New Avatar Sets Revealed!

Last month, we got our first look at the Avatar theme at LEGO Con. Another con, San Diego Comic-Con, has given us a more fleshed-out look at the new theme. Images of four new sets have been released, which completes the lineup. All of these sets will be available on October 1st. 

Neytiri and Thanator vs. AMP Suit Quaritch
560 Pieces - $39.99

Jake and Neytiri's First Banshee Flight
572 Pieces - $59.99

Floating Mountains: Site 26 and RDA Samson
887 Pieces - $89.99

Jake Sully & his Avatar
246 Pieces - $19.99

I was really surprised when rumors began to circulate that Avatar was getting a theme to coincide with the new film. The designs of these sets are spectacular and they are unique amidst LEGO's other releases this year. I love the little floaty bits that are covered in alien flora that feel refreshingly different. I still think that the best part of this theme is the Minifigures and the return of the tall legs and long arms. On top of that, I think it is safe to assume we will get sets based on The Way of Water in the near future.
