LEGO Pirates The Brick Bounty 70413 Review

LEGO Pirates 70413 The Brick Bounty 01

 

LEGO re-introduced the LEGO Pirates theme to a new generation of builders for the first time in two decades. The LEGO Pirates The Brick Bounty 70413 comes with mini-figures that have not been available since it was originally introduced, including the infamous Pirate Captain.

Long time LEGO fans and those that remember their childhood in the early 1990’s will remember this collection quite well. Back then, LEGO had several different Pirate ships to choose from along with accessory packs and Pirate bases to choose from. We however did not recall this, as we did not own the collection back in the day and at the time, there was no internet to research what was out on shelves unless you convinced your parents to take you to the toy store. The one Pirate ship that was mine was a bit too difficult to put together, and therefore never got built. Only the mini-figures were played with and after additional research on this, it appears that the original instructions weren’t that clear.

Jumping ahead two decades, now that the ship is back, it is built at long last and the Captain can finally sail the seven seas looking for treasure and fighting anyone that stands in his way. A piece of my childhood is reclaimed, and since everyone from the early 1990’s is all grown up, we can all enjoy the collection once again.

Availability: March 2015

Sculpt:

The LEGO Pirate Ship is an all-new sculpt and building the set is easier than we remember from two decades ago. It comes in 6 different polybags that are numbered, with another polybag including the sails, instructions, and other pieces.

The ship itself stands at 18″ high (from the top of the masts), 22″ long, and 6″ wide (estimated as LEGO came up with different measurements that we provided below) and features 5 sails, Captain’s quarters with a removable roof, pivoting windows, and everything you see in the description below.

Some additional points we want to make not listed below is the fact that the pirate cabin boy is the shortest mini-figure and has no leg articulation, the Bluecoat Admiral has two facial expressions (a grin and a cowardly look), and the ankor is chain linked and can be raised or lowered by moving the knob.

Official Product Description:

Hoist the Jolly Roger and set sail! The pesky pirates are heading for the high seas aboard their mighty galleon, with a chest full of booty stashed in the hold. But the Bluecoat Soldiers have caught up with them in their rowboat and are ready for action! Help the Bluecoat Soldiers commandeer the vessel and recover the stolen treasure. Launch a fierce broadside attack and board the ship. Then draw your weapons and defeat the scurvy pirates. When you’re done, put the rogues behind bars and lock them up for good! The awesome LEGO® Pirates Brick Bounty features 2 tall masts with huge sails, rigging and crow’s nests, Jolly Roger, working winch with anchor, cannons, walk-the-plank function and a saw-nosed shark. Includes a skeleton and 7 minifigures with assorted weapons and accessories: a pirate captain, pirate first mate, pirate cabin boy, pirate cook, Bluecoat Admiral, Bluecoat Sergeant and a Bluecoat Soldier.

Overall:

The LEGO Pirate Ship will be one of the most memorable purchases that we make this year, as it not only brings back a piece of a childhood, but it also makes a great display piece and is loads of fun to play with.

We also encourage parents to build this set along with their children, as there are steps along the way (especially at the end) were children might get lost.

Highly Recommended.
