Does this mean we can finally get a legitimate damned Pirates or Castle theme? One that won't last one wave?

Same.

I'm honestly not sure why Lego doesn't keep a selection of pirates/medieval stuff always available. To cut costs on 'off' years they could just merge the themes into one, call it 'adventures in the past' or some shit and keep the number of sets small.

probly because Lego doesn't make as much money on nostalgia

there's a pirates chess set out right now for pirate lovers to get their fix on

Love that treesuit! Gonna have to see if I can scrounge up the money for that set, and a few others from the City range next year. :)
