Those would require effort moving them. And you can't paly with them either. But the idea of a life size Toruk gracing my front yard would be epic win!

Wow speaking of that, i am trying to get ahold of my friend, he got me in contact with a sculpture company about 2 months ago. If you know of brutal legend you know of the fluffy in there. I was trying to get a an 18 inch sculpture done of one. Well i left them an email and a phone message, i got an email back.

Hello Jack Flynn. ( my name is jacob . . . they got my name wrong LOLWTFBBQ, i go by and everyone calls me jake )

    We are pleased that you inquired with us about a sculpture. We do need more detail and refences if you wish to proceed. I will be glad to help you in anyway that i can.
Our sculptures are one of a kind. We do not, and will not sell them or any replica commissioned by a customer to anyone. We do however require that if the sculpture is of a copyritten subject.
That you have expressive written consent sent to us by mail from the owner of said copyright. No other way will be accepted. It must be mailed from the owners address and include a contact phone number.

    Our sculptures are custom sculputres that can include, special paints, hair, moving semi mechanical parts, glass, bone substitute, metal work, polyresin, synthetic skinfeel rubber, and artificial accessories if requested. Extra fees will apply for accessories. We only make 1-1 scale sculptures, we do not and will not alter the size of the original design. We do require more information about you subject. The refrence picture you have shown is not enough. You said the size reference "eddie" is about 6 feet tall. That would make your "fluffy" maybe about 11 feet tall. A sculpture of that size will run starting at $10,000. That will not include shipping, you will be held responsibly for shipping of the items once manufacturing is complete.  . . . . .

I was like WTF when i read 1-1 only . . . but was like ok cool. Then i seen the price . . . x.x deal breaker right there. Shipping not included, i died laughing.
I cant remember their name for crap . . . but if i could and did have the money. I might have contacted them back, but after that email i didnt. Nor did i save the whole email.

I can imagine a 1-1 replica of Toruk, but id just be happy with an Ikran. Or a facsimily of me as a Na'Vi standing next to my Ikran, both of us staring off into the distance. *happy tears face*

I work at walmart and noticed them before they were on shelf. I managed to get paid 2 days later and got the only neytiri and one of the jakes. Both are the 6" with i TAG thing to make your own 3d model if you have a web cam.

I have yet to get the itag plugin to work. I tried, opera, firefox, safari for windows, netscape, IE, skyfire for windows. They just bring up this nice picture . . . . but no plugin trys to load. Maybe its not compatible with win7. Im gonna get neytiri, but im bent on finding the WII exclusive Tsu'tey. I also want warrior jake movie masters . . . . . I have the ps3 exclusive Avatar Jake in RDA attire, movie masters avatar jake, the 3-1/4 jake and neytiri, TORUK, jakes banshee, Tsu'teys banshee is on order. ( no eta yet tho  :(  ) I have Grace. But im probably going to stop there. This european toy company ( underground toys ) signed on to the merc deal. I want to see what they start out with. Why knows maybe we will get better figures than these mattel ones. Example of a figurine made by UT http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=UT033250 soooo hopefully something thats a little higher in standards comes out. They do actually put a WHOLE lot of detail in their items, i ordered a darth vader for my friends b-day. It was 70bux shipped but it was worth it, even if it was only 8 inches tall. He keeps it in a safe next to his car money stash.

I didn't have trouble getting the itags to work. My biggest issue is getting the itags into view of the webcam. The itags work dd\ecently. though it seems if there is heavy traffic at the itag website, the whole thing runs a little slow. but not an entirely huge deal.

Oddly enough, the walmarts in my area have pulled the avatar line off the shelves. Not sure why, but the avatar toys haven't been available for over a week. It may be a supply issue, but i dunno. Walmart gets daily deliveries, so i'm sure something would have shown up by now. However, i think waiting an additional couple of weeks may prove frutiful. I do know toys r us has the toys, but they're more expensive than walmart. With other stores having the toys, i'm thinking walmart is just having a supply issue at the moment.

My walmart still has them. Anyways, I have not opened my figures so i don't know if the i tag works or not. Bot of mine are the movie masters ones. They only have 3 in this size. The last on besides jake and neytiri is pissed off mode colonel Quaritch when he is in the forest.

The walmart in my area has pulled them, toys r us has pulled them and target just keeps getting amp suits and the four wheel like thing. they havent had anything else. i sorta sucks how little stock these stores are getting. but i dont know what mattels deal is either. we know that warrior jake is available, just vhtf. but the website still lists him as coming soon, and thats the same for other products that are available but vhtf. i dont know, there was this thread at naviblue . . . . they were talking about there actually being multiple series of similar items out already. THey said mattel has a series A thru E at the moment, i can confirm the differences because i have seen the norm avata with rda gun, there is one with a shirt and one without. There is also a jake sully in a wheel chair that has long hair and one with short hair. I also found a Tsu'tey in a shoprite toy bin that had a single pole arror, not a double like he normally is packaged with. I didnt pick him up but i wish i did, it was 4 bux.

It could a production issue, or they may be waiting to see what demand there is. It makes sense to wait and see what demand will be like. In the end, i'm hoping they make more. It fails that the toys aren't available.

Just do a search for Avatar.  There's not much out yet, but there will be tons eventually, I'm sure.

I saw one post (I think) mention this line.  If you don't know abut Sideshow, go look through their stuff on things like Lord of the Rings.  They are absolutely stunning, collector quality figures.  Some are obviously better than others.

The AMP Suit is huge and really expensive, but it shows you the detail they put into their products.  They are limited edition and the really popular figures will appreciate in value (their original Balrog from LoTR was selling for 2-3x the original price on ebay long after the production run was finished).

They're expensive, but if you have the means, Sideshow is the line to get (once they start making them available).

The Noble collection currently has a couple bone knife replicas and jewelry replicas available. They won't ship until the end of february, but you can order them now. Replicas include Jake's bone knife and choker, as well as jewelry that Neytiri wears as well.

The noble Collection makes exceptional quality replicas. I own a few pieces from the Noble Collection and recommend them, even though they are a bit pricey. You get what you pay for.

Yea the Noble Collection things look ok. But when comparing the jewelry, it seems a bit off to me. For example Neytiri's choker beads are not clear, yet they are in the replica.

Yea, that all is way to pricey for me, so I'm making my own. Works quite well, Neytiris is by far the easiest though.

Sometimes companies will accidently release too early and run out of everything before they have a chance to make more so there is an initial surge of toys but then they dissapear from shelves for a little while. This may be the case. It may not.

Noble Collection had the same issue with the lord of the rings merchandise. Demand was far greater than supply. And backorders piled up so fast they stopped taking new orders temporarily to catch up. Shipping delays are most likely caused by factory/manufacture production capacity issues. NC is generally very good at honoring all pre-paid orders. So while the extended wait is annoying, rest assured that you should get your items. this is from previous experience with NC back during the huge Lord of the Rings merchandising craze.
