Though hundreds may have come before him, Ezio Auditore was perhaps the greatest Assassin to join and lead the Brotherhood. His exploits changed the world and set him on a course that spanned centuries. To honour his legacy, you can now own a new 6-inch figure of the great man as he was before the end, an accomplished veteran and an Assassin Mentor.
With Assassin’s Creed III on the way, we can still look back and recall the glory days of Ezio Auditore in Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood.
Standing about 8 inches tall, this ENCA rendering features incredible detail in the sculpting, but shows Ezio in his Eagle Vision form, a pale, spectral blue. He still features the awesome costume and multiple hands and comes with an eagle, ready to lead the way to viewpoints and remain a faithful, if unwitting, companion along the assassin’s journey.
The first Assassin’s Creed was a solid adventure, weaving together the timelines of Altair and Desmond for a story that spanned centuries. But it was Ezio Auditore da Firenze who truly made the franchise, bringing charisma and charm along with his deadly hidden blade and thirst for revenge. It’s no surprise that Sideshow chose him as their first Assassin’s Creed statue:
The statue is about 14 inches tall, depicting Ezio as he leaps from a fallen pillar to attack an unseen foe. Every detail is accurate to the game and the impressive character design of the series.
You can get your Player Select Ezio Auditore TWO ways: Evony or Ivory. They’re the third series of 7-inch Assassin’s Creed figures, adding to the existing Ezio and Altair figures. Now, if you’re a fan of the series, we’re figuring that you’ve already got your hands on the latest installment, ASSASSIN’S CREED REVELATIONS, which came out yesterday.
No matter which outfit you prefer, though, both Ezio figures feature swappable hands for a selection of weapons worthy of an Assassin. The poseability of these figures is also pretty impressive, especially when you take into account the detail on the clothing. Definitely a good buy for anyone who loves the worlds the game creates.
