This year, maybe even as early as February 1st, Lego will be releasing a brand new Pirates theme. It will consist of 5 sets including a brand new pirate ship. Considering it will be a few more years til the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie is out, this will hold over the Lego Pirate fans until then. Here are images of the 5 upcoming sets.
Shipwreck Defense – 84 pieces
Soldiers Outpost – 164 pieces
Treasure Island – 181 pieces
Soldiers Fort – 234 pieces
The Brick Bounty – 745 pieces
I like how Lego is starting to incorporate more minfigure quality. I mean how they have the newer style hairpiece and new printings on torsos and pants. My personal favorite of the 5 is the Soldiers Fort set. I love the way the female soldier and the admiral figs look. Not to mention that awsome flag. 🙂
No official release date has been set, but I expect them to be hitting shelves within the next few months.
