Nice pocket money set and a good army builder. Something I'd like to see Lego doing again

Hmmm... disappointingly not Clikits.

Great figure, great set, and around the same cost as a CMF. An accurate Revolutionary (even though I'm sure Pirates takes place in the 19th century) War era redcoat, a musket, blunderbuss, a pack, and a weapons rack. Yet most CMFs are just a figure.

Ooooo! I had some of these as a kid and loved them!

Finding these stocked by the dozens in Toys R Us made my wallet much, much more empty.

This head’s eye printing always looked off to me. Does he have a black eye or what?

I miss these little boxed impulse sets.

Finally one that I own....
I miss the good old days where these boxed sets were available retail in Australia. When sets this small became Polybags, small impulse sets virtually disappeared from our shores....

@namekuji: I think it’s just one raised eyebrow and one lowered, with the brim of his shako making it look off by concealing things

I used to own this one, along with its counterpart with a pirate roasting a fish.

@cody6268 I always assumed it took place in the Golden Age of Piracy, 1650 ish.

This very set together with the counterpart Pirate took me out of the Lego Dark Age

A nice cute set. I only bought one because I have enough soldiers, though I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one of a bluecoat soldier if there is one in future.

This is the size of set you'd find with a magazine these days.

That's quite the arsenal...

I used to love these tiny sets. A few, probably including this, went for £1.49, while most were £1.99. That was a very satisfying pricepoint for children, and also adults who wanted to sample a new theme and couldn't quite justify buying anything bigger.

This would be a polybag today.
