Classic LEGO Pirates Are Back With The LEGO Ideas Pirate Bay

The First 2019 LEGO Ideas Review Results are on a roll. After the announcement of the now approved LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street and LEGO Ideas Playable Piano, it looks like LEGO fans are on to a nostalgic pirate trip in this next approved 10K project, the LEGO Ideas Pirate Bay.

LEGO Ideas Pirate Bay

Originally designed by Spanish audio-visual artist Pablo Jimenez (aka Bricky_Brick over at LEGO Ideas), the LEGO Ideas Pirate Bay is a modular set that every fan of the classic LEGO Pirates will surely want to have. It has been four years ago when LEGO released its last pirate-inspired sets since the theme’s inception way back in 1989. Undoubtedly, this is one of LEGO’s most beloved and successful original creations, and seeing the LEGO Ideas Pirate Bay finally becoming a reality as an official LEGO set seems to be long overdue. The best part of it is that the brick-built pirate fortress follows a modular design similar to the likes of the LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store (21310).

LEGO Ideas Pirate Bay

Pablo’s original design clocks in at somewhere between 2,550 to 2,650 pieces and includes seven (7) pirate minifigures. It also features four (4) interchangeable levels that highlight some of the things that a sea-loving pirate would love to do: having a hearty meal, manning the cannons, and planning their next adventure on the high seas.

The LEGO Ideas Pirate Bay

Prepare the cannons sailors, you have to defend the bay!

Welcome to the impregnable pirate fortress, house of Red beard, many sailors fear these waters, the most dangerous pirates make their stop here. Be careful not to be locked in jail or possibly the only place you can be, as long as you do not find the secret exit.

There is a rumor, they say that there is a treasure map, it is believed that it is below the canteen, many of them are looking for the treasure but none of them have yet achieved it. Will you be able to find it?

It is time to return to the classics and what better than this super bastion built on shipwrecks, with traps like the pendular anchor that warns unexpected visitors and the dog and the monkey guardian. The food is delicious in our tavern, many pirates only stop to eat here. In this small pirate town we find a small farm with pigs and chickens, lobsters crabs and fish, also delight this area.

A Modular set that includes 7 minifigures and: 1 monkey, 1 scorpion, 3 crabs, 3 hens, two pigs, 3 parrots, a shark, and a dog.

The LEGO Ideas Pirate Bay is tentatively scheduled for release some time next year, and with two other equally impressive LEGO Ideas sets that go along with it, 2020 is certainly a great year to be a LEGO Ideas fan. Again, our warmest congratulations to Pablo Jimenez and to all who made this next LEGO set possible.
