LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Black Pearl 4184
The Lego Pirates of the Caribbean Black Pearl 4184 is the perfect gift this year for anyone who is a fan of the movie "Pirates of the Caribbean."
Although the age range on the LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Black Pearl building set states 8-14 years, there are many adult LEGO fanatics who would love to add this to their collection. With 804 separate pieces of building detail, and six included mini-figures, this will provide lots of play for young and old alike.
Recreating The Adventures
Fans of the Pirates of the Caribbean series of movies will instantly recognize the legendary Black Pearl, which plays a large part in Captain Jack Sparrow’s adventures on the high seas. Standing a full 20 inches tall, the completed LEGO build is impressive as a play model for your children to recreate the swashbuckling adventures of the nefarious pirate and his crew, but it’s equally stunning on display on a shelf. The six fully poseable mini-figs which include some of the movie’s most-loved characters - Jack Sparrow, Will Turner, Davy Jones, Joshamee Gibbs, Maccus, and Bootstrap Bill - can be placed around the ship to recreate your favorite scene from the film - or you can create brand-new scenes from inside your imagination.
Every LEGO fan knows that attention to detail is paramount, and this set does not disappoint. Some of the remarkable features include the full cloth sails that add an air of realism to the model, along with the famous figurehead on the bowsprit of the ship. And what pirate ship would be complete without a full complement of cannons ranged on either side of the ship? Classic LEGO ingenuity is present in the Pirates of the Caribbean Black Pearl model, with integrated, removable panels that allow access to the captain’s quarters in the belly of the ship, and the anchor can be weighed to safely secure the Black Pearl in any port of call.
The hull of the ship, comprised of most of the 804 pieces in the set, stays true to form and accurately represents the strakes along the sides of the hull as would be found on a real sailing ship. The stern is fully decorated in the classic galleon style, with cathedral windows and lit by tiny gas lanterns port and starboard. The ship’s rigging, stays, and mast are also remarkably detailed; you can tell that the LEGO designers behind this model took their time to get the nautical details just right.
The full size of this model - almost two feet long when fully assembled - presents a challenging yet satisfying build for intermediate and advanced builders; the classic step-by-step instruction booklets guide you through the construction of the LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Black Pearl - raised from the depths of the ocean to sail the seven seas again!
