I know it's been said before but this could finally be the theme that give SW a run for it's money in my opinion. It has depth from all the films, great fan base, and great looking sets/minifigs so far. I'm very excited personally.

Man, LEGO's new hat designs get bigger every year. What's up with Blackbeard's ginormous sword?

Cool ship. I like the dark red sails and dark brown hull.

These sets delight me.
My favorite elements thus far are:
The minifigures (they seem to be universally good), especially Blackbeard and the mermaids
The globe
The compass (small, but handy)
The bottles
The gold bars
The minifig headgear
The white shoulder bag

There seems to be a lot of great variety in every set, which is what I like to see!

it's not a shoulder bag. it's a sheath for the sword.

When did MTV become the source for new LEGO release pics? So confused right now.

Hooray! We have clearance to talk about these!

I really like all the sets I'm seeing, especially the smaller ones. Captain's Cabin, Isle de la Muerta and Aqua de Vida are all nice and small sets. It seems that LEGO had abandoned small scene-based sets for its Star Wars license - I miss the days of "Jedi Defense I & II", "Final Duel I & II", "Jabba's Message" and "Jabba's Prize". However, I'm pretty sure the prices will be inflated sky-high, especially because it's a licensed theme, and because here in Singapore where there are high tariffs on imported goods and strict territory control by the LEGO group ensuring a uniformly high price, and several other factors that have been discussed earlier.

Another reason I really like this line is for the intense nostalgia trippin'. How many of us grew up on the old Pirates and Islanders sets of the 90s? It's great to see minifigures and pieces that hark back to that era come back, and also to see new parts and elements for the pirate themes.

I like the idea to put Jack Sparrow in every set, but there are several versions of the figure to confound completist collectors.

One concern is that many of sets look a little "juniorised", with fairly simple designs and big pieces - Aqua de Vida seems to be the main offender. I remember with the Spider-Man movie sets, I was disappointed that Doc Ock's hideout at the pier was purposely made more juniorised than the other sets.

To end off, the Queen Anne's Revenge looks great! I hope this means we may see more of the POTC's flagships, such as the Black Pearl, the Flying Dutchman, and the Dauntless.

Love the sets, think Lego has done a really good job on the figures, sets look well detailed, and as written above many of the new pieces show promise. Of special interest is the globe and compass.
Hope the black pearl is as good!

Some of the "A few objects from a scene" sets look marginal, (*sigh* as a few of lego's sets these days do.) but that ship is beautiful, simply BEAUTIFUL.

I also agree that these initial offering open the door to future (and better) sets. Black Pearl, or Kraken Attack anyone?

The Queen Anne's Revenge does look tasty, but. . . is anyone else a little disappointed that the hull is one single element?
