Never had this set, but the nostalgia is real with this one.

Ah, something that doesn't relate to James Bond. This one was never released in Australia, in fact, I can't ever remembering seeing it before. But I loved all these little island-hideaway style sets.

I cannot say that I recall seeing this as a kid let alone knowing about it later on. I kind of noticed it within the last few years and just recently picked it up as I am trying to collect all the Pirate sets. It’s a neat little set!

I remember seeing this set on store shelves. It came in a neat, treasure chest-shaped box with artwork adorning it. To see the set clearly from the instruction manual shows it was really just something of a mish-mash; an all-in-one sampler of what the Pirates line in 1995 had to offer. If I wasn't so in love with Aquazone at the time, I might have picked this one up!

I wish you didn't exclude newer sets from these. my lego-buying days began in 2005 so I have none of these sets from the 70's, 80's and 90's and can't join in with people who are talking about enjoying the sets.

^^ Strange this wasn't released in Australia. Set 1788. First Fleet! Quite appropriate for pirates theme, which was that era too.
