I sure hope, otherwise that giant magnet might bend the bars and let him hobble out!
Regardless, that's good to hear Mr. Timms, enjoy your Bluecoat! Arr!
From the Black Falcon guy I got from the TRU promotion (unfortunately, I didn't get the Bluecoat guy when I bought over the required amount due to the TRU employee didn't know about the promotion [I went and purchased Lego on the 1st day of the promotion in the morning]) and assuming that the Bluecoat is of the same construction as the Black Falcon, then the magnet is definitely separate from the minifigure.
The Minifigure is a full blown figure that is not glued to anything. The magnet is a piece by itself where you attach a 3x2 piece to it and you attach the minifigure to the 3x2 piece (well, there's an extra 2x1 piece to place it on the 3x2 piece).
