The latest addition to the LEGO Ideas line up has been announced, Set# 21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay, 2545 pieces, 8 minifigs. The original submission ‘Pirate Bay’ has been wonderfully remastered into a nostalgic masterpiece that is sure to tug on the heartstrings and fond memories of many an AFOL. Clearly inspired by the 1989 Black Seas Barracuda this modern version features all the nostalgia including classic styled box art, eight minifigs, pirate flags and cannon.
The defining feature of this set is however, the ship can be assembled into a stand alone model that is absolutely stunning and worthy of display in its own right. I was lucky enough to have been given an advanced copy of the set and to be honest, I love it!
The set will be available from LEGO stores and LEGO Shop@home from April 1st.. (no joke) and will retail for $199 USD, $299 AUD and my guestimate is $350 NZD
