The set contains a new version of Jake Sully in his Avatar body, two Viperwolves, a couple of accessories for Jake to use and a Level 3 iTag base plate.

Engineernerd’s 5 Favorite Android Apps

This figure is the Avatar Norm Spellman, also from the second wave of 1:18 scale (3.75 inch) Mattel figures devoted to the Avatar movie directed by James Cameron. In the movie Norm arrives on Pandora alongside Jake Sully, although unlike Jake, Norm has spent most of his adult life preparing for this off-world assignment as a member of Dr. Augustine’s Avatar Research Program.
