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.
