EB Games Is Slinging A $1600 Assassin’s Creed Shadows Helmet Replica

An assassination on my wallet.

How’s your Assassin’s Creed Shadows hype? Is it spending-nearly-two-grand-on-replica-gear-from-EB-Games levels of hype? Because if so, I’ve got good news. Your local merchants of video games, vinyl figures and big plastic “SALE” banners have just announced two exclusive collectible replicas headed to stores in time for the early access launch of the game on November 12th.

The first of these is a 1/1 scale replica of a helmet worn by one of the game’s two protagonists, the samurai, Yasuke. It’s made from polyresin and sports a removable face plate, fabric cords and stands 63cm tall. It’s also a cool $1599 AUD. Wowza.

The other of the two is, naturally, based on the game’s other lead, the shinobi, Naoe. Her replica is a much more affordable $199 AUD piece based on her wrist-mounted hidden blade. It’s still a 1/1 scale piece, and wearable in two modes with some pretty nice detailing.

You can pre-order both of these below, if you’re that bold:

Of course, EB Games also has an exclusive $360 Collector’s Edition of the game available, which includes a statue of both characters and will no doubt be of interest to anyone dedicated enough to take the plunge on the above. You can find that right here.

We recently published an in-depth preview of the game after being treated to a behind-closed-doors demo, with Brodie saying, “Assassin’s Creed Shadows feels like a statement that these big, enormously scoped role-playing games aren’t going anywhere soon. It is evident that, through its dual protagonists, a large focus for the team has been player agency and freedom to play your way, but whether it’s going to respect your time in a way I feel Valhalla didn’t is still a question I’ve got.”

Assassin’s Creed Shadows launches on November 15th for PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC and will be available three days early to those picking up certain editions.
