What It Is
What It Is
The fourth film in Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean franchise hits theaters May 20, 2011, and LEGO builders can recreate the action and adventure in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides with new build-and-play scenes inspired by the movie.
The London Escape building set takes the action from the movie and puts it in kids' hands. Captain Jack Sparrow and his right-hand man Joshamee Gibbs have just escaped the hangman's noose when King George's soldiers find them again. Jack and Gibbs run through the busy London streets and hide out in the Captain's Daughter Tavern. With this 463-piece set, kids build the Captain's Daughter Tavern, which comes complete with a hidden exit for sneaking out Jack and Gibbs. The set also includes two buildable carriages, two horses, weapons, and accessories. Minifigures include Jack, Gibbs, a horse coach driver, and two soldiers. The building set also comes with a collectible poster.
Why It’s Fun
LEGO's Pirates of the Caribbean building sets do a great job of capturing the look and feel of the movies and interpreting them into creative building sets. The London Escape set features great detail that adds a lot of value to the play. This set is great for imaginative play, as well.
Who It’s For
The London Escape is for ages 7 and up. You don't have to be familiar with the Pirates movies to enjoy the swashbuckling action of this building set.
What to Be Aware of
It can take a few hours to put together this set, but building is part of the fun of LEGO. Keep the building directions handy as you build.
