More Updates from McFarlane's Assassin Creed Figures

Seems like every time I search for Assassins Creed stuff on BidBadToyStore, I see something new..

This new one popped out when I did a search earlier..

Some Assassin's Creed IV figures..

We have already seen Edward Kenway previously but now there's Captain BlackBeard who will presumably be playing a vital role in the Assassin's Creed IV game. Then there are two more pirate figures who according to the BBTS site are "legendary pirate figures from Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. We don't want to reveal who they are until they've been given a proper introduction by Assassin's Creed developer Ubisoft, but we're sure that you'll recognize both of these notorious characters once they're revealed!"

BBTS is selling these four as a 4-pack and should be available to purchase individually as well.. But.. (There's always a but..) If you get the 4-pack set there is a bonus.
According to the site, "In addition to the four legendary pirate figures, our Pirate 4-pack also includes an exclusive bonus item: a Skull Buckle! Only available in this boxed set, this unique accessory is a replica of the skull-shaped buckle on Edward Kenway's bandolier."

Still a bit undecided about the non-Assassin figures that McFarlane are bringing out. Usually I only get figures of the main characters and with NECA's AC figure line, I didn't have a problem. Hard to reject the non-Assassins figures though, as some of them look to be characters who are important to the plot and if they are giving away DLC content, like they said, and the bonus Skull Buckle as mentioned above, these will be very tempting to get. I'll have some thinking to do while waiting for their release..
