i got this for my b-day. i was pretty happy about it because i love the Pirates films.
here is the back of the box.
and the opened set. you get a LOT of stuff in this.
here is the finished product. like i said. you get a LOT of stuff.
now here are the figs here is [Captian] Jack Sparrow.
that is his scared face.
and here is Scrum. he also appears in the Queen Annes Revenge.
and here is a Zombie.
if you have this character, look closely at the back of his head and youll see a skull.
here is Phillip. he is exclusive to this set. he looks like Loki/Lex Luthor/Bruce Wayne/ shall i go on?
here is his angry face.
here is Syrena.
here is her gill face. a little freaky...
here is Tamara. note to LEGO: she is not named ''Mermaid''.
and her scary gill face.
now here is all the other junk included in this set. on the box this stuff makes the lighthouse look like a minor build.
here is a boat. its actually pretty cool.
here is a net. im always happy to get a net.
and the ever so important anchor.
here is the main build. pretty cool huh? i bet 25% of the consumers of this set think this is a pirate fort.
it can [not so] easily split apart using those tube pieces.
here is one part. you can make Tamara pull the stick which is kind of suicide cause of water pollution.
here is the main room. the lighthouse. it can strangely self destruct into 4 chunks. its not a pain to fix. its built in a way so you just lie down the pieces. here is a demonstration: http://www.flickr.com/photos/76817299@N04/7783223972/in/photostream/
now for a tour of the building using the elevator [not] in the set. here is floor one. the confrence room.
floor two. the car driving simulator or whatever it is.
floor 3. the beacon/light-up brick. i hope you enjoied set tours with Commander Vargus.
here is a shed. not much here.
here is the net cannon room.
and there is another function here. it fires a net cannon [duh].

verdict: overall, its a good set. its got some great parts but could use less stickering. the functions are decent but the self destruct button is to Dr. Doofenshmirtz [Phineas and Ferb reference]. the price is decent but $10 cheaper would be alot better.
