Ahoy matey! Check out the Pirates of Barracuda Bay in the latest LEGO Ideas set! Join LEGO Ideas Designer Manager Sam ‘Shipwreck’ Johnson, LEGO Model Designer ‘First Mate’ Milan Madge, and LEGO Graphic Designer Austin ‘Flint Fish’ Carlson as they show you the secrets of Barracuda Bay, originally designed and submitted to LEGO Ideas by LEGO fan Pablo Sanchez! Arghhh!
As we discussed at the beginning of the month, the recently announced #21322 LEGO Ideas Pirates of Barracuda Bay set is now available! This set is a loving homage to classic LEGO Pirates sets and the entire LEGO Pirate fan community. I know many of our readers have ordered it already, but if you are still not sure about it, you can watch the designer-video below to see some of the highlights.
In the second video, Beyond the Brick’s Boone Langston talks with Milan Madge and Austin Carlson in the background while the set is being built. This is a 25-minute long video that would work well playing in the background while building the set.
The third video is a full review and walk-through by the BrickVault, showing you all the details, play-features, minifigs, and comparing the ship to the original Black Seas Barracuda.
As you can see in the reviews, the most unique feature of the set is that the shipwreck can be reconfigured into a fully functioning pirate ship, inspired by the Black Seas Barracuda, one of the most famous LEGO Pirate ships from 1989. The entire set measures over 23” (59cm) high, 25” (64cm) wide and 12” (32cm) deep. There is so much playability crammed in this set that I’m sure it will delight both young and old pirate fans.
As noted in the reviews, the price of the #21322 LEGO Ideas Pirates of Barracuda Bay is excellent as well. Official LEGO stores are currently closed due to the virus, but you can order from the LEGO Ideas section of the Online LEGO Shop.
