Limited Edition Captain Hook

     Released by Disney and Mattel in 1999, Captain Hook was the first limited edition doll of what was supposed to be an all male villain collector doll series. For some reason this series was discontinued before a second doll could be released. The quality of Hook's costume is amazing! Everything from the plume on his hat to the buckles on his shoes were done just right. I especially like the facial expression they used for the doll, it is a perfect portrayal of the on-screen villain. The captain comes complete with a stand and certificate of authenticity.

Pirates of the Caribbean

             In continuing on with this month's Halloween theme, here are some of our Pirates of the Caribbean collectibles.

     Medicom Toy has produced a Mickey Mouse dressed up as Jack Sparrow Vinyl Collectible Doll. Mickey acquires Jack Sparrow's personality along with Jack's outfit, implied by his stance and facial expression. The outfit comes complete with Jack's rings that he likes to show off, as well as his hat, sash, coat and sword. We would strongly recommend this piece to any Pirates of the Carribean collector.

     Neca released 18" Action Figures With Sound for each of the Pirates of the Caribbean films. Each figure is sculpted very well, recreating the characters identical features. The packaging is also very well done, with window front for display (with map background), with lots of detail on the back and colourful graphics to surround the sides.

     Jack Sparrow was the first character, made from Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. He comes with a sword that can be held in his hand, a pistol, his trusty compass, his hat and signature pirate outfit. Says phrases from the film when activated by motion. This piece can currently only be found on the secondary market.

     For Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, Neca released an 18" Cannibal Jack figure to follow the first. This Jack has the "cannibal" paint on his face like Jack has in the film, the necklace of human fingers around his neck, as well as a bottle of rum and an interchangable hand. Says phrases from the film with activated by motion.

     From Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, Neca released an 18" Captain Teague figure. This figure comes with two pistols, a sword and a matching base. He also comes with Jack's late mother's shrunken head. Captain Teague, who is played by Keith Richards, has immaculate detail on his face and outfit to pay respect to the film.
