One of the best things I did over the Christmas holidays was to go out and see Star Wars, The Force Awakens with my son Will and my young grandson Liam.
I am a huge Star Wars fan and the movie was everything I had hoped for. It reminded me so much of the excitement I experienced the first time I saw the original Star Wars film in 1977 as a teenager.
My 12 year old grandson was so excited to see it! We watched it in 3D and he got to watch it wearing the special Kylo Ren 3D glasses that I had bought for him. He looked pretty cool!
Kylo Ren Lego Buildable Figure
Luckily a lot of Liam’s aunts and uncles give him money for Christmas and so after Christmas Liam went shopping and bought his very own Kylo Ren lego set.
He says that it wasn’t too hard to build and it took him about 20 minutes or so. Now he does have a lot of Lego experience and has built huge sets, so it’s possible that he is faster than normal.
He did a great job and his Dad even helped him record it for his You Tube channel.
That’s right, my grandson has his own you tube channel!
You can see him put together this LEGO Star Wars Kylo Ren right here (looking adorable in his Kylo Ren glasses )!

The Ultimate Kylo Ren Lego – Kylo Ren’s Command Shuttle
Now, I have to say that this was a pretty intimidating ship in the movie.
Not only did it look threatening but if you saw this ship coming, you just knew there was going to be a battle and lives lost.
This Kylo Ren Lego set has 6 First Order minifigures (no good guys in this bunch!), including the Kylo Ren Lego minifigure of course. The set features spring loaded shooters and detachable weapon bays.
It’s a large build with over 1000 pieces. With the Shuttle wings extended it is 15 inches high. With a recommended age range of 9-14, it’s the perfect age range for my grandson who just turned 12.
Other Kylo Ren Merchandise
I am also a huge fan of Funko Pop collectible figures and of course it was no surprise to see a full line of all the new Star Wars The Force Awakens Funko Pop characters to choose from.
The Kylo Ren Funko Pop figure was released in both a hooded and a non hooded version. The one shown here is the Hooded Kylo Ren.
I was not able to find a Kylo Ren Funko Pop when I went out looking but it could have been just my unlucky day. There were lots of Storm Troopers and some of the other characters. I suspect that Kylo Ren and BB-8 might become hard to find.
With the way the movie ended we will be seeing Kylo Ren again. I’m sure there will be a lot more great Kylo Ren merchandise to be had!
