More than a decade since “Avatar” introduced the world to the bedazzling world of the Pandora universe, director James Cameron is returning to the primeval forests and floating-mountain landscapes in “The Way of Water,” out Dec. 16. As adults and kids alike head to the theaters this weekend (the film is projected to dominate the box office with a towering $150 million opening), dozens of brands are taking advantage of the anticipation by releasing merch and products inspired by the Na’vi.
From a $183-value cosmetics set inspired by the vibrant hues of Pandora to a 528-piece Lego set depicting a Metkayina Reef Home, here is the absolute best (and over-the-top) “Avatar” merch to buy ahead of the anticipated sequel.
Nyx Cosmetics Avatar: The Way of Water Collection Set
Inspired by the world and characters of Pandora, this brand new collection from Nyx Cosmetics (which is also 100% vegan and recyclable) features products in vibrant hues that are only found in the lush jungles of the James Cameron-created universe. The set, which is worth $183, includes the Pandoran Paradise Palette, the Color Palette, the Na’vi Paint, the Biolume Highlighter Sticks, the Bioluminescent Lip Glosses, the Paper Lipsticks and the Metkayina Mist.
Metkayina Reef Home Lego Set
Lego never disappoints ahead of an anticipated blockbuster. So it makes sense that in celebration of “The Way of Water” comes a new 528-piece set that depicts a Metkayina clan dwelling, nestled into the alien mangrove-like trees of Pandora.
