Players have come to expect a few things from Assassin’s Creed games: a fair if increasingly slim selection of stabbing, a medley of workshop tools designed for stabbing, flailing plot threads which will inevitably be contorted into a sequel, and perhaps most importantly, a gravity-defying leap of faith into a bale of plot-sensitive cushioning.
The folks over at the somewhat redundantly titled games retailer, GAME, have those leaps of faith down pat, as evidenced by their (which is to say, Ubicollectible's) latest Ezio figure. The 39-centimeter figure marks the first time the series’ iconic defiance of physics has been immortalized in plastic, though Ezio and other Assassin’s Creed 2 characters have been turned into figures in the past.
“Defying the laws of gravity, the figurine shows Ezio launching into a dive from the top of a church to perform the Assassins’ emblematic Leap of Faith,” the figure’s page reads. “An essential piece for all collectors, the form of the figurine is [a] technical triumph, sure to make an impression when placed at a height.”
