Classic Pirate Minifigure Re-released

Monday, February 16th, 2009
Go over to the Pirates forum to discuss the Minifigure collection!

Two space dudes? We wanted two Pirates!

Whilst the new LEGO® Pirate minifigures are arguably more aesthetically pleasing, there's a certain nostalgic element surrounding those from the original line. As part of their Vintage Minifigure Collections, The LEGO Group have unsurprisingly included a pirate figure.

However, many would have expected to see a more famous and charismatic pirate brought back, such as Captain Redbeard/Roger.

Why, then, do we get a minifig that only appeared in 3 sets (6289 Red Beard Runner, 6281 Pirates' Perilous Pitfall, 6249 Pirates Ambush)?

The later pirates from the original line are more similar in design to the new ones, so this could be the reason. Or could The LEGO Group be closely monitoring AFOL demand trends? Of all the classic pirate torsos, the one bearing the anchor tattoo is the second most expensive, sometimes selling for as much as $12!

The Vintage Minifigure Collection is expected to retail for $17.99 in the USA, so this rare torso could stimulate a high demand for the set.

What do you think? Should Captain Roger/Redbeard, often used as the "flagship" minifigure for the LEGO Pirate line at Legoland parks and on official merchandise, have been brought back instead of the "anchor pirate"?

Would you get the whole Collection just for one minifig?
