The Super Imperial Flagship was conceptualized in 2010 after purchasing 2 sets of 10210. The problem with past sets is that pirates ship is ALWAYS bigger than the good guys. The Imperial Flagship finally corrects this but after building it, 1st there isnt enough cannons, 2nd its just slightly bigger than the Black sea Barracuda (6295). It just has to be bigger therefore by increasing the hull length, a larger ship is formed. Took six months to get it right since a lot of parts were needed but it was finally completed in May 2011. Then in early 2012, the remaining parts were lying around and the idea of build a smaller version was decided. It took less than 2 days for the 2nd one to be built.
