I didn't realize there was a Shay Cormac figure until James blogged about finding one. Thanks, James! Assassin's Creed Rogue was a sort of odd duck game. It was released at the same time as Unity, but on the last gen systems, and it got basically no promotion at all. But I thought it was the better game, serving as a bridge between III and Black Flag. Shay is an Assassin turned Templar, and this is the Templar outfit that he wears on the cover. Shay's well armed with a sword, a dagger, two pistols, and a rifle. Oddly, he doesn't have a hidden blade. Even though he switched sides to the Templars, he kept using a hidden blade in the game, so it as an odd omission. But it's a McFarlane figure, so it looks great.
