The Chest & Apple of Eden was one of the limited edition collectibles, with a edition size of 2700. I was pretty sure it will sell out fast but I didn't expect it to sell out even before the movie's release.
Produced by PureArts for the UbiCollectibles brand, this was exclusive to Ubishop but thankfully a friend could help me out with this.
When I pre-ordered this, I wasn't sure what to expect in terms of size and quality. So, when I received it, I was very satisfied. It looks just as big as the one that appears in the movie and has a good weight to it.
However, since it's made of plastic, it doesn't feel like what you would expect of a chest from that era but it's very detailed and is given the weathered look, with some broken & cracked parts all around.
Inside the Chest lies the Apple of Eden.. and more details on the inside of the Chest.
A nice spot for the Apple of Eden to rest..
You can open it up to insert the batteries as there's no batteries included..
and it lights up beautifully..
It glows really well as you dim the lights, a real beauty!
I'm very glad with how the Apple of Eden has turned out. This is one of the most talked about Artifacts in the Assassin's Creed lore and we had to wait several years for it since it's tease. Very pleased with it.. and again this looks like the one from the movie..
There's no key for the keyhole but the Chest closes shut tightly due to a strong magnet. I wouldn't want the Apple of Eden inside dropping out if the lid accidentally swings open.
The Apple too has a good weight to it, and while I'm not sure if it will crack if dropped, I wouldn't want it to happen especially with the lights inside.
Though the Chest is shown only briefly in the movie, the whole thing looks fantastic! While 2700 doesn't seem to be that limited, there's more than enough fans to make this a real treasure to own!
As far as I know, this Collectible is sold out but I would definitely recommend it if you can find it at a reasonable price. Or else, as a fan, the Apple of Eden replica alone is a must-have.
