We all knew it would happen, if they were going to have the Disney Pirates of the Caribbean license LEGO would naturally make Captain Jack. Here you can see actor Ian McShane, who will be Captain Black Beard in the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: Stranger Tides, as he is introduced to the LEGO Captain Jack and his creator Master Model Builder Erik Varszegi.
Disney and LEGO unveiled a six foot tall ‘life-size’ statue of Captain Jack Sparrow, the first of its kind. The highly detailed statue, which includes a removable sword, consists of approximately 150,000 LEGO bricks and took more than 200 man hours to design and build. Approximately 70 of those hours alone were used in the creation of Jack’s head which was all done without the assistance of computers.
As with all of Erik’s creation it is yet another masterpiece.
