The Last Airbender: Fire Nation Ships.

Postby White Nun » Sun Jun 12, 2011 1:04 am

I was recently loaned a copy of 'The Last Airbender' on DVD and while all the Tai Chi based moves on display were very enjoyable and I generally liked the movie a lot, it was the Fire nation's incredible ships that made me sit up and take notice.

Image

After doing a search for pictures with the vague notion in mind that I might build a steampunk type ship based on the Fire nation's ships I was surprised to discover that there is a Lego set for Prince Zuko's smaller Fire nation ship. :shock: :o

Image

Image

The price of these sets just about sent me for a cup of tea and a lie down, but what irritates me more than just a little is that the official Lego ship doesn't have the dark and brooding aspect of the ship in the film. The Lego ship's proportions aren't right either..........

....... but I suppose it doesn't matter that much because I wouldn't be buying the official set anyway because I'd be building my own version and revising it for naval warfare on Dinoreich. I really want to play a water navy type battle even though it would have to be gunboats rather than battleships because I don't have a spare tennis court to play on like Bonn-o-Tron.

Spoiler: the sets were made before the movie; they're not licensed stuff, and based on the animated series (sorta).

Well that explains it then. I was wondering why they were so different.

the scale is still way off though

and the animated ships were pretty imposing

but honestly, the movie was crap, watch the animated stuff if you can

In my opinion, the animated series was better when it comes to story, but the movie was good when it came to overall designs of stuff. I'd honestly suggest building your own ship, Nun.

Yes you were. Now shut the hell up. I live in denmark, steampunk lives in america (i think) and misspelled ninja lives in scotland. How can we be the same person?
