Today we are starting our looks at recent Star Wars Black Series releases. These started trickling out during Force Friday and have been filling back in at retail and online ever since. First up is our set for Star Wars The Last Jedi Kylo Ren. This is his updated look, unmasked, with a new removable hood-less cape. He comes with a fired up saber and alternate hilt. We’ve done up over 40 shots to show what he can do which you can check after the break courtesy of Dorkside Toys!
Well done figure. The face sculpt is a bit more on point than the previous unmasked one. Scar came out crisp. No significant paint errors. I really dig the plastic cape. I’m ok with soft goods sprinkled in, but they can’t get large pieces of clothing right. I think it should stay limited like Darth Revan and Ashoka, or do what they did here and roll plastic style. It does limit poseability a bit, but for the most part with the cape on he’s just gonna be rocking a gangster stance anyway. Articulation and range of movement is otherwise standard for Black Series. It’s a welcome addition to the line up.
