Assassin's Creed Collection confirmed... as monthly magazine of hideous models

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 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?
