Jack Sparrow

Just when you thought you'd completed your Pirates of the Caribbean minifig collection, Brickset member keithkram uncovers yet another PotC polybag containing Jack Sparrow with a different head.

Keith has some listed in his BrickLink store so if you're a PotC completest, head on over and grab one.

@K-nut: He seems to have a white face. :)

Well the minifig looks quite boring... why does the bag image (background) have to be the most exciting part?

Those poly prices are hilarious. Thanks for the laugh. I needed that :)

Another one? I still haven't found the first polybag in stores. I only want 1 Jack Sparrow mini-figure from the POTC theme. I'm not interested in the rest of the theme and have no interest in spending $15 to get the cheapest set just to get a mini-figure.

That Jack Sparrow is a must have for me. Where did this one come out at? Is it another UK promo like 2 of the other Pirates Of The Caribbean Poly Bags? Just Curious.

I wish this one would come out in my area. It would be a nice, inexpensive way of getting a Jack Sparrow minifigure with his hat.

Oh wow amazing set... Of course, only good for people who don't collect POTC.

Someone would have to be crazy to pay 30 bucks for a minifigure

How is it any different?

$30? No thanks.

Even though I was a Harry Potter completest, I never bought polys. They're ridiculous!

***Well, I was a completest until 2010. ;-)

Nice!!!! but just 1 minfig without any accessories for $30 seems TOO MUCH. I'll rather buy some other set to build in that case at least I can enjoy building lego.

same seller has germ polybag from the cars series

Jack minifigs from some of the other sets sell pretty cheaply on bricklink, if you just want a jack, such as the one from Captain's cabin. But yeah, crazy prices for these, but of course that's not TLG's pricing, just the re-sellers price. I don't blame them for trying to sell them at that price, it's business after all.

Not to offend anyone, but even if this seller is the only one for now to sell this set, just giving the news is OK, but linking to the store seems a bit too much given the SCANDALOUS PRICES.

It looks like the Jack Sparrow from Captain's Cabin just with the brown hat.

I can barely tell a difference between heads.

To me, it looks like the head is the same, but his torso/leg printing has a blue cloak over everything (but under the belt). The older Jack minifig with a tricorne has a brown cloak on.

This really seems like a money grab on TLC's part. But of course I'll buy into it; I did get the voodoo polybag after all.

I really wish they would add a bit more variety to this theme. Everyone likes Jack Sparrow, but how about some bad guy crew members for the QAR, or an undead monkey in a brick-built cage, or something like that?

Eh....... Everything in his store is well overpriced.

30$ dollars for a different head??No thank you.

Let's cut Keith some slack. We don't know how much he paid for them and given they are in short supply at the moment it's a 'seller's market' so he can charge what he thinks the market will bear. Much like the LEGO company, in fact.

If it's too much for you, don't buy one, wait until they become more readily available.

It's not true that everything in Keith's Bricklink store is overpriced. Some of his stock is competitively priced. But also Keith has a lot of old and rare Lego taken from sets that he has parted out. Old Lego parts and minifigs handled only for sorting frequently command premium prices. Keith will only charge what the market will bear otherwise he would never sell any Lego. His Bricklink feedback suggests that people are happy to pay his prices for guaranteed quality Lego despatched quickly using quality packaging materials. I for one have placed at least 25 orders in his store over the years and received perfect Lego every time.

It is difficult to know when and where polybag sets will be released and quite often they never appear in many countries. Collectors who must have every set released in a particular theme may be prepared to pay high prices because that is their hobby. Keith won't price a set if he didn't believe it would sell at that price.

Can't be that over priced, it looks like he's sold 2 already! Good luck to the guy. If there wasn't buyers willing to pay prices like these there would be a lot of people on here struggling to fund their lego hobby or make a living.

Well, the fact that there is buyers paying does not mean that the price is fair, but I guess this is an endless discussion.
My point was more that Brickset should share news and even bargains. But I was surprised to see this kind of advertising in this news, given the price was not a bargain. With the set number, people wanting to buy it could just check BL or eBay or whatever by themselves and decide what to do.
But once again, it's just my point of view and I don't intend to bug anyone. Let's focus on the set itself ...

A promo like this will shortly become as available as the other bagged promos IMO. Probably something to do with the release of a new game or the DVD of POTC4.

Don't like the price at one store?

Wait...
