Keep your booze locked up, this brick built Jack Sparrow is looking for some rum. This Lego bust of Captain Jack is created by Bryce Dempsey. Built as an entry into an Iron Builder challenge, specifically to use the Minifigure shooters in new and unique ways. You can see a lot of them being used to create the hair, mustache, and goatee. A great detail is the single white shooter. Who knew that these even came in other colors. For a brick built figure this is a difficult scale to work in. Just big enough to get some extra details, but not small enough to rely on super simplified caricature. The nose and eyes are extremely well done in this scale, combined they form an instantly recognizable Jack.
The Black Pearl is the infamous pirate ship captained by Jack Sparrow, of the Pirates of the Caribbean films. All the way back to its humble beginnings the ship was known as the Wicked Wench. Captain Jack would eventually make a deal with Davy Jones transforming the galleon into the Black Pearl. Since then it has been through a lot of adventures. Even ending up inside a bottle for a while. This monochrome Lego Black Pearl is the creation of Henjin_Quilones. It was built as an entry into the Style If Up contest. Where the challenge was to build something with only one color. This Lego MOC is a great build. It is smaller than the official Lego pirate ships, but somehow this one feels just as detailed. The super tiny cannons and rolled up black sails are especially great.
Jack Sparrow had to face an epic battle at the end of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest. The whole film ended with an incredible battle where Jack called upon the Kraken to fight the Pearl. Someone saw this iconic scene and thought; that needs to be in Lego.
