The time of the year is rapidly approaching when the gaming industry lets loose with a slew of new games just in time for the festive period but 2020 is no normal year. 2020 sees the introduction of the next generation of consoles, which if you’re an avid gamer & a collector as we are, this means there’s plenty of new additions inbound to our collections this November.
Among them, is the latest addition to Ubisofts ‘Assassins Creed’ franchise with the Viking-themed ‘Valhalla‘ and so we’re taking a closer look at the collectibles available, namely from the team over at PureArts and their Limited Edition bundle.
Firstly, the bundle features a 1:8 scale of new character Eivor, a wearable Hidden Blade prop and 6 Valhalla-themed playing dice. The bundle is limited to 2500 units, is available to collectors in the US & Canada and retails for $199.00 with a shipping window on late November 2020.
Eivor | 1:8 PVC Statue
The stand-out feature for us is the 1:8 statue of the new character ‘Eivor’ which stands in at around 10″ tall and depicts the Viking, helmet & axe in-hand, proudly posed alongside the spoils of Norse Conquest.
- Iconic posing of Eivor proudly standing right after the victorious raid
- Faithful outfit & weapon, as well as the iconic Assassin’s Hidden Blade
- Highly detailed chest filled with coins. A great loot!
- Height: 25 cm / 10 in
- Material: PVC
1:1 Hidden Blade | Wearable Prop
Also within this particular bundle from PureArts is a fully wearable ‘Hidden Blade’ favoured by the Assassins with this design strongly rooted in the entries Viking roots. The blade itself is also extendable and you’ll see from the images below and we very much expect to see this bedecking Cosplayers when conventions & events are once again able to open their doors.
- Official life-size replica of the Hidden Blade worn by Eivor
- Highly detailed and size-adjustable replica
- Spring-loaded retractable blade with locking mechanism
- Length: 37 cm / 14,5 in
- Material: PVC & ABS
Lastly in this bundle, but by no means least, is a set of 6 playing dice allowing us to try our hand at the ‘Holmgang’ dice game from ‘Valhalla’ within a wood variant which is only available through this bundle
Last year, we nominated the PureArts Altair Animus Statue in our 2nd Annual ‘Exclu Toy Awards‘ and in the near 12-months since, the team have gone on to create some really strong releases not only alongside Assassins Creed but other licenses such as Terminator & Cyberpunk 2077.
They’re also very active over on YouTube where you can check out previews of their upcoming releases such as their 1:4 Eivor Statue which we’ll link to below and we’ll bring you closer look at future releases from the platform right here on Exclumagazine.com
