I have a question about the old Lego set 6285 or 10040 Black Seas Barracuda. I was too young to buy this set when it came out for the Legends series. I was wondering what would be considered a good price for this set and also if this set is worth paying the extra money since it isn’t available in any stores.

Dear Forrest,

A complete copy of the Black Seas Barracuda in very good condition with instructions is easily worth $100 USD.  If you want the box as well, the price could be $20-50 more.

You will also find a number of incomplete ships for sale at much lower prices.  These sets can be completed by without much trouble placing BrickLink orders if the set comes with all of the sails and flags.

Legends sets caused a drop in value of the original sets when they were released.  The prices of these sets have been increasing to pre-legend levels.

The Black Seas Barracuda is the classic Lego Pirates set.  It is what the “Yellow Castle” and “Galaxy Explorer” are to Castle and Space.  I recommend the set to any Lego fan.
