Check out the brand new trailer for Star Wars Rebels Season Two from NYCC and watch for the debut of season 2 next week on DisneyXD!
The Hollywood Reporter is, err, reporting that the World Premiere of The Force Awakens is set for December 14, 2015 in Los Angeles.
Look for an official announcement soon.
Hasbro has released images for some of their reveals from their NYCC Preview Party. There are a couple conspicuous absences but stay tuned for those soon, but until then check out the attached image gallery of Black Series 6″ figures, Titanium Vehicles and Micro Machines.
PROS: Hasbro completely nailed the sculpt for this figure. Every thing from the multiple textures used to simulate cloth to the proportions and the overall character likeness, Kylo Ren is one of the top figures released for the build-a-weapon assortment. The market for Kylo Ren seems to bear that out as he is in huge demand by collectors of this line. While not the most articulated version we’ll be getting, Kylo stands apart from other figures in the assortment(s) in that it does look like a “cheap figure”.
CONS: Obviously, the articulation will be a let down for some, but they can be comforted in the fact that we’ll have Black Series versions in both scales as alternatives. As for the build-a-weapon pack-in? To me, it kind of looks like a bear trap or torture device. In the end, it means nothing in terms of being in the film and really only serves as fodder for customizers or something to sit unused in a bag of misfit toys.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.
