    [MOC] The Crew of the Lemuria

    This is a fine crew indeed! So fine in fact, it should be posted on the Classic Pirates social media at some point in the future.
  2. Now I must be stupid! It didn't even occur to me to re-post this on the Classic-Pirates.com Facebook page because I was too busy making sure it worked in the forum.
  3. Yes, that's the LEGO Group's strategy for profiting on pirates (and other classic themes) without committing to releasing perennial waves of sets.
  4. LEGO Pirates isn't a film franchise so it isn't applicable to "rebooting". The business strategy as of 2015 is to release a new wave of sets approximately every 6-7 years, but whether this is still the case I don't have any confirmation. However, as LEGO Pirate's target demographic is 7-12 year old males, the 6-7 year delay enables the LEGO Group to repeat similar set concepts without the concern of marketing rehashed ideas to the same children. In the past month, the LEGO Ideas Project, "The Pirate Bay" has been approved for production making it the only classic pirate inspired set to confirmed for future release.
  5. You've done well! Let's see if I can embed that into your first post in this topic. UPDATE It works on my end! But I assume being logged into a Facebook account is required.

    HMS Surprise

    Well this is a nice surprise! So we'll post it on the Classic-Pirates.com Social Media too.
  7. Once again Officer_999_j from the Japanese Classic Pirates has submitted some photos via Instagram, this time a ship MOC named the Dauntless.
  8. @legoman666, this is a wonderful collection - thank you for your contribution!

    It would be great if there were some still-photos on this fine creation.

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

    Maybe a third idea as well... While Sword of the Seas has only reached 3.265 votes so far, that's almost a third of the way to the target.

    Yes! It's still there. Via proxy. Not that I'd know.

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

    This topic has already been merged with a similar topic. Since it's an announcement rather than discussion on the MOC itself, it can stay... for now.
  14. LEGO Ideas project "The Pirate Bay" by Bricky_Brick (known as Paokus on Eurobricks) has passed review and will go into production as an official LEGO set! Click here to set sail for the LEGO Pirates Forum to discuss the first ever LEGO Pirates submission to go into production.

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

    Who said there was a lot of demand for LEGO Pirates? In the official announcement video LEGO Ideas Design Manager, Samuel Johnson says: "It's been super exciting for us to see a real LEGO classic on the LEGO Ideas website and we know that there's this huge demand for such products, and you know, classic LEGO you can never go wrong with such a thing" So that's not quite the same as saying there is a lot of demand for LEGO Pirates, rather he seems to be saying there is a demand for classic LEGO. Unless, I've missed who you're referring to.
