Recommendation: meh 8 / 10 by dr_spock

There is something fun shooting LEGO 1x1 cylinder bricks around with a spring loaded cannon trying to hit the shipwreck hull and that feeling when it is on target. This set certainly provides that kind of play. Along with the extra accessories and weapons, you can let your play imagination go wild.

I purchased this set as a gift for a 6 year old who specifically asked for "Lego Pirate" stuff. I wasn't finding much in our local stores, so I was happy to find this set online. I was a little taken aback by how small the set is for the price (the box is about 6" X 6"), but my friends are telling me that "Lego is expensive" so I guess that's par for the course.

Worth picking up for the extra bits and pieces, but I wouldn't go out of my way to find it!

Overall, set is not bad, but still for what it offers, its price should be a little bit lower.
