We can certainly thank LEGO Con 2022 for putting images to the sets they’ve been teasing for some time. Many of the reveals we’ve covered just now are stuff that LEGO’s done before. This one’s all-new, in terms of licensed IPs getting the LEGO treatment. To think that the rumored “coconut” project would be tie-in sets for James Cameron’s “Avatar” franchise. The sequel to the 2009 film, subtitled “The Way of Water”, is coming this Holiday season. It’s fair perhaps that the inaugural LEGO Avatar set come out months before that, according to Stone Wars.
Toruk Makto & Tree of Souls (75574) is a visually impressive location set from 20th Century Studios’ “Avatar” movie series. It depicts a key location on the alien planet Pandora, the Tree of Souls revered by the humanoid Na’vi. Also present are Sully, the human in a Na’vi avatar body, his love interest Neytiri and Sully’s Toruk flying-beast. The set offers a nice contrast between the decorative Tree of Souls and the poseable Toruk mount. Toruk Makto & Tree of Souls (75574) will officially launch October 1, although collectors can preorder it now at LEGO.com. That said, here’s the details from the official product listing:
