(TORONTO, ON)– Todd McFarlane, McFarlane Toys founder and Spawn Creator, comes to Fan Expo Canada™, hitting the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from August 22-25, to launch his company’s newest Ubisoft figures and toys. As previously announced, McFarlane Toys will create a wide range of products, including figures, statues, playsets and novelty toys based on the successful Assassin’s Creed® franchise and Raving Rabbids® video games and television series, which debuts on Nickelodeon in 2013. A selection of these Assassin’s Creed® and Raving Rabbids® figure prototypes will be showcased at the Ubisoft booth.
To celebrate the partnership, Ubisoft and McFarlane Toys will make three of the seven Assassin’s Creed series 1 figures, Connor, Haytham and Edward Kenway, available for purchase exclusively to Fan Expo Canada™ attendees prior to their official release later this year.
