I picked up Marty the Midget tonight...  Outstanding figure actually, and the monkey kicks butt as an accessory in his little Chinese outfit.

Great customizing fodder there this time around...  It's been steadily improving.  "Small" fodder like Marty is rare so that's great really on a variety of levels. 

Swann in the Asian costume is really nice too for SW figures...  Very ornate duds.

That figure pisses me off...it's the only one out of 25 POTC figures I have that won't stand up.  That jacket makes the figure too top-heavy, then add the skinny legs and you've got problems.

Sao Feng remains my favorite of the new batch.



Nifty.   8)

Not sure if you're asking to see them as a group or individually, but I have them all pictured individually here.

I didn't take a real close look at them, but at Wal-Mart today I saw an endcap with these "treasure chest" packs for the Zizzle POTC figures.  Like I said, I didn't look closely at the different combos, but they seem to have three action figures packed with a plastic treasure chest for around $15.  The ones I saw had a gold Captain Jack included as one of the figures, so maybe Zizzle is going the way of the "exclusive" figures now too.

I saw those as well last week.  I only saw one different pack, the "Captains" set with Barbossa, Sparrow and Jones.  Jones was the comic pack version with the removable hat, Barbossa looked to be the standard version (though the paint might have been a *tad* different), and then there was the solid gold Jack.  Kind of odd.

John, I don't follow these but I'll happily look for you.  Our Walmarts up here put these out well before the street date and there have been a lot on the shelves/pegs for some time, so maybe.  Can you post who's in it and I'll check for you since I'm in stores every other day anyway.

After seeing the movie, I hope we get a figure of Keith Richards as Jack Sparrows dad.

Thanks.  :)  The second assortment includes 2x Captain Jack Sparrow with Rifle, 1x Pintel, 1x Ragetti, 1x Sao Feng, 2x Desert Jack Sparrow with mini crabs, 2x Captain Barbossa, 1x Hadras Flying Dutchman Pirate, 2x Davy Jones with Removable Tentacles.  Not sure why we need *two* more Jacks in one wave...typical though.

NECA is making one, but it doesn't appear to be in any of the first (and probably only) three waves by Zizzle.  Should be a cool figure, despite the character's somewhat pointless role in the movie.  :)

There's quite an assortment of figures out there right now, but those ones are not among the ones on the pegs around here, sorry.  Lots of nice stuff in there, but I ain't starting up another line :-X

I've not been really interested in this line but I've wanted that Black Pearl ship playset since it came out for the last movie. It's just a bit pricey at $45-$65 depending on the store. Then I ran into the odd Wal-mart that had them at $24.97. I couldn't pass that up but why does one Wal-mart discount so heavy and others don't? It's just odd to me.
