The aquatic world of Avatar: The Way of Water is getting the full treatment from Hot Toys, with sixth-scale Jake Sully and Neytiri landing next year.
Blockbuster X 2
It’s almost hard to believe how well Disney’s Avatar sequel has done. From director Jim Cameron, the movie has already grossed almost 2 billion dollars at the global box office, and seems like it’s going to be around for a long time yet.
With that kind of blockbuster status too, you might imagine that there’s more than a bit of merchandise out there. And you’d be right, with just about everything available on store shelves (except a video game, puzzlingly). It’ll be 2024 though, till what might be the best of the best arrives, with Hot Toys’ take on the two main heroes of the story.
Both Jake Sully and Neytiri are come home for collectors, with a pair of 12″ figures that’ll be ready in two versions each. While the standard releases look pretty slick, it’s the deluxe offerings that you’ll really want to see, since they both have light-up stands, based on the undersea world of the film.
Measuring approximately 17.7 inches tall, the Jake Sully 1/6 Scale Figure features a new, highly detailed, hand-painted head plus a braided hair sculpt with rooted fabric hair. His facial and body patterns are carefully recreated with luminous, reflective paint. He wears a tactical vest with ammo, a loincloth with beads, a dagger sheath, armbands, and gauntlets. Jake also comes armed with an axe, a rifle, a dagger, a grenade, and a headset. With over 16 points of articulation and a bendable tail, the Jake Sully 1/6 Scale Figure is also highly poseable.Sideshow Toys press release
The Neytiri 1/6 Scale Figure measures approximately 17.3 inches tall, and features a new, highly detailed, hand-painted head sculpt capturing the likeness of Neytiri in Avatar: The Way of Water. The figure also has a detailed hair sculpt and rooted fabric hair with a sculpted feather headpiece. Her facial and body patterns are expertly recreated with luminous, reflective paint. Neytiri is dressed in a crop top, loincloth, and gauntlets. Her accessories include a necklace, a dagger, a bow, and arrows. The Neytiri 1/6 Scale Figure is highly poseable with over 16 points of articulation and a bendable tail.Sideshow Toys press release
