LEGO at SDCC’22: LEGO Avatar Sets Revealed

Twice the San Diego Comic-Con was cancelled by the juggernaut of the COVID pandemic. Thankfully, they tried to pull a “third time’s the charm” by holding a Special Edition event in late 2021. This brave gesture heralded the successful return of SDCC “as planned” in 2022, starting this July 21. A lot of upcoming major media releases can be expected to wow there until Sunday. LEGO proudly includes itself among the many multimedia presenters there. Already we have word on the highly-anticipated tie-ins to James Cameron’s “Avatar” film franchise, with the sequel coming in December.

At last, we see what LEGO’s project “Coconut” looks like. The Brick Fan has it that four sets for the LEGO Avatar line will grace San Diego Comic-Con. Fans of LEGO and James Cameron’s passion project now have their first official glimpse of the sets. Judging from the images we’re seeing now LEGO Avatar will have a great launch in October. That’s just 2 months before the Holiday premiere of the sequel subtitled “The Way of Water.” We’ll showcase each tie-in one by one here:
