Before The Force Awakens hit the movie screens, the character that people were debating and looking forward to seeing the most was surely Kylo Ren. After seeing the film and having the identity of this masked villain revealed with surprising results, he is still one of the most talked about characters and sought after figures. This is why toys like the 2016 buildable LEGO model will be such a hit.
Build this new LEGO Stars Wars Kylo Ren into a dangerous opponent and see the force of his light-saber.
Ask kids and fans what they love about Kylo Ren and you will probably receive a lot of different responses. For some it is the mask that not only pays tribute to Darth Vader with the menacing voice modulation, but also hides the real Kylo Ren beneath. Others like the way that the style of Vader has been updated with this new screen presence – a deliberate and tasteful homage – and the work that has gone into creating the new cloak. For some it is all about the fiery lightsaber – unique against all the others – and the way it symbolizes the rage and instability of the character. When creating a realistic, appealing LEGO build able Kylo Ren model, the designers had to be sure that they captured all of these elements correctly to bring the character to life and make him stand out on the shelf. Kylo Ren grabs your attention from the moment he steps on screen and the great news for collectors and fans is that this model reflects that.
The costume is one of the main selling points here because it uses real cloth to create the robe and cape and the head has been molded so that Ren has that distinctive mask. This is not meant to be a static figure to admire, however, as this model is also designed to fight. Like all of the build-able figures in this 2016 Star Wars range, this model is highly posable so that he can be manipulated into different poses and actions depending on what the player wants him to do. Not only does this model have that eerie light-saber that can cause so much damage to the Resistance, it can wield it with surprising force due to the new “wheel-activated arm-swinging battle function”. The combination of all these vital elements means that this LEGO Star Wars Kylo Ren should be the most dominant figure on the shelf and the ideal opponent for the figures from the Resistance.
