For the cheaper line these look good. Appa is definitely undersized. If they did one for the 7” line he would probably be the right size for this scale and be undersized for the 7”.

I’m excited for the 7” line. I have the first series dst figures and I like them but they could be better. Especially the recent series. I think McFarlane would have the legs to get more characters out than dst so I’m happy to switch. The my hero line is hit and miss for me so I hope they learn from their mistakes and make the avatar line really solid.

Yeah, these look pretty much on par with the DST stuff. Zuko, Sokka and Appa are pretty much spot on, while the faces on Katara and Ang are a little iffy. I'm not a fan of highly stylized figures, so I'll probably skip these, unless they have really cool effects.

I think these look better than the DST stuff. The sculpting here is more impressive, even if DST did the likeness on Aang and Katara a smidge better. These have sculpted textures on them that they've pulled off quite nicely.

... and despite having less points of articulation than the DST stuff, these probably have better range.

Zuko looks amazing! I'm going to have to do in-hand comparisons before I decide which line I prefer, but if McFarlane uses their really soft plastic for tunics and capes, that'll seal the deal. The DSTs look pretty good, but I need Katara to be able to get into those deep tai chi stances.

Appa is very cool, though the figures don't do much for me. Hoping for something more collector-friendly with the 7" line.

Our first look at what looks like the 5" assortment and 7" basic Appa from the listings.

Loving all the textures on these. That really puts them above a lot of previous ATLA toys, it adds something to that fully saturated color.

And I can't wait for Appa, even though he ate Momo.

Maybe it's not actually Appa?

In The Legend of Korea, there were some baby flying bison, those would be closer to the scale in the photo.

Either way, I'm in. FLYING BISON!

Always get a chuckle out of autocorrect changing Korra, to Korea.

Talking about the 5" figures and Appa.

Also first look at 7" Zuko.

These look great! Might outdo DST in both scales, from the looks of it. Can't remember the last time I paid $10 for an actual licensed action figure with articulation and accessories. (Funko doesn't count). Been making my way through the series for the first time recently, so I'm on something of an Avatar kick. Snagged all 6 from Walmart just now.

They look pretty good. I'll grab the 5" and then see how much progress the 7" line makes. Does it seem like the two Aangs have the same face sculpt? Surprised one doesn't have a more determined or neutral expression to make both offerings tempting.

7" Zuko looks great, but with that expression, it better be able to pull off some good poses.

The 5 inch figures and Appa are available for pre-order at Walmart right now, if anyone is collecting those.

Great to see a 7” figure. I don’t see an alternate head but I’m hoping for one maybe in the bottom of the packaging. It’s not a bad head I just don’t need constant screaming face. I hope the line takes off. There are so many characters I want to see. If they have zuko in package I imagine they have all of series one ready. Probably just holding out to get people to jump on the 5” ones first.
