Redbeard's cutscene in LEGO Racers

It is revealed that in the LEGO Racers video game, Captain Redbeard is a competent race driver. He is one of the circuit champions of the game, as well as the host of the tutorial circuit of the game. He and his car are unlockable after you finish first on his circuit overall. Coincidentally, Governor Broadside(Actually Admiral Woodhouse), Captain Redbeard's old nemesis, is one of the four other CPU racers from his circuit. Redbeard's preferred brick colour is red and he uses the basic cannonball attack (this coincides with his name, beard and also the fact he is is a pirate).

The LEGO Movie

Captain Redbeard can be seen briefly in the real world as The Man Upstairs looks at the "Do not touch" sign on Pirate's Cove. Descriptions This is a description taken from Do not modify it. (visit this item's product page)

Captain Redbeard is the toughest of the pirates. The old sea dog has plundered more forts and sailed for more years than he has teeth in his mouth. Which frankly doesn’t say that much. But you get the point.
