For months, we've been teasing fans that all of our Assassin's Creed action figures will unlock exclusive video game content. This past Friday, during the Assassin's Creed panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2013, Todd McFarlane himself revealed the first information about our unlockable content program. Now that the news is out, it's time to spread the word!
Each individually packaged McFarlane Toys Assassin's Creed action figure unlocks a different item in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Simply enter the unique code into Ubisoft's Uplay service and follow the prompts to claim your reward. From new sails for your pirate ship, to new colors for your Assassin's robes, to a unique and powerful weapon, collectors will be rewarded with an array of personalization and customization options!
KENWAY FAMILY SWORD
Unlocked by Edward Kenway action figure (Available August 2013)
The distinctive Kenway Family Sword, given to Edward, 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.
DARK BLUE OUTFIT FOR EDWARD
Unlocked by Haytham Kenway action figure(Available August 2013)
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 (Available August 2013) and New York Connor action figure (Available October 2013)
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.
The New York Connor figure is a Walgreen’s Exclusive.
Unlocked by Blackbeard action figure (Available October 2013)
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 (Available October 2013)
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.
