Jack Sparrow will be making his debut with Captain Barbossa December 2007 at authorized WDCC dealers participating in the Captain Barbossa Event. There will be at least one dealer display of Captain Jack Sparrow offered to participating dealers in the Captain Barbossa Premiere Event, possibly more quantities available at these participating dealers to purchase and take home during that winter premiere weekend. Captain Jack will then be more widely available following the event at authorized WDCC dealers.

Each piece can be displayed on its own, or together as a pair. With Pirates plundering the year, a Winter Premiere Event will be held in lieu of the traditional Fall Premiere Event.

I'm glad that Captn Jack will be available at the same time as Barbosa. I would rather get both at the same time. Barbosa is amazing. I hope collectors will get this one when available. I think this one will be on the "wants list" for future collectors. Especially since there is talk of a Pirates 4.
