I am amazed that Entertainment Earth continues to have daily deals. Today’s is for a set of two figures from NECA’s Lone Ranger series for %25.20 (that’s 30%off) – and of course those two figures are of Tonto and the Lone Ranger. The second wave features a bird cage accessory for Tonto, and an unmasked head sculpt for the Lone Ranger.
What’s more amazing is that the pairing of Gore Verbinki and Johnny Depp produced such a dud. I suppose their collaboration on Pirates of the Caribbean declined throughout the series, but they had returned to form with Rango. But I guess when you make a Tonto movie and call it the Lone Ranger, it’s bound to disappoint a few people.

Not sure how long this is going to last, but right now LEGO sets are BOGO50 – buy one, get one for half price at ToysRUs.com. This covers almost every set, including those in Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, the Hobbit, Marvel, DC, Lone Ranger, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and more – even their girlie Lego Friends sets if pastels are your thing.
There’s a handful of sets that are already deeply discounted so those won’t count, but there’s still big sets like the Millennium Falcon and Jabba’s Palace that you could combine for some pretty big savings. I’m not sure if these qualify for the free shipping for purchases over $79 deal, but if they do, that wouldn’t be that hard to do with LEGO. 😀 Happy shopping!
Hot Toys teased their Tonto figure from The Lone Ranger leading up to SDCC, where we saw Tonto at the Sideshow Toys booth. It took a few weeks, but finally, here’s the official press release with some pretty pictures.
The Lone Ranger is one of this summer’s tentpole movies that I still have not seen. Judging from the box office results, sounds like it had some trouble getting a broad audience outside the people that love Johnny Depp’s eclectic performances. Will we get an Armie Hammer Lone Ranger from Hot Toys? I can’t imagine Tonto without him, but I also never thought I’d see a Lone Ranger movie where the sidekick gets top billing. Come to think of it, I guess I haven’t… yet.
Tonto is available for pre-order from Sideshow Collectibles and BigBadToyStore for $204.99. He’s due out in 1st quarter 2014.

With its expansion into quarter scale figures, NECA has been able to add Marvel and DC movies (even the Batman classic TV series spawned a movie) to its impressive array of licensed action figures. They continue to own classic movies from my youth in the 7-inch scale, expanding its Alien, Predator, Robocop, Gremlins, and more. With the Lone Ranger, Kick-Ass, and Pacific Rim, they’re getting their piece of modern hits too.
On the video game front, they seem focused on Valve games. It’s interesting that they’re Valve split the figure license between NECA and 3A Toys – NECA has 7-inch scale and 3A has 12-inch. The Portal 2 robots are an example of figures that will be available in both scales. With Team Fortress 2, NECA has a broader assortment.
Fans of Playmates’ World of Springfield figures get a new assortment of Simpsons, as NECA has partnered with Fox on a line of 25 of the most iconic guest stars to celebrate 25 seasons of the long-running series. [/Ron]
