LEGO® Pirates minifigures
LEGO® Pirates has been around since 1989 and was the fourth theme LEGO® launched after Space, Castle and the City theme. For this theme a lot of new parts were created such as weapons but also animals, for example a shark, a monkey and parrots. The LEGO® Pirates minifigures were the first to get more detail than the traditional head with two dots for eyes and a smile, as many of them had a variety of different printed features including eye patches, facial hair and feminine makeup. Only a few minifigures in Lego Pirates used the traditional face of two eyes and a smile; the soldier of the Imperial Soldiers and Imperial Guards, the Imperial Soldiers sailor (found only in 6274 Caribbean Clipper), and the young pirate Bo'Sun Will. The storyline is set in the 18th century, where pirates were looking for buried treasure because the doubloons (Spanish gold coins) belong to their ancestors, but the colonists discovered the treasure first and claimed it, leading to conflict. The governor of the colony was forced to fortify the settlements and tried to hide the treasure in his main fort. The pirates were led by Captain Redbeard, identified by his black bicorne hat, left eye patch, a wooden leg and a hook where his left hand was. In addition, his crew consisted of First Mate Rummy and young Bo'Sun Will. Another pirate leader was Captain Ironhook, who is represented as a rival of Redbeard both minifigures looked alike, except that Ironhook had a tattered shirt. Their emblem was the Jolly Roger, a black flag with the skull and crossbones. set number 6285 Black Seas Barracuda was their first pirate ship, while set number 6270 Forbidden Island was their original hideout, both released in 1989.
The pirates' opponents were the Imperial soldiers led by Governor Broadside and his sub-commander Lieutenant de Martinet. These blue-coated troops were based on the French navy and marines of the colonial era and the Napoleonic wars. From 1992-1993, the Imperial Soldiers were gradually replaced by the red-coated Imperial Guards led by Admiral Woodside. The smaller Imperial Soldiers sets that remained on sale until the end of 1993 were considered part of the Guards, partly as substitutes because only two catalog sets for the Guards were released after 1992. The minifigures of the Soldiers and Guards were very similar except for a palette change of uniforms and facial expressions. Both the Imperial Soldiers and Imperial Guards used two crossed cannons under a crown as their emblem, although the Soldiers' blue flag resembled the Quebec Flag while the Guards had three thick red horizontal stripes. The Imperial Guards were reintroduced in 2009-2010, and the Imperial Soldiers in 2015. A new faction, the Islanders, was released in 1994. This led to Lego having three factions in 1994 and 1995, with the Pirates taking on the Imperial Guards on the high seas and interfering with the Islanders as they searched for treasure. In 1996, Lego changed the entire Pirate Line, giving the Pirate minifigures new faces, and making them Spanish. The Imperial Guards were replaced by the Imperial Armada. 1996 was also the last year for the Islanders, who had seen no new releases since 1994, and their minifigures were not guests in sets from other factions. In 1997, only the Pirates were against the Imperial Armada.
After 1997, LEGO® discontinued the Pirate theme to the shock of fans. The original releases (1989-1991) were retroactively the most nostalgic among Lego Pirates fans because of the sets' design and minute details, which were sacrificed for more playability in later releases, attracting a mixed reception. The changes in Lego's set design direction, not only in LEGO® Pirates but also in their other product lines, have been attributed to the withdrawal by the Lego Group of many LEGO® Designers who had created the sets from the late 1970s to the early 1990s, replacing them with 30 "innovators" who graduated from European design schools across Europe who "knew little specifically about toy design and less about LEGO® building. LEGO® reintroduced Pirates and Imperial Guards in minifigure scale for 2009, including the pirate ship 6243 Brickbeard's Bounty, just in time for the theme's 20th anniversary. However, only one more set was released the following year, the 10210 Imperial Flagship, the largest ship ever released in LEGO® Pirates. After 2010, the revived LEGO® Pirates theme was discontinued to make way for a series of licensed products, LEGO® Pirates of the Caribbean, based on the film series of the same name.In 2015, LEGO® reintroduced the theme again briefly with Pirates and Imperial Soldiers, including the pirate ship 70413 The Brick Bounty. In 2020, the 30th LEGO® Ideas set 21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay was released, which can be built as both an island pirate ship and the pirate ship due to its modular design.
