Even though James Cameron's futuristic sci-fi blockbuster utilizes the latest in CGI special effects, the movie still features many detailed props and intricate costume accessories.

This selection of original items from the film were on display at the Cinerama Dome in Hollywood on December 28, 2009.

These massive boots and socks worn by Jake's 'Avatar' when he leaves the human base at the start of the movie help to illustrate how tall and proportionately bigger than humans the aliens are.

    I haven't any of them myself, but they look pretty accurate replicas in the pictures on NC site.

  18. That's helpful, thanks for sharing, I know a lot of people were wondering where to buy replicas from :)

  19. where did the big knife come from at the end of the movie?

  20. I'm trying to figure out what brand of permanent match they were using in the scene where jake lights the torch/spear and starts fighting the dogs.

  21. Ok I hope this comment actually goes through this time, it keeps doing something odd. Does anyone know what brand of permanent match jake is using in the scene when he lights the torch/spear and starts fighting the dogs? They aren't normal matches, it's one of those metal reusable ones and I've been trying to find out since the movie was released.

  22. I'm sorry I don't know what matches he uses when fighting the Viperwolves, but maybe someone else will!

  23. I have a dresser that my boss gave to me. He said it was from the set of Avatar. It is very unique and some of the paint chipped away reveals that is is indeed a plastic mold and not made of wood. How can I find out if it is from the movie and what it's worth?
