I love James Cameron’s Avatar, and am super excited for the upcoming sequel. I also happen to love LEGO a great deal. With The Way of Water (finally) on the horizon, this Fall has finally given fans some LEGO sets based on the original film…and they’re all pretty neat. LEGO was kind enough to send me the Floating Mountains: Site 26 & RDA Samson set and I was blown away at the level of detail and play factor it brings:

Seriously, this set does a lot of cool things. From incorporating a wide variety of LEGO pieces (some I haven’t seen before), to capturing the “natural” details, and the impressive minifigures…there’s a LOT to love in this set. If anything, it left me eager to pick up the rest of the Avatar sets they’ve released.

Even if you’re not a big fan of the movie, this is something I think general toy/LEGO fans will enjoy getting. Lots of great play features and display options, combined with a genuinely fun build.

LEGO’s Floating Mountains: Site 26 & RDA Samson set is available right now (along with other Avatar themed playsets) directly through LEGO, or other online retailers.
