Splinter Cell: Conviction
Some of you got a sneak peak of this post (picture wise) a few weeks ago when Blogger decided to post it regardless of the date / time set for it to go live.
Splinter Cell is a popular franchise of video games based on a story (or stories) created by Tom Clancy. The series follows Sam Fischer, a highly trained agent of Third Echelon, and focuses heavily on a stealth game play style.
Conviction is the 6th installment in what will soon be an eight game series (to date) - Despite it being noted as the 5th due to fans not considering the 2006 Essentials title as part of the main story. The game is broken down into two sections. The first is single player, which puts the player in control of Sam Fischer. The second part is the prologue, which is played online. This mode puts two players in control of Archer and Kestrel. Overall the game received good reviews.
In 2011, NECA gave Sam Fischer a little nod with its Splinter Cell: Conviction based figures. The series is actually a part of NECA's Player Select line which includes several one off releases of various video game based characters. The series included a "regular" Sam Fischer, and a second Sam Fischer with a bulletproof vest.

Much like prior video game based figures, the series eventually made its way to clearance racks only to find a strong foothold on secondary markets years later. A sealed Sam Fischer (of either variety) will set you back anywhere from $30.00 to $50.00. As we usually say in cases such as this - Not bad for a figure that nobody wanted when it was readily available.
We'll be covering more of NECA's Player Select lines in the near future, so stay tuned for those if you're a fan of the series.
