McFarlane Toys Developing New Assassin’s Creed Action Figure LineFebruary 7, 2013
McFarlane Toys and Ubisoft team up to bring fans some awesome Assassin’s Creed figures.
McFarlane Toys and Ubisoft have announced the development of a brand new line of Assassin’s Creed action figures, based on Assassin’s Creed 3.
The McFarlane Toys Assassin’s Creed Series 1 will feature protagonist Connor and his father Haytham Kenway. Connor will have two variations- one outfitted in the traditional assassin’s robes and another (as Ratonhnhaké:ton) based on the design from the upcoming DLC The Tyranny of George Washington. This line of figures will stand about six inches tall, with over 25 points of articulation, and will even come with codes to download DLC for the game.
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.”
Todd continues, ”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 is renowned for their creativity, authenticity and incredibly detailed action figures”, said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing, Ubisoft. ”Were excited to partner with Todd to bring the colorful characters in the Assassins Creed universe as action figures to consumers.”
The McFarlane Toys’ Assassin’s Creed Series 1 action figures will be available for $14.99-$16.99 , at major retailers including Walmart, Target, Toys “R” Us, GameStop, Amazon, local comic book stores, and more.
