Hot Toys DX06 ~ Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides: Captain Jack Sparrow.

The fountain does test you, Gibbs. But better to not know which moment may be your last. Every morsel of your entire being alive to the infinite mystery of it all. And who's to say I won't live forever, eh? "Discoverer of the Fountain of Youth."I have no say in it, Gibbs. It's a pirate life for me. Savvy? ~ Jack Sparrow.

And here's Jack Sparrow, the leading protagonist from the Pirates of the Carribean franchise movies. This is the Hot Toys DX version based on the 2011 fourth movie version, On Stranger Tides. Missed the earlier versions, so this is an opportunity to collect one. Pirate characters are hard to come by. In my personal opinion, the protagonist is full of character, with a swashbuckling adventure storyline reminisent of those Indiana Jones movies, Depp is amazing as Sparrow. I just could not fathom how a movie which is originally based on the Disney themepark would eventually become movies. BTW, loves the first two, absolutely hates the mindboggling third, nice fourth sequel. The costume and accesorries are fabulous. And here's the deal, amongst Hot Toys headsculpt on their MMS series, this one (by Kojun) and the Christopher Reeves' Superman movie (by Arnie Kim) takes the cake for being closest likeliness to the real deal. Johnny Depps' HS, compared to the Sweeney Todd the Demon Barber HS is closer to the real deal 'ere. Savvy?
