Apparently without realizing it, I jumped the gun on the new 2010 pirate ship set #10210 last night when it was announced at BrickCon. I apologize in advance if I did. 😳 Here’s the official announcement and info: 🙂

Andrew Becraft of The Brothers Brick has a whole bunch of official photos on his Flickr photostream including several detail shots.

I have to say it truly is a stunning set, and a nice cap to the discontinuation of the Pirates line next year. Sorry for those who didn’t see the news about that on other forums or blogs yet for not mentioning it sooner. Sometimes I forget to mention important facts on this blog. Mainly because so many of the other blogs or forums mention it. But I was even called out on how I hadn’t mentioned something sooner than I did the other day, so forgive me if you hadn’t heard. 😕

I have a sneaky suspicion as why LEGO is discontinuing the Pirates theme, but I don’t want to start any more rumors than there already are about that! 😉

From what I’ve seen (officially and unofficially) of the 2010 line, it looks like it is shaping up to be a great year!

Now if only my wallet can handle it. 😀

    Just bought myself the latest pirate ship as a birthday gift (always wanted one as a kid, only now i’m older and economically sound enough to enjoy it)

    I was just thinking how this line really needed a second ship for some epic sea battles and here it is in all its glory! here’s thinking it’ll be quite pricey though
