First Look on Meisho Movie Realization Samurai Kylo Ren

No comments
The Star Wars Shogunate keeps on expanding!

After the announcement of the First Order Ashigaru Stormtrooper comes one of the most awaited action figures in Bandai's Star Wars Meisho Movie Realization toy line! Samurai Kylo Ren is now ready for pre-order!

Below is the full gallery:

There are a lot of awesome things in this action figure's model and here are some of those that we really like:

Breastplate - the smooth surface in the pitch black armor is simplicity matched with elegance worthy of a young warrior.

Half-cape - comparing with the Samurai Taisho Darth Vader and Samurai Taisho Darth Vader Death Star armor, Kylo Ren's half-cape says makes it a unique design for the samurai figures. Though both are the executioners of the Emperors of their time, making a half-cape for Kylo Ren brands him as someone distinct from Vader, and we like it.

Flip-flops - We really dig it! This footwear has an ancient Japan vibe in them.

With all the above, there's just one thing that we don't like with this figure, and that is the sword. Since Bandai is imagining Star Wars characters as samurais and ashigarus, Kylo Ren's sword is a bit off. What we're expecting here is a katana and what we get is a sword, which is reminiscent of knights in the West.

Still, the Samurai Kylo Ren is a must have! For pre-orders, you may want to contact your local hobby store or your favorite toy stores online.
