I'll give this 4.5 stars to be more accurate; Assassin's Creed fans should love this figurine. This PVC figurine has quite a bit of weight to it and the level of fine detail on Ezio's Revelations costume is simply amazing. This is a solid piece figurine and not a toy. There are no adjustable limbs, and while everything from the game is present, including daggers, sword and Ezio's hook blade, they are a part of Ezio and cannot be removed. Even the base is a fixed piece.
If there is one thing that lets this figurine down somewhat, then it's the face sculpt. The years certainly haven't been kind to Ezio that's for sure. The sculpt certainly isn't terrible, but while the lower face is ok, there's something just not quite right about the eyes. They seem to have a glazed over fisher-price sort of look to them and not in keeping with the quality of the rest of the figure. Luckily though, unless you really study the face, they are mostly obscured by Ezio's hood, so it doesn't remotely spoil the look of the figure when it's on display.
I have read other reviews criticizing the fact that the figure is not accurate because Ezio does not wear a cape in the game.Assassin's Creed Revelations (PS3)
This is true. But Ezio does wear a cape in the game's opening FMV sequence which he loses in battle before you even take control. It would seem that this is what the figure is modeled after. You could then argue that Ezio should not have the hook blade, as he doesn't receive this until later in the game. But to be honest that would just be nit picking. At the end of the day the cape adds a lot of movement and drama to Ezio's pose and I am not going to knock any marks off for that.
Overall then, this Revelations figurine is very good. It makes for a wonderful display piece, and while obviously not up there with 'Hot Toys' and 'Sideshow' collectibles, I wouldn't have expected it to be for the price. While the face sculpt is a little off, it still makes a fine companion piece to a fine trilogy of games starring Ezio Auditore Da Firenze, and a fitting swan song. Get one while you can.
