Assassin’s Creed Gets the McFarlane Makeover
Assassin’s Creed fans, it’s happening! McFarlane Toys has partnered with Ubisoft to bring Assassin’s Creed figure to store shelves. The McFarlane Toy’s Assassin’s Creed series 1 will feature seven figures including Connor and Haytham Kenway from Assassin’s Creed III. There will be two figures for Connor, one in his Assassin’s traditional garb and the second one as Ratonhnhaké:ton from the upcoming “Tyranny of King George” DLC. As your usual McFarlane Toys, these will be highly detailed for all fans and collectors alike.
Each figure will stand six inches tall, include 25 points of articulation, and come with exclusive codes that unlock Assassin’s Creed video game content
Todd McFarlane, CEO and founder of McFarlane Toys, said,
“I’m always excited to work with a premiere entertainment company like Ubisoft. Their world-class studios have created some of the most compelling video games in recent memory. The Assassin’s Creed series is a huge hit with gamers, and continues to grow in popularity. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to create high-quality collectibles based on their games, and to bring them to a wide audience at a reasonable price.”
“We’re always looking to raise the bar with our figures, and Ubisoft has been a great partner to help make that happen. These will be the first McFarlane Toys to include integration with the game itself. Our Assassin’s Creed figures will include codes that unlock unique content in game – things like new weapons, clothing colors, or other customization options. Features like this reward the hardcore fans who buy the figures, and give collectors some added value.”
McFarlane Toys’ Assassin’s Creed action figures will cost somewhere between $14.99-$16.99 and will be available at many major stores. No specific release date has been specified, but you should see these action figures before this year ends. Check out the photos below.
