Thomas joins the First Order under the watchful eye of Hasbro’s new Supreme Leader Kylo Ren action figure
Kylo Ren is part of the Triple Force Friday wave for The Rise of Skywalker. This figure comes with a plastic cape, an interchangeable hood, a lightsaber hilt and a lightsaber. The two weapons are cast in dark grey with some red marks on it but it misses some of the other colored wires. The hilt alone can be attached to the belt.
This is basically the same sculpt as The Last Jedi figure but this time the cape has a hood and obviously, the helmet has red marks as it has been rebuilt. The sculpt is good and so are the paint apps. They have chosen a brilliant red color for the marks on the helmets and this really pops out.
Obviously, the big “let down” is no Ben Solo head sculpt. There is no doubt a second figure with a helmetless head sculpt coming next year, to make us buy the character twice, this is what had been done for this same character at the time of The Force Awakens.
This figure has 18 points of articulation.
A nice figure, this new hood on the cape and the reforged helmet makes all the difference!
