Lego Pirates Of Barracuda Bay (21322) Set

Lego has surprised their Pirates fans by announcing a new set. The Pirates of Barracuda Bay (21322) is the newest Lego Ideas release. It looks like the famous Black Seas Barracuda has been shipwrecked. But, the crew are making the best of it and turned the remains into a pirate island. With 2545 pieces, and 8 Minifigures. Lego has priced the set at $199.99/€199.99 with an April 1st release.

This set has the greatest play feature Lego has ever released. The pirates can work together, fix up the wrecked Barracuda and take to the seas. All three sections can be removed from the island, and combined into a full remake of the Black Seas Barracuda. You could say the sandy island is a really fancy display stand.

The new ship has a lot in common with the original 1989 release. It is a remake but with a lot of details updated to more modern Lego building techniques. Some of those new details include a completely reworked bow and stern, a fully furnished interior, and a new curvier hull. The new Black Seas Barracuda is instantly recognizable, and yet almost completely new.

Lego has revealed an updated new backstory for this set. Inhabiting this island is Captain Redbeard, Lady Anchor, Robin Loot, Tattooga, Pirate Twins Port and Starboard, Quartermaster Riggings, and Jack “Dark Shark” Doubloons. Also included are two prisoners, who have long since expired (skeletons). There is even a secret buried treasure that can be discovered.

Classic Space Pirates Are Plundering The Moon

Lego Classic Space Pirates On The Moon

“ARRRR! The Space Pirates are here to plunder yer moon treasures.”

This Classic Space Pirates Lego MOC is a creation by captainsmog. Built as an entry into the MOC Wars 2020, category 23, Thar Be Pirates. The goal is to take any of the Lego themes and add pirates. The scene features an innocent Spaceman being hunted down by a small group of space pirates. The star of the build is the space ship. (Or is it a land space ship?) The six wheel vessel is manned by the four meanest pirates this side of Luna. Being lead into battle by a mean skeleton spaceman figurehead. The classic blue and yellow design is a perfect fit and makes everything feel old. Perfect for a pirate theme. What kind of treasure could they be hunting for? Maybe the are on a quest for the fabled moon cheese.

Sail The Lego Seas In The Little Victory Ship

Nick Barrett's Lego Ship Little Victory Sails

Most Lego ships are either huge or very tiny. It is rare to see something in between. This Lego MOC titled The Little Victory is a perfect example of doing something creative in Lego. This ship is the creation of Nick Barrett, who also created the massive HMS Victory (here). The HMS was Minifigure scale, which translated to a ship made out of thousands and thousands of Lego bricks. This mini version is a faithful recreation. It features three gun decks, three masts, brick built sails, and custom rigging.  This ship is impressive, and only little in scale.

Lego Ideas Third 2014 Review (#013) Revealed

Lego Ideas 2014 Review

The latest Lego Ideas Review (Third 2014, #013) has been officially revealed. The next Ideas set will be the Marble Maze. This set will feature a fully working marble labyrinth. The kind with two knobs, marbles, and pitfalls all wrapped up in a wooden box (in this case a Lego box). However the final model will be designed, it will be featuring a good amount of technic building, which Lego Ideas hasn’t used too much.

The other proposed sets that didn’t make the cut in this review included the Avengers Helicarrier, The Goonies Inferno Pirate Ship, The Natural History Museum, The Lord of the Rings Minas Tirith, Jurassic Park Gate, a Piano, and the Flying Dutchman. No reasons for the denial were given. Lego did leave us with a little surprise, saying that they were still considering the F7A Hornet from the video game Star Citizen. Check out the full video below.

Captain Cook’s Galleon

PippoZane's Lego Captain Cooks Galleon

Pirate ships are one of those classic Lego themes. Lego has had a tough time creating a good mini Pirate ship (3 hull pieces or less). It is a tough scale to work in and usually the proportions end up weird. Here Pippo Zane has succeeded in creating Captain Cook’s Galleon. Using a brown, gold, and red color scheme works well. With careful attention to detail with the main Cabin, Poop deck, and Forecastle. The red carpet and curtains into the main Cabin are an especially nice touch.
