Avatar: The High Ground volumes 1-3 up for preorder

Amazon now has Volumes 1-3 of Avatar-The High Ground available to pre-order. There is also updated descriptions and release dates. Currently it shows Volume 2 and 3 are going to release the same month, I wouldn’t be surprised to see these dates changed a few more times before it’s all said and done. Volume 2 now has a cover image as well, big thanks to Exostike on the Kelutral Discord for sharing that image.

Volume 1-Release date October 10th, 2022

It has been almost a decade since the humans were forced to leave Pandora—but now they’re returning—with an armada of heavily-armed starships!

After years of peace, Jake Sully has settled down with Neytiri and raised a family, so for him, the stakes are even higher than when he first went to war against the corporate might of the RDA.

During the development process of creating the four Avatar sequels, a lot of new ideas and stories were created and discussed. One such EPIC original story idea that didn’t make it into the sequels was James Cameron’s original story—“The High Ground.” Cameron shared what he had written with Dark Horse Comics and it is now being adapted by award-winning author Sherri L. Smith (The Toymaker’s Apprentice, Orleans), and illustrated by Brazilian artist Guilherme Balbi.

Avatar: The High Ground Volume 1 ventures into all-new territory in the Avatar saga, and is a direct prequel to the highly-anticipated film sequel Avatar 2!

Volume 2-December 6th, 2022

Humans have returned to Pandora—with an armada of starships—but Jake Sully and the Na’vi are ready for them!

Knowing this day would come, Jake has trained his Na’vi warriors with a plan that should make it too costly for the humans to try again . . . if the plan works.

But, any chain of events is only as strong as the weakest link, and in this case the weak link is human nature. As the plan unravels, Jake and Neytiri must race against time to return to Pandora and save their children before the starships land.

James Cameron’s epic original story “The High Ground” continues in this graphic novel adaptation written by award-winning author Sherri L. Smith (The Toymaker’s Apprentice, Orleans) and illustrated by Diego Galindo (Stranger Things: The Tomb of Ybwen, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers). Avatar: The High Ground Volume 2 takes fans to parts of the Avatar universe never anticipated!

Volume 3-December 20th, 2022

Jake Sully’s fears have come crashing to Pandora, guns blazing. The Sky People are planet-side, and taking Hell’s Gate by storm.

Jake and Neytiri’s children are still on base, surrounded and outgunned. Years of advancement on Earth means they’ll be bringing more firepower than Jake could anticipate. Unable to fully rely on his intel, Jake will have to improvise and risk it all to protect his family, his people, and their home. The battle is underway and every Na’vi is in danger.

Experience the epic finale of James Cameron’s original story “The High Ground” in this graphic novel adaptation written by award-winning author Sherri L. Smith (The Toymaker’s Apprentice, Orleans) and illustrated by Agustin Padilla (Suicide Squad, Transformers, Borderlands, Predator: Hunters II) and Miguel Angel Ruiz (The Passing, Crossed: Badlands). The exciting conclusion to Avatar: The High Ground leads you directly into the opening of the long-awaited film sequel Avatar 2!

Lego Con 2022

Officially announced yesterday at Lego Con 2022, was our first official look at an Avatar Lego set, Toruk Makto and the Tree of Souls. It was a fun presentation with Jon Landau kicking things off, followed by Josh Izzo being at Lego Con to talk about the set, no direct embeds were allowed on this video, however the link below should take you right to the start of the Avatar portion-

I think Lego is an awesome brand, very high quality products that also is reflected in the price. I didn’t think I’d have any desire to grab any Lego sets until I watched the Lego Con stream. However after watching my mind was changed. This is such a fun looking set and it’s obvious a lot of thought and care went into designing it, I love the pa’li (direhorse) that is included, the toruk (Great Leonopteryx) is truly epic in size, and the mini figs, they look phenomenal. This set comes with Mo’at, Neytiri, Jake Sully as Toruk Makto, and Tsu’Tey. This set is supposed to be the largest of the Avatar sets that have been teased so far, and is $149.99 USD. With the hype for Avatar increasing as the original movie rereleases into theaters, and as Avatar 2 approaches I expect a lot of the merchandise to fly off the shelves this year. So if you want to make sure you get one you can preorder one now through Lego.com, which shows the set will ship out by October 1 of 2022. You can preorder it here-https://www.lego.com/en-us/product/toruk-makto-tree-of-souls-75574
