Although Assassin's Creed Unity isn't set to be released until November 11, it looks like you can already get your hands on a semi-working replica of the main character's covert weapon of choice: the Phantom Blade. You won't be assassinating targets from afar with it, but it does fire soft darts for annoying your friends—which is even better.
After all, you probably make sure to surround yourself with various plumber's tools before you start playing the latest Mario game, right? It only makes sense that you'd do the same for Assassin's Creed. And while it's not lethal, MacFarlane Toys, who designed and produced the $60 replica, have done a fantastic job at making it incredibly detailed, complete with a pop-out crossbow and a sliding blade that's perfect for making short work of a sealed bag of Doritos.
