    Well, you already made a perfect COTBP Jack (although I would put the right side beads a bit higher closer to the right eye/cheek...but that's just me ), but I can understand if you buy a new HT version.

    I'd settle for a Cannibal 2.0 because his look is close enough to COTBP. I was watching Pirates 4 and 5 a few days ago and I can't stand the way he looks now. He looks like a whore in drags. Thankfully, the HT figures look much better than he did in those films.

    I guess while I'm ranting about of 4 and 5, I also dislike his bandanna decoration in 4 and 5. It lost all meaning. In the first 3 films he always wore a few beads with a Spanish coin, so that was his look, and the coin even played a role in the third film. So it had some kind of implied meaning or history, but at the end of part 3 he's wearing a new decoration that looks like a shark's fang, which was fine, he needed something new after losing the coin, I guess, but in part 4, it was gone and replaced by some bones and a human tooth for no reason, then in part 5 now has like a little hook thingy...and it's like, none of it means anything. It lost all meaning. Ok, I'm done.

    Thanks...I am pretty happy with it! But yeah Jack (and Indy) I have a hard time passing up if HT or other company were to do them.

    I'd still love to have that Cannibal Jack 2.0 they teased years ago!

    And I'm with you on the "piece of eight" it kinda lost all meaning and just became a "cosmetic trinket" now. I prefer the Piece of Eight look out them all for sure.

    The Pirates license with HT has been a puzzling one for sure. We got Jack, Will and Elizabeth as well as Davy Jones for important characters, neglecting inclusion of Barbossa and including one offs like Sao Feng and Angelica. I don't think it comes down to likeness, NECA did like every character from the movies.

    I think we got DX06 for 2 reasons, 1 being HT wanting to show off their advancements to coincide with the new movie release, and 2 being to compete with Enterbay whom they seemed to almost have a feud with for a time around it's release.

    Fast forward a few years, I think we get DX15 because they like Depp, Jack seems to sell well, and they saw opportunity to sell another figure with minimal new work and loads of opportunity for new accessories and display to make the package appealing to even those who already had DX06.

    I think lack of anything from POTC 1-3 comes down to the minimal items they could throw in the package to help it sell. Best bet I could see is a DX with separate Curse and DMC/AWE hair pieces, same face plates, add things like Davy Jones' chest, some sort of base that's elaborate like the rudder and DMTNT base, but HT rarely does multiple movies in one DX release. Not sure what holds them back, maybe just don't consider it priority with everything else contemporary they're trying to do. HT is biting off a lot right now and not being as deep with their licenses as they could if they did less. Star Wars has a lot of figures from past films alone they could be diving into and haven't even gotten to yet.

    Perhaps, depending on how much change there is to his look, if we are lucky to get a POTC 6 with Depp, maybe they'll do a DX based on past films and just cash in on the hype of a new movie.

    If we don't get a new film with Depp though, I don't forsee any more Jack's from them unless HT makes some sort of new leap in figure quality they want to show off with what has been pretty unanimously one of their best release every time it comes out. DX06 and DX15 haven been hailed as some of the best figures out when they were first released.

    I was always of the impression Jack's piece happened to be the only one that was actually a coin, I didn't think the entire dongle on his bandana was part, but Barbossa took it all anyway, so for me, the new one at the end of AWE and carrying forward was about Jack feeling attached to it as part of his look, and wanting to replace it, so it's presence to me still has meaning, just different meaning. I do agree that the version in part 4 was ugly and I hated that they put it on the other side for whatever weird reason, but I feel like the part 5 version looks closer to 1-3 and works fine. It would have been nice if they made his piece of eight something more subtle like hiding in his dreadlocks that you wouldn't even notice missing, but I get why they did what they did, and it was a bit of a "so that's what that's on there for" moment when they revealed where his was.

    So honest opinion, if you could have just one, would it be the DX06 or the DX15? Jack is that one figure for me that every time I look pics of him, I want it, even though my entire collection is Star Wars and he wouldn't match my collection at all. I found a pretty good deal for the DX06 but unfortunately I would have to sell a figure or two to buy him since I can't spend any unnecessary funds.

    DX06 has some accessories that I like better than DX15, but DX15 is the overall best package.

    I'd have to echo that. DX15 is the overall best package. That serious sculpt/paint is above and beyond the best Depp likeness anywhere.

    Thanks for your input guys. I guess I'll wait for a decent priced DX15 to come along
