Possible Kylo Ren Figure Leaked?

Hmmm

I'm a tiny bit skeptical because I ran a search on eBay for any leaks last night.  Most of what came up were the SDCC exclusive First Order Stormtroopers and some Hot Wheels.  But one item that came up was a custom Kylo Ren.

The guy who posted this on Twitter seems to think that it might be a 6" Black Series Kylo Ren.

First Kylo, now Finn?

Like 'scum mentioned - both Kylo and Finn seem to match up to the prototypes...  might just be the real thing...  or customs.  no guarantees. :-\

If they are real, I guess that ups the odds we see a 6" TFA preview wave on Force Friday.

Yeah, still not sold on if those are the real deal or customs. Finn looks pretty good from the neck down but that face does not look right somehow. Almost like a Ken Doll...too smooth and generic. The Kylo shots are so close up that it looks a little crude, but maybe it comes off better at a distance.

I definitely think we will see the ones they showed off as prototypes come FF. That could be almost a wave itself, except they are coming 6 per now, so maybe they will double up on a few of them or BB8 gets his own box and the Stormtrooper is #6. There are at least 10-11 figures beyond that which have been strongly rumored or teased, so if they wanted to they could crank out another wave or two and have multiple waves on the shelf on 9/4. That's kind of what I'm hoping for anyway.

If it's cusrom, someone is pretty adept at sculpting and has an eye for detail.

I really did not need another chewbacca that looks that close to the original. At least he could come with a new coat or something.  :D

The leaks continue!  This Facebook Page has boxed pics (not the best pics, but pics nonetheless) of the first five 6" TFA figures -

01 - Finn (Jakku)
02 - Rey (Jakku) & BB-8
03 - Kylo Ren
04 - First Order Stormtrooper
05 - Chewbacca

Nice to see BB-8 as a pack-in since I know a lot of folks were not wanting to plunk down $22 for the little guy by himself...

Just saw the pics...nice, very nice. I am all in as expected. Good news on BB-8 too.

If the rumor is that we will see multiple waves come FF, hopefully we get a look at the rest tomorrow or soonish. Figure it will be the usual suspects like Poe, Phasma, etc but the Tie Pilot and Flametrooper could be awesome.

The specific nature of both Finn and Rey as Jakku versions leads you to conclude that there are more versions in the works.  Finn in his First Order Stormtrooper armor seems very likely.  As for Rey?  Who knows.
