Hot Toys Kylo Ren 1/6 Scale Figure

  
  
“There has been an awakening. Have you felt it?” In terms of quality Star Wars figures from Hot Toys, there really has been an awakening. Straight out of the box you can see how impressive this figure is. Hot Toys have really shown their skill with this Kylo Ren figure. The quality of the clothing is so good, and everything just feels good in the hand. 

   
  
 Included in the box are three pairs of interchangeable hands, two spare pins for the wrists should the others be broken, the stand to sit this beauty on, a spare lightsaber hilt which is attached to one of the hands. The reason the hand is attached to the lightsaber is because the lightsaber lights up, and comes with the three small batteries required to power it up. You will need a small screw driver to remove a cover to insert the batteries, which can be a bit tricky. 

   
   

When changing the arm with the LED lightsaber, you need to unzip the sleeve, pull the arm out of the socket and then insert the other arm. You can remove the red lightsaber parts from the hilt of the loose lightsaber and attach them to the hilt of the one attached to the arm. The LED lightsaber arm doesn’t offer as much movement as the standard arm, as the wrist joint isn’t as flexible, so you may need to alternate between the arms when posing the figure. 

   
   

The loose lightsaber hilt can be hooked onto the belt and sits on it quite nicely. The hood can be pulled down should you decide you want to have it that way. The movemen and articulation is second to none. It really is an amazingly designed figure. The belt can’t be removed, nor can the hood, so don’t try as you may damage what is a stunning figure. I would like to take the opportunity to thank the wonderful Jennifer at Sideshow Collectibles for providing this for review, without her help none of these reviews would be possible. You can order your figure now directly via the following link:

Battle Damaged RoboCop by Hot Toys

 
“Come quietly, or there will be….trouble.” From a movie that is endlessly quotable, comes a stunning 1/6 scale figure that is equally memorable for all the right reasons. Fresh out of the box it is plain to see why Hot Toys and Sideshow Collectibles are the head honchos when it comes to making high end figures and statues. The detail is incredible, from the face sculpt which perfectly captures every nuance of Peter Weller’s likeness, to RoboCop’s battle scarred suit, it really is second to none. 

  

  

Every single blemish and burn that RoboCop suffers throughout the movie, is perfectly replicated on this figure. There were so many times that I was scanning the figure where my jaw literally dropped at the astounding level of detail that has been put into this release. Firstly you get three jars of baby food, that if you remember, RoboCop uses for target practice near the end of the movie. The leg holster works a dream and can fit the handgun no problem. Though to be specific you get two handguns, one of which goes in the leg. One is die cast and is too heavy to be held in RoboCop’s hand, so that goes in the leg holster. The other is light plastic, with a sliding barrel and removable clip that has tiny bullets in it. You also get the big rifle that RoboCop uses to dispatch ED-209 with at the end of the movie. This also has a removable clip and a sliding bolt action at the side. 

   
 

There are interchangeable hands for RoboCop too. You have a closed fist for both the left and right hand. You also have open palms for each hand with moveable fingers which can be fixed round the gun. Also for the right hand is the metal spike that RoboCop uses for the computers and also which he uses to kill Clarence. It’s covered in blood which is a nice touch. The base is very sturdy and has a nice polished sheen to it. The box is also beatifully designed, which just shows that nothing is left out in Hot Toys’ strive for perfection. 

   

This really is a work of art. Like I said everything is done to perfection and the detail is just astounding.

Have your say!

Hi guys, JM here. First of all let me take this opportunity to thank all you wonderful readers and visitors to this blog. Without you it would not be the popular place it is today. You guys are the reason I do this. I take so much pleasure in reviewing movies for you, including ones you may have missed. I am truly fortunate to have such a great group follow me.

Now I’d like to give you the opportunity to suggest movies for me to review. You can leave a comment at the end of this post and I will endeavour to watch the film and do a review, should it be one I haven’t already seen. If I’ve seen it I will happily review it. I can’t promise I’ll get round to every suggestion as I also have prior commitments, but I promise I’ll do my best. Once again, thank you so much. I hope you’ll continue on this journey with me.

Best wishes
JM
