Zwyer Industries Avatar Figures at New York Toy Fair

4 Comments

New York Toy Fair is currently and this year there are a few items on display for Avatar fans. Zwyer Industries have revealed 2 new figures in addition to showing off the final version of their Korra statue. No information on release dates right now, but I am sure that may come as the convention still has a few days to run.

ZwyerKorraStatue

First up is the Korra Statue which we have seen in bits and pieces over the past few months. This is the follow up figure to the Lin Beifong they released last year. It will retail for $108.99. I personally think it looks way better than the Dark Horse Deluxe Korra announced a few weeks ago.

ZwyerChibiAang

Next up is the first of two smaller figurines. This chibi Aang with Momo will retail for $19.99. Overall I really like the design, including Momo is a nice touch, I just feel it is trying to make Aang look a bit too cute, I think I would prefer him looking straight rather than what I assume is him trying to look at Momo on his head. I think some slight adjustments and this could be an amazing figure.

ZwyerChibiKorra

Last up is the Chibi Korra figurine. Again retail price is $19.99. We all know the pose they are trying to replicate here in chibi form and again I think overall it works, I just feel the pose is a little overly done to the point where it looks like a painful position for Korra, I think she is bent over too much and thus her neck is also pointing up too much. Straighten the pose up a bit to match the show better and I think this will be a very iconic figure.

Obviously these are just a few images from the first day of the fair, we do not know how early these figures are at or if changes are even possible. I think the reveal of he cheaper and smaller chibi figurines is going to really excite a lot of fans who were put off by the initial products from Zwyer being so large and expensive. At 20 each these seem much more easy to start collecting.

Thoughts?

    Finally a full reveal!! And it’s everything I hoped for and more… Plus 2 chibis?? Heck yes! I love you Zwyer… I’m sorry that the international fans have has such issues with shipping, but it’s not that often I can revel in the fact I live in the states.

    This isn’t even a very good picture of it, and it still looks great!! Ah, so excited, so satisfied… Made my day! Now just give us a release date so I can start my count down! <3

    The big Korra statue is now available for preorder.

    They are saying it will ship in July, 107.99 is the preorder price. Only seems to be through Zwyer themselves right now so USA only.

    Unfortunately though my thoughts about her face are true, with better pictures, the face really looks off, especially the mouth.

    They have said soon in relation to the Chibi Figures.

    Oh no… You’re right 🙁 I was hoping that was the angle of the picture, but it’s just too small! I personally would have gone for rounder, kinder looking eyes, and less “chipmunk-looking” teeth, but if they had simply taken that same face and made it like 5% bigger it would be far better looking than this! The eyes and mouth should have taken up more of the overall face space… Here she just looks too young, and small… But we’ve seen young and small Korra and she still looked better than that! 😛

    Now that I think of it, though, the Lynn figure’s face wasn’t all that on point either. They made her look way too soft and pretty. Not that Lynn doesn’t have an attractive face in the show, but that wouldn’t be the first word I’d use to describe Chief Beifong’s mug!

    … That said; It’s still better looking than the Dark Horse figure, and I doubt we’ll be seeing any new Korra figures coming out after this. It will take some consideration, but I definitely see myself giving in and getting it anyways!
