Things have changed for this film and no longer is he a pirate, but instead a privateer in King George II's court and he now captains the HMS Providence.

In addition to the clothes that transform the actor into Captain Barbossa, the exhibit at the ArcLight Sherman Oaks also had some of his signature weapons on display, including his pistol and sword.

I love the detail on the sword hilt and belt buckle, it really was very cool to see up close.
