs.

I would love to see Pirates come back and I do have a bit of info, but it might be nothing...

Recently, I saw they changed the yearly decorations on the Lego House Tree.

The new theme of the tree is now: PIRATES!
The whole tree is covered in some awesome Pirate dioramas, just check it out: 

It's at the 0:25 mark, where they look at the massive tree.

This really makes me hopefull, because they wouldn't just make this and than nothing more right? It's The center-piece of the Lego House!

i'm sorry if someone already posted about this, I didn't have the time to go through 25pages of comments and I'm excited! ;)

Yeah, someone else here did bring it up one page earlier, but it's still worth highlighting again! :classic:

Very interesting what the guy of the LEGO House says at Minute 1:50 after Joshua mentioned that the Pirate Theme is still very popular.

All the builds in the video look like mods of older sets. Some of the buildings look like 10193 Medieval Market Village.

I saw those when I was at the LEGO House back in October. It was pretty amazing seeing all the sets lit up like that. It looked like there were some pirates with unique torso prints and a white tricorn on row boats between the Imperial Flagship and Black Seas Barracuda. (I don't think you can see this part of the display in the video. :( ) I think I see a swimsuit torso from a City set in the video in the Imperial village, so they could have just been using non-Pirate ones I wasn't familiar with.

Unusual prints, and parts in colors not available for sale, do happen in displays made by LEGO employees. These usually come from ideas that were, for one reason or another, not put into production. Remember that there is an image that has been widely circulated of a fully developed LEGO bison (buffalo) that never made it into production.

There appears to be a couple of buildings not based on any previous pirate set on the Imperial Guard branch.

Now wouldn't it be nice if they finally released those harbour buildings we were requesting decade before last...

OH MAN!!! Thanks for that close up!!!

I hope someone can get some high-res shots of those. I can't see enough detail to work out the bricks/ reverse the builds.
