  1. How do you define "proper"? If they release a wave of sets intended for retail release, they'll be aimed at the 7-12 year old market. If you want sets which break new frontiers, they'll need to be released as exclusives or through LEGO Ideas.
  2. Let's not get too far ahead of ourselves... even if it does pass review, the LEGO Design Team will completely re-engineer the design and therefore the piece list could change dramatically from the design submitted to LEGO Ideas.

    Now, that's what I meant to comment on before I got caught up being a smart arse... then ended up a dumb arse. The way hull is constructed gives the vessel some character.

    * Former British colonies outside North America. Not sure about the Caribbean Island nations... or Asia... or even South Africa. Hmmm... on retrospect, I didn't think that comment through.

    I was wondering the same thing myself... whatever transpired took place during my absence a few years ago so I cannot provide further information. But getting back on topic, we have another pirate-themed LEGO Ideas submission achieve review - not Armada mind you, but dare I say, Imperial?
  8. 10K LEGO Ideas submission, “Imperial Island Fort” by BrickHammer has qualified for the Second 2021 LEGO Ideas Review. Set a course to the LEGO Pirates Forum and celebrate reaching one step closer to another LEGO Pirates Set... or maybe the first Imperial set released through LEGO Ideas.
  9. UPDATE 6 September 2021 "Imperial Island Fort" has qualified for the Second 2021 LEGO Ideas Review. We're one step closer to another LEGO Pirates set! Be sure to visit the official blog post leave a comment to let the LEGO Group know how brilliant it would be for this submission to pass review. The official announcements reads:

    Someone put an idea into your head about Armada sets being offensive and I was walking you through how to identify such thoughts and free yourself from them.

    Even so, how much time do you have? Many hours could be spent pointing out examples from the past 15 months. Shall we start with those who assumed there was a need to hoard toilet paper? But the even scarier part is, the less scrupulous in positions of power understand people turn assumptions into beliefs, and use this to control their actions.

    The scary thing is most people do this... and not just for future LEGO Pirate releases, but for every aspect of life.

    Or "Soldiers" if you're from the UK and it's former colonies...

    There is no need to be sorry! Having a civil conversation is a good thing as it allows us to explore possibilities. And there is also that possibility you are 100% correct.
