Lego never stop over delivering and their highly detailed Lego sets are marvelous feats of Lego engineering.
The Lego Pirates Imperial Flagship is one such building set, although this is not intended for young kids and is recommended for young adults aged 14 years and beyond.
Here you have a 1,664 piece set.
These are small, plastic Lego builds but the accessories that come with them, the level of detail and attention given to the finished product is simply awe-inspiring.
There is so much to admire in this Imperial Flagship that it is really difficult to know where to start.
To begin with, aside from the Lego pieces that you will build into a ship, you also get 9 mini figures which include the:
- Ship’s captain
- his daughter
- a pirate captain prisoner in shackles
- the ship’s cook
- a lieutenant
- 4 soldiers
On the actual ship itself, which is full of authentic detailing and has some incredible realistic looking features, you have 3 removable sections.
The Main hull contains:
- 4 firing cannons
- ammunition crates
- prison complete with rat
- saw shark minifigure head
- a moving rudder
- fully-equipped ship’s kitchen with fish
- turkey legs
With moving parts and the minifigures, there is so much you can do….sure, kids aged 14 and above, and adults might not go all out play acting but to be able to arrange and re-arrange the characters all around the ship is kind of interesting to do!
There is a working anchor which can be raised and lowered. Also, the front deck has working doors too.
If you open the back house deck’s doors, it will reveal the captain’s chambers complete with a map, an organ, a treasure chest filled to the brim with jewels and gold, 6 opening windows, a telescope, 3 deck lanterns and a bottle of poison.
Can you see the level of detail here? Not just on the actual ship itself but in the interiors too?
Note: This is a really huge ship when built out, measuring about 3 feet long from tip to end and about 2 feet tall from bottom to tip of the highest mast.
