Yip-yip! Saddle up and launch into the skies with Aang and his friends with this exciting new LEGO Ideas project!
WHAT IS THIS?
Based on the hit animated Nickelodeon series Avatar: The Last Airbender. The show follows Avatar Aang on his quest to stop the sinister Firelord Ozai from conquering the Four Nations. With the help of Katara, Sokka, Toph, and other friends they meet on their journey, they also outrun the banished prince of the Fire Nation, Zuko. The series is hailed by critics as one of the best animated series of all time. This set focuses on the first two seasons of the show.
This model has all of the main characters from the series; Avatar Aang, waterbender Katara, Sokka, earthbender Toph Beifong, and firebender Prince Zuko. These characters are some of the most iconic cartoon characters today and contain a vibrant array of fun minifigure designs.
This proposal includes:
- a fully buildable model of Appa, Aang’s loveable flying bison, complete with articulable legs and head.
- a stand you can display Appa on mid-flight as well as spots for the characters. Each minifigure has a tile corresponding to their respective nation. Except for Sokka. :)
- 5 minifigures with accessories.
This model contains 824 pieces.
WHY SHOULD THIS BE MADE?
The resurgence of Avatar-related media is approaching within the next few years with an upcoming Netflix live-action adaptation due for release in 2023. Nickelodeon has founded Avatar Studios who have announced a slate of animated theatrical releases, the first being due in 2024 starring the characters featured in this set. If this project hits the 10,000 required votes in a timely fashion, the release of this set could coincide with the release of some of this new media, a perfect opportunity to capitalize on incoming fan hype.
Several previous LEGO Avatar: The Last Airbender projects have hit 10,000 votes on the IDEAS platform but were not approved for production. The continuous submissions and successful voting periods for A:TLA projects proves the high demand for the return of LEGO Aang to shelves!
That’s all! I hope you enjoyed looking at my project! Please consider supporting this project so it may have a chance at becoming a real product on store shelves! Thanks for stopping by!
