The force is strong with these TFA Black Series exclusives. K-Mart gets in on the action with their slight redeco of Kylo Ren, featuring a new molded base (unrelated to the Starkiller Base / Compound it comes from), a properly done lightsaber with hilt guard extensions, and an extra not activated hilt. To cap off the differences, Kylo gets a some white dusting on his cloak near the feet to mimic his appearance on the snowy planet seen in the trailers. Let’s take a look at over 30 shots and some additional thoughts after the break!
K-Mart exclusive Starkiller Base Kylo Ren The Force Awakens Star Wars Black Series Gallery
Overall solid sculpt
Lightsaber is better than first release
Base is cool
Softgood hood on this and original stink, never lays right.
Overall this is one of my favorites from the TFA Black line. I like the softgood cloak, but the hood just winds up staying erect like a puffy kids snowcoat from 1979. The new lightsaber is great, the way it should have been done originally. The base is well molded and painted, a welcome addition to the display area. The white dusting is also well done, though I am less concerned with that, it could be there or not. Bottom line, if you missed the first one, or just want to hoard Kylos – worth a pick up!
