Inside Pulse » McFarlane McFarlane Assassin’s Creed Series 4 To Include Rogue & Unity Characters Mon, 10 Nov 2014 14:40:49 +0000 Just when you thought we couldn’t pack anymore action and adventure into the toy aisle, McFarlane Toys is excited to announce the next awesome Assassin’s Creed® series highlighted by a figure designed by Todd McFarlane, himself.

McFarlane Toys continues its partnership with Ubisoft to create action figures from the blockbuster Assassin’s Creed! The Assassin’s Creed series tells the story of a heroic order of Assassins, fighting a conspiracy that spans thousands of years. This innovative entertainment franchise takes fans on an adventure through world history — from the Crusades, to the Italian Renaissance, to the American Revolution, to the Golden Age of Piracy, and beyond.

Assassin’s Creed Series 4 brings collectors more great new figures from the blockbuster Assassin’s Creed video game franchise. Series 4 includes all-new characters, outfits, and weapons from the next chapter in the Assassin’s Creed saga, Assassin’s Creed Unity and Assassin’s Creed Rogue.



What happens to an Assassin when his faith is completely stripped away? After a botched mission destroys an entire city, former Assassin Shay Cormac turns Templar in order to enact his revenge in Assassin’s Creed Rogue! Coming out this November, Assassin’s Creed Rogue will be the first game to have a Templar as a lead character! During the Seven Years’ War Shay Cormac was known to be a skilled sea-faring captain, an excellent swordsman and an efficient killer with dual wielded weapons. Our Shay action figure comes equipped with a pistol, air rifle, and sword!


As the lead assassin in Assassin’s Creed Unity, Arno Dorian always needs to be prepared for every combat situation in Paris, France! Equipped with an outfit designed by award-winning artist Todd McFarlane, this new version of Arno is ready for anything the French Revolution can throw at him! Arno also comes with an ornate one-handed sword, only wielded by the most dedicated Assassins! Our figure of Arno also includes a pistol.

EAGLE VISION ARNO DORIAN (Walgreen’s Exclusive)
When danger hides behind every corner in the Parisian streets, Assassin Arno Dorian has a unique advantage over each opponent he fights. Blessed with a rare sixth sense, Arno is able to pinpoint even the most cunning enemies with his “Eagle Vision” ability! When activated, Eagle Vision instinctively shows his enemies and allies in a variety of different colored glows, as well as a blue glow for Arno himself. This is the first time ever that McFarlane Toys has created an Eagle Vision Assassin! Arno is equipped with a pistol and French sword! This figure will be available exclusively at Walgreen’s!

Collectors can rejoice as Assassin’s Creed Series 4 figures are surely equipped to lead your action figures to victory this Spring 2015! Stay tuned to our social channels for sneak peeks and first looks of these new figures!

AMC’s The Walking Dead Series 7 Action Figures By McFarlane Revealed Mon, 15 Sep 2014 19:42:46 +0000 New images of The Walking Dead Series 7 hit the internet last week. These are due to hit stores & online shops in March.


In season 4, Michonne has lowered her guard a bit and formed an unlikely friendship with Rick’s son Carl. Michonne reveals her traumatic past to Carl and the events that lead to her surviving the apocalypse alone. Traveling along the train tracks on the road to Terminus, Michonne enjoys a can of cheese, proving that sometimes even the most deadly warrior needs to enjoy the little things in life. This figure comes with approximately 22 points of articulation, katana sword with sheath, Terminus memorial candle and a can of cheese.


Carl Grimes, who started out as a shy little boy is season 1, has now become battle hardened by the dramatic events of the most recent seasons. In season 4, Carl’s abilities to protect himself and other survivors have greatly improved. His youth still shows at times, losing one of his shoes during a preventable walker encounter and indulging in a scrumptious can of pudding. This figure comes with approximately 22 points of articulation, removable sheriff’s hat, knife, flashlight, Terminus memorial candle and a can of pudding.


Introduced during the season 4 finale, Gareth is the smooth talking leader of the Terminus encampment. Based on the events of that final episode, in which he captures Rick and his group of survivors, Gareth clearly has an alternate agenda to help his people outlive this zombie apocalypse by any means necessary. This figure comes with approximately 22 points of articulation, pistol and Terminus memorial candles. Also included is a rotting human carcass, stripped of its meat and hinting at Gareth’s true intentions for Rick’s Group.


The only thing worse than having a walker coming at you is having one sneak up on you…the Mud Walker embodies this most terrifying scenario. During season 4 episode “Too Far Gone,” an unsupervised girl accidently unearths a walker buried in the dirt beside her. The Mud Walker figure exemplifies this gruesome character, complete with decomposing body and a worm coming out of his nose. You can also split this undead figure in half and mount his upper body on his mud-covered base with flash flood sign to recreate this iconic scene.

]]> 0 SDCC 2014: Todd McFarlane Unveils New Toy Brick System Wed, 30 Jul 2014 12:55:31 +0000 Todd McFarlane unveiled his take on a new, interlocking brick toy system. His first step into this format is with a stunningly amazing take on AMC’s The Walking Dead. On display at his both at San Diego Comic Con, we saw Daryl on his chopper, the governor’s mansion and a portion of the cell block. These sets are incredible. At first, it’s hard to believe that they are the same type of toy as Legos or even Mega Bloks, but they are. The pieces can be re-arranged and displayed however the consumer wants. McFarlane himself says that the wrong question to ask is, “Why do your blocks look amazing?” Rather, we should be asking, “Why haven’t the other guys been making them look this good?” We will see the line available commercially starting at Toys R Us in the middle of October. They are trying to make it coincide with the new season of The Walking Dead. In January, we should see the toys at other retail locations and available internationally.

The most exciting news is that Todd himself has said that if this works, then he would like to expand on this universe and maybe do other toy lines. Todd was excited about doing a special robot line that would allow you to build your own mech however you’d like. Because of the interlocking brick system, you would have the freedom to do so and, thanks to the incredible art style of Todd McFarlane, you know that it would look awesome.DSC06551

“Twenty years ago I walked into the action figure aisle, saw an artistic void, and asked, can these toys look cooler? The answer was yes, they could, and I’ve survived twenty years next to the big boys creating those artistic toys,” said McFarlane. “Now I’m walking into another aisle with that same question, and the answer is still yes!”

“Will these be the best building sets out there? I’ll leave it up to the consumer to decide,” said McFarlane. “But, will it look cooler? Yes. Will it be more detailed? Absolutely. Will it be more realistic? I guarantee it!”
