I'm sure they'll be adding loads more in the coming weeks! 63 comments on this article By Captin Rex in United States, 02 Dec 2008 15:44Huw, how do you find the lego sets , I can't find thm on the website. :( By legomarine in United States, 02 Dec 2008 16:00there on lego.com but its only 5 sets not the limited edition one By phazonix in United States, 02 Dec 2008 16:24The 09' Racers and Pirates are also available at lego stores in CA (at least at Downtown Disney) The fold out Race tracks are 14.99, and range from 150-160 pieces I believe, I didn't really get a good look at them, also, the two creator sets, the Yellow Plane is twenty, and the green car is 12.99. Those were all I really saw there, but looks like 09's coming early! By phazonix in United States, 02 Dec 2008 16:26the 09 racers are also on the lego shop website By bluemoose in United Kingdom, 02 Dec 2008 16:28They are here -http://shop.lego.com/ByTheme/Leaf.aspx?cn=554&d=70but your country will need to be set to 'USA' or 'Canada' otherwise you'll get a "We're Sorry ..." error message.There are currently 6 sets listed - 6243 Brickbeard’s Bounty - US$99.99- 6239 Cannon Battle - US$5.99- 6240 Kraken Attackin’ - US$9.99- 6241 Loot Island - US$19.99- 8397 Pirate Survival - US$3.49- 8396 Soldier’s Arsenal - US$3.49 By The_Best_Fighter, 02 Dec 2008 19:03Some "new" sets always show up right after the free shipping sale ends, this has been going on for a few years.They added the Farm folder but no Farm sets yet. Also two Construction sets are out, the $100ripoff and the dump truck. By Captin Rex in United States, 02 Dec 2008 19:09Yeah I found the sets on the web site , but I got three of them at toysrus aready. By Roneck in United States, 02 Dec 2008 20:17I noticed they havent released all the sets? I wonder why. Oh well, i already got all of them at toys r us. By dragon_teenager in United States, 02 Dec 2008 23:38That pirate ship is way overpriced! By Smallsam99 in United States, 03 Dec 2008 06:06yes, the pirates are out finally, but whatever happened to coming out in 2009? By Trandoshan in Canada, 03 Dec 2008 08:46the begining of year sets mostly always get released in december of the previous year. By Trandoshan in Canada, 03 Dec 2008 08:54The lego pirate building set is also available! By The_Best_Fighter, 03 Dec 2008 10:32They come out in 2009 everywhere besides LEGO and TRU.And the 2009 sets have seen a sharp increase in price. The last few years more stickers means more pieces. It was nice while it lasted. The horse trailer is 176 pieces for $23, no way that should have been more than $15-$20, all the Pirates are hugely overpriced. The dump truck has dozns of less pieces than the $15 cement and garage trucks and cost $15.I will be buying a whole lot less come next year. By bobjim2007, 03 Dec 2008 10:43IN the UK shop, if you enter a promocode, you can now get the new 15% VAT cut, so it should make all UK prices a little cheaper (2.5%). By baconreffic4 in United States, 03 Dec 2008 16:37wait i thought they were coming out in 2009 By just2good in United States, 03 Dec 2008 18:43Now they have pirates soldier fort on there! :D By just2good in United States, 03 Dec 2008 18:54Also, they have new tiny turbos... By Mr. F in Canada, 03 Dec 2008 19:32This is PERFECT timing because I am currently LOADED with leftover birthday money. By baconreffic4 in United States, 03 Dec 2008 19:35i want them to have the shipwreck hideout set By baconreffic4 in United States, 03 Dec 2008 19:46actually the ones in canada are more expensive By Mr. F in Canada, 03 Dec 2008 19:47Yes, but for once the currency conversion seems reasonable. By hustla187 in United States, 03 Dec 2008 20:55Let's hope these sets sell pretty good. I might get one but not sure which one. By Roneck in United States, 03 Dec 2008 23:10is the pirate ship wreck hideout only gonna be avalaible for awhile? also hustla287, i recommend getting soldiers fort. out of all the sets (yes i have them all) it has the most imperial minigigs and is the best center peice to get if you cant afford brickbeards bounty. Alomost any set can be added to it. only downfall is that it could use more detail. By LastStand in Canada, 03 Dec 2008 23:41FINALLY LEGO did something about the prices ! Canada prices have been cheaper now. YAYFor the $49.99 USD sets its now $64.99 CAD (NOT $69.99)-$19.99 USD = 24.99 CADRip off for USA buyers now for the pirate ship.$99.99 USD = $119.99 CADThe size and pricing should be $89.99 USD = $119.99 CADLooks like they are shifting to the currency adjustment of $1.00 USD = $1.20 CAD. It is still a little higher for Candians.However, the sets are now smaller. Look at the $19.99 USD sets. Its only 142 pieces. The price you pay should actually be 200 + pieces.Soldiers fort has only 300+ pieces for $49.99Should be around 400-600 pieces.Kind of sad how the sets are so much more smaller for the prices we pay.But i'm still really happy cause the prices in Canada have once again decreased from $1 USD = $1.50 CAD, then to $1.00 USD= $1.20 CAD. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH !!!!Definaitley for loot island and soldier's fort. By baconreffic4 in United States, 04 Dec 2008 17:34o sweat they have the new construction sets out but not all check them out By Mr. F in Canada, 04 Dec 2008 18:23If they're up on Lego.com, then I hope they'll be out in stores by the weekend. By hustla187 in United States, 04 Dec 2008 18:31Thanks Roneck. I'll look out for it. By baconreffic4 in United States, 04 Dec 2008 18:41i want shipwreck hideout!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! By Smallsam99 in United States, 04 Dec 2008 19:57Great sets and actually a good, decent remake of pirates but the only letdown is lack of sets(just at the moment)and piece count because I really wish they had more pieces and were bigger for the price but with this dumb inflation, nothing costs what it should anymore! By Trandoshan in Canada, 05 Dec 2008 08:57Yay soldier fort at canada shop at home! By bmwlego in United States, 06 Dec 2008 07:00Smallsam99I agree that the sets are expensive this year, and this is definitely tru with the Pirates theme. The piece count has gone down while the set price has gone up or stayed the same. Case in point, the green creator car from '09 has roughly 165 pieces. Last year's yellow creator car had roughly 210 pieces yet they both retail for $12.99! This is upsetting and leads me to believe that I won't be buying too many sets this year with my own money. Gifts and gift cards will have to do the trick for me this year.bmwlego By 18000pieces in United States, 06 Dec 2008 13:26I think that sometimes sets that are overpriced on LEGO.com, like the Pirates sets, are priced more appropriately at Walmart and other bargain stores when you buy them in-store. Same thing happens with hardcover books, so it wouldn't be too unreasonable to expect it this year.Let's just hope for the best. By chrisdog121411 in United States, 06 Dec 2008 13:30i think it is the economy because its so bad right know they had to do something with the price By Mr. F in Canada, 06 Dec 2008 14:11I think I'm going down to take a walk down at my local mall later today. Who knows? ;) By The_Best_Fighter, 06 Dec 2008 14:13The Tiny Turbos are neat, I like the $15 ones with the roads. By jonbuddy in United States, 06 Dec 2008 14:15When will Castle Town Square be put up on Legoshop.com?! By littlelegoluke in United States, 06 Dec 2008 16:27When will star wars come out? By jonbuddy in United States, 07 Dec 2008 18:12It's official: Pirates '09 is Pirates '08. I suggest you change it Huw (unless you're already doing that). By The_Best_Fighter, 07 Dec 2008 20:06It's official because you said so? :rolleyes:Pirates are 2009 sets, do you see them at Target or Walmart or any other store than TRU? No? That's because they are 2009 sets. By Brickmeister1138 in United States, 07 Dec 2008 20:30Lego always gets the next years line out during the christmas beforehand, it allows we the lego fans to have somthing cool to spend our christmas money on! I think Target and Wal-Mart will get them soon enough. The ones in my town's lego sections are much akin to the scene of a tornado. Forsee I do, a restock in the near future. By Brickmeister1138 in United States, 07 Dec 2008 22:15Double Post Apology again, I just found a TRU pamphlet in my newspaper today and it has an add for the Lego Pirates Sets! I am so going there!! By Mr. F in Canada, 07 Dec 2008 22:33I am heading there next weekend. My trip to the mall proved fruitless. By Brickmeister1138 in United States, 07 Dec 2008 22:37Wal-Mart, Kay-Bee Toys, TRU, Target or Other Mr. F? By LegoMan128 in United States, 08 Dec 2008 10:07Those sets are gunna sell fast, i ordered mine from the lego imagination center in florida and they only had 1 left after it was 10 minutes after they opened. By yellowcastle in United States, 08 Dec 2008 12:31The flyer at our Lego Store said the Castle Town Square would be available 1st/2nd week of January. By catman625 in United States, 08 Dec 2008 16:50I can't wait for the new star wars and Indiana Jones. I hope they start showing pics of the new sets that currently are avalible to see By nath8888 in United States, 08 Dec 2008 17:34I want to get the pirate ship! By Smallsam99 in United States, 08 Dec 2008 18:40I am going to get more pirates but I really want to see the new pictures of space Pol. 3, indy, star, wars(especially), and city! By nath8888 in United States, 09 Dec 2008 19:26I also really wanna see the lambo By Brickmeister1138 in United States, 10 Dec 2008 19:32Lambo? What is a Lambo? By Nickds in United States, 10 Dec 2008 23:10I just got back from Toys R Us, Pirate Ship 6243(Brickbeard's Bounty) was on sale for $84.99. It only showed at the register. I was able to apply a 20% off(one item) and a $10(entire purchase) off coupons to get it for $62.22. The Assistant Manager said they have a few items that are on sale but only show at register.Hope others can get in on this deal. By Smallsam99 in United States, 11 Dec 2008 06:16Where did you get a 20% off coupon for TRU? By Nickds in United States, 11 Dec 2008 14:41It was a private mailing to it's card holders. 20% off one item on December 10th between 8-11pm only. By Mr. F in Canada, 11 Dec 2008 20:44Shipwreck Hideout is now on lego.com! By d.c. gentry in United Kingdom, 13 Dec 2008 12:07You lot in the US are so lucky! Here in the UK we'll have to wait and wait . . . and wait. By nath8888 in United States, 14 Dec 2008 09:51brickmeister1138a lambo is the slang term for a lamborghini, and in this case, the fabeled lego one that is suposed to come out. By Mr. F in Canada, 14 Dec 2008 13:30I'm a tad annoyed that, despite Lego Pirates being available on the website and at retailers across the US, I haven't found it anywhere in Canada. If anyone here is Canadian like myself and has seen even a SINGLE '09 set, please speak up. By Slayton in Canada, 14 Dec 2008 17:34For those in Canada,Toys R Us Canada has listed 4 of the new pirates sets on their website, availability being Dec. 20. Who knows if they'll be in store then too. Of the four sets they have listed, they've only jacked up the price over Lego Shop at Home on one set so far.Brickbeard's Bounty - $119.99Soldier's Fort - $64.99Loot Island - $24.99Kraken Attackin' - $14.99 ($11.99 on Shop@Home) By Mr. F in Canada, 14 Dec 2008 18:19THANK YOU! By StormSworder in United Kingdom, 15 Dec 2008 04:27Why not available in the UK? Are these sets US only? You can get some of them at Amazon UK but they're quite ridiculously over-priced. £129.99 for Brickbeard's Bounty! That must be about $200! What's going on? By Mr. F in Canada, 15 Dec 2008 11:17I think they should be available in the UK by March. (Just guessing.) In my experience, sets available in one part of the world are usually available everywhere else in (at most) 4 months. By yellowcastle in United States, 18 Dec 2008 17:38Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the TRU...they're back at it. TRU just marked up all their 2009 Star Wars and Pirates. They are even trying to sell Impulse sets for $6.99!?!? By Captin Rex in United States, 30 Dec 2008 20:00Pirates sets are out at wal-mart. Commenting has ended on this article.
