A Neytiri Playboy Centerfold would have been a good idea.
Fun fact for your trivia nights: Cameron used to work as a prop builder and got his big break into Hollywood by creating a spaceship with boobs (for the movie: 'Battle Beyond The Stars')!
B-movie legend Roger Corman was so impressed with Cameron’s design for a “spaceship with tits” that he asked him to direct Piranha II: The Spawning.
Dream big, kids!
