LEGO Silent Mary Ghost Ship Kit
The LEGO Silent Mary is one of this year's amazing new toys. The Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Ghost Ship is a really cool addition to LEGO's range, and is very well designed.
What is Silent Mary?
Once a powerful pirate hunter of the Spanish Navy she was lost in the supernatural ‘Devil’s Triangle’. Now she’s a rotted out, decaying ghost ship, captained by the long-dead Armando Salazar and his undead crew. They've been looking for Captain Jack Sparrow!
Whilst this is quite a big ship kit it's not the largest made by Lego. It is impressive though, measuring 18 inches in height, 26 inches in length and 8 inches wide when assembled. When the main mast is collapsed, she’s a little over 14 inches wide.
This is a HUGE kit - 2,294 pieces plus minifigures and accessory elements - that builds into an impressive opening skeleton hulk.
When fully assembled the bow section is hinged so game can switch from sailing mode to attack mode. The bow lifts up and stays in place, and the sides fold out just like in the movie.
There's a movable rudder and the main mast is collapsible. Gun port covers open and cannon barrels can be elevated. Detail on the port and starboard sides is different as befits a ship that was wrecked at sea.
The kit includes eight nicely detailed Minifigures - Captain Jack Sparrow, Henry, Captain Salazar, Carina, Lieutenant Lesaro, Officer Santos, Officer Magda, Silent Mary Masthead plus 2 detachable ghost sharks.
The ghost pirates minifigs are pretty cool - Captain Salazar and Officer Santos have transparent heads. Captain Salazar has a neat looking printed outfit and is wearing black epaulettes to complete his look.
The box contains sixteen bags of parts. This helps to keep your construction of the kit organized. There's also a 263 page, easy-to-follow and well laid out instruction book. This includes a short bio for the minifigs.

Construction will be a bit challenging, but nothing any self-respecting LEGO fan can't overcome
There's hours of fun to be enjoyed by any fan of Pirates of the Caribbean with this LEGO Silent Mary kit. It is probably best used as a static display model when finished rather than used in a playable sense. But it is awesome!
