Hey, I found these while browsing this morning and they are most excellent. Built by GeekyTom who has actually been working on the new movie.

Looks a bit fragile, but they are easily recognizable as PotC figures, and they may also be inspirational for building figureheads in minfigure scale.
Thanks for bringing this to us!  :thumbup:

Using minifig arms as pistol handles in Jack's waistbelt ist clever, as is the way his boots are constructed.

If that would, i wonder why Jacks mother has mustaches in that photo :pir_laugh2:
i really like the idea and the figs themself, i dont like the head in Jacks belt, IMO it just looks ugly. But Barbossas figure is my favorite, love the way he builded the Barbossas hat. Great find! :thumbup:

Interesting, not really my favorite style of fig's, but you can appreciate the clean work still.

Nice find Derfel! I think I prefer the normal minifigs too, but these are also very clever.
It's been made in a clear style and I think this is very close to as perfect as one can do with giant figs.
