If you look at Kylo Ren #45 [FOTD #2,454] this is pretty much that figure with some problems. Kylo Ren has the 2015 helmet with some divots created by the plastic insert - it doesn't look good. His ankles are looser, which is bad for displaying - sturdy ankle joints are incredibly important for ensuring a figure doesn't topple over on your shelf. The lightsaber hilt will not fit in or stay in the belt slot, at least on my sample.
On the bright side, the sculpt still looks good. The simple paint job is still perfectly fine, and he can hold his accessories in his fists nicely. I like the plastic cape which drapes over his shoulders nicely. Since the figure is molded in black and has elbow joints with a marvelous range, it's a pretty good skeleton on which to build a figure. With 26 points of articulation, it's totally fine but won't knock your socks off since you've probably got all the parts of this figure in your collection already.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from my pal Shannon who went to Disneyland's Galaxy's Edge in June.
