Asterix - Red Beard Figurine
Red Beard, Captain of the Pirates 2.5"(6.35cm) plastic figurine. Please note this is not a toy and not intended for children.
Since the album Asterix the Gladiator, a group of pirates appear in nearly every story, and their ship sinks at almost every meeting. Originally conceived as a joke, the pirates' appearance was so successful that they were fully integrated in the Astérix series. They were also featured in both the 1968 animation film Asterix and Cleopatra and the 2002 live-action film Asterix & Obelix: Mission Cleopatra, as well in three other animations: Asterix in Britain, Asterix Conquers America, and Asterix and the Vikings.
