Eagle Vision, passed down from an ancient line of assassins and interminably helpful in figuring out who’s a friend and who’s an enemy, gives people and objects a color-coded aura. Red is for enemies, blue for friends, gold for targets who may be able to help and white for information sources or hiding spots.
Ezio himself has an astounding 38+ points of articulation and three sets of interchangeable hands. The Eagle has articulated wings and a perch to land on. Clamshell packaging.
Welcome to CustomCon 33, the sixth installment to be hosted by TheFwoosh.com and ActionFigurePics.com!
What is CustomCon?
CustomCon is a special presentation of new custom toy creations by customizers around the globe. Ten years in the running, it’s still going strong. Inspired by the presentations of new product by legitimate manufacturers at Toy Fair and other trade shows, CustomCon is a “fake” convention, whereby customizers present their latest creations and recipes as if unveiling a new line of real toys to retailers. It’s always a lot of fun, for both the viewers and the participants.
If this is your first exposure to a CustomCon, click here to see what’s been offered over the past 32 CustomCons.
The new 6″ scale “Legends of Assassin’s Creed” line will be hitting stores next spring, full of all your favorite characters from the games, from Desmond Miles to Leonardo Da Vinci. However, attendees of CustomCon 33 have the chance of snatching two figures from the recently released Assassin’s Creed 3, and Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation, Connor Kenway and Aveline De Grandpre!
These exclusives feature extra weapon accessories that won’t be included in the general release, and each has been hand painted.
I’m getting settled back in after a whirlwind trip to NYC for Toy Fair, so I’ll be posting the remaining pics over the next few days. Up next is NECA – I will probably never forgive them for deep-sixing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles wave 2 figures, but I’ll admit that it’s hard to keep the blood boiling when they continue to put out awesome figures for the lines that have continued to thrive. A new addition this year is a Duke Nukem figure to accompany Duke Nukem Forever. I could make a joke about what the Forever stands for in the game name, but I won’t. I was also really impressed by the new Terminator figures, although I have a tough time finding those in my local TRUs.
They also had some more Gears of War, BioShock, and Claptrap from Borderlands on display. VeeBee was disappointed I missed the Gremlins stuff – I’m not sure how I could overlook those.
It’s great to see more new video game action figures from NECA, and it looks like they’re continuing to try out various articulation schemes.
It’s How You Play…
…But with our new videogame action figures, we still win
2011 is off to a furious start and your friends here at NECA are rested and relaxed after a long holiday break. Oh wait, no we’re not.
That’s right. While you were knee-deep in egg nog and wearing glasses with funny numbers on them, we were working the entire time to continue to bring you all things awesome, and no doubt you’ll find our new action figures from the videogames Borderlands, Crysis 2, Bulletstorm and Splinter Cell: Conviction more than fit the bill.
We’ve got a lot to go through here, folks, so here’s the goods:
Borderlands ClapTrap Action Figure
From the best selling videogame Borderlands comes this highly detailed poseable replica of everyone’s favorite robot, Claptrap. Poseable arms, wheel, and retractable drawer and antenna. Comes with display base.
Splinter Cell: Conviction Sam Fisher 7″ Action Figure
From the bestselling Splinter Cell videogame series comes the first ever action figure of hero Sam Fisher based on his appearance in the latest game, Conviction. Figure stands 6 3/4″ tall, has over 20 points of articulation, and is available in two different variations with different accessories for each.
Bulletstorm Grayson Hunt 7″ Action Figure
From the makers of Gears of War comes one of the most buzzed about new shooters from this year’s E3, PAX, and TGS – it’s Bulletstorm. Lead character Grayson Hunt is highly detailed, 7″ scale, and is fully poseable with PMC rifle, goggles and more.
Crysis 2 Nanosuit 7″ Action Figure
Last but not least, the long awaited follow-up to Crysis brings us a brand new Nanosuit and it is represented with this amazing new action figure. The figure stands 7″ tall and has over 25 points of articulation and comes with the Scar assault rifle.
All of our new figures come in gorgeous clamshell packaging and hit stores in March 2011. For those of a more internetty persuasion, they’ll also be featured on our Amazon storefront.
