and here's the Pirates 3-Pack from McFarlane Toys' Assassin's Creed series 1 (A bit of AC IV Spoilers in this post)
I had initially decided to skip this when they first came out, as I wasn't too interested in collecting non-Assassin figures.
But, it all changed after playing AC IV of course..
Benjamin Hornigold, who was just a regular pirate joined the Templar forces mid-way in the game making him an important character in the Assassin-Templar war.
Black Bart, however turned out to be a Sage.. who were introduced as a 3rd faction in the age-old Assassins-Templar war. Who knows? This could be my first, of many, Sage figures I'll own.. depending on how Ubisoft decides to go ahead with the storyline..
While I wasn't too sure about the first 2 figures, I was quite keen on the BlackBeard figure even before I played AC IV. It was evident he was going to be an integral part of the game, appearing in several trailers together with Edward Kenway.
Was considering getting the single figure pack for BlackBeard, but it turned out to be a good decision that I waited..
A sad moment when he was killed, but he went down like in the legendary stories that we have all heard as a kid..
A great addition to the collection.. I enjoyed AC IV a lot because of the pirate theme and these figures will be a good memory of the game.
With more Templar figures in this line, Haytham Kenway and also the upcoming Shay Cormac, Benjamin Hornigold will be joining them. Hopefully we will see more Sages and figures as well!
Here's the 3 once again..
