Possible SPOILER!
Now EDITED with MORE!


Curious about Appa's look? The toy version must be pretty faithful:
Last Airbender
Last Airbender
Creepy eyes, too human. less animalistic than in the show (in my opinion).
Last Airbender
On the plus side, color and markings are very close to the original design.
Leg articulation are really minimal, blah!
I think I'll stick to my plush Appa.

Forget Aang, forget Sokka, there's MOMO!
Last Airbender

More of the toys here if you're curious.
Still no sign of Zhao.
He be sneaky!

BUT WAIT!
THERE'S MOAR!
For those still wailing about the lack of female action figure from the original animation serie, I bring you...
Last Airbender
...
Ok, I want my animation Katara action figure. Pleeeeeaaaase?

I can live with the Zuko one though.
Last Airbender

I spy, with my little eye, in this toy line up an...IROH!
Last Airbender

And could there be a tiny Zhao in there?
*squint*
I swear, that guy is harder to catch in picture than the Loch Ness Monster. Either too small, blurry or wrong identification.

The appa eyes are rather creepy but the also make him look more intelligent.

I shouldn't judge his eyes based on the toy: like that, it's lifeless. It could be also that they seem to look at you straight on, like a human face.
I like Appa with big, huge soft cow eyes.

All you'll need to add to the costume is a huge black wig and voila!

Am I the only one feeling that they hit the uncanny valley with Appa's re-design? I know he would look something like this but I still find it hella creepy. D:
rufftoon
Feb. 9th, 2010 09:21 pm (UTC)
It's just the toy- it may look better on screen.
Hope!

I liked this one:

and I've yet to purchase my very own Appa plush.. I SHOULD HURRY D:
rufftoon
Feb. 9th, 2010 09:57 pm (UTC)
Definitely hurry! With the plush, it could go either way: be cancelled or continue with the popularity of the movie boosting its sale.

RAGE!!!>:{ They will make a Katara action figure for this movie but not for the animated series?! What the hell toy companies?! Ugh and it looks like they had to alter yet another design: Katara's necklace *rolls eyes* The actual costume isn't so bad. It resembles her season three outfit. But still I'm mad. I demand an action figure of the animated Katara!
rufftoon
Feb. 9th, 2010 10:04 pm (UTC)
Poor animated serie never had as much love.

o_O Appa's face, it creeps me out so much. *huggles show Appa plushie* It probably looks a lot better in the movie than still here but, yeah, I want cow eyes, not uncanny valley eyes.
Oh, and not loving the joints on the Katara. Maybe I've been spoiled with the pictures of Japanese figures, but those look really clunky (Zuko's look alright though).
And the changed the design of the Blue Spirit too? He looked kinda like a ninja in the show, here he looks like a demon. o_O
rufftoon
Feb. 9th, 2010 10:24 pm (UTC)
The Blue Spirit mask was always a reference to a demon look. The live action is closer to some noh theater designs, what with the big hair.

Aaaah Appa is scary.

In fact, it's like every figure has the exact same face with different hair/bodies. It's scary.
rufftoon
Feb. 10th, 2010 01:03 am (UTC)
That's to save on manufacturing: a few body plans, recycled for various characters (Agni Kai Zhao and Agni Kai Ozai have the same torso, arms and legs).

:( Appaaa where has your unbearable cuteness gone? Sigh.

Seriously, what does it take to get a picture of Zhao?!? ....maybe this is going to be some Shamalayan twist... something about Zhao's appearance is a huge, huge spoiler for the movie... DUN DUN DUNN.
rufftoon
Feb. 10th, 2010 01:03 am (UTC)
Might look more huggable and fuzzy onscreen.
Maybe...Zhao is camera shy? Naaaaah. He just wants to make a grand entrance!
invaderk
Feb. 10th, 2010 12:08 am (UTC)
If that is Zhao... he has a tiny head. xD That's really all I got from that image.


Also, is it sad that I didn't realize until now that Appa has ears??! I saw the action figure, didn't believe it, and then checked my plush Appa just to be sure. For shaaame.
rufftoon
Feb. 10th, 2010 01:04 am (UTC)
Might be just random fire nation dude. Who knows.
Ha ha, little Appa details can escape us.

Eeek, Creepy Appa /cry

I want gently Appa back. And I don't see Iroh anywhere in that lineup. Nope, not a fat old guy to be seen, just alot of skinny people.

Katara's skin color is too light.

Whose idea was a live action anyways? Can we lynch the people in charge of casting?

Feb. 10th, 2010 01:05 am (UTC)

Why is the action figure for the Indian actor white? O_o

Also, why does Appa have a human face? He's flying into the Uncanny Valley.
rufftoon
Feb. 10th, 2010 01:07 am (UTC)
Maybe early prototypes don't have the right colour?
One can only hope.
As for uncanny valley Appa- hopefully less noticeable on screen.

He's...A TERMINATOR SENT FROM THE FUTURE TO DESTROY THE AVATAR!

I do like that Zuko one, it really looks like Dev Patel! The Appa toy is pretty cool, it'd look great next to Applushie, at least the differences aren't that major. Plus, it's still cute.
rufftoon
Feb. 10th, 2010 04:24 am (UTC)
This seems to be the bigger Zuko toy (there's a small 3,5" one). Appa toy is not as fluffy, but we can't blame him for that, being made out of plastic.
zfiledh
Feb. 10th, 2010 03:08 am (UTC)
Oh yeah!

Hey, toy Zuko is closer to the cartoon Zuko than the live-action Zuko. Say that 6 times fast! :D
rufftoon

Not quite a tongue twist, but still an exercise.

Appa...somehow reminds me of the big turtle Morla from The NeverEnding Story film. Anyone else? No?
rufftoon
Feb. 10th, 2010 04:25 am (UTC)
Not as wrinkly, thankfully.
If they do a trilogy, the giant LionTurtle will look like Morla!

Zuko has FIRING MOTION! And Sokka looks like he has a dead animal on his head, hahah awww <3
rufftoon
Feb. 10th, 2010 04:28 am (UTC)
When you say Zuko has firing motion, I expect him to have a gun now.
I also picture Sokka with a racoon hat on, ha ha!

Katara's face is kind of creeping me out! Haha XD I'm glad that Appa looks so hefty though!
rufftoon

Not only her face, but her hair looks so...detachable.
impetusofadream
Feb. 10th, 2010 09:11 am (UTC)
Ummmmm. Yeah I've never been a fan of action figures based on real people. At least the ones that try to hard to look like them. I love my Mighty Mugg Han Solo *huggles Han* but these are just freakish looking.

I like that thier costume designer clearly did reasearch on Noh and Japanese Theatre for the Blue Spirit...but would someone just yank on all that hair in a fight? I'm still hoping the Kabuki make-up shows up on the Kyoshi warriors.
rufftoon
Feb. 10th, 2010 09:34 pm (UTC)
I agree- the more they try to look like a good likeness of the actor portrayed, the more off they look.
Hard to do a good sculpt.

Feb. 10th, 2010 08:43 pm (UTC)
I dunno. It feels weird to see these versions of our beloved characters.

Sokka looks so weird as a white, depressed guy. Zuko isn't Zuko for me. It looks just like Dev Patel. Good job there but he doesn't look like Zuko. Katara's eyes look lifeless. I hope that someone repaints her like she looks in the animated series. That way, we can at least have our Katara figure.
rufftoon
Feb. 10th, 2010 09:32 pm (UTC)
It's going to be weird to put these right beside my other Avatar figurine.

I'm seeing a figure next to Iroh, but I think my eyes are playing tricks on me. :
rufftoon
Feb. 11th, 2010 06:21 am (UTC)
They're all unpainted.
There's Zuko, Iroh and...and...is it Zhao? A very tiny headed Zhao?
Too hard to tell.

Appa looks kind of 'never ending story'. A bit creepy but I bet the CG is not as such. <:)
