The only problem I have is trying to find room in a one-bedroom apartment to put all of my future masterpieces!
These are the instructions for building the LEGO Duplo DUPLO Big Pirate Ship that was released in 2006.

The window for my attic will be placed tomorrow and properly all piratesets will be in place next week. Actually I thought to make it bigger then set 6285, but it will take a long time when it's in the way I like it. Ahoy Mateys!  Jake and his crew of swashbuckling pirates were among the first characters to capture my little boy’s interest.
Mama even made him a Jake and the Never Land Pirates costume to fully inhabit his favorite friendly pirate.
Given his interest, we are thrilled to work with our friends at Disney Junior to help spread the word about their upcoming Disney Junior Family Night Special Event!  Jake and the Never Land Pirates Battle for the Book will premiere on the Disney Channel this Sunday, October 26th, at 6pm EST. To stir up excitement for special family TV night, Disney Junior surprised our little guy with a fun creative task of  building an epic adventure with an amazing Jake and the Never Land Pirates LEGO® DUPLO® set.
Jake’s pirate ship has since been on daily living room adventures to save Never Land.  And guess what? I know I saw that costume before and told you that I loved it, but I’ll say it again…SO CUTE!
We love Lego around here…as old as I am, I still enjoy building with my kiddos at school. Let's not beat around the bush on this review: the Queen Anne's Revenge (QAR) should be the best of the Pirates of the Caribbean sets, by a pretty big margin, right? This review will be a bit different than others in the series, since we've had two pirate ships in recent years I can compare it too: The Imperial Flagship and Brickbeard's Bounty.
I'd count them all as minifigs too, but nothing all that special, save that orange torso, and he's got arms for legs. We get several "again?"'s in this set: the two zombie crewmen that also show up in 4191 and 4194, Blackbeard identical to how he shows up in 4192, and Jack Sparrow just like he's been in all the other expensive sets. One thing to note, while I didn't have the issue, there have been more than a handful of complaints on the printing of the figure in this set. As an aside, I complained about that fact to LEGO, and the CSR was nice enough to send me cannons to fill it up.
The whole cannon thing sort of underscores a problem with this "pirate" ship, and it's something that really bugs me in the whole thing.
The additional problem with being such a shallow build is that it makes the build boring and the ship somewhat fragile as you're assembling it. The rest of the ship consists of the captain's cabin (not to be confused with the set, the Captain's Cabin, because it has absolutely nothing in common with it) and the foredeck.
That being said, the masts are just the giant bricks, like we always see, and the cross spars and beams are better than we got on Brickbeard's (sails slipped off too much) and worse than the Flagship (thick, brown technic pieces and joints, looked great).
Both Brickbeard's and the Flagship have similar problems with their ram, but not with the masts, and both of their solutions are fairly simple to put back on.
The instability of this is made even worse by the forward sail that connects between the ram and the forward mast.
Interesting review - especially as I'm half way through building the Imperial Flagship (which took up about 7 hours of my time yesterday as I'm making a stop-motion video of its assembly). I was just up front with them about it, said it seemed dishonest to show the ship with all the spots for cannons and not include them.
Thank you for a very in depth review, I've got one of these on lay-by and I'm due to pick it up shortly, it really looked good. The positioning of the cannon depended a lot on the type of ship actually, and the engagements that they were handling.
Having read these comments, I contacted customer services to see if there was a way to purchase more canons as I'd been unsuccessful on Pick-a-Brick (which is true) and Bricklink seems very expensive. In fact, it is my big Megabloks achievement, but that’s much of a muchness, because Megabloks is just like Lego, but looks more realistic and less like a bunch of blocks put together.
Unfortunately it took only a few hours to complete and wasn’t too difficult, but what it has done (besides looking awesome) is that it has given me the appetite for more Lego and Megabloks projects.


That's why we're bringing you the review of the Queen Anne's Revenge a prompt six months after it came out!
This isn't a knock against LEGO, who has always had colorful boxes, but a lot of the pirate sets feature embellishments to make the set seem more in place.
The legs are actually fairly cool, and I could see those being worked into city builds (or even castle or similar stuff) without any problem.
I'll reserve any discussion on that, because I don't know how she fits into the movie, but can venture a guess why she was cast.
And because LEGO has never been able to count effectively when building a pirate ship, you only get 3 cannons with the ship. It's a lot of brown, more brown, and then some other colors to mix in because we'd never want the hull of a ship to look uniform and matched. In a rather amazing feat, they actually managed to make a cabin that was even flimsier than Brickbeard's, and by cabin, I mean a few walls.
I get they're looking for a movie feel, but they don't need accuracy as much as they need the LEGO feel. Yes, I get that it's a more expensive set, but it could have been scaled down and still done right on the QAR. The ram on QAR uses another strange setup, with a technic pin and a bit of offset, to hold the mast brick that goes forward. At the front, it gets worse, and we incorporate torsos and arms into the mix to ring around and add to the fragility of this whole mess. Save up some more money and buy the Imperial Flagship or just build yourself a good pirate ship. I was probably going to pick up the QAR as a companion set seeing as the Flagship is my first ship, but I think I'll probably give it a miss now. They didn't ask for much on it, just said they would send them, so I suppose it's been a common complaint. In real life ships, they often only had enough cannons for one side of a ship, if that much. I don't think I could blatantly lie about missing cannon or whatnot in a setI don't think anybody is talking about doing that. If we're going to bring up historical accuracy, we should throw out the very ideas of pirates, but beyond that, most pirates didn't use cannons as weapons of war. It'll be interesting to know what the response is, but I won't be especially upset if they don't send me any out. It is the Black Pearl, Jack Sparrow’s ship from the Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise*.
My husband and I both love building with LEGO and I think that we will continue to have with them over the years as the sets become more sophisticated! The very fact that Disney wants to partner with them tells you what a great toy it really i. QAR is a central piece of the new movie, the ship of the bad guy, and you just can't help but be awed when you see the movie art or even the box art of the set.
The carved wood motif, the ocean the ship would never float on, the logos and treasure maps, these all are there to distract you from a somewhat boring ship.
His torso printing doesn't match colors with the flesh arms or head, the legs are just normal grey, and the face has no utility. It's always nice to get another female fleshy faces for balancing out the sausage fest we get in most other licensed sets, but you'll need to bring a different hairpiece. We've seen two other pirate ships in recent years, the revision of Brickbeard's Bounty and the wonderful Imperial Flagship that sort of wrapped up the latest Pirates series.
But this is the third set I've bought in the last few years looked like pieces were missing because of empty gunwells. I know, complaining about tedium at the same time I complain about variety is a bit hypocritical, but hey, you write a review if you don't like it! And most are just sort of "also there." The whole back mast is a great example of that, it's just sort of built up with a single sail tacked on. Unlike the Flagship, it uses a vertical brick that's sort of stuck on the masts, and then a hinge bit to stick the flags. The leg-less skeleton clips on, so he's a bit sturdier, but everything he's connected to comes off if you look at it funny.


I didn't expect a whole lot from other sets in the line, because they were supposed to be playsets. This was due to the fact that combat consisted of circling each other so the same side always faced the enemy.
I think the idea is that they called Customer Service and were fully truthful about how many cannon they got, then complained that they thought that was an insufficient number given the fact that the ship was built to accomodate more than twice as many.
Since the purpose of a pirate was to capture the ship, they wanted to leave the ship intact. Having spent way too much on Lego recently, getting a few extra canons would be a nice little bonus though. We all know what a stinker the movie was by now, even if you're like me and still haven't gotten around to watching it, relying only on Wikipedia entries and the discussions of customers when hiding inside the DVD rack at Walmart.
Unlike most of the other sets in the line, the only thing this consists of is the boat itself and the minifigs. I can see this particular guy ending up as a fairly expensive figure in the end, just given the rarity of everything about him. The Flagship had a raised deck, Brickbeard's had the pretense of one (at $45 less than this set).
That's actually had it's supposed to be, since this is based on a real ship and all, but that back sail was bigger than all of the other sails! The only time you might need to switch sides is if natural formations like a reef or cliff was in your way. If Customer Service is willing to send more cannon your way on those grounds, I don't call that abuse. They were far more likely to favor speed, which meant less cannons, or use them as a warning shot (or to take out rigging and sails). That's not a ding, it's kind of refreshing to not have to remember all these little extras when putting together a review or pictures. I get that this is LEGO, and you have to work in the piece and size constraints, but this feature, more than anything else, ruins this whole ship. I know that the Imperial Flagship carries a bigger price ($50 more), but you only need to see these two side-by-side to see how many misses are in the QAR. It should have been made smaller with better features, or made some other trade-offs to improve it's looks and build. The box doesn't really highlight exactly how bad the interior of this thing is, and that was the worst part about it.
They tried to cram whatever guns they could, but pirate ships didn't typically carry their own provisions, that was the purpose of stealing. Seven is the "official" LEGO count, nine is the Bricklink count, and ten is what you actually come up with when you lay them out.
While I've been hard on this set, and stickers in a lot of my reviews, this is an example of how to use them right. Just while moving the set around, not swooshing, just rearranging, the mast and ram came apart on me three or four times.
If you've ever seen the Flagship, you know that thing is a monster, and QAR is just a bit shorter than it. So while lego ships look empty, you could just put some riflemen sticking out the ports, or mount some gaff hooks for boarding. And the crew wanted to be there, since the conditions (and terms) on pirate ships were often much better than with the navy, which gave us forced conscription, press gangs, and made saw the crew as disposable. There are also two other skeletons, identical to the jobs we got in those somewhat abysmal Castle sets a few year back. You could argue the QAR would actually be a barque, but only based on the LEGO model, not on the movie.
These ships were built for war and battle (and made bad pirate ships, but good movie props), and would have carried multiple guns on one or more decks. Shifting the guns to one side or the other worked for a broadside of fusillade, but not for the fast attacks and shifting of a pirate ship.
