Lindberg Model kits: Jolly Roger Series: 2nd & 3rd Releases!

Lindberg welcomes 2 more 1:12 scale figure kits aboard Jolly Rogers.  Because of the popularity of last year’s of the Jolly Roger Series: Hex Marks The Spot, not only will we be doing a second run but we are also releasing the next 2 in the series: Dismay Be The End and In The Pinch of Peril.  Each kit portrays a skeleton pirate posed mid struggle within a beautifully detailed scene.

Abandoned by his crew and shackled to a stone, he was left as gator bait for “Dismay Be The End”.   The pirate skeleton sits on a mound of sand, chained to a rock, guarding a barrel of grog.  Strewn around him are bones and the remains of some creature.  A hunger alligator is lunging for his leg.  A rubber band powered sword chops at the furious beast.  The kit sits at 5″ tall and 10″ wide.  Bonus 1:1 pirate coin and medallion are included.

As the sand pulls him deeper, a giant crab is looking for a bite.  He has found himself “In The Pinch of Peril”.  The seconds skeleton tries to pull him free, but instead pulls his arm out of the socket. The kit sits at 6″ tall and 6″ wide.  Bonus 1:1 pirate coin and medallion are included.

    Look like fun models. Always glad when more Lindberg comes out. Can we have the “Robert E Lee” repoped now pretty please?!They’re going for a fortune right now online.

    The box art/layout is absolutely fantastic! Gorgeous use of colour and imagination! The kits themselves were a lot of fun to build and paint! I highly recommend these to anyone looking for something different!

    I send my thanks to you folks at R2 for bringing these fun kits into the light of day again. I built them when I was a kid, and will be building them again (a lot better this time!) with the Lindberg pirate skull as the centerpiece. Fingers are crossed and wallet is ready, hoping you’ll be able to finish the series (2 more left after these, right?)

    I might as well ask, is there even a possibility of the Haunted Mansion kits (similarly rebranded, likely) in the future? Are the molds even available?
