Yeah it does seem so specific...Can't wait to see it, but can't say I want it.
I understand that with Han, Chewy, Luke and Ben on the way it almost makes sense, but it's just such an odd choice for such a massive fabrication and tooling investment.
All of their batmobiles, which are probably most comparable, were packed whole in much larger boxes than you'd anticipate.It won't be overly expensive... Reasons...
1. HT learnt a hard lesson with their 1/12 Bat.
2. The assembly and paint ap will be basic with no mega attention hand craftmanship like on the faces of their human figures.
3. There's likely no die-cast.
4. It will be packed in pieces in the smallest box possible. I was amazed how HT packed things within things to compact the box of their Batman Armory.
5. The actual Falcon cockpit was a bit tight. I think the circumference of a 1/6 cockpit will be around 50cm.
My view, this will be $550 to $800 tops if they go all out with sounds and lighting effects.
Those were solid pieces, not like the armory which was released afterwards and in pieces.All of their batmobiles, which are probably most comparable, were packed whole in much larger boxes than you'd anticipate.
I have the Batman Armory. While it's a great peice, the armoury itself is barely dry brushed with most of it left unpainted in the colour of it's bare plastic.Also, it wouldn't be Hot Toys if there wasn't attention to detail in every respect. I can't think of a single example where they went with less in paint, sculpting, or features. All of the vehicles that I've personally seen have been impeccable in their attention to detail.
