The Assassin's Creed franchise already has a vast catalogue of merchandise items, with many fans of the series already creating their own collections of associated items. As such, what would you like to see in the future? Have a great product idea that you'd like to see realised? Feel free to add to the thread!

Here are some suggestions of my own, subdivided by some of the AC brands that already exist.



McFarlane Toys
http://i.imgur.com/Nmo2WtT.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/w1SUuF3.png

McFarlane has been producing figures for a number of years now. However, of late they have been producing items that I would argue are not entirely what the fanbase are looking for. In example, I cannot think many fans will have purchased the most recent wave, that featured Assassins in the colours of their national flags. With a proliferation of Ezio and Connor variants already, I feel its time to actually look at characters that have been snubbed thus far, and whom arguably are more warranted of figures than recent releases in the line. This is especially true when we look to the Modern Day and Isu portions of the franchise, which are curiously absent.


http://i.imgur.com/pvf7zk5.png
Desmond Miles
I find it ludicrous that the main protagonist of the franchise to date, still has no action figure - yet we have several forgettable pirates from Black Flag instead. This needs addressing before anything else on this list. He may have been left behind by the franchise, but he remains very much part of its history and his fans deserve such a collectible.


http://i.imgur.com/ykdevjc.png
Lucy Stillman
Another character to have featured in multiple titles in the franchise. Arguably helped play a major part in Desmond's escape from Abstergo and development as an Assassin.


http://i.imgur.com/O5rtRxg.png
The Isu
Equal to Desmond, Juno - our main antagonist of the franchise, has no figure either. The First Civilization needs recognition, and as McFarlane previously released Eagle Vision variants of some Assassins, I feel this would be a good way to handle such a figure as they mainly appeared translucently. It might even be nice to release this as a three pack, with Minerva and Jupiter, giving us the full Capitoline Triad.


http://i.imgur.com/6HZfz5g.png
Shaun and Rebecca
These two have become staples of the franchise too, with arguably more appearances than any others in the list. They remain popular amongst fans, and they full deserve figures at this point - even a double pack.


http://i.imgur.com/sF1jqtB.png
Charlotte and Galina
Relative newcomers, Galina has been around a few years first appearing on the Initiates website before appearing in Syndicate and now the Titan Comic series alongside Charlotte. As two frontline Assassins in the modern day, it would be nice to see these two recognised as a double pack.


http://i.imgur.com/5rgAUfv.png
Otso and Violet
These two have also appeared in a few titles by this point. We are likely to see them in future titles too, and in the interests of Templar fans it would be nice to see this as a double pack.


http://i.imgur.com/kApLnIF.png
Shao, Arbaaz, Nikolei
These three have not only starred in their own games, but also have featured in other media. Another case for a nice triple pack.


http://i.imgur.com/VxHkU4n.png
Daniel Cross
Another character who made the leap from the pages of a comic series, and into the main games. He left a mark upon the Assassins, and for this reason alone he is deserving of plastic recognition.


http://i.imgur.com/dQBiymh.png
Callum Lynch
Whilst Aguilar already has a figure on the way, it would be nice to have his Modern Day successor as part of the collection.


http://i.imgur.com/G5MbTLt.jpg
Maria
Arguably the star of the movie trailer, I'm sure this figure is already coming, but if not lets make it clear - this needs to happen!


http://i.imgur.com/gXK69lv.png
Evie
We have Jacob. But where's Evie?


http://i.imgur.com/BV6elyT.png
Elise
Or Elise for that matter?






Ubicollectibles
http://i.imgur.com/m0HPHQa.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/kE9oXXB.png
Ubicollectibles have done a range of larger figurines over the years, with many of the Assassins appearing as an additional benefit of the varied Collector's Editions of the games.


http://i.imgur.com/dZczDSk.png
Aguilar and Maria
With the above in mind, for many collectors it would be perfect to see Aguilar and Maria in the same range, to have them proudly displayed alongside our beloved game figurines.


http://i.imgur.com/gM37Q83.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/23QgYol.png
Charlotte and Galina
The stars of the Titan Comics could also make a joint figurine. This cover image was quite well received, with cosplayers even recreating it (Credit to @Lorie_O (https://twitter.com/Lorie_O)). I can't help but feel it would make a great image as a collectible.








TriForce
http://i.imgur.com/VI3rWXp.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/B4hJdik.png
Triforce have put together a superb statue for Jacob, that should be releasing later this year. It may already be coming, but it would be perfect to have a matching Evie to go alongside him.


http://i.imgur.com/Kpy7sQw.png
Evie Frye
A pose similar to this perhaps.








Titan Comics
http://i.imgur.com/p1FvSXa.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/OtFIDpj.png
Titan Comics currently have two titles, based on the Assassins and Templars. Whilst another series in the works, I would really like to see another title - this time focused on the Instruments of The First Will.


http://i.imgur.com/P4KZqMJ.png
"Instruments"
As arguably the new growing force in the Modern Day, and quite possibly a strong third faction, I would really like to see an exploration of other members of the secretive group, as well as Violet Da Costa. It could make for a fascinating exploration of the world of these fanatics. As with the other two comic series, there is potential here to show historical elements, especially if Sages have memories of previous times. It is also an opportunity to expand Juno and the Isu's backstory, if she were to regale the faction with tales of times gone by.







Ubiworkshop
http://i.imgur.com/6m4eMU4.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/t0SBWOy.png
Ubiworkshop produce a wide range of excellent products, with an emphasis on clothing. They are likely already working on tie-in items from the movie based on Aguilar and Maria's outfits.

http://i.imgur.com/IaebXiv.png
Instruments of the First Will clothing range
Taking the Instruments theme a little further, it would be fun to see clothes with their logo (the Juno symbol) upon them.


http://i.imgur.com/IHL94eZ.png
Instruments of the First Will stickers
To freak out your work colleagues by posting their stickers everywhere.


http://i.imgur.com/48HQLN0.png
Abstergo - Relaunch
One of my absolute favourite logos in the franchise. It saddens me no end that the vast majority of Abstergo products on the website are sold out. I'd dearly love to see a restock, or even some new items given their prominence in the upcoming movie.


http://i.imgur.com/j3ybeYD.png
Apple of Eden
Images of a prototype floated around awhile back, but it has as yet not surfaced. Popular belief holds that as one is supposedly present in the movie, that we may end up seeing this as a tie-in product with the movie. The Apples have been featured throughout the franchise, and any Isu fan will want this item for sure.


http://i.imgur.com/85cIE0H.png
Sword of Eden
A brilliant fan made version got me thinking to how amazing this would be as an official collectible, especially if it could be made to light up as in the game. (Credit to @superpiggiet (https://twitter.com/superpiggiet/))


http://i.imgur.com/t6cZsLg.png
Staff of Eden
Quite a striking object, and might be fun to have the Apple be insertable into it, as happened in AC2.


http://i.imgur.com/o7lMWW9.jpg
Precursor Necklace
Briefly seen in Syndicate, as Ubiworkshop already does some excellent necklaces this seems a good fit. Another fan made version has shown it can be done. (Credit to @ElanorElwyn (https://twitter.com/ElanorElwyn))


http://i.imgur.com/t8cV0wJ.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/3bh9E0T.jpg
Shroud of Eden
A piece of Eden that was mentioned in the expanded universe for some time before being seen in Syndicate. LED clothing is becoming a 'thing' , so this might be a fun item to have if the glow can be replicated.


http://i.imgur.com/3qfGxD6.png
Animus 1.0, 2.0, 3.0
The Animus has been a huge part of the franchise, and arguably the main component that catapulted the story into popular culture. If we could have models produced at a similar scale to the McFarlane range, it might be nice to perhaps position Desmond or other characters to be laid on the device. We could have the simulation arm from the movie too.


http://i.imgur.com/U40jl35.png
European Warehouse
My biggest desire from Ubiworkshop. One of the largest issues for European fans, and likely those outside of North America, is the shipping and taxation cost. Depending on what items you are buying, it can end up being twice the cost of the item itself. This has resulted in me buying less items than I ordinarily would have. In my view, opening a European centred warehouse would allow European fans to get far fairer shipping costs, and of course net Ubiworkshop a larger proportion of sales from this side of the Atlantic.




But what about you? Support any of the above? Got your own great ideas? Lets hear them! :)

Hi there :)

On my to do list is make a video series on merchandise I want to see, so I'll save my ideas for that if I ever get round to it :)

Yes! Along with Evie, we are looking to release a statue of every main protagonist from the Assassin's Creed franchise.

Sidenote: I'm about 43% done with Syndicate and I choose Evie over Jacob everytime. She's definitely one of my favorites, next to Ezio.

Thanks for that, I was sure I'd read it somewhere but nice to have a confirmation. I'll leave it there as an affirmation of desire then. ;)

I'm a sucker for the decorative stuff. What I'd really like is a quality banner with the Assassin symbol on it, something like you'd see hanging up in the Galata hideout.

Old looking maps of the game would be cool, too.

Now you're talking.

Also, there is something I wanted for quite a while to decorate my home.

It's a poster or a frame with the poster in it. It would be a poster with the Assassin symbol, the 3 tennets and the creed, nothing is true, everything is permitted and we work in the shadow to serve the light. All that wrote on it. ^-^

Thank you Mr Esco and Mr Loco. ;) Both for this and all you do. As an avid AC collector myself (of which I know there are many out there) I just thought it would be fun to try and centralize the fans' suggestions to one point. Hopefully this thread and everyone's suggestions will be of use to the AC product teams.

I just want my Apple of Eden, then I can die happy. I keep throwing money at the screen but still nothing is happening!

I'm all about unique and inventive collectibles like the Apple, Blood vial or Abstergo propaganda. Stuff that you could place on a bookshelf and those in the know would immediately recognize it from the games, yet unobtrusive and classy enough that it could pass for a nice decorative item and doesn't immediately scream "gamer nerd" to posh relatives. :p

TBH I've been kind of disappointed in UbiWorkshop. I was excited when they started because it sounded like they were committed to creating exactly the kind of unique collectibles like the Apple of Eden, for which I would be willing to pay good money. But most of the stuff they come up with is just standard hoodies and T-shirts. The official UbiWorkshop Desmond hoodie was even less accurate than some fan cosplays. The First Civ USB necklace that was posted upthread is amazing and it's sad that UbiWorkshop has nothing similar to offer.

I usually like to collect items that embody concept or iconic themes of the franchise, such as a 3D model of the assassin insignia, steelbooks with conceptual art etched, maps, artbooks, blood vial, piece of eden replica, DaVinci flying machine replica, Altair's sword etc. I am not a fan of figurines or clothing with a particular game's name or posters with protagonists faces affiliated to a single game.
