The new Winter Village fire station has some great black torsos on the firefighters

I didn't even realize it until much later, but those torso designs are a really great homage to some of Lego's first firefighter minifigures. :thumbup:

Indeed, I've used them before but these new ones would look great for Prussian troops.

Yeah i got that in mind, especialy when they come in 2 pieces. Now we need some kind of drum that can attach to minifig.

No One mentioned it before here, but Nearly Headless Jack is an awesome minifig for pirate fans! That torso is amazingly beautiful.

Heh, a "flagship" carnival set coming this summer to the Friends theme apparently has some new White and Bright Reddish Violet striped "tattered ship sail" cloth elements! :laugh:

Yep! The amusement park ride that features them definitely seems to draw on “Pirates of the Caribbean” type boat rides.

On a similar note, the big LEGO Friends subtheme focuses on ocean animal rescues. A lot of the sets have great parts for coastal scenes, like:

• Queen Watevra’s crown recolored in White as a broken eggshell

• An accessory pack featuring a small octopus, starfish, tropical fish, seahorse, and three types of seashell in Vibrant Coral

• A new coral piece in what appears to be Dark Azur

• A baby dolphin that has minifig-style black bead eyes rather than minidoll-style anime eyes (same as other small animals in Friends sets like the baby bunny, hamster, and the bird from this year’s Disney range).

As far as other themes are concerned, I forget if I brought up Nya’s new spinner from the Ninjago Spinjitzu sets in this thread previously. Could be a fun whirlpool or waterspout and has plenty of connection points. There will be even more color combinations of these tornado style spinners in the summer.

Found this by accident. And personally I wouldn't do it, but this Minecraft bow could make a well sized anchor. 

Brilliant idea!

Always had the idea of using this part from the 6541 Intercoastal Seaport as railings. Maybe one day I will more or less accidentally build a ship with the right size and colour.

I would like to nominate the dolphin from the upcoming 41380 Lighthouse with Floodlight because he is a very friendly dolphin and when a pirate falls overboard, he can come to the rescue!

He can also put on a show to keep everyone happy!

If it's any help, there's a newer version of that part that comes in Sand Yellow (dark tan)!

If you don't mind the LEGO Friends style eyes, the Friends dolphin mold has previously appeared in Sand Blue with a different face print (no eyelashes): https://brickset.com/parts/6035448/dolphin-with-hole-ø-1-5-dec-no-2

Other LEGO Friends animals that could be suited to a nautical or island setting include:

The summer Friends sets will also introduce baby dolphins and baby sea turtles! Like other smaller Friends creatures such as hamsters, they have more typical minifig-style black bead eyes, as opposed to more detailed minidoll-style eyes with whites and colored irises.

I think a few parts from the late 2019 sets look interesting as details for a Pirate setting :
- The coral/turquoise parrot from City - https://brickset.com/parts/6267152/bird-no-1
- The map from Jurassic World (for those who don't mind the obvious 'Isla Nublar' marking) - https://brickset.com/parts/6267015/flat-tile-2x2-no-395
- The golden lantern (for fancy ships!) - https://brickset.com/parts/6283475/lamp-no-1
- The golden egg - https://brickset.com/parts/6264068/egg-no-3
- The new tan envelope with red wax seal - https://brickset.com/parts/6284163/flat-tile-1x2-no-271

And also for minifigs :
- The new Sirius Black (fleshie) - https://brickset.com/minifigs/hp174/sirius-black-printed-legs

- Barney Rubble's legs (fleshie) and, arguably, the other Flintstone's legs - https://brickset.com/parts/6265480/mini-lower-part-no-1713
- The Executioner's torso (fleshie) - https://brickset.com/parts/6265651/mini-upper-part-no-4718
- The Klatooinian raiders' torsos and legs - https://brickset.com/parts/6279009/mini-upper-part-no-4870  https://brickset.com/parts/6279014/mini-upper-part-no-4871  https://brickset.com/parts/6279010/mini-lower-part-no-1784
- Not from 2019, but Professor's Trelawney hair and bandana could look nice on a Pirate Lady - https://brickset.com/parts/6236399/mini-wig-w-hat-no-9
And, of course, plenty of parts for a ghost ship crew in the Hidden Side sets (ex. https://brickset.com/parts/6273231/mini-beard-no-4 or https://brickset.com/parts/6271843/mini-armour-no-19)
