A few days ago, I did a review of the LEGO BrickHeadz Captain Jack Sparrow (41593) from the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. I also have in hand the other PotC BrickHeadz set with Captain Armando Salazar (41594) which also comes out on March 17 for LEGO VIP members and the general public on April 1. The set has 119 pieces and retails for $9.99. The contents of the box include two unnumbered bags, a 4×6 plate, and the instructions.
Like with the other LEGO BrickHeadz sets I’ve built so far, the build start with the body. There’s no advanced building techniques there but just stacking of bricks. There are quite a few notable parts used here. One is the printed 1x2x1 brick of Salazar’s waistcoat which has some metallic silver on it as well. Next to it are some printed 1×1 metaillic silver round tiles. These parts are pretty rare as they appear in only four other sets.
The arms are pretty the same as other BrickHeadz using the 1×2 plates with clip for the hands. There are some light gray 1/4 circle tiles that are used for the sleeves and these are pretty rare as well.
I think the head is the most interesting part of the Captain Armando Salazar BrickHeadz. The face is pretty simple but there is a 2×4 printed tile for his cracked skin. The hair is an interesting build using a lot of slopes pieces for his flowing hair.
If you saw my review of the Silent Mary (71042), you would see that he has a clear head for the minifigure and the designers have tried to do the same thing with the back of his head with the exposed look. The only thing that bugs me here are the random usage of color which includes a trans-green 2×2 brick and the 2×2 tan bricks. Normally if the head was covered up, it wouldn’t make much of a difference but since the designers are going for a ghostly look, using some trans-clear parts would’ve made more sense.
Of course lastly, you get the stand that the BrickHeadz come with which includes a printed tile designating that this one is from the first series.
Even though the LEGO BrickHeadz Captain Armando Salazar (41594) is mostly black and white with some grays, I like the ghostly look of him. There are plenty of useful rare pieces that are used and this set is the cheapest way to get them. Like I mentioned before, back of the head seems to be a bit out of place, more specifically the trans-green brick.
