Hot Toys 1/6 "Kylo Ren" in TFA

This is Hot Toys standard packaging which has an insert with image of the character.

Remove the insert is a black plastic tray which holds the figure and accessories in place.

The sculpt of the mask with helmet is movie accurate and weathering is beautifully executed here.

As Kylo's outfit comprises different types of fabric, design and texture, I believe this is what made his black outfit more interesting.

The regular lightsaber hilt can be attached onto the slot of the leather belt.

Although the boots are made from soft rubber, they still restrict the movement of the ankles.

The light of the blades is bright and it works great in the darker room.

Due to the poor quality of the batteries, they only last for a few seconds. After that, the light turns dark (at least for mine).

I switched on the lightsaber whenever I posed the figure. But the light up effect was not obvious (pictures as shown above).

Kylo's pants also restrict the articulation of his lower body.

Here to reveal the side and back of the helmet.

The figure is 13 inches tall and it looks awesome with its unique lightsaber.

Can sure tell the excellent workmanship from those fine details. Cool gimmick of the light-up saber... Sorry to hear that the light didn't last long. The sewing on the fabrics are relatively neat and weathering on mask shows more realism. I do like the figure with the head cape on.

Bro, the good thing is Hot Toys does not place the batteries in the battery compartment nowadays. This prevents the batteries leak and damage the light up features.
