Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides series 2 4" Jack Sparrow

"This is without a doubt the worst pirate I have ever seen." 

Not quite. This figure is actually pretty decent. 

This Jack Sparrow figure is from series 2. Identifiable by the long coat he's wearing. I prefer this version for the more complete attire. The head is a bit too big but I'm okay with it. Its got a pretty good likeness, the only thing is that he looks rather bored, or more likely, drunk. His hair is made of soft PVC so you can still turn his head. He's made slightly leaning back which helps depict his mannerism. There's some nice detail on him, like the folds of his clothes and boots. On his belt he's got his compass, his dish cloth and the shrunken head of his mother. One thing which I dislike is that the paint is too clean. It's like he just bought his attire. 

I think he looks better without his hat.

Besides the hat, he's got two pistols and a sword for accessories. The hat could use  some paint to make it look weathered and the pistols could use some bits of silver or gold paint for the metallic areas.

There's a strap for him to carry his sword but he won't be able to put his arm down.

His left hand is open but you can still hook the sword to it. Or if you like, you can have him fire it with his right hand.

The figure has mainly peg and hinged joints. Articulation at the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, waist, hips and knees.

He also comes with a roleplay ring. Press the skull button to shine a light on the figure to reveal the zombie feature. I tried it out, aside from his face, I didn't see the feature on any other part of his body.

He can fit in with the Zizzle 4" POTC line. 

And with some other lines.

Hope the later waves get released. Looking to get a few more characters.
