    Yes they did a life size Armored Batman and Wonder Woman (I think). Yes Baby Groot as well. And errrrrr,.... a 1:1 Man of Steel Kryptonian Key

    A big "IF" here because they have a proven history of creating one time exhibition pieces that are never released for retail sale. This is Hot Toys, their prices are always higher than anything similar, along with their quality.

    Well that seals it. Same story as the the 1:6 '66 Batmobile that was shown and never released. Not going to happen.

    I wonder whether this or the EFX version gets release first. Or if both come out at all. Or either.

    I'd bet on this one, as it doesn't seem to be a "borrowed" Prop Shop replica being passed off as a prototype. Nevermind the fact that the percentage of Hot Toys' vaporware being tiny compared to some *cough* other companies.

    I guess we'll know in a few years. It does look nice.

    Given the current market w/ a lack of quality licensed prop replicas outside the repeat vader helmets, and the ones created by Anovos, I don't think it'd be in their best interests as a business to ignore this particular piece. The fact that Prop Shop was the only ones selling these for an obscene $3k alienated a large portion of the population who genuinely seek to collect these kinds of products, so I'd be hard pressed to believe that there's not a market for this iconic prop from TFA. Prop Shop no longer exists, for quite a few reasons, but the bottom line is no other company is producing this particular piece, and for Hot Toys to simply shelve it would be a stupid move on their part.

    If HT does not have the license for TFA prop replica,I sure hope they could get a limited region prop replica licensing deal and release this. Maybe say for just HK and China markets. Someone is bound to do parallel import on these for the rest of the world.

    It's been a long time since i've seen anything new from Hot Toys, so it's an interesting developement in their licence. Looking forward to seeing what else the come up with. I'm always interested in how this will compare to the Prop Store version.

    The EFX version that they showed at SDCC 2017 was from the Prop Store digital assets, so essentially Disney is licensing them all from the exact same source. Just the particulars of the 3D printing and finish will be what sets them apart. Perhaps EFX and Hot Toys are sharing the license in the same way that Hasbro did with Sideshow for 1:6. Then Sideshow did with Hot Toys.
