LEGO Pirates website updates & more!

in Other LEGO Themes

A few days ago LEGO updated the website of the soon-to-launch LEGO Pirates line. This is very exciting for LEGO Pirates fans as the theme was temporarily put on hold and replaced with the LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean line. However now that LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean has been discontinued, LEGO Pirates are coming back! 🙂

2015 LEGO Pirates Map

One of the interesting features added on the LEGO Pirates website is a short bio on all of the characters. There are ten minifigures listed on the side of the Bluecoats and ten on the side of the Pirates. Although many of them are just generic soldiers and pirates, some of the bios does reveal some interesting details. For example that the Bluecoats are governed by Governor Hacienda, who’s daughter secretly dreams of becoming a pirate. And that one of the Bluecoat Sergeants is a former pirate. On the other side we got Captain Redbeard, the toughest of the pirates, who plundered more forts and sailed for more years than he has teeth in his mouth. Which of course doesn’t say much, but you get the point. And than there is also the Pirate Princess, with an eye-patch. Will she make friends with the tomboyish daughter of the Governor, or will they be jealous rivals? 🙄

Then there is also detailed description of each of the upcoming 2015 LEGO Pirates sets. One of the nice features of the sets is that they can be combined for larger layouts.

I really like that most of these seem to be within the $20-$40 range. Not sure exactly who the badguys are supposed to be here, but the concept never gets old. It’s a smart marketing move to have bios on the characters, it gives the sets more of an appeal to kids. I also love the sets with the soldiers outposts, hopefully there will be a big castle type fort in the future with the same color scheme. I might get one of these sets just for a blue coat soldier or two, a battle pack with four would be awesome. I’m already trying to juggle the expenses of Bionicle and Star Wars though…(did anybody else hear about the new final duel set? 😀 )

Yeah, Pirates are always awesome! A large set would be amazing! As far as the Final Duel, everything I read about it so far make it sound really interesting. Hopefully we will get pictures soon! 😀

I’m waiting for pictures too, I really want to see if they redid Luke’s torso.

ooh! Final duel! Can you post it on here or put out a link anyone? Thanks! I’m a “die hard” (LEGO) star wars fan! Also the Ninjago sets will be coming out soon, right?

There are no pictures yet. Only description. The point is that this is a big set. 😉

Strider January 23, 2015 at 9:50 PM

Ninja, I think it’s supposed to be a summer set. I remember the description saying it was $70, with the Emperor, Darth Vader, (a pic of Darth with a new mask mold has been spotted on Lego.com,) Luke, and two royal guards.

I’m making it a goal to get every one of these in 2015. 1st on the list are Shipwreck Defense and Treasure Island. I love that these can be combined and I’m actually doing an add on of the bridge and rock structure from the Spongebob Flying Dutchman set to these two.

A back round story of Metalbeard ( before he be came Metalbeard.) or put metalbeard in the pirate theme.

That would be fun! Good idea! 😀

I’m excited about these, particularly the pirate ship. My tax return will help in acquiring them. =D

Yay, for the taxman! 🙄

Great! now all they need to do is make a western theme. That would be so SWEET!!! I’d buy sets from it faster than you could say there on the shelves! Speaking of which, incase no one knows about this. LEGO usually updates there website every Tuesday. It seems to me the third week in a month is when they have the exciting updates.

Reply

Kim January 23, 2015 at 1:37 PM

I’d love them to remake the western theme again. I always wanted that one but it came out around a time when my parents weren’t buying me Lego and I was a teenager and wasn’t playing with them anymore.

Do we know the exact prices yet?

Reply

admin January 23, 2015 at 4:54 PM

All I know is that the ship is $89.99. Prices for the other ones haven’t been revealed yet, but you can use that as a guide. 🙂

For the US, no. But I heard some accurate guesses a while back:
Shipwreck Defense: $10-15; Soldiers’ Outpost: $20; Treasure Island: $20; Soldiers’ Fort: $25-40; Brick Bounty: $90.
The Brick Bounty sounds overpriced, at only 745 pieces. And I doubt the Fort will be $40. Hope that helps. 🙂

Definatley looking forward to this pirate ship,

I had one when I was a child and it got lost and destroyed throughout the years, so this is definatley a must have for me

Reply

BLProductions January 23, 2015 at 6:24 PM

Some of these look interesting, but with the size of these, I don’t think I’ll get any. Unless the Soldier’s Fort is under $30, which I doubt it will be. These will be coming out in the US in April, right? Funny how the set inventories are out, so people can order replacement parts, when the sets haven’t been released anywhere. 😐
Also, there are two Scooby Doo set images, and most of the Marvel Super Heroes Age of Ultron images on Brickset. They look like some of the better licensed themes this year. 😕 And CMF Series 14 looks interesting, I just hope no one gets scared looking at them…. 😉

I like the Scooby Doo sets. I think I will put together a post about them for next week so we can talk about them in more detail. Also a couple of the Age of Ultron sets are really nice. We will talk about those on Monday, I think. I’m not sure about that CMF 14. Looks awfully scary. I didn’t like any of the figures, just some parts, like the zombie cheerleader’s hair.

So awesome…

These sets look really cool! MY grandparents used to have a giant bucket full of my uncle’s old LEGO sets. I remember building some of those old Pirate sets 🙂 Good memories 😛

The stupid thing I find here is that there are absolutely no water-plates for water!

Yeah, good point…

Håkan January 24, 2015 at 8:14 PM

But there were barely any baseplates in new sets,anyway?

Reply

admin January 25, 2015 at 10:48 AM

I was referring to not being able to do a proper water set-up any more, which is particularly ironic when LEGO Pirates is being brought back. This is a huge problem for LEGO conventions! There is a big discussion about it at the LEGO Ambassador Forum.

Really these are all redo’s of the old line. If you look closely they are very similar save the new color code.
