Raise the Black Flag

This goody arrived for me today from Amazon. Comes in the standard 5-figure box that we've been seeing with the Call of Duty sets (and I assume the Halo Spartan Fire teams 5-packs). 


There isn't much to this set, as it's mainly a way to get 5 extremely well made figures with a small taste of the environment you'd find them in. You get 3 non-specific sailors/ruffians in 3 different skin tones, two with hair and one without. 





This guy is who I'd assume is the leader of the bunch, wearing a Tricorn hat and a swanky armless jacket that just slides over the head like CoD vest and WoW armour, fits snugly. The Hat like the hair uses a round 3mm peg that slots into a compatible square shaped cavity on the top of the skull. 


He may not even be a Captain but he's distinct enough to be a V.I.P/Target for the Assassin. 





Finally we have the Assassin, a nameless member of the Brotherhood. The lower robe section is made from this soft, rubbery piece like the sashes. It allows for unrestricted leg movement as well as making it extremely durable to play. He also has a hidden blade for his left arm for stabby-stabby. 
The figures are all using the same torso, crotch, upper and lower leg sculpts along with the upper arms. The Lower arms have 3 types, regular sleeves on the green arms and the Assassin's right sleeve. While the Cream and blue/grey sleeves have fancier cuffs and the Assassin's left arm is a bracer for the Hidden blade attachment. 


You'll be buying this for the figures who could be the crew for the Gunboat set for the figures in that set to capture. The modular nature of these figures also allows for you to mix and match with any other Assassin's Creed Mega Blok figures and create your own characters. The Brick quality is excellent and I cannot praise the figures enough.

I don't know what to rate it, but I recommend it. 




Bonus: 
An AC head and hood on a CoD body, potential huh?
