Top 10 Biggest Pirates Sets

The Pirate week finale is here. This themed week ends with a look at the top 10 biggest pirates sets produced by the LEGO® Group! A while back, I looked at the biggest ships ever produced. However, the focus of that list was not the pirates theme (click here to view it). Additionally, it covered…

Classic Pirate Minifigure (5003082) Review

What?!? Two pirate set reviews in one week. How can that be? It’s pirate week, that’s how! Earlier this week, True North Bricks brought you the pre-release review of the Pirates of Barracuda Bay.
