McFarlane Toys and Ubisoft has just announced a new licensing agreement that will have both companies working together on a new line of action figures based on the popular videogame franchise, Assassin’s Creed.

Series 1 of McFarlane Toys’ Assassin’s Creed series will consist of seven figures that include fan favorite characters Connor and Haytham Kenway. Connor will come in to variants, one in his Assassin’s Creed III traditional Asassin’s garb and the second as Ratonhnhake:ton in the upcoming Tyranny of King George storyline. Each of the figures will be sculpted in the same high-detail process that McFarlane toys are known for.

The Assassin’s Creed line of action figures will all stand approximately six inches tall, and will come with an average of 25 points of articulation. The figures will also come packed with a unique code that unlocks exclusive Assassin’s Creed video game content.

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 explains, “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. “We’re excited to partner with Todd to bring the colorful characters in the Assassin’s Creed universe as action figures to consumers.”
