Assassin’s Creed is to spawn a line of seven action figures thanks to a licensing deal with McFarlane Toys. Two figures have been announced so far – Haytham Kenway and Connor. Connor’s figure will come in two forms – a traditional Assassin’s garb and his Ratonhnhaké:ton outfit from the upcoming Tyranny of King George DLC. Each will stand about six inches tal with 25 points of articulation, and come with a code for exclusive Assassin’s Creed DLC. The figures will debut at the International Toy Fair show, which runs February 10-13 in New York. Expect them in stores in Australia, Canada, Mexico, new Zealand, South America and the US, for approximately $15-$17.
