Hank the Castaway[1] is a Pirates minifigure that appeared in 6241 Loot Island.

Description

Hank wears a blue bandanna and has a grey beard. His torn, worn-out clothes are the color Reddish Brown, with unique printing on his legs. He holds a Warm Gold telescope.

In 6299 Pirates Advent Calendar, Hank is depicted without his bandana, revealing long grey hair originating from Professor Dumbledore.

Background

According to his LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed bio, Hank is the subject of many rumors about his abilities, past, and association with rats.

The set description for 6241 Loot Island reveals that Hank was shipwrecked, and he now guards the secret cave on Loot Island. In the set's comic, Hank teams up with a pirate to defend Loot Island from a Royal Navy soldier; he uses the catapult to hit the soldier on the head, and then holds the soldier at gunpoint. Afterward, Hank and the pirate roast a fish, and Hank examines a gold coin from the treasure chest.

In LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed, Hank is an attacker with the abilities "Go, Shelly!", "Monkey Business", "Fly Fishing", and "Critical Injury".

Notes

  • He is most likely inspired by Ben Gunn from Robert Louis Stevenson's novel Treasure Island, and his name could be a reference to Robert Zemeckis' film Cast Away, starring Tom Hanks.
