Officially licenced LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean sets?

This was snapped at Comic-Con, though there's no announcement yet. There's a chance it's an unofficial custom figure.

However LEGO and Disney have signed a deal (so far Cars, Toy Story & Prince of Persia), so there's a good chance we'll be getting POTC sets on the shelves with 'On Stranger Tides' movie release in 2011.






And that means there's also a chance of a TTGames LEGO POTC videogame...

A LEGO game based on Pirates of the Caribbean would be an utterly perfect fit. Toy Story would also be acceptable.

Ok I must admit, I still haven't touched the lego games. I probably spent 23 hours a day playing with lego when I was muuuuch younger so I'm a fan, but I still don't get the point of a computer game with lego characters. Are they really that good?

I don't care about LEGO games, but if that turns out to be true... I want those LEGO sets!

Yes, actually. They're very much "all-ages" games, like Mario or Sonic, but the best thing about all of them is the way they lampoon the movies in a very loving and surprisingly adult way. Pixar-like, you might say. Lego Star Wars fit the series perfectly, and Lego Indy 1 was excellent, although opinions are mixed on Lego Batman (I got bored with it) and Lego Indy 2 (I hated it at first and then loved it - there's a zombie level!). Lego Harry Potter is the only one I've not played, and it's supposed to be the best yet.

There's no way that's a custom. Please don't be a custom. I want this to happen.

I wonder what he's doing on a camel? A little boat would make more sense -- unless this is part of the plot for the next film.

It must be a custom, look at the texture of his hat.

Also, the LEGO Star Wars games are all awesome, buy them now.
LEGO Indy 2 sucks though.

Prototypes usually have that texture. Look at this camel from the Prince Of Persia set reveal.



Gabez, as for why Jack's on a camel, the figure in front of him in the second shot looks like the prince from Prince Of Persia. I'm guessing Lego snuck Jack into the PoP showcase to tease fans.

Lol is that a camel or a dromedary? Since it seems to have two half humps. :P

Someone on the comments thread pointed out that with this new Disney deal, and since Disney now own Marvel Comics, it's possible we could see sets and games based on Marvel characters like Spider-Man, Iron Man, X-Men etc.

There were some sets based on Spider-Man 2 a couple of years ago, but they were phased out when the Batman line was released. It would be cool to see some stuff based directly on the comics, though.

A lego PotC game would be great! I love the lego star wars games and I think this would be awesome!

I think I've seen that tutorial before. I never could figure it out. Oh well, I've never really been good at that kind of stuff anyway.

It needs updating - there was a tool developed that made the unpacking and repacking of the textures way easier.
