One of the overarching trends of the past five years has undoubtedly been the ’80s and ’90s. A sense of nostalgia infiltrated fashion, gaming and even homewares, and still today, we are referencing the good old days. LEGO has always been one of those revered toys as children and even as an adult is it still fun to sit and play with tiny blocks. In perfect timing for days spent in self-isolation, the toy company is bringing back one of its most coveted sets for a modern revival.
First released in 1989, the Black Seas Barracuda is still one of the most popular versions from the Danish company. With the help from the LEGO Ideas initiative which allows fans to submit new ideas, the forthcoming release has fused Black Seas Barracuda with the Pirates of Barracuda Bay build. The result is a 2,545-piece set and includes eight pirate figurines, two skeleton figurines as well a range of animals. There are various iterations to the set such as rearranging the ship and island.
For a visit to the past and perhaps even something to do in your spare time, the LEGO Ideas Pirates of Barracuda Bay is slated to release on April 1, priced at $300 AUD.
