Not sure what to think of this. I was really hoping to get a Connor in the same scale as Altair and Ezio. On the other hand the article states they will be 6 inch scale. That made me think ML/DCU scale, but I think McFarlane considers their Halo figs to be 6 inch scale.

Yeah mcf seems to continue the weird articulation to. Why do they include knee articulation when you cant move his legs with these terrible cut joints. I got nearly all the neca figs but i totally skip those. Scale will allready mess it up for me. Quality has a price ubisoft. Sad you didnt consider that when you gave the license to mcf.

I'm almost positive these will be the same scale as Halo and Walking Dead. A plus in my book, as I love the smaller figures.

Wow... The forums have certainly changed a lot since the last time I've been here... and not for the better...

This is crap. Absolutely terrible. It's just like Ubisoft to stab one of their biggest merchandisers in the back for some happy meal knock-offs that McFarlane has become... NECA is the best action figure company out there today. The sooner everyone realizes that, the better.

It was a business move, pure and simple. McFarlane will produce waves of more than one character and these will be everywhere that Halo figures are. So yeah it sucks that NECA doesn't have the brand, but from the way the press release was worded it sounds like McFarlan got the rights to all the AC games and not just AC3.

Not sure how I feel about this on one hand I love the NECA AC figures but always regreted they didn't release more characters and on the other McFarlane will release more figures I just worry they turn out like the crappy walking dead ones.

I agree, seems like all they released was different versions of the main character for the NECA line. The other 4in. figures that came out by Game Stars(was that the name of the company, I forget), they were cool, but lacked some details here and there. I can't wait to see more of these from McFarlane. I'm actually a big fan of their 5" line, They're not too big and for certain lines, they can make vehicles, and they're not too small.

Yeah, you can't put these on a shelf next to the NECA figures, epsecially if you're a 6-7" purist... but I say make yourself a seperate shelf with some other 5" figures and put these guys on there and there ya go!

I liked the variety of characters released but the lack of details among other things were horrible, maybe I have developed a high standard for 4" after collecting Star Wars for so many years anyway I'm gonna remain skeptical about this new line take a wait and see approach if I like what I see I might get a figure here and there I do want a Connor figure loved the design of the outfit.

Honestly from the image they provided, the figure looks like a Chinese knock off. Just look at the legs... Hinged knees with what looks like swivel hips? It doesn't make any sense. Ever since the first Walking Dead figures were released, McFarlane has been dead to me... No pun intended. Look at this Daryl figure and try to tell me it's a quality figure:

A sad excuse for an action figure...

And as far as character selection goes, other than the main assassin from each game what other characters do you want? Can you even name anyone else save for Da Vinci and George Washington? At least NECA made variants so fans could choose which version fit their preference.

And on a final note, just look at the price point. For around 20$ NECA gives us a 7", highly detailed figure with great articulation and accurate accessories. For only 5$ less, McFarlane gives us a figure 1/3 the size, with terrible detail and articulation. It's criminal. The only reason McFarlane gets these licenses is their seniority...

They could release Yusuf Tazim, Cesare, Templar soldier, generic assassin(romans and ottomans), Haytham Kenway among others. Like I said I'm not exactly loving this news I'm just keeping an open mind.
