I remember, as a kid, a heck of a lot of lego that I wanted to have but couldn't convince Mum to buy for me. And I remember it well. There was (among others) pirate lego, space lego, and medieval lego.
Nowadays, there isn't pirate lego: there's Pirates of the Caribbean lego.
The difference is as follows.
Buy a pirate ship, filled with exciting pirates!
Buy a teeny rowboat, with one pirate and a matching shark!
Or a treasure chest, and three pirates with spades!
Or a dungeon, with skeleton pirate (still with piratey hat)!
Get two pirate captains (identifiable by the big feathers on their hats) to fight sea battles!
Pirates of the Caribbean Lego!
Buy the scene on the island, with Captain Jack Sparrow and Elizabeth Swann, drinking rum!
Buy the scene at the mill, with Captain Jack Sparrow, Will Turner, and Captain Norrington, all fighting on the big spinny wheel thingy!
Buy the Black Pearl, with Captain Jack Sparrow and his crew!
Buy the Navy ship, with Captain Jack Sparrow and Will Turner, off to save Elizabeth Swann! (Elizabeth not included.)
Buy the wedding scene, with Elizabeth Swann and Will Turner!
If I were to buy lots of Pirate Lego, I'd end up with a lot of fun and exciting pirates. If I were to buy the Pirates of the Caribbean Lego, I'd end up with no sharks, no row boats, no treasure, no generic pirates... and goodness knows how many identical Jack Sparrows.
I just want to buy generic fun lego! What's so wrong with that?
