Poor Knoest...

Kapitein Knoest is his Dutch name, and in the United Kingdom, he was called Captain Roger, but North-America knew him as Captain Redbeard - and it's not hard to see why. ;o)

The Pirates line was the first theme where LEGO experimented with the as-unoffensive-as-possible look of their minifigs, and with Kapitein Knoest, they really went all-out...

Besides giving him messy, red beard, they gave him a wooden leg, replaced his left hand with a metal hook, and as if that wasn't bad enough already, they also took out his left eye and gave him an eyepatch...

Poor Knoest... And they wonder why he became a pirate??

Stay tuned!
