It looks good, but is substantially different to the submission. I think it is
a great set but not really an Ideas set any more.

I don't think I'll build it, but it IS pretty neat and I love that you
can build the ship.

Really awesome set. Can't exactly blame them for modifying the original idea
as it would have been way too big, expensive, and take too long to build for
relatively fewer details (great MOC though).

Let's see if I will be able to get my hands on this for a good price. If
so I will buy 20 and will have enough reddish brown in stock for a long time

By the way it is more than 12 times as big as the "same" set from 1996

 
Set No: 6296  Name: Shipwreck Island
* 
6296-1 (Inv) Shipwreck Island
201 Parts, 4 Minifigs, 1996
Sets: Pirates: Pirates I

That set always fascinated me as a kid. Never actually had it though

This would have been a great set to revive the pirates line. With that in mind,
I think it deviates too much from the original submission.

Both disappointing and cool. I might buy it, though I really just wanted the
pirate's bay set.
