OMG! Up to now, all we've seen from James Cameron's upcoming 3-D epic Avatar is a photograph of Cameron on set with star Sam Worthington, and another solo shot of Cameron, so these peaks at concept art for the film, courtesy of the blog MarketSaw, make me very happy because they look so cool.

The blog says that the images are from The Art of Avatar: James Cameron's Epic Adventure, a book that's due to be published in November. As such, they don't represent the final product, of course, but they give a good idea of the look and style that Cameron has in mind for the movie. (That's a presumption on my part.) To quote from a previous post, Avatar "tells of a paraplegic ex-marine war veteran (Worthington) who's sent to establish a human settlement on the distant planet of Pandora, but winds up in a battle against the planet's indigenous population, the Na'vi." The image above shows a pretty wild-looking helicopter pitted against winged creatures; the other pic depicts the power suit that allows humans to explore Pandora.

If you'd like to know more about how the power suit and helicopter fit into the overall scheme of things, head on over to MarketSaw. They have the full-size, full-resolution pics. Right now, I can't wait to see some images in action. When do we get a teaser?
