The great truism in geek culture is that toys do not lie, and often times give us our first or best look at new movie characters. While The Force Awakens trailer gave us a glimpse of these characters, this leaked image of some 6 inch figure prototypes gives us a clearer look at them…sort of. Check it out:
These come from a Chinese Star Wars forum and seem to show off some of the things Hasbro is working on for their six inch, The Black Series, line of toys (my favorite line-up so far in toy collectibles). While no names are given, clearly this looks like Rey with BB-8, Finn, Chewbacca (getting a new head sculpt with a previous body), and Kylo Ren. The trailer for The Force Awakens only showed Ren from behind, so this is really our first clear look at him from the front, which matches up nicely with previous descriptions of the character.
All I know is that I can’t wait to get my hands on new movie action figures. Being a massize Star Wars collector, it’s something I’m looking forward to a great deal. I love the six inch figures, and happy to see that they’ll continue with the new movie characters as well. What do you guys think of Kylo Ren’s look?
