::Team Jasper:: Last Airbender Action Figures include Jackson Rathbone! (Sort of)

Nickelodeon Consumer Products debuted the upcoming line of toys based on "The Last Airbender" today, including various waves of 3 3/4-inch action figures, as well as larger, action-enabled figures, costumes and other props based on Shyamalan's adaptation of the hit anime/manga series.
Among the toys featured in the line were (of course) figures based on the film's hero, Aang (played by Noah Ringer), the villainous Prince Zuko (played by "Slumdog Millionaire" actor Dev Patel). Toys based on Sokka (played by "Twilight" alum Jackson Rathbone) and Katara (Nicola Peltz) also factored into several waves of figures.
Oh, and did we mention the fully ride-able Appa the Sky Bison?
"We worked very closely with M. Night, the rest of the Paramount team and our in-house design team, along with our partner Spin-Master, to come up with the right assortment, the right size for these action figures and make sure we we had representation of all the nations within the 'Arbender' series," said Nickelodeon's Lourdes Arocho.
For those looking to mark their calendars, Wave 1 of "The Last Airbender" toys arrives June 1, Wave 2 will hit shelves closer to the movie's release date in July, and the final batch will arrive closer to the holidays.
