Thomas checks out the all-new Kylo Ren action figure from Tamashii Nations’ The Rise Of Skywalker line
Following the release of Rey & D-0 and the First Order Sith Trooper, the final figure from Tamshii Nations’ S.H Figuarts Star Wars The Rise Of Skywalker line-up has finally arrived. Supreme Leader Kylo Ren!
This figure comes with interchangeable hands, a lightsaber blade, 2 lightsaber hilts (one to hold in his hands and one to attach on his belt), a cape, a maskless Kylo Ren headsculpt, and his iconic reforged mask.
The body is basically a repaint from The Last Jedi figure, this one is just darker. The mask has better paint apps and has been revised to be brought in-line with his look in The Rise Of Skywalker. Another thing Tamashii improved on is Kylo’s lightsaber, it’s not as big as the previous release and thus the figure can hold it better in the hands. Great paint apps on the lightsabers!
The big addition in this figure is the cape and hood. It’s a soft goods cape, it’s not bad but not as good as what MAFEX produces with soft goods. You can see Figuarts still doesn’t master the art of soft goods but considering how is this one, they’re on the right path. The wires put inside the cape are too big so the cape is bit stiff.
Another addition to this figure compared to the previous release is a new headsculpt. The hair is not the same as The Last Jedi release as in The Rise Of Skywalker, Kylo’s hair is different. It’s a new headsculpt and it’s a great one!
This figure has 23 points of articulation.
A great figure, the new additions and improvements make it a must-buy!
