It looks like there are box art images of the upcoming LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean The Silent Mary (71042) courtesy of Minifigure Price Guide. The image is kind of dark but you can still see that the design of it is ominous and the ship is based on the new one captained by Armando Salazar in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. You can check out more images of the set over in the announcement post. The Silent Mary will be available for VIP members starting on March 17 and April 1 for the general public and will retail for $199.99.
