So I managed to get my hands on one of the coolest gaming merchandise that is floating around. Ubicollectibles has really outdone themselves with this figurine. “Arno: The Fearless Assassin” is a new collector’s piece inspired by the next chapter of the Ubisoft franchise namely, Assassin’s Creed Unity.
We’ve got a contest for you guys in case you wanted to grab one of these for yourselves. Watch the video below to know what you need to do!
The figurine portrays Arno at the foot of the barricades. In a rather eloquent but deadly pose, you can see Arno pointing his sword out to enemies and concealing a gun in the other to surprise his foes.
Also added in the box is an additional digital content which can be used in the game. Its a code that you can use to claim “The Fearless Assassin’s Outfit.” Basically has an assassin in another outfit (the one of the side of the box). The product comes in two parts: the whole figurine itself and the sword. Once you take the two items out of the box, you’ll see that the sword fits into Arno’s hand.
The quality of the figurine is maintained to its smallest components as well. From the sword Arno holds to the creases on his clothing to the crest on his belt is top notch. Even if you’re not a fan of the game, this is something you still wouldn’t mind having this work of art on your desk.
Today I also played a few levels of Assassin’s Creed Unity and learnt a lot about the protagonist, Arno. In the start you play as Arn0 when he was a kid, who belongs to the aristocracy and son of a very important and reputed man among that class. Witnessing his fathers death, Arno remains scarred for the remainder of his life as about 15 years later he still struggles to face his fathers death.
Long story short, he gets set up for a murder, get thrown into jail, meets an old assassin who tells him that his father was one too and that Arno should defend his honor and join the creed. And so he does. The charismatic leader and skilled swordsman is on a path to redemption and will stop at nothing to uncover the truth about the forces controlling the Revolution for their own good.
– Charismatic pose, enhanced by a set of discernible textures and materials
– The Crest on his belt and hood show his allegiance to the Creed
– Sword, phantom blade and gun: represent his basic amour in the game
– Height 24cm
I have to give this figurine a thumbs up. It really is something looks super awesome and quite genuine at the same time. The close ups should give you more than an idea of how well and with how much care this product was made.
