BrickBeard (Or as i call him, Captain Edwards :pir-wink: ) Because hes richer and His torso works good for just about any man in his era.
Some say the vikings were tall, others say they were short. But they were in-between, They were armies of Ronny james Dios.

Hahaha, Freddie mercury was gay, though he didn't seem gay. how odd. I aint a homophobe

I like Red Beard because he has been around the longest making him experienced. He also doesnt look like hes to rich and faggy like Brick Beard. He doesnt look hobo like iron hook and he has the largest crew of them all so hes like invincible.

I like Brick Beard because he is an updated, and in my opinion better, version of Red Beard. Maybe this guy should be added to the poll? http://www.bricklink...Pic.asp?M=pi102
I belive he is the only other minifig to wear the hat and I personally like the torso.

I like Captain Brickbeard the most, but only because I wasn't around when the other minifigures were released, and because the prints look much better than the others IMO.

None of them must be good with swords, they have all lost an eye, hand and leg, either swordmanship or sailing.

A very good point, I think they are all hobbling disaster zones!

I will go for BrickBeard, just because I have the modern pirates.  I have to say when I was a kid the original captain looked very good (and of course the whole line was a revolution in MiniFig design), but I never got any Pirate sets -so I have no nostalgia for them really.

I surprised myself by voting Brick Beard.  I really like Red Beard and have a lot of him but I just think Brick Beard is a better minifigure.  Good survey Armendariz.  Thanks

i always loved Captain Roger design because is really cool...i always thought Ironhook is a loser with broken clothes and a small ship that can be defeated easily. Once i saw Brickbeard i thought "is cooler than Roger"

Brickbeard is cooler than Roger because has more expressive and realistic face, has golden hook and golden epaulettes and smart clothes.

Yeah, i voted Brickbeard

Wouldn't silver or chrome be a more appropriate colour for a hook?
Chrome or sprayed silver (like the Crownie helmets) would rub off or chip too easily for a "friction" piece. Pearl "popsicle" silver (Crownie spear/sword) would be suitable, as the plastic itself is coloured. Personally I prefer the old dark grey hook from Adventurers to the light grey or pearl gold ones, as it looks more menacing. A black hook would be cool.

Captain Pete FTW! :pir_laugh2: Hehe, just kidding.

Of course it's Brickbeard! He is more detailed, more realistic, and has a more mean pirate smile! Plus the gold hook and epaulets! :thumbup:

Who the heck is Iron Hook? :pir-look:  I have never heard of him before, and I can't find a picture of him. :pir-blush:

I voted for Redbeard. I still have my original one from my childhood.  I would like Brickbeard more but I'm not fond of the gold hook.

Iron Hook came in the Renegade Runner set.

Well, if we include Pete into the poll, I think we should include him too. :pir-wink:

Who's got ideas for a name? :pir-sweet:
