The future direction of the Pirate LEGO Forum in LEGO Pirates Posted November 26, 2006 Yes you should, get investing right away!If the Imperial Guards were modernized then their uniforms would be different and that would create an inconstancy. They'd be like black sheep for those who already have large Imperial armies. Or just be special elite troops, or if they were new and more available troops, the old redcoats would be a special division of the army. That is the best thing about Pirate Lego - unlike some other themes, it is okay to mix alot of different designs because soldiers in that era were highly decorated. I do not have a massive Red Coat army (I have much more Bluecoats) and even if I did I would appreciate an update! It is unrealistic Lego will bring back a good Pirate line. It is even more realistic they will bring back the old one - with the minifig designs untouched. I wouldn't mind either way, but it is more unlikely! Modernized Imperials? Pirates? You mean modernized as of today? No, Modernized lego-style. As in... more vibrant and detailed minifig torso/head design. Maybe in the Admirals we could even get special Leg pieces (with decorations down the side or something).
