McFarlane Toys Assassin's Creed Figures Unlockable Content announced!

Ok we have seen the figures... now for the bonus content included in the figures.

Oh and if you haven't seen it..
These are the AC figures listed by McFarlane Toys so far and all of them have some form of bonus content included for Assassin's Creed IV.

Up till now, it was a mystery on what this content will be. 
Well.. the details are finally here..

Unlocked by Edward Kenway action figure
The distinctive Kenway Family Sword hints at its mysterious origins through details such as the iconic crest and eagles on its hilt. Though not the most powerful sword in the game, the Kenway Family Sword is stronger than Edward's starter sword, and will give players an edge when starting out in the harsh Caribbean world of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. 

Unlocked by Haytham Kenway action figure

Give a new look to Edward's standard Assassin robes with this unique dark blue color scheme. Similar to the tailor's dyes of previous Assassin's Creed games, this option recolors Edward's standard outfit in dark blue, with red accents and gold trim. If you're a fan of Haytham from Assassin's Creed III, bring his style into Assassin's Creed IV and customize Edward to match his rebellious son. 

Unlocked by Connor action figure and New York Connor action figure
Edward's grandson, Connor, introduced naval combat to the Assassin's Creed series in Assassin's Creed III -- and now you can bring a dash of Connor's visual style to Assassin's Creed IV. Customize your ship with the distinctive fringe and turquoise accents of these Kanien'kehá:ka-styled sails, and bring a bit of the Aquila to the Jackdaw. 

Unlocked by Blackbeard action figure
In Assassin's Creed IV, Edward encounters a diverse cast of infamous pirates, including the legendary Blackbeard. A master of intimidation, Blackbeard carefully cultivated his frightening appearance, using fear to scare away his enemies. With our Blackbeard action figure, you too can follow Blackbeard's lead. Hoist these dark, stained sails, ripped apart and roughly stitched back together, and give your own ship a horrific style sure to strike fear in the hearts of your foes. 

Unlocked by Benjamin Hornigold action figure
Captain of a large, powerful pirate crew that included the infamous Blackbeard, Benjamin Hornigold exemplified the style of a 1700s naval captain, complete with mutton chop sideburns and navy blue, gold-trimmed, fearnought jacket. Now you can bring this classic naval look to the Jackdaw with these gold-trimmed sails, inspired by the legendary pirate leader. 

Unlocked by Secret Pirate action figure (Available October 2013) 
There's still one more major character and action figure yet to be revealed. We can confirm that he also unlocks a unique set of sails to customize the Jackdaw, but we can't say anything more just yet! Check back for more information soon...

Unlocked by Ratonhnhaké:ton action figure
Earlier this year, the downloadable adventure, The Tyranny of King Washington, took players beyond the main game of Assassin's Creed III, and introduced an alternate-reality version of Connor known only by his original name, Ratonhnhaké:ton. Our Ratonhnhaké:ton action figure will take players beyond the Assassin's Creed games and into the online world of Assassin's Creed Initiates. Find out more about how to get involved with Initiates throughout the year, and get ready to unlock special exclusive online rewards in Initiates with our Ratonhnhaké:ton action figure. Even after the game ends, the rewards just keep coming! 
So there you have it! All 8 figures announced so far will include the bonus content as listed above. Honestly, you weren't be missing too much without these extra content as all of them, except the "ASSASSIN'S CREED INITIATES ACHIEVEMENT", are cosmetic changes only.

Of course if you do plan to get the figures for your collection, then this bonus is definitely pretty cool. You telling me extra content isn't cool? (You can always give it to me, I'm sure I can pass it on to someone who would love it!)
