The Black Seas Barracuda is perhaps the most famous Lego pirate ship to sail the brick seas. There is the original 1989 version, the 2002 re-release, and a mini version in 2018, and the ship wrecked version in 2020. Thats a lot of plunder. If you ever wondered if the ship could be even bigger and more detailed that would probably be this version. This Black Seas Barracuda is a “UCS Flagship” inspired Lego MOC created by Brick Ninja.
This version of the Black Seas Barracuda has a lot more room for an extra mast, and set of sails. Even the flags are have been updated. It is loaded with 28 cannons, which means this galleon can go up against even the best equipped Imperial ships. Even the row boat is brick built. This ship is bigger in every dimension. The whole ships is a bit wider. There are two levels below deck and even a larger captains cabin. The whole build also contains a lot less Lego studs exposed to the elements.
The Barracuda also comes with an elaborate display. A raised up base, showing the ocean waves, and the deadly sea life beneath. The waves in particular are extremely well done. There is also an option to display the ship firing cannons. The Lego explosions looks great, with smoke and fire propelling the cannon ball away from the ship. Even the Lego waves are reacting to the cannon fire.
