Ubisoft has inked a licensing deal with McFarlane Toys to produce a brand new series of action figures based on the hit Assassin’s Creed franchise.

Series 1 of the McFarlane Toys Assassin’s Creed line will feature a total of seven action figures. Assassin’s Creed III‘s Connor will be available in two figures, including one decked out in his traditional assassin outfit (pictured above) and one as Ratonhnhaké:ton as seen in the upcoming “Tyranny of King George” DLC expansion storyline. Haytham Kenway is the only other confirmed action figure at this time, leaving four more still to be revealed. Hopefully one will be Aveline from Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation. She totally deserves to be immortalized as an action figure.

Each figure will be around six inches tall and feature approximately 25 points of articulation. Bonus DLC codes will also be included inside each and every box, unlocking exclusive in-game content like weapons and clothing customizations. Figures will range in price between $14.99-$16.99 and are set to go on sale at major retailers and local comic shops across North and South America, Australia and New Zealand beginning this summer.

If you’re in New York on February 10-13, swing by the International Toy Fair for the first live unveiling of McFarlane’s Assassin’s Creed action figure prototypes.
