SDCC 2016 was good for Star Wars Black Series collectors. We got an OT Ben Kenobi, a first look Jyn Erso from Rogue One, and a beefed up Kylo Ren set. Kylo comes with an unmasked head, a first order banner, a full ligtsaber and hilt-only version like the K-Mart set, and a melted Darth Vader helmet. Basically a total Black Series Kylo Ren package. Let’s take a look after the break!
Star Wars Black Series Kylo Ren SDCC Exclusive
Dig it. New head is solid for Black Series standards. Paint on the helmet is also sharp, not sloppy like some early mass release runs. The First Order banner is an awesome dio piece that would be great to have on it’s own at some point, just one doesn’t do it justice. Using it as a base or background fodder is a perfect way to fill out a shelf. The Vader helmet is what it is, well done and a perfect bonus add-on. As for the figure, it’s basically the same as the one that’s been out, but the molded plastic cape-drape is new. It now features a raised textured pattern where the original was a bit smoother. Overall this is a nice upgrade to the original figure and the definitive Kylo to date for Black Series.
