I'll buy it the same way I bought Elves.... at high clearance. Selling $3 baby wind dragons for 3000% profit will always be dear to my heart. 

Unlike Elves which was an original concept, Avatar will always be tied to a movie franchise. Elves also had the perk of having it's brick built critters being recognizable to anyone. Dragons, pegasus, eagle, lion, fox, turtle, bat.

I couldn't tell you what the things on the Avatar boxes are. I see a 6 legged birdwolf, a flying snake with a goatee, blue dogehorse, and weird mech bird with a greyhound face.

Granted, I hope the sets take off after retirement as I enjoy making money.

I don't even know anyone, of any age, that liked Avatar or are looking forward to the Avatar movies.
Yet for some reason there is all this hype. I truly don't know if I'm just out of the loop or this is fabricated hype.
In any case I'm in for huge discount. Or none at all if discounts dictate.

I agree that the delay before the sequel was way too long....almost Star Wars too long.

and I loved the original film and the ride in Disney World was the best ride; bar none (IMO)...we'll have to see where this franchise goes..but in terms of set selection LEGO got it right (IMO)...all memorable scenes.

IIRC Avatar's success was thanks to the 3D gimmick in theatres which did not (does not?) translate well to the home entertainment settings.

Avatar is part of Disney.  There is always some level of fabricated hype when it comes to Disney

My wide and I enjoyed the first one. Not super fan status, but we do tend to watch it probably once a year. Watched it with out 7 & 5 year old girls for the first time, on Disney+ to get the highest definition, but knowing it was also edited. They enjoyed it as well, and hated it when the Banshee's died. 

That said, the strongest set here is 75571, in my opinion. At least thats a key scene. The others are nice too, but really, these all only work as a complete set.

The tree of souls is Disney Bonsai Tree, Im going to want at least 3 times the amount of Pink willow fronds; and Toruk Makto is NOT large enough. He is barely larger than the other Banshee's

Definitely going to go see the newest one in theaters.

Agree and disagree. Avatar's 3D was incredible in theatre and at home. I still watch the 3d version once a year on my 65 inch plasma and it is outstanding. Now many other 3d movies are terrible but Avatar is certainly not.  

I'll be going to the theatre in late September when they are re releasing the original for a short period before the sequel. Really excited for that. 

If you have not seen Avatar in 3D make it a priority to go out an watch it. It is incredible. The entire world and characters really come alive. Whereas the 2D version is just Pocahontas on an alien planet.
