The Galaxy Of Adventures line is dead, but Hasbro developed a couple of final waves of figures for the 2020 Star Wars toy line before calling it quits. As with any assortment of action figures, there are bound to be some straight repacks. Supreme Leader Kylo Ren is one of them. With just a few slight paint operation differences, the figure is essentially the same as its original release. Supreme Leader Kylo Ren was part of the first wave of the Galaxy Of Adventures 5” figure line, and like all the others so far, the figure impresses. Based on what the action figure presents to collectors, there are some changes to Kylo Ren’s helmet that we didn’t expect to see. There are red “cracked” lines throughout it, enhancing the red lightsaber the figure wields. Supreme Leader Kylo Ren also comes with a removable molded cloak that frames the figure’s body like a glove. Movement is completely inhibited when worn, but we think it is meant to be a statement than anything else. So, present the figure in your collection initially with the cloak on, and then quickly remove it when you’re battling enemies or frenemies like Rey. Supreme Leader Kylo Ren works well in the Galaxy Of Adventures line, and it makes sense why Hasbro decided to carry the figure forward in the new assortment.

The Galaxy Of Adventures line had taken a turn for the better when it increased its scale, but we’d be lying if we said we wouldn’t want to see these all-new sculpts done up in 3.75” scale instead. While we’re not super-excited to see a new scale of figures introduced into the Star Wars toy line, we have to admit that these figures turned out exquisitely, and they’re already some of our most-favorite releases from Hasbro in years. We hope that Hasbro takes the line into some uncomfortable routes and thinks outside of the box. Hasbro added a mix of characters from across the Star Wars timeline, but it’s going to be the Original Trilogy characters like Chewbacca and Darth Vader that will show collectors what Hasbro can accomplish, creating interest in longtime fans. We hope more “old school” Original Trilogy characters we’ll soon be on tap for this line. Regardless, the focus is on new Star Wars Entertainment, and we’re going to see characters like Rey and Supreme Leader Kylo Ren, so fans in the line. Hasbro already committed to focusing on some characters from The Clone Wars in this line as well. And let’s not forget that they ensured they added Boba Fett to the line. It’s a shame, however, that they glossed over all of The Mandalorian characters.

Hasbro did a fantastic job of translating Supreme Leader Kylo Ren’s unique characteristics into an animated style. From the lean body frame to the battle-damaged helmet, Hasbro gave us a lot to appreciate with this figure. Hasbro sometimes struggles with human features every once in a while, so they took that risk out of the picture here by giving Supreme Leader Kylo Ren a helmeted portrait. The rest of Supreme Leader Kylo Ren turned out well too. The outfit hasn’t changed much throughout the years, and they ensured they remained faithful to this character, the outfit, and the accessories. Supreme Leader Kylo Ren comes with his signature lightsaber and a removable molded cloak for accessories. Hasbro designed his hands to accommodate the lit lightsaber with a two-hand grip. It’s nice to see this applied to a kids’ line. And although the molded cloak inhibits the figure’s movement, it provides an iteration of Supreme Leader Kylo Ren that borders on mysterious as well as threatening. Overall, Supreme Leader Kylo Ren is another excellent release in the Galaxy Of Adventures line and a wise repack. The MSRP is $9.99, and the figure comes with 23 points of articulation.
