November 16, 2013

Only 1,000 Statues Produced Worldwide:  Available on12/13 at McFarlane Toys Online Store

Tempe, Ariz.— Nov., 15, 2013 – From one of the most anticipated video games of the year, Ubisoft®’s Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, McFarlane Toys  is bringing to life the charismatic yet brutal pirate captain, Edward Kenway, as an exclusive limited-edition resin statue.

McFarlane Toys’ highly detailed, hand-painted, cold-cast resin statue depicts the main character of the video game franchise– the brash, rebel pirate captain Edward Kenway. His skill with a sword and disdain for authority earn him the respect of pirate legends, like Blackbeard, but thrust him into an ancient conflict that threatens to destroy everything the pirates have built.

The meticulously sculpted and hand-painted statue captures Edward Kenway as he appears in key game art.  The in-game accurate statue features Edward striding confidently ashore, with sword and pistol in hand, waves lapping at his boots, and a dead rival pirate at his feet. McFarlane’s Edward Kenway statue perfectly captures the mix of sea and land, of pirate and Assassin, in the authentic detail that defines Assassin’s Creed IV.

With acute attention to detail, this statue was designed by Todd McFarlane and his award-winning McFarlane Toys Design Group, in conjunction with the Assassin’s Creed® franchise video game creators at Ubisoft.

The Edward Kenway statue stands approximately 14-inches tall on its base, spans more than 14-inches from the tip of his coat tail to the end of his weapon and stands on an 11.5 inch wide circular base.  The statue depicts Edward in his pirate Assassin outfit, complete with long jacket, hood, hidden blade gauntlet, skull-shaped buckle, sword and dual pistols. The limited-edition statue features an exceptionally detailed base that replicates the appearance of the seawater that rotates 360-degrees. Additionally, the base features a custom plaque that is individually and sequentially numbered and embossed with the official Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag logo.  The statue is highly limited to ONLY 1,000 total pieces worldwide. As an added bonus, each statue includes a Certificate of Authenticity hand-signed by the internationally acclaimed artist and McFarlane Toys creator Todd McFarlane.

McFarlane Toys will also offer 50 of the 1,000 statues in the extremely-limited “Unpainted Artist Proof” variant–primed in flat grey and ready for customization or to be displayed as is by collectors in its rawest form.  Each statue will be feature a custom plaque that is individually and sequentially to reflect the limited production run of 50.

The limited edition Edward Kenway Statue and “Unpainted Artist Proof” collectible statues will retail for $295 each  (free shipping and handling; only available  in the U.S. and Canada) and will be available to purchase on the McFarlane Toys online store (http://www.McfarlaneToysStore.com) Friday, December 13, 2013.  A limited quantity of Edward Kenway statues will be available through Diamond Comic Distributors, Inc.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
