PoTC Minifigure - Scrum

A member of Queen Anne's Revenge pirate ship, Scrum was a crafty, mandola-playing, Machiavellian pirate. Hardly the sharpest sword in the scabbard, Scrum made up for his life with a natural-born talent for music, and duplicity.

In Lego world, Scrum minifigure appears two times in Set 4194 White Cap Bay and in PoTC Battle Pack. His torso and legs have detailed prints on them with three-piece suit of white colar shirt, dark green inner vest and brown long coat. Scrum is wearing a black tricorn hat and equipped with a brown scabbard and gray cutlass.

Like the character himself in PoTC - On Stranger Tides, Scrum minifigure comes out with flesh colour headpiece and hands. His face is printed with brown beard and goatee. He is seen wearing a necklace with a whistle and a lucky shark's tooth.

Scrum is talking to Jack in Disney's PoTC On Stranger Tides movie.

SW : Loyal Padawan - Barriss Offee

Young Barriss Offee is a jedi from planet Mirial who is also a padawan to Jedi Master Luminara Unduli.
To this date, she appears in two versions; from set 8091 Republic Swamp Speeder 2010 with black hood and black cape, latests one is from set 9491 Geonosian Cannon 2012.

As a Mirialan, Barriss Offee has a unique face with blue lips and tattoos that are a sign of high achievement. LEGO has using a distinctive skin colour of greenish hue to reflect Barriss' alien origins from the planet Mirial. Both versions is equipped with blue lightsaber with silver hilt.

Differences can be seen from both Episode II & III versus Clone Wars version are the colour of the hood and cape which are black versus dark blue; the 2010 version has standard Lego eyes whereas the 2012 version has a big cartoon/manga style eyes. The robes of CW version is also shorter than the old ones.

The printing on the torso also make the latest design has a curvy body :p

Order 66 in Star Wars Episode III had made this young character died in hands of Clone Troopers.
