    I will remember to never tell @NinjaRen to take his mask off. :D

    Seriously though, brilliant observation that Kylo kills anyone who belittles his mask. :eek:

    One thing bugged me though. Why have a helmet and leave the rest of him vulnerable? I would have liked to see some variant of plate armour. You know, like an actual knight. Ideally, I would like something that a New Republic soldier would blast themselves upon seeing. A nightmare made flesh. Not some boy in a mask.

    Because the helmet wasn't for protection, it was for intimidation.

    Okay, I would have liked this too. Especially as Supreme Leader.

    That was the whole point of Kylo though. A frightened and confused boy with power. That's a pretty dangerous combination if it's used correctly.

    Overall, I love the gobliny look of the mask and hood combo. Mask alone... eh, doesn't really do it for me.

    Driver is a fantastic actor, so it's always great to see his fave and hear his voice.

    I think the films did a really clever job of utilizing his look for narrative purposes. As @Anubis78 mentioned, masked Kylo is much more in control of situations, while unmasked he tends to let his rage and anxieties slip through. However, I'd also add that even in all his unbridled rage, unmasked Kylo is also a lot more humanized than masked.

    Agree. How do I put a like to your post?

    I prefer Kylo Ren without mask but I recognize that Kylo was eager to be the next Darth Vader, so it is fair that he would wear a mask.

    It's been a while since I've joined the forums, but I believe you'll get the ability to provide ratings on posts after you've been around and posting for just a bit longer. Extra security against bots and sock accounts, I'd assume.

    No mask for me as it gives Kylo Ren’s character much more depth than Darth Vader. I can live with the mask for action scenes but the dramatic scenes with Rey a much better without a mask.

    What about a mask that covers half his face? This coupled with clothes of tight synthetic material, leather straps, studs and chains? I have a thing for girls (and twinks) in gas masks.

    I voted for Kylo with the mask but I like him both ways.

    With the mask on my favorite is the one from TFA. When he is the hood on.

    And unmasked is the one from TLJ with that big scar on his face.

    I think his mask makes him look more ominous and scary. That appeal can looks very frightening for the enemies during a battle. Also, the mask allows him to have that voice which also is frightening. All in all, the mask of Kylo Ren, in my opinion, works better a looks a little better rather than his own face.

    I wish we gotten more Ben Solo, because Adam Driver's character portrayal was so nuanced.

    This. I would've loved the rage scene in TFA without the mask.

    Man, this would have been great! I'm still disappointed that some of the shots featuring masked Kylo in TROS wasn't even Adam Driver...

    In this fight for example-

    IMO you can actually tell, because the stunt man is shorter and more slim than Driver.

    It's pretty common do have this, furthermore Driver probably had to shoot other stuff too.
