Piranha

Your First Pirate Set!

Recommended Posts

Mine was the Black Seas Barracuda oh so many years ago. It was my first and only Pirate set. Now I'm considering getting back into this theme.

Can't remember the name but it was the golden age of those 4.99 lego sets with the pirate and the treasure, that's all they could buy me until christmas of 94 they got me the Black seas barracuda.  haven't kept up with pirates until the line last year, I practically have two of each set but the ship itself.

It's likely to be 6235 Buried Treasure?

Yes that one!!! Sets were simpler and cheaper back then!

Lego always did great ranges of small, medium and big sets so you could build collections up. I loved the small sets as a kid as I could get one a week with my pocket money.

Here's the beaut that hooked me on Pirates forever, 6235 Buried Treasure :pir-wub::

I know this set is tiny, but there's just so much goodness going on. For a little kid who loved pirate related things (I had actually just read Treasure Island at about this time :pir-blush:), this set was so great. Just the lone pirate and his monkey pal tending after their treasure hoard. And eight gold coins?

Same set and pretty much the same reason for me!

Something about it just sparked my imagination...  so simple, yet so so perfect because the set still has enough components to construct a multitude of a backstories as to how Bo'Sun Will came to be on that desert island with the treasure.  Was he digging up it or?  Or was he burying it?

My first ever Pirates set was this innocent, very well barrel-equipped 6261 Raft Raiders! I put emphasis on the barrels, because surely back then must have started my barrels obsession, nowadays whenever I do a bricklink order, I always check out the store if they have any and make sure to add some to my order :pir-cry_happy:

My first sets were Buried treasure, Harbor sentry, and the figure pack (6251).

Back in the days I think I liked the Harbor sentry the most, since it was the cheapest way to get a cannon.
