Although one other thing, the hat on the Medicom figure does sit a bit better than HTs. But still Medicom will be going to live with someone else... sadly they don't sell for crap right now
    Ya, I meant the long outter coat. I am with you that everything is more worn looking with HT. His white shirt has a lot of stains too that work great, even the sash, his coat, much more appropriate for Pirates figures than fresh and clean, some properties can get away without being weathered but Pirates needs it. I forgot to mention, I'm same way, Medi's hat is all around better, shape, size, fit on head, texture, but HT's is still alright. I still have my Medi Jack, 2 actually, I'm long-term working on the 2nd with custom work, I also have a 12" NECA Jack, I just love the Jack Sparrow character

    Things I'm Selling
    I fully plan on getting the v2 Jack when he is released ( I just pray I have the money at the time). I'm hope I get the v1 for Christmas, otherwise I probably will just have v2. The only other characters I would plan on getting are Barbossa and Davy Jones. At the triple-Sideshow-price point, I really can only get my favorite characters. If they were the $50-70 price, I'd probably get them all. Oh, I know the quality is much higher, but still, when you think about it:

    Palpatine + Darth Sidious = 1 Jack Sparrow

    So I'll be very pick and choosey unless there are just some fantastic deals on the others (under $100).

    Ok, so as my mind is busy, I feel like doing out a list of possible future figures.

    Davy Jones ***
    Hector Barbossa ***
    Gibbs ***
    Ragetti ***
    Pintel ***
    Tia Dalma
    Bootstrap Bill ***
    James Norrington
    Cutler Beckett
    Cannibal Island Native
    Davy Jones Crew Members
    Cursed Pirates (Dead Forms)
    Captain Teague ***

    Now, that would be for fresh figures, certainly for currently done characters

    COTBP
    Captain Jack Sparrow
    Will Turner
    Elizabeth Swann

    DMC
    Will Turner ***
    Elizabeth Swann ***

    That's about everyone I figure has a shot at getting the figure treatment, though Beckett was a suggestion by The Mike, I really don't think his character at all warrants a figure and don't think HT would see him as much a seller, he was a good subtle villain and counterpoint to Jack, but nothing about him was all that interesting to want a $130 figure of him, nor were his clothes anything spectacular. Even Norrington I think is iffy, but I could almost see a DMC version to recreate the Jack-Will-Norrington duel. The starred names are the ones I imagine will get made. I'd love to see a Marty the pirate, but even the new HT-Sideshow child body isn't small enough for him.

    V1 Jack will be here Monday from AE! WooHoo!!:chew

    So there are stains on his shirt? It still looks very white too me in pics as does his sash. I'm thinking about making them a bit more "old worn white" in color when I get mine.

    Wait til you get him in hand, the staining of his shirt is very subtle, BUT, it's a good subtle, believeable, anything more than what they did might look like too much. The stains are like a creamy coffee shade, light tan

    I was thinking what isn't stained would be too white. His shirt appears to be almost off white on film and photos. But like you said, with him in hand I may decide differently.

    You'll be blown away, dumb as it sounds, the weathering on Jack is almost an artwork in and of itself, without being part of a whole figure, they really did a nice job on it, doesn't seem toyish at all.

    I really can't wait now. V2 and Will are pretty much a done deal as it is too.

    Ya, I was pretty sure I'd get Will at the announcement, my only real reservation was which incarnation because for AWE, the one they chose is the only one I'd get, and they've done it best anyone could, and anything fantastic that's Jack Sparrow I'm game for too, so v2, v3, v4, I'll get em all, then recreate multiple Jacks scene haha.
