The next LEGO Ideas set has been revealed, and boy, am I really hyped for it! I’m pretty sure adult LEGO fans will all agree that the LEGO Ideas Pirates of Barracuda Bay (21322) is one set that surely triggers a lot of memories of our early days of LEGO building. Plus the fact that this latest LEGO Ideas set is just gorgeously stunning simply makes this latest offering a must-have. And LEGO couldn’t agree more. Read on for The LEGO Group’s official press release about the Pirates of Barracuda Bay (21322) to learn more about the inspiration behind this set.
Notwithstanding the threat of COVID-19, I must say that 2020 is a year of great releases as far as the LEGO Ideas theme is concerned. Other than this recent addition, we also have the LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street Apartment Building (21323) to watch out for. And if there are any LEGO sets that will fill in the top spot of my LEGO wishlist for 2020, these two will definitely suffice.
The LEGO Ideas Pirates of Barracuda Bay (21322) will be available beginning April 1st (and on my AFOL’s honor, this is NOT an April Fool’s Day joke) at LEGO Shop@Home and on LEGO brand stores, retailing for $199.99. It’s not on sale or pre-order yet, but you have the option of adding this to your LEGO online wishlist.
Arghhh me hearties! Explore an epic shipwreck with the new LEGO® Ideas Pirates of Barracuda Bay
The LEGO Group has announced the latest LEGO Ideas set, bringing back memories of the beloved LEGO Pirates theme.
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.
The new 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 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 and supply dock. 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 8 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 3 other pirates and 2 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 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.
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.
Fans can submit their own LEGO set ideas at ideas.LEGO.com.
21322 LEGO Ideas Pirates of Barracuda Bay will be available directly via LEGO.com and LEGO Stores from 1st April 2020.
