Cesare Borgia : Assassin’s Creed by Jazwares

Cesare Borgia is a real historical figure and was a Cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church. He shows up in Assassin’s Creed games frequently as a villain to Ezio.

This figure was part of a two pack set in the line being produced by Jazwares but was eventually cancelled. This is the second time Cesare Borgia has been made into a 1:18 scaled action figure. I was able to obtain a rare pre-production piece to add to my collection.
