Soooo... Hot Toys has a 12" figure license now, and the first (Indy) 1/6 figure was revealed over the weekend (Friday). He comes with a big base for the golden fertility idol, desert robes, staff of ra, 2 pistols (Webley and .45), etc., etc.
What's your thoughts on this line's development? The price is going to be high I think... It has to be. Hot Toys is always an expensive brand, especially with their 1/6 stuff.
I will say though, I left this thread open-ended and not tied to a single scale... Hot Toys develope more than just 1/6, though their smaller stuff is slow going. I keep having this tiny glimmer of hope we get Snap Kits though. Their Snap Kits are much more reasonable priced by the case, even imported, and they're OUTSTANDING! Anyone who has ever bought one knows the greatness of them. Their last licensed sets were their finest work, from the film Aliens. They command a decent penny as well now. I got a case and it's a decision I only regret because I didn't buy a 2nd case to go with it.
Indiana Jones Snap Kit figures? I'd poop my pants with both glee and surprise.
Their Snap Kits weren't distributed to the U.S., you had to buy through someone willing to ship here, so they may actually be able to dance around the legal web for 3.75" figures that way, if they just simply don't distribute anywhere but Asia. I'd pay the premium for that I think because I can only fathom the quality would be worth the price.
