  1. I guess majority of Pirate fans can agree on that Black Seas Barracuda and Skulls Eye Schooner are the best ships lego has ever come up with. Red Beard Runner released in 1996 was a big disappointment for many and it's not nearly as admired set as older ships. I guess when you make something legendary as BSB or SES it's going to be really hard to beat them with the new stuff. For me, it's hard to believe they ever will do that. I think it would demand them to go back to pretty simple and traditional look they once had. But going back in time is something lego probably won't do. But we need more great pirate ship from Lego don't we? There's no doubt one couldnt build ship good as these old ones were, afterall all the MOCs here are good prove of that. But will Lego ever gonna release a big ship that could in time even pass old ships in popularity? Will they ever gonna release a ship that you think will be better than BSB or SES? PS. Maybe a mod could add a vote for this topic ;) Edited by CGH: Poll added and title fixed.

    Governor By Me Onesies

    Very creative and one of the best moc I've ever seen. But the thing that the lifeboat isnt wreck at all is not good. That simple detail makes it look like it's above the water

    Oceans on End #1 - The Island

    Good animation but voice acting could be better. Speaking is way too monotonic

    No Pirates in 2009 LEGO lineup?

    No we won't. This is what forums are for. To speculate, talk and make wild guesses what the future will be like. And this exactly the place where we all can share our thoughts

    No Pirates in 2009 LEGO lineup?

    I hope they withdrawn the current line and create a new. Maybe we could then see a bit better ship

    Black Seas Barracuda vs Skull's Eye Schooner

    Well said mate! Now where are the SES defenders? We need some opposition or the SES will sink soon!

    LEGO Pirates Movie

    I usually don't like watching Lego stop motion movies, but this is an exception! What makes this so great are the voices. It's sounds a bit like Mr. Bean :) Music works really well with the scenes. Good Job and please make more with the same greeat voice acting

    New 2009 Pirates Sets - NEW closeups of the wench & mermaid added

    Its great they finally did this! Altough I can't help feeling a bit disappointed about the new designs It looks like they are made for young kids. But still, that new ship is better than Red Beard Runner. Not bad opening lego, not bad Is that ship only we get, or will there be pics from the bigger one soon?

    Will there ever be a newer better ship than the BSB or SES?

    When I was a child Pirates were in theyre golden age. So as I grew in that time it's feels really strange that they are currently not in production. I always thought Pirates are something like the Lego's city sets, they would exist all the time!! I agree seeing ships of RBR quality would be a nice suprise! What's wrong with the kids nowdays? I thought Pirates- theme would be everlasting

    Primage Rock Lighthouse

    Nice! But I think the glass top of that lighthouse looks kind of too modern

    Buy ships for your MIGHTY fleet

    One really annoying thing about purchasing legos from ebay is that even though seller says all pieces are included it hardly never is true. I could bet 100$ that there's at least a few missing pieces in RBR altough seller says it has all. Recently I bough two BSBs from ebay and there were pretty much missing pieces in both cases. But all ended well, I asked and got discount because of that When ordinary (non legofans) sell legos it's almost a rule that something is missing, but what can you expect when there are hundred and hundred of pieces

    MOCs which YOU can BUY - Check these out!

    You can buy my 1989 BSB and just change the flags and there you got one ship. I've got two and don't need the 1989 version

    Buy ships for your MIGHTY fleet

    Yes I've been thinking about it but I heard ebay takes something like 7.5% from the winning bid as reward and that's way too much in my opinion

    Buy ships for your MIGHTY fleet

    This seems to be suitable thread for to offer BSB for someone in the forum. Some time ago, I scored incomplete 1989 Black Seas Barracuda on ebay. I bought some spares and made it almost complete. Missing pieces are: -1x 4088 yellow -two figures (captain and the lady are included) -one big jolly roger flag (43p01) - a couple of coins Pieces & sails are in good condition, it seems this hasnt been used much at all. No original box left, but instuctions included. I also bought Legend BSB some time ago so I decided I'm gonna sell this one and keep the legend for myself. I live in Finland. The price Im asking is 110 euros. If somebody on the forum is intrested in buying please PM me Here are a couple of pics:

    PICTORIAL REVIEW: 6260 Shipwreck Island

    I remember I got this set when I was really young. Back then, I like it very much, altough I was disappointed how small it is (as I always wanted the most biggest sets). But still this is great memory from my childhood Now as an adult it ofcourse seems even more smaller. I think that treasure chest is way too near the water,not really realistic. And that flag above the cannoon is placed way too high. It makes me wonder, should I rate sets as with eyes of an adult or child... This time, I'll go with the latter. 5 Stars

    Tall ship websites with photos for research

    I've been trying to find pics from inside pirate ships cabinets but so far no luck :( Does somebody here got any?

    Schooner Geisha

    3 Cannos in a row are looking really nice! It's nice to see someone made a cabinet for a ship as small as this. But maybe if the corners of that cabinet would be more roundish it wouldn't look so oversized Anyway, nice job!

    PICTORIAL REVIEW: 6285 Black Seas Barracuda

    I'm still wonderning what are those small booths about ?`(you know which have red windows as a doors) I've read in some reviews that they're cabinet's for the crew, but I see them more like warehouses/deposits for the guns and cannon ammunation. Somebody please let me know what lego intended them to be?

    PICTORIAL REVIEW: 6274 Caribbean Clipper

    Maybe this ship was a bit too small and short to have a big cabinet like in BSB. It could look a bit silly.. On the other hand, putting a small and low-height cabinet there wouldnt look good either cause the backbase-part in this ship is as big as in BSB What do you think guys, could this ship has cabinet and still look realistic?
