These two models make a good addition to what is already a good set, it's just a shame you have to take the ship apart to build these, but then, I guess that's the aim of these sets, to make you want more than one of them. If you already have a pirate ship then these alternate builds will add to the overall play value of the ship, somewhere for the ship to visit. [Editor's note: this review is for the alternate models.]
The new LEGO Pirate Ship is amazing! This set can actually build three different sets all in one. The instruction booklets for each build are included. We decided to build the actual pirate ship itself. The build took my 12 year old a couple days, working for 2-3 hours each time. He didn't rush to build it, so I'm sure it could be built quicker. The features of the built ship are pretty awesome! Our favorite parts were the sail of the ship and the working cannons! They actually shoot little cannonballs out of them, my boys thought this was so cool. The pirate ship comes with a few different Lego mini figures and an awesome shark with working jaws! This has by far been my sons favorite LEGO build he has done.
This is a really good ship. I think it could have done with a few more minifigures – three plus a skeleton isn't enough to man a ship, but it is a Creator set, which tends to go light on the minifigures anyway. If you see this on shelves, grab it. It's absolutely worth it, and that's just for one build. The other two look pretty great too.
The Pirate Ship (31109) is a great set. You get three nice looking builds. However, most importantly you get an amazing pirate ship. Additionally, the set is a good value even at full price. I have some minor issues with certain design choices, but the overall look and feel of the ship overrides those. The only major downside to the Pirate Ship is that you do not get enough Minifigures for a set of this size. There are no female pirates either.
It would have been great to have a few more minifigures to create more play and imagination, but that's something that isn't a deal-breaker for sure. If I dare say, it certainly fits right squarely into the Classic Pirates theme with a revived and modern look and design, as it has kept true to being ‘generic' and non-IP or movie related. If you're not running to the LEGO store right now (okay, perhaps surfing to the online store), what are you waiting for?
Don't let the Creator branding fool you, this is an awesome vessel, easily on a par with the best Pirate ships LEGO has produced.
If it hadn't been for the launch of 21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay earlier this year, this would have completely delighted LEGO Pirates fans. As it stands though, it is the second best sea-faring vessel released in 2020. While 21322 offers a more nostalgic experience, 31109 Pirate Ship offers something unique thanks to its more traditional brick-built methodology, and is therefore worthy of being in every buccaneer's collection – as long as they already own 21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay.
