Avatar: The Way of Water - NEYTIRI!

Avatar: The Way of Water - Neytiri (Standard Version) - McFarlane Toys 2022

It's been thirteen long years since the first Avatar movie hit theatres and I am very excited to see the long-awaited sequel. When it comes to movies, I love being fully emersed in a new setting, where the place is almost a character in itself. Avatar gave me that in spades. The world of Pandora, the Na'Vi people, and all the flora and fauna create a magical moviegoing experience and I can't wait to experience it again. Back in 2009 I went all-in on the toylines from Mattel. I bought every character and every giant creature. At one point my dining room table was completely covered in banshees. But I admit I always thought the quality of those toys was lacking. They had announced the sequels right away so I was already fantasizing about which company would get the license and give us the improved toys I desired (my money was on NECA). But who would have guessed McFarlane would come to the rescue and give me the Neytiri I always wanted. She is wonderful. Let's check out Neytiri below!

Neytiri comes with a bow (with an arrow sculpted to its side), two sets of hands, a figure stand, and a dagger (that can fit in the small sheath at her waist).

Neytiri is covered with a pattern of black-light-responsive dots to represent the bioluminescence seen in the film.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Neytiri with her Metakayina Reef version.

And here they are with the 2009 Movie Masters figure from Mattel.

  1. I had to do a Youtube video on this figure... ...I kept watching OTHER reviewers who didn't definitively answer if her clothes could come decently off or not. Had to get it myself to answer it.
