This is the model for the release of "AC4: Black Flag" and first part of a diorama (the second part is "Blackbeard" which can be ordered on "Uplay" for 30 quid).
Edward Kenway was a privateer of some note and by the look of him a man of fashion. With his long leather covering assassin's robes (which are now blue and white) and a red flowing sash, Edward stands on a decorated "stone" base with the assassins logo on - alongside a broken tree. On the base are a skull and a long bone.
As with Connor last year this figurine is amazingly details - everything from the wear and tear on the "leather" long coat to the folding of the "material" of the sash and the assassin robes; and the detail on the hidden blade - it's all amazingly done.
The base is fascinating and I have spent several hours looking at the patterning alone. The trunk of the tree is covered with moss and the bark is intricate as is the breakage.
Inside the box you get 4 pistols and Edward's cutlass. The cutlass fits in the loop on Edward's belt and 2 of the pistols fit in his hands.
You also receive a DLC code for 3 in-game items: "Connor Kenway's Sails", "Haytham Outfit" and "Kenway's Unique Dual Swords".
It comes in a great black display box which has silvered decorative writing and edging.
After last year's stunning model this one had a lot to live up to, and it certainly succeeds in my eyes.
