Spin Master The Last Airbender Movie Toys

This week, while I was perusing the toy aisles of my local Toys R Us, I was surprised to see toys from the movie, The Last Airbender. I’m a big fan of the animated series – I even bought some of the figures that Mattel had made for the cartoon a couple of years ago.


After finding out that Spin Master has the toy license for The Last Airbender movie figures, I was crossing my fingers that the movie would be a success and that the toys would turn out well. The cartoon had a lot of fans, both kids and adults – this would be a good opportunity for Spin Master to get in on some of the collector market if the movies do well as a planned trilogy. Now the first wave of toys have come out, and I managed to pick up Aang and his flying bison, Appa.

Did Spin Master do a good job? Let’s have a look!

First Look – The Last Airbender Movie Figures – YouBentMyWookie

The other day, we highlighted that Toyfare #152, on sale tomorrow, would include a reveal of an action figure line for The Last Airbender, the M. Night Shyamalan’s live action movie based on Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender cartoon.  Scooping Toyfare, YouBentMyWookie has a first look at the line of figures and role playing toys that go on sale this summer.

Long-suffering fans of the cartoon and the figures that came out from Mattel a few years ago will be pleased that they may finally be getting a Katara figure – although she’s not planned for the first wave of 3 3/4-inch figures. The larger figures look to be between 5 and 7-inches but look to be less articulated and include action features.

First Look At M. Night’s ‘The Last Airbender’ Movie Toys

We’ve all now seen the new poster and teaser for M. Night Shyamalan’s “The Last Airbender,” so how about the licensed toys produced by Spin-Master?

Nickelodeon Consumer Products revealed the upcoming line of toys based on “The Last Airbender” today, including various waves of 3 3/4-inch action figures, as well as larger, action-enabled figures, costumes and other props.

Let this be a warning, while it’s not exactly a spoiler, it kinda is if you’re new to the Avatar world so keep on reading with caution.

Among the toys featured in the initial line include Aang (Noah Ringer), Prince Zuko (Dev Patel of “Slumdog Millionaire” fame), as well as Appa, Aangg’s trusted friend and yes… a flying sky bison! Other figures include Sokka (played by “Twilight” actor Jackson Rathbone) and Katara (Nicola Peltz).

Nickelodeon’s Lourdes Arocho had this to say, “We worked very closely with M. Night, the rest of the Paramount team and our in-house design team, along with our partner Spin-Master, to come up with the right assortment, the right size for these action figures and make sure we we had representation of all the nations within the ‘Arbender’ series.”

Wave 1 of “The Last Airbender” toys are expected to hit June 1, with Wave 2 more inline with the movie’s release in July.

New Avatar Figures?

While this may not be as Earth-shattering as new figures from DC Universe Classics, Marvel Universe, and Iron Man, Toyfare #152 is also set to give us our first look at new Avatar figures.

No, we’re not talking about more 10-foot tall blue-skinned Avatars from the James Cameron flick – this refers to The Last Airbender, the live action film by M. Night Shyamalan based on the animated series, Avatar: The Last Airbender.  Some of you may remember the action figure line by Mattel (who coincidentally has the license for James Cameron’s Avatar).  For the movie, however, it’s Spin Master that was awarded the license last summer, and will be producing a line of 3.75-inch figures.

Toyfare #152, on sale this Wednesday, reveals the first wave of figures:

  • Aang with Momo and staff
  • Aang with glider
  • Sokka with boomerang
  • Prince Zuko with broadsword
  • Blue Spirit (no spoilers!) with dual broadswords

Will Avatar fans finally get a Katara figure?  The jury’s still out.
