Though The Legend of Korra has come to an end, two new exclusive items will be available for purchase at San Diego Comic-Con.
First up is a pre-painted PVC figure of Republic City’s most indomitable Chief of Police, Lin Beifong. The figure is designed and created by ZWYER Industries, a company run by The Legend of Korra director Melchior Zwyer and Avatar artist Alan Wan.
The Legend of Korra co-creator Bryan Konietzko expressed his admiration for the Lin figure, which had input from many members of the crew of the Nickelodeon animated series.
“The sculpt was based on a pose drawn by Lauren Montgomery and Christie Tseng,” Konietzko writes. “I did a few rounds of notes on the sculpt, and they did a stellar job.”
Fans who can’t make it to San Diego Comic-Con can hold on to other opportunities for figures like Lin.
“Look out for more amazing stuff coming from Zwyer Industries and us in the future,” Konietzko teases.
In addition, a stunning new art piece of Konietzko’s will also be available for purchase at San Diego Comic-Con. Titled “Avatar Generations,” the sepia print juxtaposes Korra and Aang, representing their connection in the cycle of Avatars.
“Avatar Generations” will be sure to touch the hearts of fans of both Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra. The beautiful piece seems like a thank-you from Konietzko and co-creator Mike DiMartino to fans who have followed both series with passion and creativity.
“I hope it warms your hearts as so many of you have warmed mine and Mike’s!” Konietzko writes.
This will be the first year The Legend of Korra has no official panel presence at San Diego Comic-Con since 2011, when Konietzko and DiMartino promoted the show at the massive convention for the first time.
Update: A Legend of Korra panel with both Konietzko and DiMartino is scheduled for Friday of the convention. In addition, a fan panel is scheduled to take place, and between the merchandise and beautiful cosplay that always populates the convention, the world of Avatar is certain to represent proudly at SDCC.
