    THE PIRATE BAY IS GOING TO BE AN OFFICIAL LEGO SET!!!!

    Meanwhile three weeks later and I get my pick a brick order! so far you can build all the pirates for wayyy less the asking price than auction sites(100 bucks for the whole set on ebay) close to 20 bucks for all on shop lego. Certain parts are sold out for barracuda bay but i have been stocking up on cannons as you can see i got 8 cannons, and of course a miscalculated port and starboard figures hahaha i made a second order!! i just love ordering pirate pieces... Can’t wait for the set to be available though!! https://imgur.com/a/5Uex3kD

    Getting my Pirates layout setup

    Depending on where you live, you can head to a michaels or hobby lobby and buy those 12’ long wallpapers for backgrounds, I did it for my Xmas villages and boy do they make a difference!!! They have different ones of course like starry night, or sunny skies. At night time though with the lights off it sticks out!!! Trust me those backgrounds are a life SAVER!!!
  3. The hull, the sails, the rudder and masts, everything, this is the ultimate creator set IMHO and it shows because I feel it had to sacrifice the hulls for the housing/lodge and stand alone set. I don’t know about you peeps but i have been stocking up on bricks and pieces pirate parts...

    Wish i could buy this, since it’s still sold out in the lego.com and retail stores and with COVID who knows when I’ll be able to, oh well i can patiently wait and I’m not paying scalping prices either 😭😭😭
  5. So will anyone try to swap out the sails for fabric? I want this set, but at the same thing I feel that I will only buy it not as a pirate ship combo but for the pirate lodge/housing, the ship kind of feels off with everything being in brick form but at the same time it feels like a 100% lego brick ship with no pre made parts... huh, I’m split on this one, i feel that with the right mods, it’s possible to tweak this ship something more conform with the brick bounty and the barracuda bay set!!! My goal would be of course the sails, the mast, maybe adding a door and finally the wheel IMHO

    How did you order this set? i have been checking the lego site and still says out of stock, i wonder if stock is allocated by continents! I wouldn't cry about the monkey, heck given the popularity of this set I feel Lego will slip it in eventually to satiate our needs but at the end of the day, I still want one! I cannot lie that I was put off by the back order status and now that it's out of stock it's worse, i'm not worried i'll play the waiting game haha I am in Texas we will see if with the Mall reopening this Friday the Lego Store will follow suit if anything I highly doubt it but I am patient, I understand this pandemic is bigger than all of us! no Worries :/ But seriously i hate online shopping, now with the shipping delays and month and half wait plus taxes now, it's no bueno.....

    Sucks that no stores are open to walk in and snatch one up, but now that it’s sold out, doesn’t help it at all that you can’t buy it anywhere! At first the 30 day back order was a huge turn off but this is worse

    now it’s back ordered for a month, to make matter worse stores are close and since it’s only exclusive there’s no alternative, before i could drive to either my local legoland or lego store but not the case. you’ll get your toy when they can, everything in the toy world has been delayed about a month or a few extra weeks more than anything and not just lego either

    I feel that LEGO ideas has a different type of funding than normal lines and therefore dumping more money into making this set unique, I feel that LEGO took a risk making this set because if they re released the black seas barracuda they would have to produce more sets than just a standalone re issue of a ship, when I first saw this idea set I thought nothing much of it just as a stand alone pirate fortress, but now that we can combine it to make a ship that resembles the barracuda with a lower deck for this price range is a welcome addition. i would had loved for them to expand the 2015 pirates line since they were going the modular route, but for the price range, playability and creativity of this set, the massive throwback of a box design including the pirate labeling in different languages and the back of the box, screams 1989 LEGO box art, something I feel wouldn’t applied if this mainstream imho. At the end of the day, the thought of this set being available in a middle line of franchises for LEGO is a welcome change, never have I been looking forward to purchasing this set day one, but I am just worried about it being back ordered because the stores are closed for the time being.

    Wow, the pirate lines lives! Day 1 purchase for me and I cannot wait! Love the 3-1 function and the Easter eggs, this invokes the old pirates line 100% I love it, the fact that it can turn into a ship, is like finally getting the instructions for the possible sets you could in the back of the old pirate sets boxes!!

    DC Superheroes 2019 - Rumours, Speculation & Discussion

    Whatever happened to the Shazam poly bag?
  13. Exactly what I was thinking, the trailer gave away nothing Since a lot of scenes were not even in the movie
  14. I just wish big figs had more playability than just neutral poses imho
  15. I only buy the sets for the figures, but they could have easily added at least a sakaaran, or anyone else than black widow, or they could had reused more pieces from the helicopter to help a bigger leviathan, but still, amazing set, knowing lego the other figs will be in bricktober packs, like IW. Lololol, they could literally go the cmf route in the future with endgame figs but who knows
