Pirate Captain, aka Captain Sturnbrau
Scourge of the Captain of the dreaded floating hulk; The Whispering Corsair. For time immemorable, land-lubbers and sailors alike dare not speak the ship’s true name which slipped past memory and into legend.
For centuries the Captain had plied the oceans voyaging into new and undiscovered lands. They disappear for years at a time, only for stories to reach civilisation of raids on settlements and pitiless attacks on ships.
No-one knows what dark sorcery keeps Captain Sturnbrau and his unholy crew alive, only that they strive to fathom the answers to questions they have long forgotten…
Toy2R presents a preview of Jon-Paul Kaiser’s original 5″ figure – Captain Sturnbrau from the mysterious ship, The Whispering Corsair.
Jon-Paul has created a unique collection of Toy2R figures using the mythos of the Whispering Corsair to amass his crew. First fans were introduced to the Olaf the Mute (in 8″ Qee Bear form), then teasers of the the First Mate Nathaniel Vigo surfaced (in 5″ Mini Qee form), now to be followed by their leader, Captain Sturnbrau!
Expected for release at this year’s New York Comic Con, Toy2R unveiled the figure at the Grand Opening ceremony of the new Toy2R Shunde office in China. This is the first original production character for Jon-Paul and Toy2R is honored to have collaborated on this project. While there are even more projects being developed for JPK (The Forgotten and The Scribe Mini Qees), the Whispering Corsair collection is a wonderful tribute to the high seas and the mysterious that lie beneath the surface. Expect more surprises surrounding the Captain as the more information develops!
I can’t wait to see the painted figure as that’s the draw with JPK’s outstanding work. Given that the toy has quite abit of detail in it already, it’ll be interesting to see how the black and white paint detail will be applied to the finished piece.
