One guy in my LUG has his wife begging him to get it. If he's going to be shut in for weeks, he needs a toy to play with.

If anything else fails, I will have to do the same!

I haven't bought a LEGO set in a while, but this one needs to be on my shelf... Really looking forward to the ship portion of the build as well.

I imagine there will be lots of new renditions of the ship sailing the brick seas once we all get it!

I agree. This ship design is sick and is a great starter kit for someone to MOC his own ships. At least we will always have instructions!

Hopefully the set will be around for a while.  I won't be able to buy it right a way.

Mine gave me a Honey-To-Do list.  So far I finished painting the second floor.  :pir_laugh2:

 

I asked for a to-do-list but we don't have much to do really. Blasted dishwasher. If it wasn't for you, I could have volunteered to do the dishes till eternity for that set!!!!!

I'm maintenance considered critical to the continuence of benefits for the company we have 7 hundred some odd employees and all are laid off accept a little over 100 running essential operations ....

Somehow I believe the same will happen to our company as well... There is already a law out that a company can make workers work 50% less for apparently 50% less income. Luckily the marine part of my business which I am involved is faring OK (for now)

Hi guys! I think the original LEGO idea was very nice, but not so much in line with building techniques used in released sets. The redesign is great too, but having a full ship makes it probably the best set since a long time, with a lot of the newest parts and nice minifigs... I also think that my birthday is tooooooo far away! :iamded_lol:

About my IRL situation... my region was quarantined more than a month ago, and probably that confined a lot this damned virus: one of the three main outbreaks has been eliminated and the others are going better. Even more importantly, the disease is mainly confined in a region, with single cases more or less under control in other areas.

For my job it was half a disaster: I’m a biologist and in my lab we had to freeze some of my cell cultures and to throw in the bin the others, meaning weeks of work (and quite a lot of money in expensive reagents) lost. The only positive aspect is a lot of free time to build!

All the best for all of you guys - I hope we all come out of this crisis relatively unscarred. Luckily, it takes only a few bricks, and one will never be bored! :pir_laugh2:

I work in IT, and we can (luckily? :tongue:) all work from home. (As long as the sales side can keep us afloat, that is...) So apart from a little saved transport time, I have gotten no extra build time... :pir-bawling:

Still can't wait for the first of april, though...

That wont deter me from participating in the challenge, though, and I promise I won't let those pesky bluecoats get their way with Terraversa unopposed! :pir-devil:

Exactly..

The ship will be amazing but maybe we should just make capt. Redbeard and the Barracuda Bay/ The BSB a NPC part of the game? That way, we maybe will have a central pirate NPC hideout/café where all of the rumours go through, anyone owning the set (will be eventually almost everyone I reckon) can use it in storylines as well :laugh:

Good luck to anyone in trouble due to the virus. What a mess...I am in food-sales so I can still work luckily.

It would be indeed nice to have a NPC that is as fleshed out as our beloved captain :)

But covid19 seriously strangled our economy

We've been eating my savings since two months, but this one is an instant buy for sure, I missed the black barracuda when I was a boy, I'm not going to repeat the same error 30 years later.

a to-do-list

As to the to-do-list, mine wants a bigger flat and a new car for her own, :wall:,and I agreed:wall:, so she won't say no if I buy a new lego set now, I guess:pir-grin:

Has anybody checked out the early reviews for Pirates of Barracuda Bay set yet? So far it looks like a really well thought out and put together set which is good news after the last pirates line...

Poor guy (although a bigger flat is always handy (for a new and shiny LEGO room) :tongue:

It is definitely a really well thought out set. To be honest somehow deep within me, I knew it was going to double both as a pirate hideout and a ship, so that was not the big surprise. The surprise for me is how well built that ship look like (for a LEGO set that is. That and the price which I was calculating at 250€ - 300€).
