The first 2009 LEGO sets are starting to show up in the LEGO Shop online, starting with Pirates!
Behold 6243 Brickbeard’s Bounty. Yarrrrrrr!!!
Unlike the Pirates sets available in the US back in the 1990s, the cannons in these sets actually fire (and they’re a cool gun-metal gray).
The two “impulse purchase” sets look like a great way to build your army:
Here’s the full list of 2009 LEGO Pirates sets available so far (prices in USD):
- $5.99: 6239 Cannon Battle
- $9.99: 6240 Kraken Attackin’
- $19.99: 6241 Loot Island
- $49.99: 6242 Soldiers’ Fort
- $99.99: 6243 Brickbeard’s Bounty
- $3.49: 8396 Soldier’s Arsenal
- $3.49: 8397 Pirate Survival
A couple more sets, including
6242 Soldiers’ Fort and 6253 Shipwreck Hideout, haven’t been added to the site yet. We’ll keep you updated as the rest of the 2009 LEGO sets begin showing up in the LEGO Shop online.
The links will probably only work in the US and Canada. And yes, I’m aware that these have been available from a certain mega-store run by a giraffe for a while now.
