NECA Announces Assassin’s Creed II Ezio Figures

Robokillah picked the Square Enix version of Ezio for the Fwoosh Best of SDCC article, but if he was looking for less expensive alternatives to the Hot Toys Ezio, NECA may have just the figures.

A Real Renaissance Man

NECA’s got an Ezio for every taste

Assassin’s Creed II is one of our favorite action games ever, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to show off our two new figures of the main character, Ezio!

He might be the most enduring game nobleman since Simon Belmont, and in ACII, Ezio Auditore da Firenze is inhabited by Desmond Miles, who lives out genetic memory in Renaissance Italy from the future via the Animus 2.0. Sounds complicated, and it is, but what it rounds out to is one of the coolest and most intricate games ever, and the winner of Best Action Game at the 2009 Spike Video Game Awards.

Our figure of this highly requested fan favorite stands 7” tall and has over 20 points of articulation. Ezio is available in two different versions, Standard or Black, and each figure features retractable wrist blades and intricate, game-accurate costume design and detail.

Ezio is set to feature in the next sequel to Assassins Creed, dubbed Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, which is due November 12, 2010 from Ubisoft, and our assortment of figures ships in September and of course will also be featured on our Amazon storefront.

San Diego Comic-Con 2010 Most Wanted – Sandman

The 2010 San Diego Comic-Con is one day away and we’re writing down the things we are looking forward to the most! If you’ve never been to Comic-Con, I have to say it is one of the craziest places to be if you’re a fan of comic books, movies, television and most important to us: TOYS!

In this “Super Bowl” of geekdom, we get a lot of first peeks at various companies’ future toy releases. Here’s what I’m looking forward to seeing!

Masters of the Universe Classics (Mattel)

We got a lot of good stuff from this line this year. Last year Battle Cat was the star of the Con for me, as was seeing Teela and Trapjaw. This year they are supposed to show the same amount of figures they showed last year and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us! I’m hoping to see Man-E-Faces, Panthor, Mantenna and maybe some vehicles!!

NECA Announces More BioShock Figures for Summer

I know Sandman likes these (see his Big Sister and Little Sister review), but it’s difficult for me to appreciate them fully without ever having played the game.

Shocked Again

NECA Shines Light on New BioShock Figures and Replicas!

Hot on the heels of our Big Daddy Bouncer plush replica and the EVE Hypo Syringe, we’ve got a whole new wave of BioShock items due this summer!

Based on the 2k Games smash hit, BioShock 2, our latest wave of BioShock items are bigger and more detailed than ever before — and in the case of the Subject Delta plush, also more adorable.

At over seven inches tall, Subject Delta is the sequel to the Big Daddy Bouncer plush replica. It perfectly captures the look of Little Sister’s doll from the game. Comes complete with a baseball head, corkscrew drill arm and a wristwatch face.

For those looking for a little more action (figures), we’ve got our Series 2 assortment, which features an Eleanor Lamb and Little Sister two pack and a 7″ Ladysmith Splicer that comes with a tommy gun, rolling pin and a removable mask. The Little Sister and Eleanor Lamb stand 3 3/4” and are fully articulated. Accessories include ADAM syringes and two small Big Daddy dolls for the girls to hold.

And then it’s time to get deluxe. Big Daddy Rosie is loaded with articulation and tanks that plug into the back. This enormous figure also comes with the Rivet Gun accessory that she can hold in her right hand. This is the biggest and baddest Big Daddy yet!

All these new BioShock items will hit stores late June or July and will also be featured on our Amazon storefront.
