New Pirates of the Block Carribean

We first saw this at SDCC and there was lots of rumours and speculations about why the Pirates line was cancelled...

Speculate no more because Lego has announced the latest franchise:

  1. Well, this gotta be better than those Mega Blocks pirates, so - looking forward to it!

  2. I hope they are better than Mega Bloks, but I'm not sure which direction Lego will make it. They don't exactly have a good track record with license - witness the less than stellar Ben 10 and Last Airbender sets.

  3. Yeah, but OTOH there are Harry Potter, Spidey, Batman, etc sets, so there's still hope :).

  4. There is always hope. The first year will be the best year, or the only year...
