To celebrate the new release of the Disney Pirates of the Caribbean Salazar’s Revenge movie, Spin Master have launched a range of toys for their little fans! Now you can set sail with the pirates on Jack Sparrow’s pirate ship, the Ghost Ship or the Ghost Shark Attack with a range of figurines!
We were delighted to receive Jack Sparrow’s pirate ship playset and the Battle figure 5-pack for review. This is definitely a new love from Mr K. He loves playing with the figurines and sets them for an adventure.
This authentic Jack Sparrow’s pirate ship playset comes with a stylised 3” Jack Sparrow figure, firing cannon with two cannon balls and a spooky ghost shark. The ship is well made and comes with a lot of detail inside and outside the ship. At the bottom of the ship, there are three wheels which allow you to push along to create the waves. The flags are made from plastic materials which are durable and will not easily come off. You can move part of the flags and launch the cannon balls. One minor gripe is that I find Jack Sparrow’s figurine doesn’t look like the real Johnny Depp. He looks cartoony and not as charming. He is able to move both upper limbs and his waist to sit down. The sword in his right hand is non-removable which is a little disappointing as I would prefer him to have two free hands to steer his ship. The ghost shark is hollow inside and in a blue translucent colour. This is a fun playset that will appeal to any child who love pirate adventures!
Next we have the Battle figure 5-pack which consists of Captain Salazar, Ghost Crewman, Henry, Jack Sparrow and Carina Smyth. Each of the figurines are armed with their own weapons that are non-removable. They are able to move their upper limbs and waist to sit down. Only some of the figurines’ heads are able to move around whilst some are fixed. The figurines are well made but do not look very realistic. They all have holes in their heels to allow you to place them onto the ship without falling off.
These are definitely great for little fans to play with and it will last for a long time. I love the details on the ships but was disappointed with the look of the figurines. Overall they are well made toys. They are available now in good toy stores and Amazon.
