The Hot Toys Kylo Ren Sixth Scale Figure: Collectible Destiny FulfilledMarch 6, 2016
The Hot Toys Kylo Ren Sixth Scale Figure is a masterfully rendered depiction of Star Wars: The Force Awakens troubled, force-wielding baddie thats likely to exert an irresistible force over Star Wars collectors. Joining Hot Toys sixth scale line-up of Force Awakens figures that includes Rey, Finn, Captain Phasma, and a variety of First Order Stormtroopers, the Kylo Ren figure stands as a clear must-have while emerging as the definitive version of the Dark Side warrior.
Hot Toys has earned a reputation for making movie-accurate collectibles that deliver a jaw-dropping level of fidelity and the Kylo Ren Sixth Scale Figure is no exception. Out of the box, the degree of detail is immediately impressive. The figure arrives decked out in Kylos familiar dusky garb. The force-sensitive warriors now iconic helmet has been recreated with striking accuracy complete with metal-like highlights and a weathered surface. The rest of the costume is equally noteworthy with a 3-part, multi-layered top, hooded black cloak, trousers, belt, and boots. All items feature textures and dark tones that are a close match to their on-screen appearance.
Beyond the screen-accurate getup, the Hot Toys Kylo Ren Sixth Scale Figure possesses a range of additional features that are no less remarkable. The towering 13-inch tall figure is built for optimum poseability with over 30 points of articulation. Adding to the mix of display options are 8 interchangeable hands which capture an array of gestures and enable Kylo to wield unlit and lit versions of his signature cross-guard lightsaber. While the battery-powered lightsaber doesnt really come close to capturing the jagged unstable look of Kylos weapon as it appears in The Force Awakens (or in the official marketing images), its a welcome feature nonetheless. Rounding out the package is a hexagonal figure stand emblazoned with the First Order insignia, character name, and Star Wars logo.
The Hot Toys Kylo Ren Sixth Scale Figure released in February at the manufacturers suggested retail price of $224.99 USD.
