How many named pirates are there?
Posted 20 March 2011 - 09:11 AM
I'm sorry I didn't get the chance to scan anything this Spring Break, but I thought I'd put in a few factoids from the Mania Magazines before I go back to school:
The September-October issue names the Skull's Eye Schooner parrot and monkey Squawks and Coco, respectively. It also gives a date for the LEGO Pirate adventures: 1700.
The March-April issue offered this biography of the Armada Admiral:
Favorite food: A "galleon" of rocky road ice cream
Favorite basketball player: David "the Admiral" Robinson
Favorite football team: The Buccaneers
Favorite song: Row, Row, Row Your Boat
The admiral of the Imperial Armada is one of the toughest sea dogs to sail the seven seas. Everyone calls him "the Admiral" because no one knows what his name is. He was marooned on a desert island when he was a baby and found by some Islanders. Ever since then, he's been a sailor.
The Admiral wears his super shiny armor everywhere, even in the tub. It just takes him awhile to scrub the rust stains off his neck. His favorite tub toy is the 6289 Red Beard's Runner. "I like to practice sinking his ship," says the Admiral.
The Admiral is a real sports fan. He especially likes to hang out with his friends the Islanders and play soccer. In the islands, they use coconuts for balls and palm trees for goals. "My scores aren't too good, but we sure eat well after the game," he says.
This issue also names the skeleton from Volcano Island--Skully. Not terribly original, but there you are. It also suggests that the identical skeleton from 6232 Skeleton Crew is named George, but then again the comic also pegs one of the Red Beard Runer pirates as George...no further names besides the ones already pointed out by Grog, but I seem to have lost the back cover of that magazine...I could have sworn there was one more named pirate...

Flashfork wears a red and white stripped shirt, not blue and white. The guy that Captain Grog said is Ben Gunn is called Castaway.
I was looking that in http://lego.wikia.co...tes_minifigures
I can't find references to names like Tatto McGoo or Black Jack Hawkins...i can't find the names of pirate minifigs released in 1996...could someone tell me where captain Grog found that names? Thanks
Posted 20 March 2011 - 11:24 PM
I can confirm the Tattoo McGoo and other RBR names--they're from the 1996 March-April issue of the LEGO Mania Magazine, the official publication of the American LEGO club.

Thanks mate...A scan would be great, but i understand that you could have lost that old magazine. In any case, i believe you.
Posted 22 March 2011 - 02:59 AM
Don't worry--I still have 99.99% of the magazine, and it will get scanned at some point (along with all the other books and magazines I have); I just need to find the time for it. A lot of these things I really wanted to see, so I look forward to sharing them with my fellow LEGO Pirates fans.
I've scanned the first two installments of that comic, and Mister Phes has been kind enough to post them here. The third part is missing, but I have since managed to acquire the magazine with the third part in it...scans will be coming at some point...it's all a matter of time.
Posted 26 March 2011 - 03:32 PM
It's nice to see how people remember this thread, and how more names are emerging.
New names this time:
Davy Jones (game)
Governor Weatherby Swann (game)
With the game advertising saying that it will have more than 70 characters I guess this list will become a lot longer.
I'm rather curios about those comics whit the Red Beard Runner since I actually own the set, was the George guy one of the two figures from the set that haven't been named yet?
Maybe I should make a second list of those character that only are called by a title or profession. I mean among the newer pirates we have the governor, the captain and the admiral being thrown around by both fans and official sources, in the POTC sets we have titles like quartermaster, gunner zombie, chef and horse coach driver.
Btw. I'm a little disappointed how Pintel apparently looks in the game, the torso is spot on, but his head is nowhere nearly ugly enough.

Great info mate.
Ah, i always thought Bessie and Anne are the same character, with different names. Now, i see i was confused about that.
Ah, 2 things about the new guards:
1) you said the chief of the new guards is a Captain...i always thougt is a governor because i think is a new version of Broadside, Like Brickbeard is a new version of Roger. Are you sure is a captain?
2) Are you sure the cook is a member of the imperial crew? I think is a pirate because is dressed like a pirate, looks evil, and we can see him fighting a redocoat in the box of the set 10210.
Ah, Captain Roger/Redbeard is Called Captain Knoest in Germany(i saw the comic in german in 2005), you can add it to if you want
Posted 12 April 2011 - 03:07 PM
Funny thing about Anne and Bessie, they may not be the same character, but Ann is actually supposed to be Bessie’s daughter according to an earlier post.
As for the new guards:
1) I’m just using the set descriptions found on Brickwiki and Brickset, I think they are copies of the set descriptions on LEGO’s own site. Just trying to keep the sources more or less official. And yes, captain seems a bit low a rank for someone who is in charge of the biggest LEGO pirates ship ever.
2) That is a thing that could be up for debate. He could be a pirate, he could be a soldier, or he could be a neutral sailor. It’s all left unclear. The old flagship has the same problem with a figure that could just be a sailor or a prisoner. But for the sake of the list I put him among the soldiers; he is at least employed as a cook by them apparently.
More international names are always interesting, although I’m fairly fluent in German, I’m not sure if Knoest has a special meaning, I’ll try and look it up.
My brother and I are working on gathering more names. We have just bought LEGO Football Mania, and we have so far unlocked one pirate, or sailor, team already. So there might be coming quite a few more names soon.

I'm not sure if this has been linked to before, but LEGO's FourPlus Pirates website is still up, and it has some intriguing information about the characters: http://www.lego.com/.../thepirates.asp
Here's what I found interesting:
Captian Kragg is Redbeard's brother.
The FourPlus ship is called The Hurricane.
A new pirate or Armada character is named: Don Cortez, the one who buried the treasure the pirates are after.

The first team has blue and white striped tank tops, blue pants and red bandanas, except for Nautical Nina who wears white pants, a white shirt, has red hair and an eye patch. Faces varies between figures.
Jack the Mop
The next team is a crew of skeletons, they all look the same, white skeleton with black bicorn with Jolly Roger on it, except the goalie who wears an eye patch with a Jolly Roger on it.
Captain Click (is this the same Captain Click as the one from LEGO island?)
Dim Dem Bones
The last pirate team wear blue jackets, white pants and brown tricorners, except for Captain Redbeard who looks like he usually does except for no epaulets and a small red feather in his hat.
I would like to give a more thorough description of them, but I’ll have to get over the technical difficulties first.
Also plenty of names for other themes. Gamefaqs has a name list if you’re curious.

You said you are using Brickset. Then, according to Brickset, that guy is a governor:
According to Brickset again, "the cook" is a pirate:
About the guy of the old flagship, he appears in Black seas barracuda too, so is another pirate
And finally, about Lego football manias pirates...if you could add screenshots with the chacaters, it would be great
Posted 17 April 2011 - 12:48 PM
The problem about those names on Brickset is that I’m not sure how official they are. The pirate label on the cook could just be for the torso type, the merchants from the Imperial Trading post are also labeled as pirates. One of the reasons I made this thread to begin with was to make heads and tails of what was official and what was fan terms.
As for LEGO Football Mania, I have to thank my brother for taking these pictures, and playing through the game 3 times before that due to save errors and corrupted files.
Jack the Mop
Dim Dem Bones
Captain Redbeard, not that it should surprise anyone what he looks like

Time for another Pirates of the Caribbean video game update thanks to Brickwiki:
Lian & Park (at least I assume it’s them in the background of Sao Feng’s pictures)
Bootstrap Bill (at least I think it's his barnacle encrusted face that we see behind Davy Jones)
Also, I have made a few scans of the Danish version of the pirate comic that I have.
Inside of the cover with the various groups and lots of named people.
And this is most of the story about the Blackdeed cousins.

I’ll thank Saint for bringing this website to my attention. It has quite a lot of international material. Unfortunately I can’t read all the languages, but I’ll see what I can get out of it.
So let’s start with 3 different versions of The Golden Medallion (6255):
Broadside (English), Gouverneur Breitseit (German), Grootzail (Dutch),
Camilla (English) (German) (Dutch),
Aunt Prudence (English), Tantchen Rebecca (German), Zus (Dutch),
de Martinet (English), Leutnant de Martinez (German), Van Kwelling (Dutch),
Foul (English), Käpt’n Baddog (German), Knook (Dutch),
Culverin (English), Maat Dumbo (German), Kollosul (Dutch)
Red Beard (English), Käpt’n Roger (German), Knoest (Dutch),
Pappagei Polly (German),
Will (English), Willy (German), Wil (Dutch),
Rummy (English), Rumpott (German),
Flashfork (English), Smuttie (German), Smulpaap (Dutch),
Spinoza (English) (Dutch), Speedy (German),
Bessie (English) (German),Betsie (Dutch),
John & Brian Blackheart (English), John & Brian McBlack (German), Wout & Wiebe Wandaad (Dutch),
The website also has quite a few catalogs with some interesting manes sprinkled throughout them, not listing repeats from 6255.
6235: Bo’sul Will (small European catalog)
Capitaine Barbe-Rousse (full line Canadian catalog)
Bootsman Wil (full line Netherlands) only a mug shot of a mustachioed pirate with a blue bandana.
Polli der Papagai (full line Germany)
Admiraal Blaaskaak (full line Neterlands)
6261 Ironhook’s Escape Raft, 6235 Bo’sun Will and Spinoza (small catalog Europe)
Admiral Woodhouse (English text in Japanese catalog)
Indigo Islanders, 6264 includes Ironhook, now with a pegleg (full line United Kingdom)
Kapitein Blokbaard (Netherlands)
There are also a few scans of other magazines and comics.
Unfortunately I can’t really read them. I’m fluent in Danish, English and German, I can understand Norwegian and Swedish and I might be capable of reading some Dutch, but I can’t read French.
I might have overlooked some names in the vast amounts of material, and it being in languages that I don’t understand doesn’t help.
Are there any other members here on Eurobricks that could tell us a little more about these scans? There are many interesting things in the catalogs like alternative set names, ship names, voodoo and taverns. Also dies anybody know websites with more scans?

And by the way, it looks like this young kids book got published:
You can use Amazon's "look inside" and read just a few pages. They introduce Captain Brickbeard by name, but I could only see a couple other pages besides that, and on one page they refer to "the pirates" so maybe they don't use many specific names. But if someone can get their hands on the book itself, maybe there are some names for the 2009/2010 Pirates line.
Oh and by the way, there are some other books by the same publisher for Lego stuff. One of them is for Kingdoms, and another I'm pretty sure was City (firefighters subtheme if I recall correctly).
EDIT: I poked through the Kingdoms one. It looks promising because that one uses names like "The Dragon Knight" (in all caps, implying a proper name) and even refers to the prison tower as something like "the dragon knight's tower", which is a little strange since the set's name is "Prison Tower Rescue". But my point is that this looks promising for the Pirates book if it's written the same, and maybe they gave some names to characters from 2009 pirates!

This is very interesting; I hadn’t thought that stage shows would hold some new names. If I remember correctly LEGOLAND in Billund also has a stage in the old pirate part of the park, but I have never seen any of the shows.
Is it just me, or does Miranda Valentina bear a rather striking resemblance to the female figure included with Brickbeard’s Bounty? Admittedly we never get at that great look at her in the video, but white dress and blue pants match the figure, even the details I can make out on her torso match the figures. Sawtooth also matches the shark that is included with BBB. The female figure is, as far as I remember, called the admiral’s daughter in the set description, so does that mean that we also have an unseen admiral Valentina among the pirate characters?
I was actually considering digging up this thread again anyways, since I have noticed that the LEGO wiki lists a few Pirates of the Caribbean figures from other ports of the game that aren't on my list that was based on the PC version. Morey, Palifico,Manray and Greenbeard, some of Davy Jones goons, appear in a different version of the game. Monk, one of Barbossas goons, also appears in the DS version.
Considering that I have already mentioned characters from licensed sets, let’s just also mention The Flying Dutchman, Spongebob Squarepants and Patrick Star for good measures.

Interesting! I hadn't thought of that. It's great to see more characters introduced; there were so many with the first wave of LEGO Pirates.
