This is one of the lines I'm looking forward to. We finally have our first view of these sets. A Dutch online store, has got some rather blurry images of the sets. I have to say these look amazing. Lego could have gone the "we could care less" route ala Avatar, or the "action feature is king" route of Indiana Jones, but they didn't. Instead they went the Star Wars route and made awesome looking sets. My favourite is Whitecap Bay, with the light brick and the buildings.
The Queen Anne's Revenge looks as if it's going to be a huge ship too! Thanks to A Modular Life for the heads up.
