When Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko created Avatar: The Last Airbender in 2005 for Nickelodeon, they felt they had created a quality show that touched on many significant issues while still entertaining audiences. They were proven right as Avatar: The Last Airbender was acclaimed by fans and critics alike.
Although the series only lasted three seasons, eighteen years later, the show is still popular with fans and collectors who enjoy obtaining figures, toys, and practically anything connected to the iconic series. It is with that in mind that Dark Horse Studios has embraced that love with many different comic titles and collectibles available in the Avatar series through their Dark Horse Direct site. But now, Dark Horse and Nickelodeon are at it once again, offering Avatar fans another opportunity to add a beautiful piece to their collection. GVN is proud to offer this exclusive look at The Samurai Appa and Ronin Momo Statue.
This special statue, available now for pre-order is detailed in the following Press Release:
