Well, it depends on the price and In what condition the set is. Is it complete? Etc . I got mine for 150 wich I consider an amazing bargain, I paid total of 530 euros for CC, RBR and SES. All in like new condition. The thing that surprised me the most was how big it actually was! And it came whit 4 minifigs that looked like they were made today! So in this case, I feel like I hit the jackpot. Definitely worth buying IMO.

The question where to buy pirate sets is still very important for LEGO fans. It becomes more difficult every year. But sometimes modern sets of other series have lots of pirates accessories which we can use. For example a big brick figure of Metal Beard from LEGO movie or Sky Shark from ninjago.

Nice! Do I spot a trains torso in one of those pirates? I guess the train industry didn't turn out to well for him. :tongue:

I finally have a big enough LEGO budget to get in to pirates, but I'm faced with a dillema. I want to get both the skull's eye schooner and the black seas barracuda, but it'll be a couple of weeks after I buy one until I'm able to buy another. I'm a bit worried that if I buy one the other won't be available at a reasonable price when I'm able to order it. So if the worst case scenario turns true, what should I buy first? The skull's eye schooner or the black seas barracuda? Is one generally more valuable than the other? The bsb is $190 U.S. while the ses is $220, aparrently only missing the instructions and the lanterns in the back.

While I'm not super hardcore about the official sets (I prefer to build mine from scratch) I would recommend grabbing the Skull's Eye Schooner first, since it was only released once while the Black Seas Barracuda got re-released at some point.

Really the only pirates set I want is the Skull's Eye Schooner since its an amazing set. But I have never been able to find a good price for it. The cheapest I have seen was like 170$ CAD which was sold in like 5 min.

It depends what you like. I would not givea cent to one of the most unrealistic and ugliest ships ever made what are the Skulls Eye Schooner and Red Beards Runner; along with the Crossbone Clipper topping the ugly scale of him realistic colour schemes and very ugly design elements I would never take a second and always would go for one of the most beautiful ships ever, the Black Seas Barracuda. That's my point and my opinion.

If you can grab more money the Big Imperial Flagship is the best one you can buy but also the most expensive one. 

I know a lo of lego fans like that SES so it depends on what you like. But don't worry you will always find both at eBay
