Pirates of the Caribbean customs...opinions please!

Postby jtherlow » Sun Feb 22, 2004 7:04 pm

Well, I had been wanting to do some PotC customs, so, when I finally got my hands on some brass cleaner, I decided to try it on a Qui-Gon Jinn head. I erased the beard-ta-daa-
Will Turner!

And I've also done Jack Sparrow. I didn't like him at first, but he's starting to grow on me... :wink:
Please, go ahead and tell me how great they are! Or how bad they are! And please, give me some suggestions!

I've lost my Padme head for Elizabeth Swann...and I'm planning on using an Imperial Armada torso for commodore Norrington....

Nice, but if you're going to go to the point where you erase some parts of faces, then you should go to the point where you add/paint dreadlocks on Jack. I'd also love to see some cursed pirates, but obviously its up to you If you continue this farther. good luck :)
Also, here are some of Richie Dulin's torsos I've used for officers http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=39633 just in case you think they might be better for the commodore and/or other officers. They are a bit too thin :?...

I suppose having bought the movie on DVD I should know this offhand but didn't Commodore Norrington, as a Naval Officer, have a blue coat? Red coats are strictly for the army and marines of the time period.

Sorry, the BA in history makes me irritable about historical innacurracies sometimes. :D

I do need to add dreadlocks on Jack, I've been thinking about that...

This torso was once available in blue, but I can't find it on Bricklink, it's currently on my watch list. :) If you have one, please feel free to mail it to me! :wink:
