I sense a rather large profit margin being sucked in by MR removing the winds from many a Captain Jack Sparrow costume sellers!
Jack Sparrow Pirate Beads Available for Pre-Order Next Week!

Following the success of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest at the box office and on DVD, Master Replicas is pleased to announce its first Pirates replica for 2007 – the Jack Sparrow Pirates Beads. This blister carded item is the next in MR’s hugely successful line of blister carded Pirates replicas, and will be available this spring – in time for the third installment of the trilogy!!
If you’re going to sail with the Brethren, be sure to wear pirate beads in your hair.
Wherever they adventure on the Seven Seas, the Pirate Lords never sail forth without their personal sacred “Piece of 8.” It is the object each once used to bind Calypso and swear allegiance to the “Pirate’s Code.”
Jack Sparrow’s “Piece of 8” is a cord of Moroccan beads and an antique coin that hangs from the top his head. Each bead represents a swashbuckling adventure Jack’s had – or a shore he’s sailed to. It’s the perfect “Piece of 8 for Jack,” who is a bit of a dandy and likes his “accessories.” If only it didn’t keep swinging in his eyes every time he’s in the middle of a defensive maneuver.
For fashion-savvy pirates, Jack Sparrow’s Pirate Beads are now available as an authentic replica from Master Replicas. Add them to your collection to capture a bit of Jack’s dashing flair.
The Jack Sparrow Pirate Beads will retail for $9.99 and will be available for pre-order beginning on January 10, 2007 at 9 am PST for members of the 2006 and 2007 MR Collectors Society! It will be made available to the general public for pre-order the following day, Janauary 11, 2007 at 9 am PST.
