Don't remember if this was mentioned before but I noticed the Amazon listing for 7" Zuko mentions there is a chase figure for him. So I guess a third version of the character out there, unless the helmeted Target exclusive isn't as exclusive as it seems at the moment.

I don't think the helmeted Zuko is Target exclusive. I think it's just one of the "Platinum edition" chases.

Helmeted Zuko is a Gold Label, not Platinum. If he does have a chase we haven't seen it yet. And if they do, that's a lot of mileage out of these figures, because we know Aang is also getting an Avatar State Gold Label.

Any info on where that gold label Aang might be?
I just recently got my wife into the show. And now she's into the McFarlane 5" line. She bought Aang with Glider at Walmart the other day. All our stores are sold out, and Walmart and Amazon have the individual figures for double retail plus.
BUT, walmart.com does have a listing for 5" Assortment for retail. I rolled the dice, and ordered 4. Four figures are coming from three different DCs. So far only one has come in, and it was Zuko which really made my wife happy as he was the one she wanted most. We'll just return to store any dupes. Hoping we get lucky and get Sokka and Katara, three more chances.

No confirmation on where, but Walmart or Target is a safe bet.
We had a recent set of leaks in case you didn't know, Gold Label 7" Avatar State Aang, a 5" AS Aang, and 2 more new characters for the 5" line in Toph and Iroh.

Toph and Iroh? Awesome, safe bets, but still very welcome. I'd take Azula too.
Also, just finished Korra, and very much want Korra, Bolin, Mako, Beifong, Asami. Even Tenzin, Opal, Bumi, and Naga.

I kinda regret passing on the 5 inch line because it's going through characters at a quicker pace. Maybe if they go back up on Walmart.com for retail, I'll jump on them.

I kinda doubt that the 7 inch figures will actually ship out tomorrow from Amazon. I feel like we'd have come across in hand images from people finding them at retail by now.

I just found 5” aang last night and deluxe aang today so I’m all caught up on the 5” line. Have the 7” line preordered along with the gold label zuko.

I just looked at my Amazon and it shows 7” zuko delivery for Tuesday and aang for Wednesday.

Man I'm curious to see how tall the 7" figures end up being.

I can do one McF My Hero figure. Really haven’t been collecting McF stuff. Oh my GF just got suicide squad Harley. I’ll also do the diamond select avatar figures.

So right off the bat I have concerns for the overall scale of the 7” line. Aizawa is an adult so if they were doing similar scale to My Hero, as a kid, he would need to be much shorter. Diamond select is also 7” scale and that zuko is much shorter than McF zuko. Most likely to accommodate making adults in that line. I don’t have Ozai because I may be abandoning that line for these.

Overall I like the figure. The sculpt is nice. I’m not big on permanent screaming heads so would like alternate heads and alternate hands for more posing/bending stance options. It has ratchet joints so everything feels solid. I like the big fire bending accessory more than the diamond select that has to delicately balance on a stand because it’s too heavy for it.

I’m not quite ready to open up my 5” figures because you have to destroy that packaging. I can get deluxe aang out since he’s in a box.

I want to see what line gets the most characters. Based off zuko being this big I’m iffy on them making adults in 7” because they would be huge. They might have messed up here, but we will see in the future.

Toe to top of hair he is about 7.5”. Diamond select zuko is about 6”.
