Update: 6/13/11 Disney announced today that the Pirates set will be released on June 18th…. in Hong Kong Disneyland!
Update: 6/11/11 Pirates will be released in Orlando’s D-Street on July 1. D-Street will open at 10:30am with a “special release party”. Then, from 1 – 3, POTC series artist Casey Jones will be on hand signing figures for guests. At Disneyland, Pirates will be released on July 3. We also have turn-arounds for all 12 figures, yes, including the mystery chaser. The chaser is a bit of a surprise. Not what we, or many other people expected. And in my opinion doesn’t have that Wow! factor. If you want to see, click below for the chaser.
Update: 6/4/11 Updated post with some in person pictures of a couple Pirates figures.
Update: 4/26/11 Disney updated the Vault page with pictures of 10 of the 12 figures. They didn’t show us sketches of the chaser or Jack Sparrow (who we already know about).
Update: 4/20/11 Jack Sparrow will be included in the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean set! A “beginning of July” release window was also announced.
Pirates of the Caribbean will be released as a 12 figure blind box set with 11 regular figures and one mystery chaser. Casey Jones designed this set based on the Pirates attraction at the Disney theme parks. This set is slated to be released at the beginning of July.
Artist: Casey Jones Release Date: “Beginning of July” Set Size: 11 with a Mystery Chaser
Pirate Top Hat
Two! Top hats with this set. This time, this one has a Skull and Crossbones on it. Very interesting.
From the local town, a fun part of the attraction.
Pirate Crew Member
Hook Hand Pirate We have already seen this pirate in a blurry photo.
A hook for a hand!!!
Barrel Jack Sparrow
Probably the only Johnny Depp in the series. Also probably the only movie reference.
The Disney Imagineers had a very long day and this was the very last Pirate in the attraction they had to name.
Dirty Foot Pirate
I was always nervous to look up when passing under the bridge for fear that slime from his disgusting foot would drop down on me.
Scuba Owl though we should add this pic!
POTC Man at Well This unfortunate man is awaiting his turn to be dunked in the well. Check out the detail of the ropes across his chest.
He is the middle guy on the right in yellow.
Tiny Tiny is one of the girls being auctioned off on Isla Tesoro. She smiles because of the attention the Pirates are giving her. Nice detail with the cap on her head.
Helmsman We have already seen a Pirate Helmsman in Park 5, but this one is much more detailed.
