Because Avatar Didn't Make Enough Money in Theaters

Umm...there's not a lot to comment on, probably because any of us could have seen this coming from a thousand miles away. But yeah, Avatar is likely to be the best-/fastest-selling DVD or Blu-Ray ever.

I'll be seeing my copy for the first time tonight; I was, um...inconvenienced by schoolwork yesterday.

Avatar is the #1 grossing movie. DVD sales are likely to follow. Sadly, merchandising has been slow to keep pace.

I think merchandizing is not their interest right now.  Milking out as much money that they can from simply the movie and DVD is their main focus, and I think they believe that focusing on merchandise will cause the work with the DVD/movie to slow down.

To be honest, I wonder if the lack of merchandising is intentional. After all, the film is about the evils of commercial excess.

If they sold Avatar branded arrows, dipped in a neurotoxin that would stop the heart in one minute, I'd buy them.

You can't buy one. You have to choose him and he must choose you remember? LOL.

THat would be epic. If they sold the massive bows to fire them with would be even better.

In the back of the pet store is a huge cliff face habitat filled with ikrans. so you go choose and be chosen accordingly.

Keep in mind, you have to take the first flight right afterward to seal the bond.  You can't wait either.

Before you could take an Ikran home the FAA will require you to take a 72 hour flight safety course and present the Certificate of Ikran Flight Safety to the store owner.
