First Look at Kylo Ren's Helmet in Star Wars: The Force Awakens
At the live toy unboxing event last night, Star Wars revealed the full helmet of new villain Kylo Ren, this time without his signature hood:

As you can see, the Kylo Ren toy shows that the character's helmet is essentially a modified version of Darth Vader's. This would seem derivative, except that Kylo has already been described as a Darth Vader fanatic. Whether that in itself will seem derivative in the movie remains to be seen, but the costume looks pretty intimidating, so it should be a great throwback for Star Wars fans.

Adam Driver's Kylo Ren is also featured prominently in a new banner for The Force Awakens, along with Gwendoline Christie's Captain Phasma and Domhnall Gleeson's General Hux:

It will be strange to see perpetual good guy Gleeson play a villain, but it's even more eerie to see the legion of First Order soldiers. If you want to freak your viewers out a little, you can't go wrong with a little Nazi imagery.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters on December 18.
