POTC4 Action Figures

8 posts in this topic

Hey, I saw the new action figs for POTC4 in Wally World yesterday. They have large scale (about 8" I'd guess) and small (about 3"). The large figures looked pretty nice - Jack, Gibbs, Blackbeard, Barbossa and Angelica. I picked up Gibbs as he was the best of the lot IMO. (Barbossa has a truly odd-looking hat that actually made me laugh when I saw it.)

The little figures had some sort of feature where if you got them wet or something the faces turned white and ghostly-looking. I forget what they called it. There were also some mini-packs with a figure and several large accessories. I believe there were 2 different kinds: one with blackbeard and two cannon and another with Jack and...something. I forget. Oh, and there was a playset for the small figures of the QAR. It also said something about the ghostly feature on it. If I see them again, I'll make a note of what it is.

Hmmm... shall have to go take a look. I never really venture into the toy section eventhough my nieces often do. Odd, isn't it?

LOL... Poor Barbossa.

Have you ever seen the older more cartoon looking figures by Zizzile? Figures for POTC 3? They look closer to the cartoon and young adult book versions of the main characters.

I've only seen the ones at Walmart but am I the only one whose a little disappointed in the craftsmanship of the action figures this time around? They just looked poorly made and the painting was just as mundane. Also, it looks like on the top of Blackbeards hat there is an iron cross looking logo. Is it supposed to be a star or a compass rose of some kind? Never really seen anyone decorate the top of a tricorn before. At least to me the whole Blackbeard outfit looks a little to "Hot Topic" for my taste. Still can't wait to see the movie though!

I have a Jack, Barbossa, Angelica, and Blackbeard. I'm wanting a Serena one, but I haven't seen any.

I thought Zizzle would be releasing figures for On Stranger Tides.

Those that you speak of are by Jakks Pacific. Zizzle and NECA no longer are licensed. Jakks Pacific has the license now.

Hot Toys will be making 4 figures. Jack Sparrow, Angelica

and speculation points to Blackbeard, the 4th is unknown

What's amazing is that she will come with the pair of chalices as bonus accessory! Fans, please don't miss it!

What's more, we are pleased to let you know that the smiley face, which is another interchangeable face of Captain Jack Sparrow, will be coming up soon! We will definitely keep our fans posted. Please stay tuned!

I combined the two topics on the POTC4 figures since we really only need one.

That Unison figure is amazing in detail. However, the cheapest I found it for pre-order was here at a measly $262 (plus shipping). They should make a Barbossa too - I know several people who would probably buy that.
