Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales – Silent Mary Ghost Ship Playset

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales LEGO Pirate Ship (ages 4+)

During the toy fair in New York this year (2017), we got to see many amazing toys – some of them really caught our eye. Since we are a major Lego fan (a lot of Lego stuff was introduced), the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Lego Pirate Ship (71042 Silent Mary) really stood out from the crowd for us. This is the fifth installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Lego Pirate Ship is set to release on May 26, 2017.

Pieces
Looking at all of the pieces, you are going to have a whole lot of fun when it comes time to put Silent Mary together. This set has a total of 2,294 pieces. This is a pretty big ship, but it’s not the biggest ship Lego has ever made. It does, however, impressively measure 18 inches in height, 27 inches long and 8 inches wide. With the main mast collapsed, she’s a little over 14 inches. To give you a comparison, the largest Lego ship is the 10210 Imperial Flagship – it measures 29.5 inches long and 23.6 inches tall.

The Box and Instructions
Silent Mary will arrive in a dark and intimidating box – there’s no bright colors standing out on this set. On the front of the box, you’ll see a picture of Silent Mary’s bow opening up with Captain Jack Sparrow and the crew looking into their row boat, surrounded by a pool of ghost sharks.
One thing we noticed with this set is that it doesn’t have any stickers, which is weird, because most Lego sets come with stickers. There’s not many printed parts either. If you’re not a big sticker fan though, you’re going to be happy that it’s lacking stickers because those are always tedious when it comes to applying them.
In the box, you’re going to find sixteen bags – those contain the part you need. We personally like how Lego puts their parts in bags, because when it comes to building, you have got to stay organized, otherwise, you’re going to end up with one big headache. There’s even a bag that contains the fabric sails that are paced with a cardboard backing in order to make sure they stay in good condition.
As far as the instructions go – there’s a book that contains a total of 263-pages. Don’t worry, because the instructions are well laid out and easy to follow – Lego always does a good job with their instructions. When you open up the instruction book, you’ll find a short bio for the mini figures as well as an image of the character from the movie.

Mini Figures
The Silent Mary contains a total of eight mini figures. You will have the following mini figures:
* Henry
* Captain Jack Sparrow
* Carina
* Captain Salazar
* Lieutenant Lesaro
* Officer Santos
* Officer Magda
* Silent Mary Masthead

The ghost pirates are some of the coolest mini figures we have seen in quite some time. Both Officer Santos and Captain Salazar have transparent heads. Captain Salazar has a neat looking printed outfit and is wearing black epaulettes to complete his look.

Construction
The first thing you’re going to be putting together is the little row boat. It contains a simple seat and a lantern along with a couple of oars. When it comes to putting the big ship together, you’ll have some pretty amazing Technic builds to look forward to. Overall, there are some points that will be a bit tricky, but with a little bit of time, you’ll get past it.

Conclusion
If you’re a Lego fan and you enjoy Pirates of the Caribbean, then this would be a great build for you. This build will bring you hours of time and once it is all put together, you can proudly display it on your shelf.
