Ubisoft has teamed up with McFarlane Toys for an Assassin's Creed line of highly detailed collectable figures based on the popular franchise.
McFarlane Toys’ Assassin's Creed series 1 will consist of seven figures including the fan favourite characters of Connor and Haytham Kenway. Connor will come as two action figures – one in his Assassin’s Creed III traditional Assassins garb and the second, as Ratonhnhaké:ton in the upcoming “Tyranny of King George” storyline. Each figure will be sculpted in the hyper-detail the award-winning McFarlane is known for with collectors and fans.There's no word in the press release on whether we'll see Ezio or Altair, or even Desmond, but given the toy line name is just Assassin's Creed and not numerated, it's a safe bet we'll see them at some point.
Moreover, the toys themselves will offer unique content for the Assassin's Creed games.
"We're always looking to raise the bar with our figures, and Ubisoft has been a great partner to help make that happen," said McFarlane Toys CEO and creator, Todd McFarlane. "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 colours, or other customisation options. Features like this reward the hardcore fans who buy the figures, and give collectors some added value.”
The figures will be debuting in a couple of toys at the International Toy Fair, so stay tuned for a closer look then.
