Disney has created a very cool souvenir opportunity for visitors to Pandora – The World of Avatar. We have talked about owning your own banshee but now guests can take things a step further by creating their own avatar to take home too!
Inside Windtraders, the Pandoran gift shop, an Alpha Centauri Expedition Scan Technician will use a state-of-the-art facial capture scanner to enter your information into their Hybrid Digitizing System. After your image has been scanned you will then have the opportunity to choose your avatar’s body style from four different choices in either youth or adult sizes.
Next you choose eye color, hairstyle, and facial striping pattern. During this process your technician is telling you interesting facts about the Na’vi. One of these interesting tidbits is that your avatar will always have dark hair because the Na’vi gene for dark hair is dominant.
After you finish customizing you will then received an ACE identification tag. This tag is a keepsake that is used at the ACE Avatar Maker Fabricator to receive your completed action figure. There is usually about a 30 minute to an hour wait before being able to use your tag (depending on how busy the shop is).
When asked about these unique mementos, Cody Hampton, merchandise product developer explained, “We were inspired by the breathtaking Avatar Flight of Passage attraction when designing ACE Avatar Maker. During the attraction, guests are connected with an avatar for first-person flight on a banshee over the moon’s incredible landscape. We thought guests would love to see what they actually look like as a human/Na’vi hybrid. Using a digital process, guests can now create and personalize their own avatar action figure.”
Accessory sets are also available for purchase inside Windtraders.
The cost is about $70 for the personalized 10″ poseable action figure. Reservations are required for this experience. They can be made inside Windtraders on a first-come, first-serve basis.
