LEGO Icons Eldorado Fortress (10320) Set

Long before LEGO started securing licenses from pop culture entertainment properties – which began with Star Wars in 1999, btw – original theme sets were kind of what LEGO was known for, especially the castle and pirate sets. Speaking of pirates, LEGO is invoking the nostalgia moments of LEGO fans who grew up with the original pirate set from 1989 with the new LEGO Icons Eldorado Fortress (10320).

The new LEGO Icons Eldorado Fortress set is based on the original LEGO Pirates theme which makes it a reboot. The set’s return is in response to high demand from LEGO fans after fans voted it to the top of the charts in a recent 90th-anniversary vote on LEGO Ideas.

For the uninitiated, the set is also known as Governor’s Fort Sabre, the Eldorado Fortress was a LEGO Pirates set based on Imperial Forts from the Golden Age of the piracy era. Gen-Y/millennials, that would be the real pirates we talking about, not the Pirate Bay, infamous for pirated software, movies, and music.
