Man that thing is huge, as is the price tag. Still someone will probably want it. At least it doesn't dispense Pez or make Lego ice cubes  :pir-grin:

WOW, very nice.  I wonder if they ever made a soldier version?  I saw the black pirate with the peg leg and hook once, but I think he was made out of Lego bricks and not solid like this one.  Spare?  If I had $900 spare laying around, it wouldn't stay spare very long.  I would share it with my friends on BL.

There are those who have more money than they know what to do with so they need to waste it on something :pir-grin:

I'd be curious to know who actually made it, whether it was officially produced by the LEGO Group or by one of those Asian imitation/clone brand manufacturers.

I took a closer look at the head and it has the Lego logo.  But that could be cloned also.

Well, while making similar bricks to those made by Lego may not be enough for a lawsuit, I think using their logo is just enough. So I think this is in fact a Lego product, not another clone.

However, if I had that much money to spend on Lego, I'd spend it on some real and useful bricks of the right size, not this strange room decoration.  :pir-tongue:

Yes it is real, it is a `Pirate store display`...

BTW it really did not take more than 30 seconds of searching to find this info.
