Ubisoft teams up again with Mcfarlane toys to bring some highly detailed and nerdgasm worthy Assassin's Creed figures. We received Edward, Blackbeard and Ratonhnhaké:ton. After holding them in my hand and positionning them on my desk, I can say that they are indeed incredibly detailed. Check out these close up shot I took of my Edward Kennway figure:
There are eight figures in total and each will include a code to unlock content in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag which consist mostly of weapons, sails for your pirate ship or special outfits:
Naturally, none of this is essential to the gaming experience of the upcoming Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. It's really just icing on the cake. But seriously, these make great stocking stuffers for you fellow gamer friends and are just plain cool.
They will be available at several retailers, including EB Games, Walmart, Toys R Us, Target, Microplay (Quebec only) and Amazon at the suggested retail price of $16.99 each. An exclusive “Pirate 3-Pack”, featuring Black Bart, Blackbeard and Benjamin Hornigold, will be available exclusively at Toys R Us at the suggested retail price of $39.99.
