A line of articulating Assassin's Creed action figures from McFarlane Toys will debut this summer, the model manufacturer and publisher Ubisoft announced today.
The Assassin's Creed series 1 toys will feature two characters from the newest entry in the series, Assassin's Creed 3: protagonist Connor Kenway and his father, Haytham Kenway. Two different Connor figures will be available — he's sporting his normal Assassin robes in one (see photos above), and wearing his traditional Native American garb as Ratonhnhaké:ton in the other. The second outfit will appear in the upcoming Tyranny of King Washington expansion, the first episode of which launches Feb. 12.
Every Assassin's Creed figure will come with a code that unlocks exclusive in-game content. The unlocks include small items like new weapons and clothing colors. According to McFarlane Toys CEO Todd McFarlane, it will be the company's first line of video game figures to feature direct integration with the game in that sense.
"We're always looking to raise the bar with our figures, and Ubisoft has been a great partner to help make that happen," he said in a press release announcing the figures.
The toy line consists of 6-inch figures with an average of 25 points of articulation, allowing owners to pose the toys however they choose. They'll be available in stores throughout the United States, Canada, South America, Australia, Mexico and New Zealand, at prices ranging from $14.99 to $16.99. McFarlane Toys will showcase the first prototype figures during the American International Toy Fair next week.
