    I like this alot. I would try to make it somewhat modular like the eldorado remake.

    [OFFICIAL] 10320 Eldorado Fortress - Available NOW

    Got through a good few bags with my 5 year old last night. Initial thoughts are that they pumped up the brick count by converting the raise lego base into a bunch of small bricks which was expected and the only way I can really offer a enjoyment comparison to PoBB is by severely modifying it (which I planned to do anyway). Truth be told , Pirates of Barracuda Bay spoiled us and set the bar very high and for the brick count value : money ratio in comparison 10302 is over priced. Not one to complain but considering the hype surrounding this set , Lego dropped the ball hard on this one . They could have easily hired or taken pointers from anyone of the pros on this board to come up with something more modern. The only set left that I would ever buy IF they recreated it is 6079 Dark forest fortress and if Lego is reading this , you better not screw that one up. (check this out if you guys haven't seen it: That being said , my first order of Pick of Brick is here so MOC'ing commences. )
  7. for me it was almost all of the Pirates of the Caribbean sets. I purchased a few new sealed sets in Christmas 2021 (Paid a handsome penny) and every set was "useless" because multiple pieces just broke. The seller from bricklink basically told me this was an ongoing issue with brown bricks. Ironically none of my 1980's pirate sets had broken brown pieces...
  8. Hi Everyone, received my 10320 today (2 of them) and one is destined to be modified . I know this thread is a bit premature considering most people are now just getting deliveries from Lego but I will be show casing my mods in this thread for all to judge / replicate :) If you have any ideas to share please post away!

    to be blunt I think these sort of posts are counter productive. For the brick value , it is worth it alone. I will be MOC'ing it July 4th (assuming I can build it in time).

    Hi Everyone, AFOL and a new member here. Just joined up to comment about this set in the hopes that someone at LEGO is at least reading this for all the masses. Having owned the original 6276 when I was a child this set brings back huge nostalgia for me as did Pirates of Barracuda Bay . That being said , I feel that Lego missed out heavily with 10302. With respect to Pirates of Barracuda bay , were the majority of the sets sold purchased at a Lego store , Lego.com or on sale at Walmart and the like? I would love to see those stats but that is wishful thinking. Lets dive in: PROS of 10302 5 times more pieces The price point is "cheap" in comparison . Having 5 times the pieces with inflation this should be in the $700 range (based on the $60 price tag of 1989) raised base plate is now modular pieces which gets a huge thumbs up kept somewhat with the original theme of the blue coats (white and yellow) Inclusion of the ship pays homage to 6277 CONS of 10302: black dock and crane. 1989 didn't have a lot of brown pieces (unless it was the hull of the ship) so it would have been more fitting to remake these in brown. The trees! Why didn't the use the palm trees from 21322!? The monkey The steering wheel for the ship Lack of creativity with the "foundation" of the buildings. Old forts were never built on flat ground. I would have liked to see more grey pieces at different heights to the bases. IMHO , I would have rather they didn't include the ship and grew the set a little with more pieces but that's where the MOC comes into play , also ,not really a con but more of a statement that will cause some controversy .I am fully aware that females play with Lego and having bought several sets for my nieces I am all about inclusion but lets be realistic with respect to female soldiers in the Imperial army. [yes a simply head change solves this] That being said, I am usually hesitant of posting anything negative against nostalgic recreations because it may hurt those who wish recreations of there favorite sets down the road . i.e. Lego might call us ungrateful or what have you . Like Pirates of Barracuda bay I will be purchasing this on release day like many here and will probably MOC it to my specs .
