The video is very low quality so the photos won't be very good...

Have you got the photos you need?

There weren't really many good shots of the soldier in the video.

Which LEGO Maniac commercials?

I've just watched a dozen of those commercials and Jack seems to be the star. While portrayed by various different actors, Jack is definitely not constructed from LEGO.

This LEGO Mania commercial from 1994 has Jack and footage of older commercials featuring Pirates and Space characters built out of LEGO. (The cartoon Maniac appears on the end logo too; it's a real bridging of the eras.) I didn't see the Soldier in this one, just the Pirate cabin boy.
 



Fun fact though, I ran across these images on one of the LEGO Pirate Facebook groups I belong to. (I apologize for not making a note of the person and group at the time so I could give full credit; if anyone knows, please post and let me know.) They reveal that the Pirate boy from the commercial is actually Jimbo, the cabin boy from the Golden Medallion comic and other Pirate story materials!

Just look at the pictures of Jimbo... Makes no sense. Hair colour, shorts vs long pants,. boots.. eyepatch :) But hey if they was told that in 1989 i will go with that :)
