Saw a facebook post earlier this morning, with a link to Darkhorse's website...

"Dark Horse Comics and Nickelodeon are expanding their incredibly successful publishing partnership to include a wide range of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra collectable items.  These brand-new products ranging from figures to plush will debut at International Toy Fair in New York February 2014, and will be released in May.

...

A full list of products in development include: limited-edition statues, figurines, and busts, as well as, featured plush, drinking glasses, cups, coffee mugs, coaster sets, magnets, playing cards, badges, pins, lunch boxes, sculptural pins, among other items."

In other news, Darkhorse now essentially owns every penny I make from here until May. Grin

Unbelievable. Finally...Korra merchandise?

Crap, but I'm saving money for the Blu-Ray of Book 2. Sorry Nick, my money is going to the real thing instead >< even if I really want some cool Korra stuff.

What's up with this part of the press release?  Today is the last day of Toy Fair and there aren't any images of said merchandise.  =/

If this does well, do you think it will somehow convince Nick to release Atla soundtrack? Or Book 2 of Lok... I would pay fortune for those.

And isn't it time for a good Avatar game? I'm waiting for that too Nick. Since THQ is dead, maybe someone competent might pick Avatar up.

I'm sure Nickelodeon would love that.  xD

I kind of suspect that if they do a tie-in game, it's not going to be full retail the way the A:tLA games were -- current/last-gen development is really expensive, while PSN/XBL development might be more reasonable.

They'll probably make a fighting game if lazy (with briefs cutscenes for history) or a adventure game with (maybe) "open world".
Honestly, I can't see how they can pull of a ATLA game :p. Korra would've been a bit easier (it could go to Book 1 and stop at UnaVaatu's final fight, and extend to book 3 if it's out).

Only worthwhile if Shady Shin is a playable character.

Nothing in that product list interests me, but I'm glad the franchise is getting more merchandising support, and hopefully good sales will lead to more stuff, like poseable collector-oriented action figures.

Hm, if the high-end, adult-oriented stuff sells well, maybe Dark Horse will start producing comics for more mature readers, as well. Not that I want violence or sex in my ATLA comics, but something that takes Sokka seriously as a character would be nice.

Nah worry Stupendous. Shady is the main character.
There is some strange glitches (Amon's neck growing taller at some scenes, the characters hovering when they're supposed to walk, Bolin being voiced by Peter Cullen with his Optimus voice) but you can use catch moves on Mako all the time, this alone is what make the game interesting.

I want them but why are the colors black and orange? =/

More loot listed here. Just ctrl-f "Legend of Korra" and click the item codes on the left to get a picture of the merchandise.

In my opinion, the colour scheme are bland and the elemental symbols look like they've been stuck on with glue, but maybe that's just the picture for the latter. Meh. It's not for me. Maybe if it had different colours, I might consider it.

I guess I can use them for drinking games while watching the show with others. Risky though, especially if someone makes a strong rule.

And they're probably those color for ease plus orange is Nick's thing, and the black part could be the catchall background for the show title that comes on after Tenzin finishes speaking. Or the Nick HD thing mix. Or Dark Horse wants to be edgy.

Not a promising start... The orange is pretty perplexing. Ahintoflime makes a good point, can't think of any other reason why they'd be that color. But at least the symbols are more or less correct unlike the movie merch.

The coasters are kind of cool, I'd definitely pick those up if/when I need new coasters. Hopefully this is just the beginning and there's much more to come. I'm not generally the type to advocate buying stuff for reasons other than wanting to have it, but for those of us who are big fans of merch (which I certainly am), buying some of these first line items is likely to lead to more ATLA merchandise. This may be like their barometer to see if there's interest.

I prefer a slightly smaller size Wink

Also, they've now put up a page for the lunchbox we'd already seen, as well as a magnet set, my future shot glasses (I guess they're starting to acknowledge their adult demographic?), and a coffee mug. Smiley
