Assassin’s Creed III took Ubisoft’s series out of the Old World and into the new one. The action now centered around the colonies in America. With it, we got a great new gameplay mechanic: ship battles! To celebrate the game’s 10th anniversary, PureArts has revealed a new premium statue of AC 3’s protagonist Connor Kenway.
Ratonhnhaké:ton stands in the snowy landscape with his tomahawk at the ready, his spirit animal leaping over his shoulder. The background features translucent Animus effects pieces that glow with the help of built-in LEDs. The statue stands 27″ tall and costs $899. The Exclusive Edition, which includes a bear claw replica necklace, is limited to only 250 pieces. The Non-Exclusive Edition will have 2,250.
Although it is not explicitly stated, I’m pretty sure that the bear claw necklace is not made from an animal. The claws are probably polyresin or ABS. (6) AA batteries power the LEDs in the statue, and there is no option for a USB plug. Batteries are probably not included. The expected delivery window is during the fourth quarter of 2023.
Young Ratonhnhaké:ton learned to master patience and restraint before earning his two Hidden Blades and the title of Assassin Connor Kenway. His campaign now brings him to the esteemed legion of PureArts Animus statues! Our Assassin’s Creed®: Animus Connor Statue features LED lit animus feature on a snowy rock bluff. In his hand he holds his iconic tomahawk and behind him stands a mystical wolf: his fierce spirit animal. Seventh in the Animus collection, Connor is our most idealistic and endearing Assassin to date!
The statue is officially licensed by Ubisoft and is made from polystone. No soft goods are included with this statue, which is a little odd considering the high price tag. All cloth items on the statue are sculpted.
Is Connor worth the asking price? Let us know your thoughts below.[Souce: PureArts]
