The comic book artist and toy maker has collaborated with Ubisoft.
McFarlane Toys showcased the Assassin's Creed series 1 line of action figures at Toy Fair 2013, which will consist of seven figures including the fan favorite 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. Todd McFarlane, CEO and Founder, talks about the new toys in this exclusive video interview.
The Assassin Creed figure line of figures will stand approximately six inches tall, include an average of 25 points of articulation, and will come with a unique code that unlocks exclusive Assassin's Creed video game content.
Assassin's Creed has grown to become Ubisoft’s fastest-selling IP of the current console generation. Initially launched in 2007, the first four Assassin's Creed games have sold more than 40 million units worldwide, and the franchise is now established as one of the best-selling series ever. The fifth game, Assassin's Creed III, launched in October 2012, and is now the fastest-selling game in the company's history, with total sell-through topping the 7 million mark worldwide just one month after its release.
Recognized for having some of the richest, most engrossing storytelling in the industry, Assassin's Creed transcends video games, branching out into other entertainment experiences including comic books, Facebook games, novels, short films and more. The series celebrated its fifth anniversary in 2012, and an Assassin's Creed feature film is currently in development.
McFarlane 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.”
