The Ghost Ship, captained by the nefarious ghost pirate Salazar (played by Javier Bardem) has received a mixed reception from LEGO fans, with some loving the skeletal ghost ship look, and the others decrying the fact that it’s not a “real” pirate ship.
I happen to fall in the former camp, and was more than excited to purchase this set in anticipation for a full-blown review. I do have my reservations about this set, but I’m always up to the task of a challenging review.
LEGO have released a wealth of new hi-res photos of 71042 The Silent Mary, which includes the box art as well as a closer look at the awesome new LEGO Zombie Sharks included in the set which I’m super excited about.
You can check out the new photos below.
