Korra statue
Korra comics
We've got a couple of news to share about Avatar that were revealed at SDCC. First, this Korra statue (you can click on the image to expand) is the latest addition of merchandise made by Dark Horse. If you remembered their announcement last year, Dark Horse did say they will be producing both Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra merchandise. I'm looking forward to more amazing statues of the other characters too, if they ever make them.

Secondly, as expected, Dark Horse will also release The Legend of Korra comics and the storyline will be set after Book 4: Balance. According to Bryan's tumblr post, Mike will be writing it and Bryan will be consulting on the art. The image is one made by Bryan as an announcement for the Dark Horse panel which IGN has an article describing on the things that were said at the panel. Whether this is the finalized cover of the first of three volumes is still unknown but hopefully, we will get to see more art in the time to come. I'm personally interested to know if we will see more of Kuvira after she was taken away by the Republic City police in the finale. Does she go on trial for her crimes? Are there any of her people in the Earth Kingdom who are going to take it upon themselves to carry on her legacy? It's a mystery.

Avatar merchandise at SDCC 2015

SDCC 2015 exclusive art print
Lin SDCC 2015 exclusive figure
IGN has released images of some exclusives that Nickelodeon will be selling at San Diego Comic Con from 9th July to 12th July next month.

Among them, there are two Avatar related merchandise!

The first is a limited edition "Avatar Generations" print featuring both Aang and Korra which is embedded in this post. As always, you can click on the image to expand it.

The second is a convention exclusive edition of the tough as nails Chief Lin Beifong from The Legend of Korra. This figurine is made by Zwyer Industries, established by two animation directors who have worked on shows like Young Justice, The Legend of Korra, Star Wars: Rebels, just to name a few.

The convention exclusive figurine has a high-gloss finish on her armor and has a gold colored name plate. An image of it has been embedded in this post and you can click on it to get a full view of the picture.

If you can't make it to SDCC, do not fret, a regular edition of Lin will be made available in the future. It's exactly the same as the convention exclusive edition but the figurine has a matte finish and the name plate is silver colored.

These are some of the specifications of both figurines, according to the website:

- Pre-painted PVC Kit
- Created with direct input from "The Legend of Korra" crew & creators
- Easy to assemble
- Laser etched metal name plate
- Individually hand painted
- Figure stands approx. 11" tall

Also, if you head to Zwyer Industries home page, you will notice a banner at the top containing silhouettes of characters from ATLA and TLOK with the words "Coming Soon". Now that sounds very promising!
