Props master NECA will be releasing a spot on replica of Ezio Auditore’s sweet-looking stealth weapon of choice from Assassin’s Creed II.
The essence of true stealth itself, the hidden blade gauntlet worn by Renaissance assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze – I like to call him Ezzy for short – from Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed II. Silent and deadly in an instant, like the deadly bite from a black mamba snake, I can certainly see why such a weapon would be perfect for Ezzy’s line of work.
Now, soon enough, you too at home can feel the power of what the Assassin’s Creed protagonist holds at his wrists with this well-detailed replica of the hidden gauntlet featured in the game. Minus the sharp blade, of course, which is constructed out of sturdy plastic. Hey, can’t have you actually impaling yourself or your kid brother, now can we? …The answer is no.
Crafted by prop maker NECA, this quality replica is specifically based on the one Ezzy uses in Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, and has a lovely leather buckle and Velcro straps to securely attach it around one’s forearm. It also has an effective spring loaded mechanism that pops the blade out just like it’s in-game counterpart, which is both nifty and alarming.
Right now GameSpot is taking pre-orders for the replica, $39.99 USD, which is set to be released this October 30. While we’re on the subject of items that can be worn on your wrist, did you see this cute Star Wars R2-D2 watch & controller that was posted on Walyou? Do yourself a huge favor and point your browser to it, post-haste, or anything for that matter. Hint: this Gundam-themed hotel room is a must see, too.
