Well...since you asked so nicely...

I only have a camera phone though. For that I apologize.

The package together

The Altair figurine, sans right foot (oops)

The insert and tin seperate

And the comic book

EDIT: By the way, this is the XB360 version. Not sure of the differences between the two, if any.

Beautiful, thanks a million. By the way, how did the Altair figure come? Was it inside the tin? And how long is the comic?

Oh, Altair WAS in one piece when I got him. He is tightly packed in plastic, like how you would see an MP3 player done.

The comic is only 8 pages long, but its very well done. It definitely put me in the mood to play, plus it's just a cool little nicknack to have.

EDIT: I see what you mean now about the figurine. He was in the tin, so you wont have to bother any employees to get one.

Just from browsing through it, it seems to read like the typical guide. It's printed in color with color pictures, and walks you through the first assassination. It tells you where to go, who to talk to, and how to complete the information gathering side missions. It also gives you hints and notes about the game that you might not know. For instance, your horse will follow you around the kingdom, so if you finish a mission outside of where you started, you can wait for the horse to catch up.

For anyone wondering why I'm not playing it right now, I'm waiting for my parents to go to bed so I can pick one of the two HDTVs to play on. I dont want to even start playing the game on SD when one of the major selling points of the game is the visuals. It kinda sucks being 21 and living at home.

So the game comes in a regular edition game box? Is there a upc on the back?

xekushnr
11-13-2007, 06:55 PM
Yeah, it looks like the box I have seen for the regular editions. I havent seen the back of those, though. It does have a UPC. The only difference that I can tell is that the miniguide is included in the sleeve where the instructions are, and as far as I know there is no miniguide in the regular version. The UPCs on the plastic overlay and the game are one number off, so I assume taking the game case from an LE and ringing it up that it would ring up as a non-LE game.

Thanks! Other questions:
- Can you move the joint on the Altair figure at all?
- Does the PA comic have any spoilers?

Yup, the DVD is behind the game in the case. I forgot about that...maybe the UPCs are different then.

NO! Do not try to move the figure. Thats why my Altair is missing a foot. He didnt seem to want to stand on my computer desk so I thought I would help him out. I guess he didnt want my help. Now he is laying on my desk.

The comic contains no spoilers. It doesnt actually have much text to it, its mostly art (which is good, the art is what I really loved as a kid).

Ahh, now I understand all the game disk questions I got. Luckily they were smart enough to give it it's own case in the tin. The tin has A LOT of extra room too, so I'm sure the bare disk would have been destroyed if they had went that route.

As for any early copy, I got mine on time with everyone else in my area http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif They only had the LE left at the GS I used to work at, but I'm sure the other less busy stores had a few copies to spare. I dunno where you are from, but I'm in Michigan, USA, so the 13th was our launch date. I've heard most of the country wont get it till today (14th), so I guess I'm just lucky to live where I live, which is probably closer to a distributor.

Sorry I didnt notice this earlier! Yes, on the back of the plastic cover it lists everything inside. And yes, the Penny Arcade comic is listed among the others. However, this could be a NA only thing...I'm not sure if the EU has a different package.

I joined just to comment on this thread. Greets to all the longtime users here.

I just picked up my reserved LE at Gamestop and wanted to mention how severely disappointed I was. I mainly wanted the Altair figure, but was shocked (as I suspect many of you will be) to discover that the figure is TINY. The figure's paint and details are cheap and resemble something out of a cereal box or even a novel ornament for a Christmas tree. It's a far cry from the promotional shots of the LE tin. The comic is essentially a very thin pamphlet (that has actually been laying in a stack instore for free for some weeks now). The startegy guide is of the same stock and quality as the user manual, but when we already have Youtube walkthroughs, speedruns, and FAQ sites, strategy guides are redundant at best. And there is a bonus media disc, but from a cursory glance, it seems to be much of the same sort of development footage we've been seeing for months. Even the tin box itself was heartbreaking. The graphics of the box and plastic sleeve are dfinitely nice, but the slightest pressure dents the case.

Just wanted to give a heads-up to anyone else who may have preordered the LE tin and may want to reconsider spending the extra $10 USD.

It's good for what it is. The paint for Altair's facial hair is a bit messy on mine. Honestly, I think Ubisoft should have included the NECA 7" action figure. Then again that's a ~$15 value...

ACK!!! I just noticed that the tip of sword/sheath on his back is missing. Quick somebody post a pic of their figures back!

Okay it definitely snapped off because I found a previous picture I took of it and it was still there. What happended?!?! Do you think GS will let me exchange it for a new one?

The box is really enormous. Biggest box I'v ever seen for a videogame. And the DVD extras are quite good too. The short films, there's like 10 or so, are interesting as well.

Here are three somewhat-high-resolution pictures of the figure included in the North American Limited Edition of Assassin's Creed. I was actually surprised at how detailed it was for being so small, after reading some of posts. The only thing that stands out is the hidden blade, which is a little too thick in proportion to the rest of the figure. I assume they did this to avoid it from snapping it off. It is a little back-heavy, however; you may wish to prop it against something.

The front (http://apartialabsence.net/altair/CRW_5835.jpg), the back (http://apartialabsence.net/altair/CRW_5837.jpg), and a closeup of the face (http://apartialabsence.net/altair/CRW_5838.jpg).
