The Perfect Villain?
" I cant tell you whether or not Kylo Ren is the perfect villain, but the Lego model of him is fantastic. The head piece is beautifully molded and looks fantastic. The torso piece is the standard for the star wars line but the printing is appropriate. The cloth pieces are very good. The cape extends Kylo's shoulders in a good way, unlike Obi Wan's which looks goofy. The skirt piece also looks good and naturally falls into a good shape. I would highly recommend adding a piece of black fabric and making a hood, he looks absolutely fantastic with a hood. This can be seen as something Lego should have included, but he still looks good without it.
As for play value, the action feature is well built. There is enough friction in the arm to hold any pose that you put his arm in. The lightsaber looks soo much better in this larger size than in the minifigure version. Overall he is a very fun character and very easy to pose and play with.
I included a picture of my Kylo Ren with a very simple and basic hood that I made for him from some scrap black fabric I had laying around. "

Looks amazing, but.....
" My very first Lego set was Lewa nuva back when I was a little kid. Because of this, I've always been a huge fan of Lewa. The new version of Lewa looks great. His color scheme is great, his mask is very unique and has a very cool design. The golden uniter mask is absolutely amazing, but....
The build of Lewa leaves a lot to be desired. His lower legs have a custom build to them which is cool, but it makes him look very short and unfinished. They do not limit his articulation though. My main issue with this set is the arms. The shoulders are mounted in a really awkward spot. They really limit his ability to turn arms forward. You have to twist the whole arm back to move it forward. This also makes a really short upper arm. His lower arm is also limited by the armor add-on which is attached by the elbow.
In conclusion, I would recommend this set to fans of Lewa who have extra parts laying around and are able to modify him so that he has normal articulation. He is still a fantastic character but again, needs some modifications in order to be really usable. "

Very Impressive
" I feel like Lego is flexing their muscles with the new star wars buildable figures. I was very happy with the way General Grevious used the ccbs system to its fullest to create such a large figure. Commander Cody had a simple build that was very traditional to the system. I expected something similar from Darth Vader, but his build was miles beyond my expectations.
His body is almost entirely a technic build. I did not expect this whatsoever. The only traditional ccbs parts are the arms and legs. What impressed me the most, and is pushing me to recommend this to any Star Wars fan, was the way everything fit together perfectly. The shoulder armor fits snugly together. The hero factory chest piece that covers the bottom half of Vader's body fits perfectly with the rest of the upper armor and also looks great towards the legs. This build was truly exciting and so much fun. "

Beyond my Expectations
" When I first saw this set, the 1st thing that I thought was "I really want those minifigs". Now that have had this set for a few weeks, I have truly enjoyed this set. The Minifigures themselves are amazing. Captain Phasma has a very nice color, although she is not chrome, silver works just fine. The print on all of them is very detailed and looks very accurate to the trailer. The mold for the helmets, especially the flame troopers feel and look great. The rebel soldiers are great to have, but they tend to be overlooked by the rest of the set.
The ship itself, however, has become my absolute favorite part of the whole. I'm a Minifig collector, but the transporter is so incredibly detailed and the features so great, that I cannot take it off of my desk. It just looks amazing. The engines are detailed, the view from the top has a beautiful angular look that reminds me almost of aircraft carriers. The figures also go well with the set. It feels like a truly complete set. "
