Star Wars Exclusive Kylo Ren Elite Series Die Cast Figure Review

Star Wars Exclusive Kylo Ren Elite Series Die Cast Figure 03

Disney Store is celebrating Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens with a line of die cast figures based on the film. These figures were released back on The International Star Wars event on September 4th, which was also called Force Friday and the day that all of the new movie toys had hit. Also included in the die cast assortment from Disney are Captain Phasma, Finn, Rey & BB-8, Kylo Ren, the First Order Stormtrooper, and the First Order Flametrooper.

The individual who came to be known as Kylo Ren was born some time after the Battle of Endor. As an adult, approximately thirty years later, he had become a follower of the dark side of the Force and a member of the Knights of Ren, taking on Ren as a surname. He built his own lightsaber, a dangerous and ragged design unlike that of a typical lightsaber. He was allied with the First Order, a military junta born from the remnants of the Galactic Empire, and he worked under the organization’s leader, Snoke, a powerful figure in the dark side. Ren desired the destruction of the Resistance (an organization that opposed the First Order) and the Jedi. He engaged in a confrontation with Finn, a former First Order Stormtrooper, in a snowy forest.

Thank you to Disney and The Disney Store for providing Kylo Ren exclusive Die Cast figure to us to review.

Availability: September 2015

 

Star Wars Exclusive Kylo Ren Elite Series Die Cast Figure 23

Kylo Ren stands at 7 1/4″ tall and made with die cast, which makes the figure heavier compared to other materials such as plastic. The figure is also made with some plastic parts such as the hood, cape, and skirt. The rest of the body such as the head, torso, arms, and legs are made with die cast parts.

Kylo Ren’s outfit takes after Darth Vader’s, with an all black costume except with silver deco and details on his face. The head is protected by a hood, which is also attached to a cape running half way down his back. Sculpted over his black shirt is a black vest, with a skirt attacked to that and held together by a black belt.

The base is made of flimsy plastic and sometimes may have difficulty supporting the figure depending on the position he’s left standing. There is only one peg hole on Kylo Ren’ feet and one peg on the stand. The base does have some carvings sculpted on including the Star Wars logo.

The back of Kylo Ren’s back have holes including on the figures legs, triceps, and like other parts of his back. The good news here is that you can’t see most of the screws as the vest and skirt cover most of it.

He has a decent amount of articulation including a ball jointed head, ball-hinged shoulders, hinged elbows, swivel wrists, ball jointed hips, hinged knees, and hinged ankles.

Overall:

Kylo Ren offers a lot of value for the MSRP price of $24.99 USD. He is a nicely detailed and accessorized figure and a beautiful sculpt.

Highly Recommended.
