This is a 756 piece Lego build.

It contains 9 mini figures:

- Aragorn - 2 faced - good torso printing - sword - this is the same as "Attack on Weathertop", etc;

- Gimli - 2 faced - red shirt which is nicely decorated as is his helmet but the torso decoration is hidden by the beard - comes with an axe - it is the exact same piece that you get in the amazing "Mines of Moria" set, the "Council of Elrond" set, and others;

- Legolas - 2 faced - good torso printing - bow and arrow - same as "Mines of Moria", etc;

- ghost 1 - 2 faced - nice body printing (back, torso and legs) - sword, green cloak and helmet;

- ghost 2 - 2 faced - same faces as "ghost 1" - different body printing (torso) - sword, green cloak and helmet;

- King of the dead - 2 faced - different faces to the ghosts - different printing on the torso - red cloak and green crown-helmet;

- orc 1 - nice torso printing and an axe;

- orc 2 - same torso printing as "orc 1" but has armour and a sword;

- pirate - 2 faced - rumour has it that this piece is actually Peter Jackson - good body printing and is armed with a chain weapon and the highly lethal, erm, loaf of bread!

* The faces on the 3 ghosts are glow in the dark.

The pirate ship appears in the Return of the King. The scene depicted is where the Orcs are waiting at the arranged landing point for the pirates - and they get a nasty surprise.

There is an orc catapult for the 2 orcs to arm and fire it.

The pirate ship is amazing. It is in full sail and the sails have lined patterning on them, but only on one side with is a disappointment as it means that you can only display it from left to right. There are printed (not stickered) shields on both sides at the front and the back of the ship.

The detailing is astonishing and really does look like the ship in the film.

The anchor winch is interactive and raises and lowers twin anchors. There are also interactive finger missiles (well it apparently can't be a Lego set without a finger missile) and some (non-interactive) crossbows - crossbows and finger missiles are both positional, as are the wing shaped flaps on the side of the ship.

There is a cabin beneath the wheel deck where the ship's (white) cat sleeps, though it could be a rat. This cabin also forms the jail where the pirate prisoner can be locked up.

Inside the crate on the ship's deck you get 2 map squares - a general coastal one and one of Gondor.

At an RRP of 89.99 with 756 pieces it works out at 11.9 pence per piece - but the ship is a massive 60 cm long by 36 cm high and you do get the 9 mini figures (3 that glow in the dark) so for me (a Tolkien fan since I was 15) it was well worth the money to have this iconic scene in my collection.

At the moment, whenever I enquire what my grandsons would like for their birthdays or Christmas, the answer comes back, LEGO !!!
One of their latest collections is the Lord of The Rings range and the pirate ship did not disappoint, but then, being of Lego's constant high standard, I didn't expect it to !

Great model to add to a Lord of the Rings Lego collection, with a nicely detailed ship and 9 minifigures. All the sets in the collection are best when laid out as a large group, but this particular set is actually not bad as a standalone model with great playability. One star off simply because I do think this set is slightly overpriced in value; that being said, Lego has already retired it so it's sure to be very collectible going forward.

This set uses the numbered-bag system, so no piece sorting is required prior to building. There are two booklets of instructions, a few stickers to customize certain bricks, and the sails. This entire build was fairly easy and took less than two hours to complete. It's designated for ages 9-14 but I'm sure kids even a little younger would be successful if they have at least some Lego experience.

The ship looks great when assembled, with lots of neat functional and decorative details. The Peter Jackson pirate is jailed in the lower section, with a rat to keep him company and a loaf of bread for sustenance. Lots of movable features: raise and lower the anchors, spin the Captain's wheel, shoot the "missiles" on the sides of the ship, or use the catapult if you like. NOTE: this ship is not seaworthy, as the hull is made of numerous Lego sections, not a single molded piece.

I love these large kits. The ship is pure magic and all the characters are amazing. Would recommend this as a must addition to any Lego enthusiasts collection..

This is an absolute must have for lego fans and enthusiasts, it is just another part of the lord of the rings lego sets and by far one of the best builds i have done for a long time, it has so much detail and effort put into the design it still amazes me to day day how they have such imaginative minds and come up with these designs. i have got all of the original LOTR lego and just about to go onto The Hobbit side of it, but as always lego is not just designed for kids its for adults too lol.

My 5 year old insisted on this for a Christmas present and I caved in.
Have to admit in the end it was more for me than him. spent all night putting it together.
Was disappointing that some sections were larger than I expected so not a purists choice but then again it is aimed at 9-14 year-olds so I'll have to get the adult version.

Bought as a pressie for a big kid, recipient was very happy, looks great once built, true to the film. Only problem was there were two small pieces missing which almost never happens with Lego but easily ordered through their online site as the manuals give lists and part numbers for all the bricks.

Its absolutely wonderful lego to built and play with. The ship after my son built it we put on display as it looks so cool. There are also many figures to play with and generally I think its good value for money.
