Series 2 Assassin's Creed figures from McFarlane spotted!

Spotted these new figures from the McFarlane's Assassin's Creed series! These figures will apparently be included in Series 2, possibly among others.

As rumoured, Adewale from AC IV makes a first appearance as a figure!
Looks good but a bit too skinny I feel. He needs to be more buffed.

And there's Aveline from AC Liberation
As I mentioned before, there isn't a better time to release a Aveline figure than now. Possibly, someone at McFarlane thinks so too!

Completing the trio.. we have another variant of Connor.
This will be the 4th variant of Connor if you are counting. Figure looks exactly the same as the Connor figure, except for the head with the hood drawn backwards.
I'm cool with variants.. In fact, I welcome them. It will be interesting for the collection to have variations of a single Assassin, as long as they don't overdo it.

Several repaints of the same figure over and over again can lead to fatigue but if they carefully add a couple of unique variations together with new Assassin figures, it will be cool.

I have only spotted these 3 so far, but there could be more figures for Series 2, if they follow in the footsteps of Series 1. Possibly a couple of supporting characters from the games?

Great to see McFarlane fulfilling their promise of releasing Assassin figures apart from the main four. Adewale and Aveline have a decent base of fans and they will be happy. 

Now to see if McFarlane can go up a notch with Assassins from the first 2 games... A collection of all the Assassins is still a dream that most companies have failed till now. However, McFarlane seem to be on the right track..
