One of my personal favourite cartoon sagas is that of Avatar: The Last Airbender and the sequel series The Legend Of Korra, but sadly I discovered Avatar too late and missed all the cool collectibles.

But luckily, Dark Horse have picked up the merchandising rights and plan a series of products including figuries, busts and plush toys!Read on, fellow collectors…

About Avatar: The Last Airbender

Launched in February 2005, Avatar is an animated comic adventure set in a fantastical Asian world. This epic story follows the journey of twelve-year-old Aang, a reluctant hero who must lead the fight against the evil Fire Nation to restore balance in his war-torn world. The world is divided into four nations: Water, Earth, Air and Fire. Within each nation is an order of masters who possess the ability to manipulate their native element. They call themselves Waterbenders, Earthbenders, Airbenders, and Firebenders. The most powerful bender in the world is the Avatar, the spirit of the planet incarnate.

About The Legend of Korra

Launched in April 2012, The Legend of Korra is an animated adventure series, from the creators of the highly-acclaimed Avatar: The Last Airbender, that follows a 17-year-old headstrong and rebellious girl named Korra who continually challenges and bucks tradition on her quest to become a fully realized Avatar in a world where benders are under attack.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
