Title: Kylo Ren Mask Black Series
Post by: sinkie on January 22, 2016, 08:27:01 AM
Has anyone bought and opened the Black Series Kylo Ren mask? Curious about dimensions and features and if it is worth the $85 before taxes.

I have both the mask from Disney store and the Black Series helmet.

If you wear glasses then the helmet is the better option.  I can't fit into the mask with my glasses on where the helmet has no problem.

The voice changer is better too on the helmet then the mask.  Not sure if they are different voice changer or because the helmet trapped my voice better?

The mask comes with a hood that is a bonus.

Cool, thanks! Since posting I found a couple youtube reviews and the voice changer does seem somewhat disappointing but the helmet looks really nice. Wasn't aware of the Disney one so thanks for pointing that out!

Good to know it fits an adult head comfortably.

Where have you seen the Black Series helmet in stores recently? I can't find it now that Christmas is over.

Yeah, online right now at walmart, slightly cheaper than TRU. I'll post in the provincials where I found it.

All in all, is it worth $80?

Not sure yet. Lots on the web about needing to tweak the voice changer, not very good for adults out of the box. Requires either changing it for another one (some guy said he got one at a Halloween store) or removing some pieces and reversing the microphone. But some are saying the mask itself is pretty nice for use as a cosplay or Halloween costume all on its own despite the voice changer. So if you're prepared to be less than wowed by that feature but still want a fairly nice Kylo full helmet/mask and have the cash? Also one guy said he's going to wear a ski mask with it to cover his neck which seems like a great, if not obvious in hindsight, idea. I have one, but have not opened it yet but probably will soon.

That's exactly what I needed to know. I plan to use it to revise my Halloween costume from last year, and it looks so good in that respect. Good to know I can wear it with glasses too. The voice changer is not a deal breaker for me either, so it looks like I'm sold!

Thanks for all your help! :D

And if anyone else needs further temptation, the Black Series Kylo Ren Helmet is on sale now at sears.ca for 63.99. That's the cheapest I've seen it yet.

How is that xcoser Kylo Ren costume BTW? I was eyeing that myself.

i love the xcoser costume its made very well and is the best you can get for the money, it does fit snug so if you go for it i would suggest to buy a size bigger then what size shirts you normally wear, the inner tunic longsleeve arms and chest are where it can get tight. i got mine off amazon.ca it was $175 with free shipping

Good to know, thanks! I usually do a tshirt in a large so I'll keep that in mind when I order.
Time to upgrade last year's Halloween costume!

Has anyone seen these kicking around lately, either in store or online? I kicked around the idea of getting one for too long and can't seem to track one down for a decent price. I'd like to get it before the Poe come out this fall to keep the line up to date.
