Lego 60th Anniversary Rumoured Pirate set predictions

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

It seems Lego may be producing five 60th Anniversary Lego sets next year including one each in the Town, Castle, Space and Pirate themes.

If these were all UCS that would be great. I would suspect Lego will produce a Pirate ship as these seem to come out on a regular basis so must sell ok. I think a UCS generic pirate ship would be great, as they've never down that before. A pirate town or islander "island" might also be possibilities but I think the ship would be more likely.

Of course, we could just get a remaster of a past system set which would be a little disappointing.

EDIT: I just looked at the leaked retailer's catalogue for 2018 and the 60th Anniversary sets come in a variety of box sizes (no pictures of the sets yet) from quite large down to small, so no chance they're UCS sets. The largest size could be a pirate ship I guess (or a castle).

I'm pretty sure it's the 30th anniversary of Pirates in 2019. :look:

They could do a BSB. :pir-classic:
...again. :look:

Isn't next year the 60th anniversary of Lego, and they will release a couple celebration sets (castle, pirates, town, space etc)?

Hey, that would hopefully mean they make a proper sternpiece for prefabs...

I would just love a Pirate set of any shape or size. Original, re-released, or re-imagined, I'll buy it, whatever it might be. :laugh:

I do think we might be jumping the gun here, though. I've seen the 60th anniversary sets hinted at and mentioned in various places, and it's great that we have confirmation on them now. But everything I've seen indicates that the idea that they're based on classic LEGO themes at all is pure speculation, and any potential Pirate sets are speculation on that speculation. They could also be brick boxes or sets featuring LEGO stores and factories, or brick versions of old wooden LEGO toys, or new versions of the LEGO sets from 60 years ago. We just don't know. (Someone please correct me if I'm wrong--I'd love to be, but I don't think I am.)

(And yes, this is coming from someone who wildly speculates about Pirates in 2019 based on the 30th anniversary--but partially in the hope that keeping the idea alive could help result in plans being made if they aren't already. :blush: Whatever these 60th anniversary sets are, they've probably been decided on and designed already.)

I hope for a modern 2000++ bricks set based on eldorado fortress, maybe something like a fortified town with some civilians and animals :wub:

Probably won't be next year, but maybe in 2019 :grin:
