From named characters with unique face prints to plenty of new pieces and a story expertly integrated into the design and marketing of the sets, Pirates paved the way for a lot of what the resulting three decades have offered.
Issue 10 sees Brick Fanatics Magazine sit down with the lead designer who worked on Pirates, bringing to life a number of your childhood classics, including 6285 Black Seas Barracuda. From an era at the LEGO Group very different to today, find out what it meant to be a LEGO designer in 1989, alongside some exclusively produced imagery inspired by Pirates.
