LEGO Avatar: The Last Airbender Building Set List

Avatar: The Last Airbender is the smallest theme to be released by LEGO. It was a test theme released alongside SpongeBob SquarePants, in the Summer of 2006. These two Nickelodeon cartoon shows were both being considered for a full release. Fans would decide which line they liked better, and LEGO would create more building sets under a single Nickelodeon theme. SpongeBob SquarePants won the competition. SpongeBob was not only a hugely successful show, but Avatar: The Last Airbender was scheduled to end the following year.

The only two building sets released for Avatar: The Last Airbender would be based on Book 1. These two sets just touched the surface of this mythical world where a select few could manipulate the elements through a psychokinetic martial arts called bending. Many of the famous characters, locations and vehicles that Aang and and his friends encounter, while they attempt to bring peace to the lands, never make an appearance in this LEGO theme. Since these sets were based on the first season, Toph had not been seen and Zuko was focused on capturing the last surviving airbender, Aang.

Air Temple

Item #: 3828

Year: 2006

Ages: 7-12

Pieces: 400

Minifigures:

  1. Aang

  2. Momo The Flying Lemur

  3. Sokka

  4. Firebender

  5. Fire Nation Soldier

This set was inspired by the season 1, episode 17 story called The Northern Air Temple. This adventure has Fire Nation War Minister Qui sending his soldiers to destroy the Air Temple. The set did not include the Fire Nation war balloon, which was used in the attack.

Since an entire Temple would require an enormous amount of LEGO pieces, the model focused on the area of the Air Temple that Aang resided. The front has a large door with a decorative tower on top. Three large discs on the gate allow the doors to be opened or closed with marvelous flair. The rear of the model is opened to show the rooms and contents inside. The upper floor in the top spire is an empty room. The second floor in the tower has a trapdoor. When opened, the Minifigure drops down to the entrance by the main gate. The lower level contains a weapons rack and supplies to defend the temple. Aang was given a catapult that launches transparent green cylinders, instead of the viscous slime bombs used in the show. The catapult is fired by pushing down on the lever at its side. The set also comes with a large version of Aang’s glider.

The Fire Nation Tank model for this set is smaller than the one used in the show. However, LEGO made sure to pack it with interactive features. A detachable top section was armed with a mechanism that can fling disks. When the top is removed, a minifigure can sit in the lower section where there is a small engine. The tank is also equipped with a hook to pry open the doors or rip things off.

Fire Nation Ship

Item #: 3829

Ages: 8-12

Year: 2006

Pieces: 722

Minifigures:

  1. Aang

  2. Katara

  3. Prince Zuko

  4. Firebender

  5. Fire Nation Soldier

This is a model of Prince Zuko’s personal ship. The boat was not modified much beyond the standard Fire Nation Ship. This older warship was smaller and lighter than most of the Fire Nation battleships in service, but was extremely fast, making it ideal for the prince traveling the world and chasing after the last airbender. The ship played a significant role in the series, until it was destroyed late into the first season.

The boat may not have been heavily modified, but the model had lots of fun interactive features. A lever on the side of the catapult lets you launch a red 2X2 LEGO brick. The brick was used to simulate the fireball that would have been used in the cartoon. A prison cell is built into the hull and the roof is flush with the deck. The cell can be removed to place prisoners inside, but it is not visible like many of the promotional pictures and box suggest. There is a large tower near the middle of the ship and a tall smokestack. By removing this huge structure, it opens up on a hinged brick and gives access to the four levels inside. The top floor of the tower is the bridge and where the steering wheel is located. The other floors are decorated with details like the Fire Nation Flag, but are rather empty and give the builder options in how they will be utilized. The room below the chimney is the boiler room. It contains a fireplace and coals to power the ship. If the Fire Nation Ship is too large to enter an area, the rear hull has a small steam-powered riverboat docked inside.

      The colors of the temple remind me a lot of the colors used in the Harry Potter themes. Love the ship.
