Ian McShane Joins Disney in Reveal of LEGO Captain Jack Sparrow Life-Size Statue

John Myhre and Ian McShane check out the life-size LEGO Captain Jack Sparrow

Earlier this evening, Disney Consumer Products debuted new lines of toys from LEGO and JAKKS Pacific for this summer’s blockbuster, Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides. Highlights of the event included appearances by production designer John Myhre and Ian McShane who takes on the role of Blackbeard, the pirate all pirates fear.

As part of the event, 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.

img_8756 As part of last week’s Disney Consumer Products holiday tour, we also got a first look at several toys from JAKKS Pacific in honor of the upcoming direct-to-video Disney Fairies movie Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue.

Standouts from the collection include a soft-bodied doll version of Lizzie, the human child in the film who encounters Tinker Bell and develops a relationship with her. Lizzie comes complete with a small plastic figure of Tink that fits in Lizzie’s pocket. Additionally, there will be a separate fairy house playset available which pays respects to the fairy house constructed by Lizzie from household products which initially draws Tinker Bell in.
