Female figures

Well, I just asked my almost 8 year old nephew about this. He watches the show and knows the characters. I asked him if he'd be interested in figures of the females from Avatar and he said basically "It doesn't matter. As long they have cool powers!"

Hey, new to this so bear

Hey, new to this so bear with me... I am a Mom that has been confused as to why there are no female characters marketed?! My baby is a 6 year old boy who has been bustin my chops to get him the "girls" but I cannot get him something they don't make! Is it really true that they are finally releasing Kitara??!! what about Azula & Toff is it [the blind earthbending master]??!! I don't understand what they are thinking?! I know PLENTY of little girls who love the show & feel slighted & Actually my son is more pissed than they are! He's the type of kid that wants the WHOLE series... no matter if its a boy/girl, animal character... whatever!! They really are underestimating our children!! that just because it may be more popular with boys that the female ones wouldn't sell... just STUPID!! & also what about Uncle Iroh?? he's been a main character from the beginning!! They make King Bumi & Jet but not him??!! I don't know who is marketing this stuff but they definitely need to get a clue!!

I've been telling Mattel the

I've been telling Mattel the same thing. Unfortunately lines are planned out long before they talk to me. It was confirmed that there will be Kitara among the new 18 figures, but no word on Toph or Azula. I'm sure we will see an Iroh figure. Best we as fans can do is make our opinions heard to mattel. You can send an email to Mattel Customer service to voice your concern but other than that, vote with your wallet. If Kitara sells well maybe they will see the error of their ways.

I'm new to your site as

I'm new to your site as well. :)

My sons are 9 and 4 and love the show. I know my 9 year old is very excited about a Kitara figure. Although he would LOVE to see a Toph! :)

My biggest problem is that these figures are hard to find.. Not ALL of them, but some. Right now, I can't find anything in the stores. Even online they're few and far between.... Some sites have some of the 6.99 figures listed for 20-30.00! Since we're new to the whole "Action Figure" thing, are there any good places for purchasing the figures?? I have managed to get my hands on just about all of them. I think he's missing like 3 of the figures now...
