Minifigs from the LEGO Minifigure Series useful to the Pirate Theme - Series 24 - UPDATED November 2022

Recommended Posts

- if you swap out the legs the Barbarian has lots of possibilities as a bare chested Pirate. Especially with all of the ornate belts.

- The Scarecrows straw hat is starting to make me think a bit of One Piece.

This 'prospector' figure might be in S12 of the Collectible Minifigures.

I think the hat would look good on a pirate, shame about the bright orange patch though. If it were all black I think it would look good on a Herman Toothrot style castaway.

Obvious as it is, Im surprised no one has mentioned the swashbuckler yet... pirate_laugh2.gif

Yeah, I kind of thought he went without saying... pir_laugh2.gif

I just read the first post and realised that we're supposed to be voting for minifigs or minifig accessories to go on the first post, and there are a couple of recent things notably missing. Here are my thoughts:

Calamity Drone:

Musket, and also I think the hairpiece with hat might look good on a female swashbucker. Unfortunately the grey stops the rest of her from being as useful as it could have been.

William Shakespeare:

Torso, trousers and ruff could be useful for naval explorers. Very similar to the Thespian, who is already in the first post.

Wild West Wyldstyle:

Dress could be appropriate for a bordello owner somewhere in the Caribbean. Definitely a bordello owner.

Marsha:

For those who have a fantasy element in their Pirate theme.

Fortune Teller:

Voodoo lady of the seas.

Islander:

Is an Islander.

Also, and I know this is somewhat late, I'd like to see Faefrost's idea of the Barbarian torso swapped out to make a bare-chested pirate. And once proper images of the Swashbuckler are available, I think he should definitely be included. And I agree with Elrond that that the Pretzel Girl's torso would make an excellent girl pirate.

You're three-quarters of the way right!

 That Hat IS from a Prospector CMF; However there are some minor differences;

Grey Chin-Beard, Unionsuit top, suspenders... The Patch and color of the hat actually do Synergyze well with another Pirates Top that was introduced in the 2015 Pirates wave, which was also a brown top with a single beige patch. 

Pirate (2015) - Brickipedia, the LEGO Wiki

 

Matter of fact, I got this fella right here, with the Prospector's Hat, and Legs, and I call him, "Patches O'Hoolahan" Stout-hearted and stout-fisted brickhouse of a man, he's as well known for lifting heavy Chests full of loot as he is for brawling and carousing when he's in port. As a manner of habit from both hobbies, Patches Clothes incidentally get worn out quite often! Haven't had a free moment to play Bretheren of the Brick Sea, but if anyone's got a spare prospector and 2015 Brown pirate torso with patch, they're more than welcome to introduce him and put him in play!

I am still bummed that they didn’t do back print on this figure, he was begging for those suspenders to be on the back.

And a big thanks to @Samarth our latest Facebook Group Moderator for jumping on this so quickly in the group - because, as per usual, I'm so caught up with external matters and would have missed this minifig had he not take the initiative to write a post about it. :pir-thumb:
