OK, this is what a Lego pirate looks like. Pirate hat, peg-leg, maybe a musket or sabre.
2. How did this happen?!
I guess that only a designer for a cheap knockoff brand operates under such a complete lack of oversight that they can get away with something so amazing.
Or the marketing department vetoed the new Space Opera brand at the last minute, after production already began.
3. How is Lego still in business when the competition is producing stuff this awesome?!
I have no answer for this one.
