link not working, but very cool.  love the candles

Yeah, I noticed that too.  That's the sharable link that LEGO provides, so *shrug*.  Hopefully they will fix it.

Definitely a cool set.

This would look really nice next to my destiny's bounty. I may actually buy something to build on release finally.

The last dozen or so sets I’ve purchased on release day with the intention of cutting the seals and building are either still sitting in my “build” pile or saw a price spike just after release and fell prey to my black QFLL heart.

I've accepted the fact I will be building my LEGO world as my retirement...the only question is how will I get 10 years of stockpiled LEGO sets to Hawaii

This is a great set.  I think at the first 20 to 30% discount I'll buy 10 or 15.  Can't go wrong.

Exactly. Pirates never fail. If this set has a somewhat short life it'll be even better...

No, that usually takes quite a while for a discount like that on a big ideas set, it also doesn't happen often.  Which I found out by waiting too long on the fishing store.  I also have lots of storage room.

Another set that has taken a big step back from the initial ideas design. Original design was awesome! This... Not so much. But it should do well if it can be built as the classic ship

I think it looks great.  It's more appealing to kids and adults can easily substitute other colored elements to darken the mood.

To each their own, but this is awesome IMO.

The fact it is a 2-in1 makes it GREAT. Event the package is a throwback to the original Pirates, with the yellow border. If it only had an opening front flap, it would be perfect.

I don't disagree that it is very different from the Ideas submission, and I know some people will have good reason to be very disappointed, but I love this. The two different builds idea is pretty awesome, and I like this innovative step by LEGO. I've gone from "I'll probably pick one up near retirement when the price is right" to "I want one now!"  If only double VIP extended to April 1st...

Yes, a very different design but I still love it. God, I don’t know how I can justify dropping $200 for it for me ... I mean the kids. My four year old is obsessed with pirates and so is my 7 year old daughter.
