Hello there! Today I have Hot Toys Kylo Ren from Rise of Skywalker that I received recently from Sideshow. Not everyone is a sequel fan, but I think at the very least Kylo is a visually interesting character, especially with his helmet in the last movie. I think out of the Kylo’s, this is probably the best version. You have his masked portrait which has a light up feature that allows for steady and pulsing light. Your usual set of hands and light up lightsaber arm (thankful this stuff is going USB, hope that won’t effect things like light up helmets, etc). The costume materials vary around the figure. From the woolish like texture of his tunic, to the velvety looking cape, and the “leather” materials. The texture here and stitching brings a lot of detail. The reforged helmet is extremely nice, especially with the aforementioned light up feature. Head sculpt is also very nice, capturing Adam Driver’s appearance with the healed scar. Honestly all you need are the other two head sculpts and undamaged helmet to basically make every iteration of the character. The lightsaber is replicated nicely, with all the little external wiring details. The blade is also crafted with that unstable look which is nice. As usual, wish the LED was brighter on the lightsaber. I probably will not use it much though with the helmet turned on you kinda want to have that on as well. I know I could probably replace with the CFL but that’s not really my thing. All in all, I am glad I got this figure. I did get it on a deal so I am happy with the price point. I slept on the other Kylo figures but I am glad I have one to juxtapose with one of my Rey figures. Please enjoy! #SideshowCollectibles #HotToysCollectibles #StarWars #YesSideshow If you liked this post and may be ordering this figure, please use my referral code (if you are feeling charitable): https://www.sideshow.com/collectibles/star-wars-kylo-ren-hot-toys-905551?me=9bc2bf3t
