Lego Pirates Themed Sets
The popular Lego pirate themed sets were first launched in 1989. These early Lego Pirate Sets included the first minfigs minus the traditional head and only had 2 dots for eyes and a drawn smile. The features of these pirate minfigures varied from ones that had eye patches on, to some that included hair and beards and even a black pirates head rag. Alongside these sets, blue coated Imperial Soldiers were also released to “fight” against the plundering sea pirates.
1997 saw the release of the last few Lego Pirate Sets. In the years to come, a few other sets were re-released and the same pirate theme can also be seen in some Duplo sets. A favorite Lego’s ships pirate is Captain Redbeard, also known as Captain Roger. He was introduced in 1889 and became one of Legos most popular characters together with his first mate and confidant, Rummy.
