Barbie Collector: Captain Jack Sparrow

I had been on the hunt for this doll for a bit of time, and I finally received him tonight!

Captain Jack Sparrow of the Pirates of Caribbean franchise is a Pink Label doll. It means that he is not a limited-edition doll. He has been quite difficult to find though, and as a result, his price has jumped up quite a bit!

And here is the back. You can read a bit about the movie series here.

Here he is, semi-unboxed. Look at that handsome face.

Can we just appreciate the level of detail for this PINK label doll!

He even has this dangling head accessory!

Pink Label, but honestly better than so many higher-tiered dolls now...... ; 3 ;

Jack Sparrow fully out of the box!

And an official promotional image for reference. He doesn't have the ring or the guns, but there are several accessories that they did include.
Not bad, I'd say! It could use some aging and tattering, but for a pink label, I am not complaining.

My main intention of getting Jack is to photograph him with other dolls. Keeping him in his stock clothing would limit that. So I did re-dress him! I do not have a lot of male doll clothes at the moment (as he is my third male doll, and one of them is still a boxed fashionista from my lovely friend, Terra.)

Seriously good-looking despite the lame fashion I have available for him! XDD

Now what should his new name be?

I am overall very satisfied with this doll, which I had bought for $100 including shipping to Japan from Australia. I would say it's not bad... but I can hear some of you screaming at me now for unboxing a hundred-dollar doll. lol But looking at eBay's sold list now (January 2018), the highest he has gone for was $165.99....... and that's without shipping too! On Amazon I am seeing two listings for $224.99 and $515.75. Yeah you read that right! And yes, I am trying to justify my purchase! Hahaha. But seriously, I do not regret getting him at all. So happy to add him to my group of dolls. ^___^

Well then, this is all for now. See you next time! ^^
