So we know a 6" Black Series version is coming but what about the 3.75" line, can we expect see 50 Kylo Ren figures just like Darth Maul did back in 99/00?

Who's up for a 3.75 Kylo Ren figure?

This guy/gal is going to be like Darth Maul figures were to TPM's release: it'll be everywhere and people will likely hoard them a hundred at a time in shopping carts like back in 1999. I'm only in on an articulated version: there's no sense in having a "warrior" figure like this end up with 5POA or some cruddy 'action' feature to ruin the aesthetics.

I personally am liking Capt. Phasma's overall look the more I see it, though; probably would be more likely to pick up that figure if I had to choose between the two...

The design's likeable enough for me to get even if he's 5poa, but he'd be the only one.

The lightsaber still sucks tho.

I'm not really sure about this character. If the 3.75" figures are only 5 POA, then I won't even Need to think about them. If they do make an SA 3.75" Version, then maybe, but I'll probabaly wait on this guy until I see the film.

Of course I will buy him. I actually like the light sabers myself. Something unique.

Does anybody else think that the top portion of Kylo Ren's mask is slightly evocative of the silver "racing stripes" on vintage Kenner packaging? I wonder if that's by design, subconscious or not.

I'm not really convinced about the character, but the saber doesn't bother me at all. You're right, it's something unique. I know each sabers has a different hilt, but we rarely get a good look at the hilts in the films anyway, so this is one that stands out in that sense.

while card is overall nice, the small character name is bad. but i guess the multi-language age suggestion is more important lol

Yeah...without the character name we wouldn't guess who the figure would be would we? Apart from the art work and see through bubble...lol

I think the point was, if this card represent the look of the line, the character names being so small and at the bottom of the card make it tough to locate. While everyone here already knows who kylo ren is, a parent or a kid might need to see the name, especially on lesser known characters.

Some fool bid and won that Kylo Ren.

"Look,I have it first! *rollseyes*
If he reviews it on YouTube, monetizes it, and gets 100k views for having the first Force Awakens figure... he will double his money.

Provided he is that smart.

It's not as centrally located as the TVC line but the name can be found. The figure and the art is most important and given how distinctive the characters are it shouldn't be a problem. If there are parents and relatives who are buying presents who aren't familiar with the characters then there may be an issue, maybe, but commonsense dictates you do some research beforehand (look up a picture) or ask a store worker. Even then, just take a couple of seconds to look for the name and once you get used to where the name is written your eyes will be drawn to that part of the card anyway for other SW figures. It's not like they're going to change the place were they write the name on every card.

The card reminds me of the Phantom menace action figures when the Phantom menace figures came when the movie was in theaters. Nice.

WOW $100 for a 5 POA. Great job on that, If you waited a month you could have bought 10 of him for the same amount

"COMBINE FOREST GEAR"

Snow Desert Jungle Space. Anyone?

first of all, i was being sarcastic, which doesnt come off well written on online forums. But now that you've suggested "ask a store employee".. i can't comment on store workers in the UK but here in the USA, some workers can't tell difference in a bar of soap and a tube of tooth paste because they don't look/smell like they ever used either one..."Welcome to WalMart" LOL (again sarcasm) second if cards are packed ful and randomly, the names on card, although in an idea location for thumbing through, would be hard to read when card/figs in front cast a shadow (no sarcasm)
I think the name and the age line could been reversed and name a bit larger..just saying.
