HA HA HA, I am such a geek!



Look what I managed to get my greedy hands on!

Avatar,toys
Avatar,toys

These toys were produced, but the line was discontinued before they were put on the North American market. Booooh! So now, gotta hunt them down everywhere else in the world that managed to get a shipment.

And, since they were discontinued, quality control on the packaging was sometimes...lacking.

Avatar,toys

Somewhere out there, there's an Ozai toy (seen once on a toy site from Brazil...anyone from brazil here that could get it for me?)

I doubt these will ever be collectors' items, so I will feel no guilt at taking them out of the box.

Oh sweet! And oooh, Zuko pink is your color. lolol!

But seriously the dark armor is pretty cool. Maybe that's where M. Night got the idea? ;D

Pink is Ty Lee color - no one will take Zuko seriously with pink!

I've never seen anything Avatar related in Spain!! But now that you say that there are some of those jewels running unnoticed I'll open my eyes!!

Soldado de Fuego Imperial SOUNDS SO COOL IN SPANISH XDDDDD

I want an Azula doll ;_____;

So far, the fire line of toys have been spotted around China (Hong Kong), Japan and Brazil. Still waiting to see if they pop up anywhere else.
They may be in a dark warehouse somewhere in North America, waiting for some retailer to by them out of oblivion.

lol, why do they have experimental packaging on sale in other countries? my dad works for mattel so i see it all the time, its usually just spare cardboard they have lying around, thats historical that they actually shipped stuff like that.

The only reason I could think of was that since the line was discontinued (at least in North America), what is out there may be whatever was left, including experimental packaging.
In any case, the pink stuff makes me want to keep the Zuko box. Priceless!

it's worse actually
it's not just pink, it's pink butterflies...
that's more like Avatar meets My little Pony

My Little Benders?!

loll yes fire strawberry XD XD Now you can make naughty scenes with Zuko and Zhao in the comfort of your own home!

I like the fire carnation the imperial soldier is hiding behind...
rufftoon

Naughty scenes, involving fire strawberries.
(blocking mental image, blocking mental image!!!!)

Imperial Soldier with flower shield is precious.
At least his fire staff is bigger than his fire whip.
(more bad mental image)

WHA>???

There was a binder of unused toy designs in on of the creative departments around the office. It was fun to look through and see what crazy ideas people dreamed up.
rufftoon
Jun. 1st, 2009 09:26 pm (UTC)
Aw man, that would have been awesome to see!! I can just imagine the stuff they worked on, having seen binders of that type for other projects.

*still miffed over the lack of a Katara figure* I could have played out Zutara reenacted important scenes from Avatar with her as I already have Zuko, Aang and Sokka.

Gotta remake Avatar without the girls.
Or have some of the boys play the girls' role.
Gotta compensate somehow.

oh god LOL not only is it pink, it's clearly part of some other package altogether xD.
rufftoon

As someone above mentionned, sometimes they do experimental packaging using unused pieces of cardboards. This one happened to be pink with butterflies.
Since this is a serie that got discontinued, looks like even the experimental packaged ones are out there.
Lovin' it!

First, his honor and 25% of his good looks were taken from him. Now his likeness has been desecrated with strawberries.
