LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Minifigures - Captain Jack Sparrow


Jack Sparrow will be appearing in all of the upcoming LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean sets due in May...and then some. We will refer to this version as 'Captain' Jack given he's wearing his tricorne hat and coat.

Captain Jack Sparrow is exclusive to Whitecap Bay (4192), London Escape (4193), and Queen Anne's Revenge (4195).

Parts and Accessories
Captain Jack may be composed of as many as four or five different parts depending upon the design of the tricorne hat - hat and/or hair piece, head, torso, and legs.

As we just mentioned, the tricorne hat may be a soft plastic piece that fits over the 'standard' Jack Sparrow hair piece. The hair piece features a red bandanna and various trinkets in Jack's black hair. If the part is a singular piece, then it will still be spectacular nonetheless. One piece or two these are all new parts for the LEGO universe.

The heads are where many of the Captain Jack minifigures are differentiated. The head for this figure is dual-sided with a 'smirk' on one side and a worried expression on the other. As with many of the licensed themes the head color is light flesh.

The torso and arms are reddish brown with light flesh hands. The print on the torso resembles Jack's leather coat with the addition of a belt and striped sash. It is not known if there will be back printing on the torso.

The legs and hips are brown with print continuing the coattails and sash design that began on the torso.

The accessory shown with this figure is the standard Pirate cutlass that has appeared in LEGO Pirates sets for some time. Light blueish gray, however, is a new color for this part. There is also a 1x1 tile with a compass print that's seen with Jack in many of the sets.

I've been both amazed and amused at how well TLG captured the character's likeness in minifigure form. There's not much else they could have done to match the source material.

Army Building Potential
The ABP for this minifigure is low. There is only one Captain Jack...  

The Big Draw
If the tricorne hat is a separate part which fits over the hair piece, it will likely be a very desirable element. To date you have had to make a make a choice between head gear or hair.

The torso and leg assembly combo could also be desirable for Pirate fans, as well.

  1. The hairpiece cannot be sepparated from the hat. It's one piece.
