DAM TOYS has had quite a bit of success to date with their line-up of Assassin’s Creed one sixth scale figures and their latest offering in the series is the main protagonist of Assassin’s Creed III, Connor; otherwise known as Ratonhnhake:ton. For video game fans and 1:6 scale figure collectors there’s always a shortage of main stream characters that get a release by a major company so it’s nice to see DAM TOYS continuing to explore this line-up of Assassin’s Creed figures. Fingers crossed with the success of these figures they are able to secure other popular video game licenses, too. It would be nice to see releases more commonly for smash hit PS4 or Xbox One titles where there is clearly a demand for collectibles or merchandise.
Previous releases by DAM TOYS in this line-up of Assassin’s Creed figures have been: Altair the Mentor, Edward Kenway and Aguilar from the Assassin’s Creed movie is upcoming and due to release in the next few months. If you have never purchased a figure DAM TOYS before one thing that most sixth scale collectors often say to describe the company is that they are “Hot Toys quality” which means in essence you can expect the same level of detail in the head sculpt and costume, accessories, etc that you have come to expect from Hot Toys as a company.
Another major bonus with DAM TOYS figures is the amount of accessories that are included with most figures – it’s a ton! And the quality of the figure stand is more than just a plain ol’ base. As with most 1:6 scale figure releases, tracking a unit down after pre-orders close at most major retailers is tough and these figures have proven to be no exception! Have a look at secondary market prices (eBay, Facebook groups) for Edward Kenway for example compared to the price he was available for at the time of Pre-Order.
