lego avatar way water new sets 2022

LEGO today unveiled the products derived from the second installment of the Avatar film saga, titled Avatar: The Way of Water, which will be available from January 1, 2023. On the menu, at least five boxes whose public prices range from 25 to 100 € with an underwater atmosphere, a few creatures and a few machines. The aquatic vegetation is just as symbolic there as it was in the terrestrial version in the various products already marketed.

As for the figurines provided, LEGO logically retains the formula already used in the sets we have talked about a lot with longer arms and legs than usual as well as molded heads with more or less successful pad printing depending on the characters.

All this is very well sold on the pretty packaging, it seems much poorer to me on the visuals which only show the actual contents of these boxes.

We close this series of reviews of the novelties of the new LEGO Avatar range with a quick overview of the contents of the set. 75574 Toruk Makto & Tree of Souls, a box of 1212 pieces available at the public price of €149.99 since October 1, 2022. This set is in principle the "flagship" of the range, it is therefore around it that the other boxes revolve, some of which cannot be summarized ultimately only more or less affordable extensions.

This box is therefore logically the one that allows us to obtain a little more vegetation than in the other sets. Pandora is represented here in a more credible way than in the other products of the range with three subsets which are accompanied by the Tree of Souls and the geography of the places is more or less respected with at least one of the rocky arches which surround this tree. However, it's still as poor in lush vegetation, the visual illustration of the packaging can suggest something more dense, and LEGO does not really make an effort to offer us something frankly dense in this box, however. sold for €150.

The tree does not demerit, it is relatively consistent and consumes parts from the inventory provided. The base is a stack of many elements, the trunk is relatively detailed and it will be necessary to go through the somewhat repetitive assembly of the many sub-assemblies which constitute the ends of the branches. Everyone will have an opinion on the result, I find the construction rather convincing.

The other big build on offer in this box is a Leonopteryx and LEGO is going all out on the creature's head with two nicely executed pieces. We find a very cartoon spirit as for the two Banshees of the set 75572 Jake & Neytiri's First Banshee Flight but this product is aimed at a very young audience and this colorful interpretation of the creature seeks to convince them to ask their parents to buy this box.

The wings of the Leonopteryx are here also covered with soft plastic elements covered with legal notices, I'm not really a fan of this solution which, in my opinion, is a little easy. The wings are colorful and detailed, but the combination of those large single-sided printed plastic inserts with classic pieces doesn't strike me as delivering the polished aesthetic we might have hoped for for a $150 box in which the creature in question is one of the flagship products.

Leonopteryx's wings and legs are movable enough to allow for some interesting poses and the build can be staged atop the provided rock arch. Even if the joints are a little too visible with parts whose color is not really fitting with that of the rest of the construction, it is well seen and it will be possible to display a pretty scene on the corner of a shelf between two play sessions. Speaking of having fun, we quickly realize that LEGO has designed this range as a set of essential products for each other: there is not much to do with the contents of this box without having a little opposition on hand.

Four minifigures are delivered in this set, Mo'at, Neytiri, Jake Sully in Toruk Makto and Tsu'tey mode, and we have the whole range of facial expressions and hairstyles imagined by LEGO to interpret these different characters. I won't go back on my perception of these figurines, it hasn't changed in a few weeks and I find them disappointing even if I gladly salute the effort in terms of the pad printing of faces and outfits. We also obtain here a copy of the Pa'li ​​(or Equidius) also available in the set 75573 Floating Mountains: Site 26 & RDA Samson, the molded figurine is sorely lacking in pad printing to really convince me.

As with some of the other sets in the range, I'm having a little trouble finding the equivalent of $150 worth of content in this set. The decor is certainly a little more dense, the Leonopteryx with a wingspan of 49 cm is imposing but it is still very quickly assembled and we are a little unsatisfied on arrival.

This "juniorization" of the Avatar universe may disappoint some fans, but I think that sooner or later we will be entitled to a more detailed set aimed at the brand's adult clientele. The first film was released in 2009 and those who enjoyed it back then are now 13 years older and perhaps waiting for a more detailed spin-off to display as part of their collection. On the other hand, I have no illusions about the next wave of LEGO derivative products which will be inspired by the second part of the saga, we will find there the many molded parts created for this range and continuity will logically be in order.
