I think this is a cool figure and probably exists as a canny attempt to give collectors more Sith-like baddies. Funko is delivering more Knights of Ren than Hasbro so far - but hopefully Hasbro will continue the collection, and who knows - maybe Disney will give us a show about the Knights of Ren some day. (I would probably watch it.) Right now we're being given these figures with minimal background, allowing us to fill in the blanks - effectively making them like Boba Fett in the 1970s and 1980s. Maybe there's more to them - and maybe there never will be. Either way, the design and mystery will probably be served to separate us from our money for years to come, with this release as a decent enough place to start the process.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
