Avatar: The Last Airbender’s Spirit Aang Gets A Glow-In-The-Dark Funko Pop

Avatar: The Last Airbender fans can now add an Aang from the Spirit World to their Funko collections. Even better, he glows in the dark!

Aang's spirit form from Avatar: The Last Airbender gets a cool glow-in-the-dark Funko Pop in honor of Earth Day. The past year has seen Nickelodeon's beloved animated series get a surge of popularity thanks to its debut on Paramount+ and Netflix. With fans old and new flocking to the beloved animated series, Avatar became one of Netflix's biggest kids' show of 2020. This also led to Nickelodeon establishing Avatar Studios, a division dedicated to creating original content set within the Last Airbender world. The first project is expected to be an animated movie, with production kicking off later this year.

Even before Nickelodeon made an entire studio dedicated to the series, Avatar helped create all kinds of new stories. It received a sequel show, The Legend of Korra, four years after it ended its run, and there have been multiple graphic novels centered on Team Avatar's post-series adventures. Additionally, Netflix is still in the process of developing its own live-action Avatar series, though progress has been slow. Last summer, Avatar's original creators departed Netflix's project, casting some doubt on the rest of the proceedings.

Just a few weeks after Avatar received a slew of new Funko Pop figures, an exclusive Aang Pop has been released courtesy of BoxLunch. The figure depicts Aang as he is when he visits the Spirit World, meaning he's created in a blueish hue and is striking a meditative pose. What makes the figure even more special is that he glows in the dark. Check him out down below.

Aang's Spirit World adventures are a major part of the Avatar universe, so it's fitting that this form should receive a special Funko Pop figure. The most recent collection of Avatar Funko Pops included one with Aang wielding all four elements; it's safe to say he's now the character to receive the most variations when it comes to his Funkos. That's fitting since, after all, he is the titular last airbender.

Aang's story has been covered pretty thoroughly, from Avatar to the graphic novels to The Legend of Korra. Netflix's series is looking to center on Aang, but it remains to be seen whether anything from Avatar Studios will. At the very least, it seems likely that the projects will reference him in some capacity, particularly if they choose to focus on Avatars that come before or after him. In short, Aang will probably remain an important figure in the Avatar world for some time. Good thing he's such a beloved character!
