Diamond Select Toys: Barbossa Vinimate ComicWow! Review


Diamond Select Toys dives deeper into Pirates of the Caribbean with this four-inch Vinimate of Barbossa! Based off the newest Pirates of the Caribbean film, this vinyl figure strikes a pose straight from the movie and is sculpted in classic Vinimate block-figure style. It features an articulated neck and comes packaged in a full-color window box, ready for display.

The sculpt on this figure is incredibly detailed. We can see every bit of filigree on Barbossa’s coat, every design on his cuffs, his freakin’ hairstyle! Yeah, the block-figure style fits in with all other Vinimates, but this one stands out on the basis of detail alone. My favorite part has to be Barbossa’s peg leg, which looks just as regal as his wardrobe.

A big part of that regal look is the paint, which is done fantastically. Barbossa has a lot of gold on him, and it is depicted perfectly alongside the rest of his wardrobe. His purple and teal coat blend seamlessly with the gold and it ends up looking gorgeous. The paint job on his face is precise and shows a distinct facial expression, with detail so far as his facial hair.

This is a great item that will look great in any collection. Available this summer, you can pre-order Barbossa now at diamondselecttoys.com!
