Thank you for sharing! :pir-classic:

I have upgraded your first post - did you produce the video yourself?

This is a really well made video! So many great pictures, super well edited and narrated! And it sure gave me a trip down memory lane! I'm lucky enough to have some of the old pirate sets from when I was a kid.

LEGO Racers has been an overlooked introduction to the LEGO Pirate themes!

We usually get people saying they became a fan because of sets, whether that be the original sets or one of the more recent waves.

It was surely a classic! I think the LEGO games (Island, Star Wars, etc.) have done a wonderful job at inviting those more familiar with gaming into the hobby. 

I can still remember seeing this level, "Pirate's Skull Pass" and being amazed by the Skull's Eye Schooner in the background:

I'm not familiar with the game myself... I've never played!

Is there much pirate artwork like that in the game?

I noticed in your video there was also a shot of the Imperial Armada over a map background.

I was able to watch the full video yesterday @fbi and it was definitely quite enjoyable! Certainly hit on a very strong nostalgic note. I was quite (pleasantly) surprised to see a number of my photos in the video.

Yes it does! Replaying it really made me in awe of all the little details from the original Pirate line. There's some artwork, sets in the backgrounds of some racetracks, and so on.

Hey thanks @PxChris I was really impressed with your collection, and your collection update posts on these forums inspired a lot for the making of this video. You have a mighty Pirate display :pir-classic:
