New Avatar LEGO set includes Tree of Souls and Toruk Makto
With LEGO Con 2022 in full swing and the release of Avatar: The Way of the Water several more months, a new LEGO set has been revealed via TheBrickFan which features various characters and creatures from the james cameron sci-fi epic.
The set, simply called LEGO Avatar Toruk Makto and Tree of Souls, features a recreation of a scene in the first Avatar film which depicts Jake Sully, shortly after taming the Great Leonopteryx, arriving at the Tree of Souls, the most spiritually significant place for the Na’vi. The set is the first in what is likely a new line for the LEGO brand and will bring audiences back to the colorful world of Pandora in a new way.
The set will include four characters from the movie such as Jake Sully, Neytiri, Mo’at and Tsu’Tey. In addition to the characters, the set will also come with a Direhorse for the characters to ride on. However, the Direhorse cannot be compared to the size of the Great Leonopteryx, known to the Na’Vi as Toruk, which towers over the other figures. The figure stands out among the rest with its eye-catching bright red colors, similar to the real creature seen in the movie.
The biggest piece that comes with the set is the inclusion of The Tree of Souls, a location first seen in the original film. The set includes the large tree with its iconic branches that resemble a purple sea anemone. Next to the tree is other vegetation and rocks next to what appears to be a small floating mountain. The large LEGO set will have 1,212 pieces for fans to assemble.
The LEGO set will be among several Avatar-related products likely to release in the coming months ahead of the release of the new movie. If the sequels to the sci-fi epic prove to be as big as the first film, more LEGO sets will likely be expected down the line, which could potentially echo the popularity of other themes such as Star wars, The Avengersand jurassic worldwho all ended up developing into their own video games.
LEGO Avatar Toruk Makto and Tree of Souls will be available for purchase this fall on October 1 and will be priced at $149.99.
The first one Avatar the film returns to theaters on September 23. Its sequel, Avatar: The Way of the Waterwill be released on December 16.
