If you’ve been watching the US version of LEGO Masters this year, you’ll know the importance that LEGO designers and competition judges Amy Corbett and Jamie Berard place on telling a LEGO story. And Pirates of Barracuda Bay has an incredible story to tell.

Apparently the classic LEGO Pirates ship from 1989, the Black Seas Barracuda, was lost at sea more than 30 years ago. We find out that the ship was wrecked on a deserted island, where it broke apart into several sections. Captain Redbeard is the leader of the 8 minifigures who now call the shipwreck home.

With the Pirates of Barracuda Bay, you can convert the shipwreck back into a modern version of the classic pirate ship. The island also converts into two separate islands. The massive set measures 23” (59cm) high, 25” (64cm) wide, and 12” (32cm) deep.
