Bricks 'N Pieces Magazine scans...

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

Mister Phes has been kind enough to host some more scans I've made of early LEGO Pirate material in my collection. This time we're taking you all the way back to 1989, the first year of the Pirates, with the Summer 1989 issue of Bricks 'N Pieces, the official magazine of the UK LEGO Club. It's pretty cheesy, but very fun. Don't miss:

A short Pirate comic

Hilarious brick-built Pirate accessories

A giant size Forbidden Island

Cool Pirate gear

Stay tuned, because I'll be making more scans the next time I'm at home!

Thanks for posting. These are very nice.

I especially liked the life-size forbidden island and the HMS Victory model.

those were the days.

I still have the shell of my black seas baracuda! They don't make them like they used to.

This was great. I never got the lego magazine when I was little. I just remember when i got the Black Seas Barracuda on Christmas morning. I've never seen it, but that is one of the sets that I kept and still have today. Good memories. :pir-wub:

Does anyone still have these scans? The links are all dead. :(

Here is a link for some of the newer issues of Bicks ‘n Pieces:

In general there are a lot of interesting magazine scans on this webpage:

 As a TF fan and in particular a fan of that character, I love your avatar and username! "Hur hur!" :)

Sadly, I checked that link and that ONE Pirates-themed issue - Summer 1989 - gives a "404 error", file not found. :(

However, to fix it, use this URL and it works! Thanks!

(note: the double space needed before "summer" was the error)
