Really great set. Pros Minifigures are great, I like the bluecoats play features are good especially the cannon Pirates boat is Ok cool that you can combine with Soldiers Outpost like the little jail cell the crane that carries the treasure Cons the stud shooter on the top of the fort is facing up the size of the set that's my review

Not a huge rating overall, but still a fun one to build, and one that kids will most likely enjoy.

While it is not a bad set, I am a bit underwhelmed. However this set is meant to be combined with 70410 making the fort a bit bigger. Unfortunately I still think that the pirates' hideouts are far more appealing especially when combined. Meanwhile, my son, who is four, has been making good use of the jail, filling it with bad guys and misbehaving soldiers.

I ended up liking this set more than I thought I would. It doesn't quite have as many pieces as I would expect, but they come together to build a large enough fort that looks pretty good, and there are plenty of play features and great figs to go around. It's not a full on pirate ship, but it offers enough of the theme at a decent price to be acceptable.
