Is the LEGO Star Wars Kylo Ren 75117 Worth Buying?
With 86 pieces, the Kylo Ren action figure will not represent much of a challenge for experienced Lego fans when it comes to construction. Many of the pieces are new and unique to this set, but the construction itself is not difficult. That being said, it comes together incredibly well, and the wheel cog on Kylo’s back that activates his arm-swinging motion is very well put together. There is just enough resistance in Kylo’s arm that he can be posed at any stage of his swing.
One thing that is immediately striking about this figure is the level of detail and authenticity that has gone into each and every piece. In the film, Kylo Ren’s helmet and mask are battle worn with marks, dents and scratches that tell the viewer plenty about the nature of this fearsome warrior. These scratches, marks and dents are perfectly replicated here on Kylo’s helmet, adding a fantastic authenticity to the overall piece. His lightsaber is also much more detailed than the smaller Lego figurine versions, which is particularly welcome.
Overall, this is a brilliant figure both for children and collectors. The level of detail that has gone into the piece is striking throughout, from the marks on the helmet to the naturally hanging cloth that gives Kylo a menacing yet athletic shape. This is combined with an incredibly well-balanced figure that stands freely regardless of what way he is holding his lightsaber. This is of particular note for collectors who may wish to have their Kylo Ren figure on permanent display. If your child enjoyed Star Wars: The Force Awakens, they will love this set.
