Good pics, MC! I want this set sooo bad. The wings on the angel's back look a bit too small compared to the actual movie, but that's a minor flaw in an otherwise great looking set.

Oh, yeah, I'm gonna use that head for a SW Utapau Pau'an. :|~

One more question: How many cannons does it have? Just two?

Sadly it only comes with two cannons, but it has 6 cannon bays & shutters.

Why does LEGO always have to do that? Seems like every ship ever made does not include the correct number of cannons.

Seems weird to me too. My pirate Bounty ship I added the missing cannons for effect, these are the steel so they'll be a little harder to match up.

Exactly what I was thinking. In fact I think both Davy Jones and Maccus have decent zombie heads.

Back on topic: Thanks for putting this up mC! I am not a fan of pirates or Pirates of the Caribbean really but I have been kicking around the idea of getting this set. This has just about decided it for me.
