First Look At The LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean The Silent Mary 71042 Box Art Images.

We’re roughly two months away before the 5th instalment of Pirates of the Caribbean sails into theaters in May, and to celebrate Disney’s successful movie franchise, LEGO has already unveiled its massive, exclusive set dedicated to the film. Coming in at 2,294 pieces, The Silent Mary (71042) is a LEGO Store exclusive retailing at $199.99. We’ve seen its official images, including its range of minifigures, and this time, thanks to Minifigure Price Guide, we now have a (a bit dark) glimpse of its official box art. Though the box art has shown what we already know about the set, it is interesting to see the rest of the elements and pieces that come with it.

As it seems, The Silent Mary will come with new animal parts, specifically a zombie shark. Based on its box art, the undead ship has two of these newer pieces, the second one a bit hidden along the far left side of the front cover. This zombie shark part was already revealed a few months ago by LEGO insider delta.customs, though it was not clear during that time what set it will be included.

First Look At the LEGO Marvel Superheroes GOTG Vol. 2 Milano Polybag 30449.

Last month, LEGO has revealed its latest line of Marvel Superheroes sets in line with the upcoming release of the next Marvel Cinematic franchise, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. With three sets to boot, we see the gang’s famed starship, the Milano, making a comeback in The Milano vs the Abilisk (76081) set. Now if you are one of those blessed souls that were able to have the 2017 LEGO Calendar with vouchers, then you probably know by now that a chibi, polybag version of the Milano will be available in May just in time for the films big screen debut. The LEGO Marvel Superheroes GOTG Vol. 2 Milano Polybag (30449) comes as a free gift for any minimum LEGO purchase of £50 or roughly $60 together with the voucher. The polybag comes in at 64 pieces, with its iconic orange and blue color scheme.

As I understand it, the 2017 LEGO Calendar with vouchers was widely distributed in Europe. However, those in the US need not worry because we can expect that the Milano polybag will likely be offered as an in-store and online promotional most probably during the spring months, also within the same price point.

First Images of the LEGO BrickHeadz Pirates of the Caribbean Surfaces Online!

Disney’s upcoming adventure-in-the-high seas franchise is set off to sail once more this spring with its fifth film, Pirates of the Caribbean – Dead Men Tell No Tales. With LEGO poised to offer another direct-to-consumer set (rumored to be Salazar’s ghost ship, the ghastly Silent Mary) to celebrate the release of the film, it seems that TLG is adding more buzz to the film by including two of the main characters in the POTC franchise in its latest collectible sets. Thanks to an eBay post, we now have a clear idea on what’s next with the LEGO BrickHeadz line.

As you can see, at the back of the box of the Belle and Beast LEGO BrickHeadz are images of two additional Disney characters in their collectible brick-built versions: Captain Jack Sparrow (41593) and Captain Armando Salazar (41594), both of which are numbered 9 and 10 respectively. According to just2good from Eurobricks who pointed out the eBay listing, it is expected that this two new sets will retail at the same price of $9.99 same as that of the other LEGO BrickHeadz sets. The release date is rumored to be in April along side with the release of the D2C set that was mentioned earlier.

 

So what do you think ye brick mateys? Will you fancy yourself with this booty?
