Back in June we got our first look at the 5" line of product coming from McFarlane Toys for Avatar: The Last Airbender. Now we have a look at the 2 new 7" figures as well as the one 12" figure they are doing for the property, all of which are now available for pre-order at our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com.

For 7" they are doing Aang with Air Scooter and Prince Zuko. For 12" they are also doing Aang. Look for all of these to be released in October.

I'll go on record also that the Diamond figures were not all that. They were simply the only option at the time. I knew eventually someone else would pick up the license. Not a huge fan of McFarlane's DCU line, I guess with it's selection rather than the structure, and the damn fact that he refuses to make them at a scale compatible with Marvel Legends, but that's an argument for another place, but his other lines like My Hero and and Mortal Kombat are pretty nice. I think they'll do the best job on this license, to date.

I agree. Mcfarlanes best work is with licenses such as this. Their dc work is subpar in my opinion.

I think their best work and most suited to them is really Spawn. I find most of their licensed stuff subpar.

I think the best guys to work on an anime-like property are the japanese companies like Figma and SH figurearts. For mass market though, I think NECA could do it based on how accurate their toon turtles are to the show.

Yea. You may be right.  I don’t really have any figurearts stuff and only a couple of, or maybe just one figma fig since link is the only one I can think of, so I can’t really speak to how good or poor their stuff is but I can definitely agree on the Mcfarlane subpar work as of late. And I know a lot of people throw hate toward neca but honestly I have many of their figs and I like them and haven’t really had any problems with them (except my Simon Belmont arm comes of easily but that was a poorly designed elbow joint from many years ago. Their horror stuff is great and my lord of darkness from the legend movie is one of my all time favorites.
