"When I first heard of this figure,I was like meh, I'll want to see the movie first to get a feeling for Kylo Ren's character. Boy did he deliver! Star Wars has given us a truly developed, flawed, very human villain. I see a lot of my self in that character, do to his personality. As a sufferer of borderline personality disorder, I understand how easily emotions can shift in a millisecond. Honestly, Kylo is a better character than Vader, the Emperor,and Darth Maul. All that being said, this figure let me down a little. I'll start with the aesthetic problems. #1 the fabrics. Lego should have incorporated his true cape. They just threw in vader's cape and called it a day. In the film it's more like a sash than a true cape. I ended up putting the cape on Luke, raising my opinion of that figure by a lot. Along with the cape, the bunched up cloth around Kylo's neck should have been included. The Skirt around Kylo's waist in the film is missing in the figure. The one they included only covers the front of his legs. and the most important fabric piece that's missing is of course. His hood. He needs his hood. #2 The thigh pieces. The thigh pieces for some reason are grey when they should have been black. Aesthetically, it's rather unpleasant. If the skirt had been included it wouldn't have been a problem. Those were my only real problems with the figure. I really like the 10 inch height of the figure Honestly I thought the action feature would in interfere with the articulation and would be a huge problem for me. But I was wrong. It's a fun feature. The joint is tight, so the articulation is spared any hindrance. Congrats, it's really awesome. You guys did a good job. Other toy companies should take some pointers from Lego.I'm a pose and display kind of guy, so I was not disappointed. Honestly the only things bothering me are the fabrics. If you guys were to rerelease this figure fully properly clothed. I could see this being a $45-$50 figure and I'd preorder it immediately. And I think you could also do the same with the Vader figure. Aesthetics are important and I think you guys could draw even more adult collectors like me, if you would incorporate them a bit better. Thank you."

Those thighs stick out like a sore thumb and clash with the rest of the figure
