I finally got my Avatar toys last weekend.
When I reached home, it was almost immediate...I opened up these toys.
I wanted to see how the creatures look inside these box.
Are they detail? The size? How's the colours? What's an i-Tag?...etc.
Overall, I'm very impressed with these toys series that Mattel make for Avatar.
Especially the AMP suit, which I'll post at the next post.
It's really fantastic!!
But now, I have one problem and that is my computer... it can't support the i-Tag requirements.
I'm not sure what is lacking but it's probably due to my computer age that I kept getting the error code from the programme at the i-tag website.
So I'll skip the part about i-Tags for the time being.
Back to the Avatar Creatures.
The Direhorse is more detailed out of the box as compared to the picture at the back of the packaged.
Sorry to say, but the picture on the back of the box packaging looks unreal and plastic.
The actual Direhorse figure looks more solid and realistic.
For example, the horseshoe, they are darker brown in colour instead of the box packaged that shows a lighter brown!
As for the Leonopteryx, it's really a giant!
I measured the front wing tips, one end to the other, it's about 51cm apart.
I didn't expect it's size and it can't fit into my small 40x23x25cm(LXBXH) display tank that I've prepared to use it for Avatar display.
The Leonopteryx is a good looking figure and it comes with a clear display stand.
