Here's the question: will this figure make it to production?
Hot Toys has shown completed figures in the past that have never been produced because the license that they are based on didn't turn out to be strong enough to support the figures. With the The Lone Ranger's incredibly poor performance, I have to question if it jeopardizes this figure's release.
Depp does have strong international appeal, so that gives Tonto a better chance of making it to market, but as far as a Long Ranger figure? Well, that I'd be pretty surprised to see.
This figure, like the other teaser images Hot Toys has been doing, will be on display at Comic-Con next week, so expect to see the full reveal then.
