Ohhh Raymond, you joker! Bloody thing's costing me a small fortune atm actually. Kinda tempting to swap with you!
Did I miss the detailed announcement on this new ideas pirates set due 01 April? Pirate Ship + Island and the pirate ship separates to create a massive island play set.
There hasn't been an ideas email go out about it yet, which is odd as it's all over the fan pages. I suspect it's to stop people complaining they can't pre order with thendouble points. As I asked but they informed me they don't do preorders. Which was a lie as the new Star Wars helmets allow it...
It does look very nice though, I just ordered the ISS and Dinosaur Bones. So this will be the next purchase
The new pirate set is brilliant. If a tad expensive really.
It costs £150-180 for a new brick bounty now (2014 ish) release and £250-£500 for the original barracuda 6285 set. This seems pretty reasonable and no doubt once the main stores like JL get it we will see 10-20% unless it is wholly exclusive indefinitely.
I'm buying at launch hopefully.
Here is one of my original catalogue pages on pirates to build some hype. Those lego dioramas....
