The Assassin’s Creed Line by McFarlane Toys started off slowly and now is picking up the pace with Series 3 being released a few months after Series 2.
In this series we’ll be getting Assassin’s Creed Unity Arno, Assassin’s Creed Altair, Assassin’s Creed Revelations Ezio, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Ah Tabai and Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag Edward Kenway (Mayan Outfit). It should be noted that Ah Tabai is a Walgreens Exclusive and Edward Kenway will be a Target Exclusive.
I’ve taken to this line very well and they are pretty good figures, though they are not on the same level as NECA, but they are close enough.
Altair is the protagonist from the original game and for the most part they have done a really good job with the figure. The only details that are missing is the throwing knives from his shoulder, the knife that’s sheathed on his back, and his hood looks a bit too big. Aside that he’s a fantastic looking figure. He’ll come with the Assassin’s Blade, Longsword (which can be sheathed) and four throwing knives that are stored on his chest. I really love the detail on this figure.
Ezio was the protagonist from II, Brotherhood and Revelations. NECA did brilliant figures of him, and McFarlane are taking a stab at my favorite iteration Revelations Ezio. I really loved this costume and McFarlane have done a really good job at recreating it. He’s got most of the details that the NECA version had. He’ll come with a Sword, Knife, two Assassin’s Blades and interchangeable hands, which is a first for the line.
I’m not exactly sure who Ah Tabai is and what role he plays in the game but I have seen the character and he does look like him. He does look very tribal and his costume does look very layered and textured. The only accessory that he’ll come with is the spear. The sculpt looks great.
I have to say I really like the look of this iteration of Edward. I’ve only started playing the game and I know this outfit is unlockable within the video game. It’s sort of a steam punk looking outfit with the metal parts on it. It does look really good and I really like the look of it. It’s a different head sculpt from series 1 Edward. I have to say he somewhat resembles a young Dennis Quaid. He comes with four basic pistols and the iconic pistol sword.
All the figures will come with a code to unlock exclusive content (all come with avatar’s and 20 points except for Arno who will come with a code for an alternate costume).
These figures are available or will be released in your area soon and if your a fan of this series these figures they are a must have. I know I’ll be getting them.
