Help our heroes escape the Micro Managers on MetalBeard’s Sea Cow!

Shiver me timbers, the Micro Managers are approaching our heroes and MetalBeard aboard his wacky Sea Cow ship. Climb the mast to keep a look-out. Fire the powerful shooting cannons from the side of the ship to repel the Micro Managers. And watch out – one has flick missiles and the other can shoot a net! Raise the anchors, spin the rear propellers and steer the ship to safety with the mini version of MetalBeard at the wheel. Includes 4 minifigures: Benny, Emmet, Vitruvius and Wyldstyle, and 2 figures: MetalBeard and QueasyKitty.

    Wow nice set. Price is nothing to marvel at however.

    What do people think of the technic panels for the sails? I think they look pretty good aside from the very last set. Maybe the front ones could have been double sided also.

    Despite liking them, I think I would probably still prefer the cloth sails, or some improvement on those.

    The pirate sets were my favourite as a kid in the 90s, and I hadn’t started collecting Lego again when the last few sets of ships were released.

    Not too keen on the ebay prices for them, so while the predicted price is high, my ship collection might start here. Might even risk buying a second at some stage to sell in a year or two in an attempt to pay for this addiction.

      I am actually a big fan of the Technic panel sails. It’s certainly a different look.

      I have always worried about how well the cloth sails last over time.
