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! 🙂
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.
