LEGO pirate ship The Brick Bounty coming

in Other LEGO Themes

There was an interesting LEGO contest last month over at, the social bookmarking platform run directly by LEGO for older teen and adult LEGO fans. The contest was about naming the next LEGO pirate ship that is scheduled for release early next year. LEGO Pirates fans are of course really excited about this! ๐Ÿ™‚

LEGO Pirate Ship Brick Bounty

The winner of the contest was announced on May 1st (see original announcement here): “After much consideration by our panel of judges, the winning name of the โ€˜Name the Shipโ€™ contest has been selected. The jury found that there were a very high number of strong suggestions and it was truly difficult to select a winner. The criteria on which the winning name was selected, was:

  • In line with the values and identity of the LEGO brand.
  • Solid ties to the heritage of classic LEGO Pirate ships.
  • Appealing across genders, age and languages

And the winning name isโ€ฆ.. The Brick Bounty

Please congratulate legobuffproductions. He will receive a signed version of the undisclosed pirate set when it comes out in 2015. And obviously the chance to have their name suggestion be the name of the actual LEGO pirate shipโ€ฆ We cannot make any promises, but weโ€™ve been told that the designers REALLY like the name. So fingers crossed!”

The fact that a new LEGO pirate ship is coming out is very exciting. I’m a little surprised about the chosen name though; it is basically just a shorter version of the #6243 LEGO Brickbeard’s Bounty, the LEGO pirate ship released back in 2009. That was oneย nice ship, but I’m not sure why LEGO designers picked such a similar name. Anyhow LEGO usually does an awesome job on pirate ships, so let’s hope this ship will live up to its predecassors. Will there be other LEGO Pirates themed sets along with the ship? I guess we will have to wait to find that out. ๐Ÿ™„

What do you think? How do you like the idea of LEGO Pirates coming back? And what do you think of the name? What name would you have given to a LEGO pirate ship? Do you think there will be other LEGO Pirates sets next year? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! ๐Ÿ˜‰

First Comment! I want this!

I probably won’t buy this when it comes out, as I already have Metalbeard’s Sea Cow, but I am hoping for an actual pirates line. Now that I would want! ๐Ÿ˜€

I hope it means the return of the Pirates line.

Sounds like the Destiny’s Bounty from Ninjago. I hope they bring it back!

I’m very much looking forward to this set, and I too hope that there will be a whole new line of pirates – sets coming along with this one!

there finally making another pirate theme! yippee! today I got my Darth Revan minifig! it’s so AWESOME!

I’d love Pirate to come back. I really enjoyed it back in the day. I never had a ship, my brother had one of the “good guys” ships but we never had any opposing ship and it would be a good addition to the pirate sets my brother and I already have. Plus, coming out in 2005 gives me time to find a place to have a pirate set up. =D

I’m not a Pirates fan, but this looks cool. A yellow box with two masts and canons, and one sail. Awesome! ๐Ÿ˜† I might get it, except I have MetalBeard’s Sea Cow, and that took up all my extra space. ๐Ÿ™

LOL! :mrgreen:

BLProductions May 9, 2014 at 12:59 PM

Does that mean you got the Republic Gunship? ๐Ÿ˜

Tom May 9, 2014 at 1:22 PM

If I had a proper lego room I’d get all the ships and do a full diaplay. Sadly I dont have the room so much like minifig size trains they are a no no for me ๐Ÿ™

Having said the above I’m after a queen Anne’s revenge at the moment

I really want that!!! xD

CaptainChespin May 9, 2014 at 1:45 PM

Ooh, those things are getting expensive now. O_o I already have one though. ๐Ÿ˜›

CaptainChespin May 9, 2014 at 1:46 PM

Same here! (LEGO better know we want one… :P)

In the moment I’m more into castle but I like pirates too. I may join a pirate roleplay game. (In the moment I just build medieval and I would really like to build a bit pirate stuff)

Tom May 9, 2014 at 3:03 PM

They are indeed getting expensive. It does look awesome though – good work on having one! I’m looking for a partial one on ebay as I probably have 70ish % of the parts…

NRG Cole May 9, 2014 at 4:24 PM

Technically, it doesn’y have any cannons, just cannon balls. ๐Ÿ˜€

BLProductions May 9, 2014 at 4:34 PM

Well, I thought the holes on the sides were cannons… ๐Ÿ˜€

LOL! You guys make me fall off my chair! It’s all your fault if I break a leg! ๐Ÿ˜€

CaptainChespin May 9, 2014 at 11:24 PM

They are really cool. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hope you can get your hands on one somehow! ๐Ÿ˜€

CaptainChespin May 9, 2014 at 11:42 PM

@Admin: I may or may not have modified this and used it on the LEGO Message Boards. ๐Ÿ˜›
