Guest Review By Kevin
Even though critics and the general public alike critically panned The Lone Ranger, it didn’t stop Hot Toys from cashing in on this failed franchise. Announced about a year ago, Tonto didn’t really have the fanfare that Hot Toys was hoping for and most likely banking on the success of another Johnny Depp figure.
Accessories wise he comes with the usual sets of hands, one satchel, one revolver, a knife with sheath, two different tomahawks, and two pocket watches; one that is open and the other closed. The watches are a nice touch and have a metal chain, which gives a nice weight when posing this prop with the figure.
Two things with this figure that are troublesome are the hair and the pouch. The hair isn’t so bad and is actually quite nice. The only problem is after sometime the hair starts to go in all directions, and it can be hard to keep it in line.
On the other hand, the pouch is just another troublesome piece to put on. The details on the pouch are nice, but it is just really hard to get that on to the belt of Tonto. I’m not really sure how to put it on without stretching the belt, which you don’t want to do for obvious reasons. I just stuffed one of the knots into the belt and just let it hang.
