Last night, Disney gathered a group of press folk in New York City to unveil its new line of toys for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides as part of a 2011 Toy Fair preview. A LEGO-based video game from TT Games, the same folks behind all of those awesome franchise-based LEGO, was on display — you can check out the trailer below — as were a range of action figures and Pirates-themed LEGO collections. There was also a life-size LEGO-fied Jack Sparrow — more than 150,000 blocks! — complete with LEGO sword and magical LEGO compass.
I didn’t put my hands on much other than the game, but the action figures and LEGO sets all look plenty cool. The latter, because LEGOs are always cool — that is a verifiable fact. And the former because each figure includes a blacklight accessory which, when pointed at the toy, reveals a hidden zombie form. You can see an example in the bottom-most image below. And of course you can get a sampling of what else will be coming to toy lover’s in advance of the film’s May 20 release.
