Arghhh me hearties! Explore an epic shipwreck with the new #21322 LEGO Ideas Pirates of Barracuda Bay! Today, the LEGO Group has announced the latest LEGO Ideas set, bringing back memories of the beloved LEGO Pirates theme. Press-release below.
Rekindle nostalgic memories of childhood LEGO construction projects with the #21322 LEGO Ideas Pirates of Barracuda Bay shipwreck island model for display and play. Enjoy some calm, quality time alone building – or share the fun with others. Become a pirate with this brand-new LEGO Ideas set, inspired by the 1989 Black Seas Barracuda pirate ship model. Adventurers can now explore the island and the wreckage of Captain Redbeard’s famous ship, which was lost at sea over 30 years ago.
As you probably know already, LEGO Ideas offers fans the opportunity to submit their own brick creations with the chance to have their concept brought to life with the help of LEGO master designers and a share of the net sales. The new #21322 LEGO Ideas Pirates of Barracuda Bay set has been created based on a submission to the LEGO Ideas platform by fan designer Pablo Sánchez Jiménez, who has a passion for all things pirate and was inspired after building LEGO brick models with his dad when he was young. The concept behind the #21322 LEGO Ideas Pirates of Barracuda Bay set reached the 10,000-supporter milestone in just 25 days – making it one of the quickest sets to hit the target.
With 2,545 pieces in total, the model contains everything a pirate or LEGO fan needs to create the ultimate shipwreck – including a captain’s quarters, food store, kitchen, bedrooms, supply dock, farm, toilet, jail cell, and tavern. LEGO builders can even uncover buried treasure on the island by removing parts of the ship to explore new areas and create new stories.
This set also contains eight minifigures all based on pirate characters from the classic pirate lines, including the iconic Captain Redbeard, Lady Anchor, Robin Loot, and the twins, Port and Starboard, as well as three other pirates, and two skeleton figures, and various animals to discover on the island.
When builders tire of being stranded at sea, the island can also be reassembled to create Captain Redbeard’s legendary ship, the Black Seas Barracuda. Rebuild the ship to launch a rescue mission to take the ship’s crew back to safety and find the buried treasure.
The #21322 LEGO Ideas Pirates of Barracuda Bay set measures over 23” (59cm) high, 25” (64cm) wide and 12” (32cm) deep and is sure to catch the eye whether proudly displayed or placed amongst other LEGO Pirate sets.
Here are a few more pictures of the interior of the ship as well as the structures on the island. LEGO designers did a great job making the island looking pretty good even when the shipwreck is removed.
