Ok, Review time for the Lego POTC Silent Mary Set. This set is massive! It is way bigger than expected. I didn't go really far into the building process, due to some fine motor skill issues with the hands. I suffer from mild cerebral palsy, and things like putting stickers on perfectly, or putting a piece on directly straight, is a really hard challenge for me. I did a review for a tie fighter set that I got as well, but that was received damaged and may have to send back. All in all, if you are a fan of the series, a fan of lego, a fan of huge, heavy sets, and really detailed work, then I urge you to get this. It is really remarkable the design how they are able to pull this off and I can't say enough, how beautiful videos and pictures I have seen of this, but due to again my disability, I was unable to complete it. Definitely recommend for all ages, even adults looking for a challenge
The box does not do this justice it took me roughly 5hrs to build with breaks in between. It's easily value for money. One of the best things I've ever built from Lego
Overall, the LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales The Silent Mary (71042) is a pretty cool build but I will say that it might disappoint some fans, especially the ones that collect ships. The Silent Mary is a ghost ship in the movie and I applaud LEGO for producing something that goes against the grain.
71042 Silent Mary was reviewed in issue 32 of Blocks Magazine.
71042 Silent Mary is a truly spectacular model for display and achieves a feat which few other sets can boast. It is not immediately apparent that the ship is made from LEGO when viewed from a distance and its curving form seems to defy the typical rectilinear shapes which are imposed by LEGO bricks. The price of £179.99 or $199.99 seems reasonable and the ship is packed with elements of various colours but they strike a perfect balance, with golden highlights reflecting the proud history of the Silent Mary while sand green pieces reveal its current state of dilapidation.
The build itself was fun and satisfying mainly because there are lots of lovely decorative details and a definite lack of repetition. In fact, I was caught out a couple of times free-styling when I thought I was repeating a pattern of stud or telescope placements, only to realise that each side was unique. The final model is certainly eye-catching and beautiful in a macabre way, but I do wonder about its ability to stand up to play. Moving it from one location to another meant careful hand placement due to the lack of suitable safe grab points. With the hull closed and the stand in place, this is certainly worthy of a position on display, but I imagine the average playful youngster could spend a lot of time putting parts back on after they ping off the hull.
While I would have liked if there were a bit more play features like the captain's quarters or a sub level below deck but I understand that with the hull-less design, some things had to be sacrificed. The Silent Mary is a gorgeous piece to display in any collection and it can hold its' own when placed next to your Imperial Flagship, Queen Anne's Revenge or Black Pearl. If only we could also get the Flying Dutchman to complete the collection…
