Surprise your friends with the Assassin's Creed 4 hidden blade toy
McFarlane Toys will produce hidden-blade gauntlets modeled after those seen in Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed series. This faux perforator, shipping this fall through GameStop for $40, is modeled after the signature weapon used by protagonist Edward Kenway in Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag.

"I think from a distance people will go 'Whoa, what is that?' When you press the spring it actually shoots out, like a blade should," artist Todd McFarlane told Kotaku, subtly undermining the self-esteem of blades that don't shoot out like a blade should. "Then you get to the end and realize you can curl the tip on it, so it's not going to do any real damage."
