    Which is your preferred skull & bones emblem?

    I will always go with the classic 1989. Not only because of nostalgia, but because of several reasons. First, as some of you pointed out, it make no sense....the minifigure head is flat only to attach the rest of the head to complete it (that being hair or a hat and so on). Also, like many of you, I had to read about it first in order to understand the logic behind the flat skull head. Makes a great point about it: Second, and this is going to be controversial, I don't like the design of the pirates of the second and third wave. Probably because I'm extremely conservative, but in my opinion they made them too cartoony and campy. It's like they took the first series and made them more child friendly (which I'm sure they did...being a product intended for kids), but for me it was far too different than the original.

    About the Islanders

    First of all I want to say hello to everybody! Very long time reader, but now I decided to make an account. I am sorry if I should have posted this in another topic, but I wasn't sure in which one. Now to the subject...when I was a kid (in the mid 90's) I remember watching on a Lego Catalog and the set Enchanted Island (6278) it was called The Island of Cannibals (Insula Canibalilor in romanian) and since then me and my friends always addressed the islanders as the cannibals. Unfortunately I can't verify this because I don't have and also can't find any of those catalogs (the romanian version). Do you consider the Islanders cannibals? I know that they resemble polynesian tribes.....so it wouldn't be so far fetched. I would like to hear your thoughts on this.
