REVIEW: Hot Toys’ The Lone Ranger – Tonto

Hot-Toys-Lone-Ranger-Tonto-09

Background

In Disney's The Lone Ranger, Johnny Depp gives a standout performance as the peculiar Native American, Tonto. Despite their initial differences, Tonto has partnered with his 'Kemo Sabe', the Lone Ranger, and together they ride on an adventure to bring justice to the Old West.

Released theatrically in the United States on July 3rd 2013, The Lone Ranger was the big budget film the character had been waiting for since its inception in 1933. Teamed up with a number of collectibles for young and old alike, Hot Toys took a stab at producing a high-end 1/6th scale figure based on The Lone Ranger’s somewhat trusted pal Tonto.

Sideshow Collectibles has provided us with the Tonto figure for review purposes.

Kickstarter: Yoga Joes

Yoga-Joes

Dan Abramson of Brogamats.com is taking his newest project to Kickstarter in order to raise funds to produce his Yoga Joes series of inaction figures. These peaceful action figures are designed to inspire children, men, and military veterans to try yoga.

I made Yoga Joes in the spirit of getting more people to try yoga. In order to make Yoga Joes a toy that people can easily afford, I need funding to create a metal mold, so that the figures can be made through plastic injection. This is an expensive upfront cost, and so this idea needs to be supported by a community of yoga fans who believe that it deserves to exist.

The figures include: Downward-facing dog, Warrior Two, Cobra Pose, Child's Pose, Meditation Pose, and Headstand. Stretch goals include: Warrior One, Crow Pose, and Tree Pose.

A complete set of six Yoga Joes can be picked up at the $20.00 pledge level ($10.00 for active military or veterans). This project will only be funded if at least $40,000 is pledged by Friday, October 10th 2014 at 5:23PM ET.

TETRIS: Tetrimino Light Sculptures

TriForce-Tetris-Tetrimino-2

If you've ever though, "Hey! I wish I had some really big Tetris piece shaped lights", then TriForce has you covered. They've announced the officially licensed TETRIS: Tetrimino Light Sculptures. The Tetrimino is the actual name of all of those little pieces. Each Tetrimino light sculpture measures (depending on the shape) over 12 inches in length, width, or height, features working LED effects, and is water proof - I guess some folks play giant light Tetris in the shower. Each of the seven different designs is limited to 1,000 pieces worldwide. Also, each light sculpture piece runs $225.00...making this version of the game much more expensive than it was on my GameBoy.
