LEGO Ideas of the Week: Skull Cove. RedBeard's Return!

Skull Cove: Redbeard’s Return.

Captain Roger Redbeard once terrified the seas with his crew aboard the The Black Seas Barracuda but he has not been seen on the high seas for over a decade. Nobody knows exactly what happened to him, many assumed he finally met a bitter end, perhaps finally caught by the Imperials…some claim he retired and lives quietly on his untold riches.

His closest friends and allies however know the truth.

LEGO Ideas of the Week: Skull Cove. RedBeard's Return!

Redbeard, surrounded by his loyal crew, still rules the great pirate fleet, a shadow empire, from the security of his stronghold, Skull Cove.

This set seeks to create a top of the line pirate stronghold operated by a cadre of pirates inspired by classic LEGO pirates.

The re-imagined pirates includes the classic figures: Captain Roger Redbeard, Rummy, Anne, and “Steve.”

The Crew

Captain Rodger Redbeard.
In the passing years the Captain’s beard has grown and streaks of white have crept into it. He may not be as spry as he once was, but he is as cunning and quick witted as ever, coordinating strikes against the merchant lanes while continuing to foil the Imperials.

First Mate Rummy.
Rummy has long been Redbeard’s right hand man. Now he operates the ingenious communication network that keeps Redbeard’s pirate armada working in concert.

Rummy is also a legendary spotter and look out. He can count the number of cannons on a ship before most of the crew can even see its sails.

Anne has served as Redbeards Quartermaster, leading countless boarding actions upon ships beset by the Black Seas Barracuda. She is an expert marksman and sword fighter, equally at home on the deck or in the ropes.

Steve is a bit of a mysterious wild card, coming and going as he pleases. The crew is not even certain if “Steve” is his real name.

His unequaled skill as an artillerist however has earned him a permanent opening as the master gunner in Redbeard’s ranks. On many occasions the astounding accuracy of his cannons has spelled the difference between victory and defeat.
