Excited about the potential of an HD Assassin's Creed Collection when you heard the news of Ubi trademarking assassinscreedcollection.com were you? Perhaps you dreamed it would be a shiny remastered trilogy of Ezio's adventures? Well, let me curb stomp your dream skull against a pavement, teeth first. And then put a hidden blade through your eyes.
The Assassin's Creed Collection (opens in new tab) is actually a monthly magazine model collection. You know the sort. Pay £2.99 for your first model and then gradually hand over more useful internal organs until you have a passable set of collectibles and no self-respect left.
Except in this case, the models aren't passable. They are a plastic death. Just look for yourself.
I love Assassin's Creed. I do. I even own some of the models from Ubi Workshop which are attractive, well crafted and actually look like the hooded humans they're based on. Instead of a melted wax skull. But hey, if you preorder the awful versions of Ezio and co, you'll get a display stand for your nightmares, a binder, a tankard and a belt buckle. What's not to love?
