Funko Announces 'Avatar: Cabbage Man & Cart Pop!' Figure NYCC 2019 Exclusive

Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of the most fondly looked on series to ever air on Nickelodeon, and continues to be held in high regard by animation fans everywhere. Often considered one of the best television shows ever, the series is usually remembered for its balance of action and humor. Dedicated fans were rewarded for sticking with the series with a selection of running bits, and the standout was probably the cabbage merchant who ends up with a destroyed cart in the midst of some fierce battles, often ending up screaming "My Cabbages!" Avatar: Cabbage Man & Cart Pop! follows the launch of Funko's Avatar: The Last Airbender Pop! Animation figure range earlier this year.


His getting caught up in Aang and the others' shenanigans helped cement him as an icon among fans, and now they can pay tribute to him with a new Funko Pop that includes the Cabbage Man and his trusty cart. But unfortunately, it's going to be exclusive to fans attending New York Comic Con 2019.

From the provided image, the figure has the distinctive look of its cartoon counterpart and holds a cabbage close to his side to prevent it from harm. Sadly, he has no idea what's in store for his beloved cabbage cart.


As it's an NYCC 2019 exclusive, quantities are limited and will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. Attending the convention does not guarantee availability.

While pricing has not been listed, this figure may cost a little more than the usual price tag for Funko Pops! considering the Cabbage Man set comes with a yet-to-be-broken cart of cabbages.

It's unclear if the Cabbage Man & Cart Pop! will be sold outside of New York Comic Con 2019, so be sure to pick up the exclusive figure while you can.

Avatar: The Last Airbender became famous for its heavy anime influences and well-crafted narrative, but ask a fan about their favorite moments and chances are they'll respond with "My cabbages!" This hilarious extra made a name for himself among fans, and they were always keeping an eye out for when he'd pop up next. But now fans can have a cabbage cart of their own to tip over!


Because of humorous bits like this among many other great qualities, the original Avatar series has since spawned comics, video games, a sequel in The Legend of Korra, and even a live-action film directed by M. Night Shyamalan. Nickelodeon and Netflix are also currently in the midst of producing a live-action adaptation of the beloved animated series.

Although details of the cast, crew, and the official release date are currently being kept under wraps, original creators Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko have been confirmed to serve as executive producers and showrunners with a scheduled production start sometime this year.

Avatar: The Last Airbender was originally created by Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko for Nickelodeon in 2005. The series is set in world people can manipulate the elements of Earth, Water, Fire, and Air, and they lived peacefully in different regions until one of the nations started a world war. One master who can manipulate all four elements, dubbed the "Avatar," had been able to prevent this war, but disappeared soon after. 100 years later, a new Avatar named Aang awakens and sets out on a journey to master all the elements in order to bring peace to the land once more by defeating Fire Lord Ozai and ending the destructive war with the Fire Nation.

The series aired for 61 episodes over three seasons originally on Nickelodeon, where it began in February 2005 and concluded in July 2008. The series was nominated for—and won—Annie Awards, Genesis Awards, a Primetime Emmy Award, and a Peabody Award.

Be sure to add the NYCC exclusive Avatar: Cabbage Man & Cart Pop! to your collection this fall!
