LEGO Avatar the Last Airbender
Air Fortress Temple
(Set 3828)
By Lando Da Pimp

Click for largerI admit that I am out of my element with this set. I don’t know anything about Avatar. I am feeling my age in a similar way when I reviewed Bionicle.

Before I review the LEGO set 3828 I needed to look up the show Avatar to provide some background information on the show. As to not seem like an expert here is what Avatar is about according to Wikipedia:

"Avatar: The Last Airbender (known as Avatar: The Legend of Aang in several countries) is an American animated television series airing on Nickelodeon. Set in a fantasy, Asian-influenced world of martial arts and elemental magic, the series follows the adventures of Aang, the successor to a long line of Avatars, and his friends Katara, Sokka and later Toph, and their two animal companions Appa and Momo in their quest to save the world from the merciless Fire Nation, while avoiding capture from pursuers including Prince Zuko, Princess Azula and other hunters from the Fire Nation."

Set 3828 is based on the Air Temple, the boy hood home of the current Avatar, Aang. Based on pictures that I have seen of the temple, the set is not to scale but fits the overall look of the show. The 400-piece temple has a few cool features. A locking gate is the entrance to the temple. While there isn’t an interior to the building it is does have a small area to either side. On one side is a collection of weapons with a catapult on the other. A collection of discs use primarily in the Exo-Force sets are stored inside.

The set also includes 4 mini-figures of the characters Aang and Sokka, along with two fire nation soldiers, one of them a being a Firebender.

Overall
While the set is not going to encourage me to watch the show it is a simple fun set to build. I would be interested in seeing a larger interior and see what the Air Temple looks like. Looking at captures from the show it appears that it is built upon a mountain peek. It would be interesting to see this feature into the design of the set. Fans of the show can judge how the set fits in with the show better than I can but, I can recommend you check out this temple that has an interesting construction.

Visit the official Star Wars site on LEGO.com and purchase this set while you are there. We also recommend check out our complete LEGO coverage and our other Star Wars articles.
