NECA has posted a new photo and some info for their upcoming Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood Ezio Onyx Figure.
He’s a natural born killer
Not that Ezio Auditore — the main character in Ubisoft’s mega-franchise, Assassin’s Creed — was lacking for “sneaky,” but we thought it only fair to capture him at his most stealth yet. From Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood comes this all-new Ezio 7″ action figure in his Onyx Costume!
Released near the end of 2010 to massive acclaim from critics and gamers alike, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood is the second installment in the huge and winding trilogy (it’s the third game overall in the series; pretty complicated) of Ezio Auditore. It’s a story of death, time, desire, power and, well, even more death, but it’s made for one of the most enjoyable gameplay experiences ever, already influencing countless other games, and NECA is thrilled to be able to bring you this figure that around the office we’ve given the codename “Ezio Onyx.”
It’s a fair enough description of what the figure is — Ezio in his Onyx Costume — but that’s hardly even the beginning of the story when it comes to Ezio Onyx. Standing nearly 7″ tall, he has over 30 points of articulation, from his neck down to the folds in his feet. Not only that, but Ezio comes with a crossbow and has three sets of interchangeable hands, in case one pair get tired holding that crossbow, he’s got backups at the ready!
It slices! It dices!
Coolest of all, just like his Ivory-Costumed counterpart, Ezio Onyx has retractable blades on each of his arms that reenact his trademark stealth attacks! What could possibly go better with a stealth-mode Onyx Costume Ezio action figure than retractable blades? The short answer is nothing. The long answer? Nothing twice.
NECA’s Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood Onyx Costume Ezio figure hits shelves mid-June — though I hear if you check out NECA’s Amazon store, there are some available now. Keep it tuned to your favorite action figure wholesaler for updates on Assassin’s Creed and all your favorites games, movies and more!
