LEGO Pirates, ahoy!

LEGO has a new Pirates theme for '09, including this largest set, "Brickbeard's Bounty" (6243), reminiscent of the classic "Black Seas Barracuda". New improvements include working, spring-loaded cannons that fire, new sharks that can actually eat minifigs, and a new mermaid minifigure.

  1. Some of the old LEGO Pirates cannons were spring-loaded. I can’t recall if they replaced or were replaced by the lame finger-flick ones though.

  2. Ohh. This will sit well next to my “Black Seas Barracuda”! Now if my wife will not kill me for buying more LEGO’s 😀

  3. Between Lego Pirates and the earlier Lego Space sets, I think you can pretty much account for 75% of my childhood free time.

  4. Wait a minute? Spring loaded cannons existed up until some point (around 1990?) and then they switched to non-firing cans. But you can flick the non-firing cans to fire them?

  5. I last got a LEGO Pirates set around… 1987? When I was 6.

    Sharks that can devour minifigs warrants an upgrade, me thinks. Plus, I can have two ships to wage (fun and humane) war with the cats.
