‘Pirates Of The Caribbean 5’ New Posters: LEGO Set Shows Salazar’s Glorious, Skeletal Ship [PHOTO]By Donna Mills
"Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales" isn't meant to be enjoyed on the big screen only; fans can also play with it -- albeit in Lego form. The Lego version of Captain Salazar's (Javier Bardem) ghost ship, the Silent Mary, has been revealed to the public and it's glorious.
The Lego version of the Silent Mary was displayed at the New York Toy Fair last weekend. The 2,300-piece model involves a highly detailed 18-inch tall ship measuring 26 inches from bow to stern. You can check out photos of the toy set on Yahoo!
The most striking aspect of Lego's Silent Mary is its skeletal hull that can open wide. The ship has a decaying design and comes with a collapsible main mast, movable rudder, two masts on both ends, tattered sails, a detailed quarterdeck and a lengthy bowsprit with crow's nest and mast.
Accompanying the ship is a rowboat with two oars, weapons and accessories. There are eight mini-figures (Captain Jack Sparrow, Henry, Carina, Lieutenant Lesaro, Captain Salazar, Officer Magda and Officer Santos) that owners can place on the Silent Mary or on the rowboat for display purposes.
Lego's Silent Mary set will be available for purchase on April 1 at $199.99, just in time for the fifth installment's May 26 release date in theaters. The company will also sell two new "Brickheadz" characters based on Jack and Salazar that can be bought for $9.99 per piece.
"Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales" will follow the ghostly Salazar as he escapes the Bermuda Triangle to look for the Trident of Poseidon, which gives its owner authority to control the seven seas.
Salazar's mission also includes killing every pirate at sea -- a plan that doesn't bode well on Jack. The latter must find the trident first and to do that, he must team up with the smart astronomer Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario) and the stubborn Royal Navy sailor Henry (Brenton Thwaites).
Those looking to find Jack aboard his beloved Black Pearl will be disappointed, though. The iconic pirate only has a small and dilapidated ship called the Dying Gull.
New character posters showcasing Jack, Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), Salazar, Henry and Carina were revealed recently. Check out the images below.
Directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, "Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales" will feature returning cast members Orlando Bloom as Will Turner, Kevin McNally (Gibbs) and Stephen Graham (Scrum) alongside Depp and Rush.
