Penguin Random House
Hitting stores in the US and Canada on December 1, Assassin’s Creed Underworld is the latest gripping novel in the series by Oliver Bowden.

Go on a complete visual exploration of the entire Assassin’s Creed franchise, including the games, spin-offs, downloadable content, comics and collectible figures with Assassin’s Creed: The Complete Visual History, a new book published by Insight Editions and set to release on October 13.


McFarlane Toys
McFarlane Toys will feature all-new Assassin’s Creed figures at their booth, #1526, including Shay Cormac of Assassin’s Creed Rogue, and Jacob Frye, the brash and reckless protagonist from Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.

TriForce
TriForce will be showcasing for the first time the Assassin’s Creed Syndicate - Jacob Frye Premier Scale Statue, in greyscale, at their booth #636. Intricately crafted by the artisans at TriForce and cast in polystone, the statue measures 14” in height, and weighs in at 10 pounds.

I’ve had this for a long while, but this here’s my polystone Kagura statue. Overlooking the long neck the others suffer from, and the notion that Kagura wouldn’t have any reason to be tanned up in her winter uniform, It’s essentially the best one out of the other Azumanga polystone figures Toy’s Works released, notably through the comparatively interesting pose and facial expression.

It’s kinda heavy.

“It is a talisman, a powerful spell lies upon it. If any but a dwarf reads the runes on the stone, they will be forever cursed, or not. Depending on whether you believe that kind of thing. It’s just a token - a rune-stone. My mother gave it to me so I’d remember my promise.”

A couple of people were asking about action figures, and someone asked “What would you like to own that you’ll probably never get your hands on?”

My answer is easily SOTA’s giant Cthuhlu statue. Made out of the most insane polystone ever mined, and chiseled by a madman who’s name is long forgotten, this sombre effigy of our dark and dreaming space god is incredibly rare. You can’t find it on ebay, amazon, nowhere…its like it never really existed at all! However, I reckon that all 450 of them that were made were all purchased by a cabal of fancy-pants New England socialites that are probably undergoing some super cool Miskatonic ritual right now! AND I’M MISSING IT!
