Avatar, Aang review

Here is my review of Aang, from Avatar, the legend of Aang.

Aang comes with his staff, his glider and Momo, his pet Winged Lemur.

IMO, Aang's sculpt doesn't fare as well as compared to Sokka, . The action figure only bares a resembles of 60% to 70% to his animated counterpart. The figure has a blank expression on its face which causes it to look less like the animated Aang.


Aang fares better in articulation than Sokka. He has cut neck, ball-jointed shoulders, swivel biceps (below the sleeves), pin bows, hinged mid-body articulation, waist joint, ball-jointed hips, double pin knees, swivel calves and pin ankles. The inclusions of cut wrists and a ball joint neck would have made his perfect.

I had thought that the outer yellow pants would have made his hip joints completely useless. While it does somewhat hinders the hip articulation, the use of soft rubber for his outer pants does allow for some room for his hips to move.

That's all folks

My Recent Purchase

Ben Tennyson, my first action figure from the animation series Ben 10, and Zukko and Aang from Avatar. Aang and Zukko will probably be my last purchase from this animated series unless series 2 makes its way to Singapore which I think is doubtful.

Avatar, Sokka review

Here is my review of Sokka, from the toy series Avatar, The Legend of Aang. He is the first figure I picked up from this series. I also bought Aang and Zuko.

Those who watched Avatar, the Last Air Bender should be pretty familiar with the character Sokka. He is one of the main characters in the animated series and most of the jokes revolve around him.


He comes with one boomerang, one boomerang holder, two war clubs and one spear.
While I don't think he looks 100% like his animated counterpart, but there's at least an eighty to ninety percent likeness. He is sculpted to 6 inch scale and looks fine when placed with other 6 inch action figures. One point to note is that both his feet point towards each other (see picture below). What's more to say, pictures speak a thousand words.




Happy feet

Scale comparison

He has quite the articulation for a mass market figure.
He has cut neck, ball-jointed shoulders, swivel biceps (below the sleeves), pin bows, hinged mid-body articulation, waist joint, ball-jointed hips, pin knees and pin ankles.

The inclusions of wrists or mid forearm swivel and cut tight joints would have been great.

12 inch figures

Sideshow's 12 inch Star Wars figures was the reason I started collecting 12 inch figures. Luke (not in picture) was the first 12 inch figure I bought, followed by Obi-wan and Anakin Skywalker. I also have the Medicom Vader (ep VI) and one Medicom Stormtrooper.

My Recent Purchase

My latest addition to my Dragonball Hybrid collection. I checked Bandai's website today. There doesn't seem to be any more new figures for this line in the immediate future.
