While the LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean theme has been discontinued a long time ago, we are getting three special sets related to the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales movie – the fifth and final installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series. The three sets include the #71042 LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Silent Mary, and two LEGO BrickHeadz characters. While the general release will be at the beginning of April, LEGO VIP members can already purchase all three sets at official LEGO stores and the LEGO Disney section of the Online LEGO Shop. So let’s talk about this. 🙂
The #71042 LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Silent Mary is the second largest ship LEGO released to date, however since it is meant to be a ghost ship, it doesn’t have a traditional hull. This makes the ship visually very unusual and spooky, and quite like what you see in the trailer of the film (included below for your reference).
Here is the description of the Silent Mary: Bring the magic of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean to your home with this impressive replica of the Silent Mary ghost ship. This highly detailed LEGO model with over 2,200 pieces features a hinged bow section, opening skeleton hull with decay and destruction detailing, movable rudder, collapsible main mast and two further masts, long bowsprit with crow’s nest and mast, tattered sails, detailed quarterdeck, plus a rowboat with two oars and an array of weapons and accessory elements. This model provides a rewarding build and play experience, and the integrated stand makes it suitable for display in the home or office. Also includes eight minifigures: Captain Jack Sparrow, Henry, Carina, Lieutenant Lesaro, Captain Salazar, Officer Magda, Officer Santos and the Silent Mary Masthead. The Silent Mary with the main mast in vertical position measures over 18” (48cm) high, 26” (68cm) long and 8” (22cm) wide, and over 14” (36cm) wide with the main mast collapsed. 2294 pieces. Price: $199.99 – BUY HERE
We will review the set in more detail once we have a chance to build it, and in the meantime, you can watch the video-review by the BrickVault, which I have added below. The set includes some really interesting building techniques, highly detailed minifigures, and two awesome ghost sharks, so there is a lot to see!
Two other sets related to the Pirates of the Caribbean film that are now available to LEGO VIP members are the #41593 LEGO BrickHeadz Captain Jack Sparrow and the #41594 LEGO BrickHeadz Captain Armando Salazar. Both sets belong to Series 1 of the LEGO BrickHeadz collection, which we have talked about previously (see links at the end of this post). The sets are $9.99 each, and provide a fun building experience in a cute and blocky style. You can find both sets under the LEGO Disney section of the Online LEGO Shop.
The previously released LEGO BrickHeadz sets are already gaining many fans both from the collector and builder community, so I expect that the two LEGO BrickHeadz Pirates of the Caribbean characters will also be popular. And the #71042 LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Silent Mary could easily become the crown jewel of LEGO ship fans, as it opens up new possibilities and techniques for building damaged ships. You can find all three sets under the LEGO Disney section of the Online LEGO Shop.
