If you're into building sets (for kids or grownups) and haven't been paying attention to what my friends at MEGA BLOKS are doing, you need to give them a look. While we've been immersed in their sets for kids here at Rock Father HQ for awhile, I recently got into their "grownup" line of CALL OF DUTY building sets. Now, they're following-up the success of COD and HALO with a partnership with Ubisoft to produce ASSASSIN'S CREED Collector Construction Sets, this news straight out of the New York Toy Fair.

"We are thrilled to partner with Ubisoft and look forward to launching the Assassin's Creed Collector Construction Sets later this year. The millions of fans of the game will love the attention to detail and authenticity of the micro action figures and builds in this collection."Vic Bertrand, Chief Innovation Officer of MEGA Brands

While no photos or deep details are available just yet, it's expected that these will take advantage of the historical backgrounds and periods that players of the ASSASSIN'S CREED games (more than 59 million copies sold) have come to know.

Stay tuned...
