About this deal

Lego reintroduced Pirates and Imperial Guards in minifigure scale for 2009, including the pirate ship 6243 Brickbeard's Bounty, just in time for the theme's 20th anniversary. I like to believe that the two pirates with moustaches where from the original set and have found themselves unlucky again (especially the one who lost a leg between 1989 and 1992). Lego adopted this idea and created a whole new faction, my only real gripe with the Redcoats is the fact that Lego did not make any effort to give anyone a new face design, the simply inverted the colours again swapping black for brown and vice versa. Others feel that Brickbeard is just a new release of Roger/Redbeard, due to the close resemblance between the two figures. In 2011, a Lego Pirates-themed land was introduced to Legoland Florida, based on the Lego Pirates toy theme.

The Renegade runner, seen by many as one of the worst ships, looking at the old ships they included important things, like a ships wheel and an anchor, the runner sadly misses these finer points in sailing (though they have a compass, so they will know if there going in the wrong direction they just cannot do anything about it).Overall it’s a simple little set and I like the leaves but the one thing I don’t get is why the flag, surly the pirate would not want to advertise his presence to others.

Broadside is depicted as corrupted and lazy person, who only likes to eat, collect taxes and execute citizens of Port Royal. Starting with a 1992 set, there appeared a minifigure quite similar to Captain Redbeard but more intimidating, the main difference being the torso with a shredded red shirt and sporting a massive knife slung through his belt. Lego Group has also released a variety of official Pirate Lego merchandise ranging from clothing to stick-on tattoos to board games.Choose from the protective metal British Shako helmet, the British Knapsack, Flintlock Musket, and Flintlock Pistol. However, in 1995 Lego discontinued all of the previously released Imperial Guards sets from 1992 to 1993 (particularly their larger sets, the 6271 Imperial Flagship and 6277 Imperial Trading Post), making the new release 6263 Imperial Outpost the sole Imperial Guards set, which essentially made the year a Pirates versus Islanders conflict. Black Jack Hawkins is a prominent member and he's very competitive, George is very good friend to Parma Sean LaFeet and he once wore a black bicorne and a peg-leg, Jake the Snake Blake is very similar to Captain Ironhook and he owns a pet crocodile, Gonzo Goldbar can be seen helping Captain Ironhook and resisting Imperial Guards quite often, Parma Sean LaFeet is a very good friend to George and Tattoo McGoo is very similar to LaFeet.

I remember thinking at the time, wow I can swap the multiple captains legs with some of the regular crew and as such create variety.It must be noted that the cost worked out as three of these ships compared to one Black Sea Barracuda or Skull Eye’s Schooner, and a fleet of three of these looks really nice (especially if you have a Schooner or Barracuda following behind).
