New Assassin's Creed Action Figure Line
Ubisoft teamed up with McFarlane Toys to create a series of Assassin's Creed Toys. The line of hyper-detailed toys will feature 7 figures including Connor and Haythem Kenway. Here's what Todd McFarlane - creator of Spawn and CEO of McFarlane Toys - had to say about the partnership:
“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.”
The line of action figures will hit shelves this Summer.
