In a rather misguided attempt to steal booty from passing ships, the Pirate Captain finds himself aboard a ship full of plague-sufferers! Poor Colin can be seen wrapped in his blanket whilst fellow plague victim Dave, informs the Pirate Captain of his error! Both his clothing and grubby brown blanket is made from foam latex, with the blanket featuring internal wiring for added realism. To protect him from the harsh sunlight, Colin is featured here wearing a large ‘straw’ hat made from resin as well as realistic bandages around his silicone hands and feet. His head is made from resin, with plasticine around his eyes and jaw to allow for his expression to be altered during filming. Colin’s body can be posed and positioned via an intricate internal steel skeleton. Due to the delicate nature of this puppet there are a very small number of slight indentations in the plasticine around his jaw and slight cracking on the knees of his trousers, but he otherwise remains in good production used condition. He measures approximately 30cm (11.75”) in length with his blanket measuring approximately 32.5x22cm (12.75x8.75”).

In The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists, Hugh Grant stars in his first animated role as the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain – a boundlessly enthusiastic, if somewhat less-than-successful, terror of the High Seas. With a rag-tag crew at his side and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter to the much coveted Pirate Of The Year Award. It's a quest that takes our heroes from the shores of exotic Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London. Along the way they do battle with the pirate-hating Queen Victoria and team up with a young Charles Darwin, but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure!
