100% of the profits go directly to SpecialEffect.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is to be one of the free games coming to the Epic Games Store from February 20 to February 27. But what if I told you, you could grab yourself a life-sized version of Assassin’s Creed character Connor Kenway while also donating to charity?
SpecialEffect is currently holding an auction for a life-size statue of Connor Kenway from Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed III. Whatever the closing price winds up as 100% of the profits will be going to the charity themselves.
The statue itself has been donated to the charity by Insert Coin. It’s detailed that the statue has been sat in the warehouse away from direct sunlight since 2013. It stands at 7 feet tall, 4 foot 6 inches wide and 90kg in weight. At the time of writing, the statue has raised £360 with 32 bidders and 4 days left.

The statue can come apart, but it’s apparently difficult to construct and deconstruct. As a result, the statue is on a collection only basis for the winner of the auction. That doesn’t stop anyone overseas from traveling to Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, UK and flying it back I suppose?
For those unaware, SpecialEffect is a UK-based charity that helps create devices and systems to allow disabled players to enjoy video games. In December we saw the charity invite popular streamer, Ninja to use the charities BubbleBusters robot to communicate with Zack. Additionally, SpecialEffect had a hand in helping create the Xbox Adaptive Controller.
