Nerdversity Reviews: Tesco Star Wars Glasses (Kylo Ren)

Aside from the Stormtrooper edition glasses, Tesco also released a Kylo Ren pair. So lets get into it:

The case it comes in is exactly the same, so no point going over that again. The glasses themselves are almost the same. They are the same black plastic frames, metal arms and plastic ends. However, the difference here is that it has a small graphic on the inside of the arm of Kylo Ren with the phrase "RULE THE GALAXY" next to it. The upper and lower edges of the frames are red.

These glasses are male frames. I've yet to see if Tesco also released female versions of these frames. The frames themselves are clearly inspired by Kylo Ren and his lightsaber. The frames are the same as the others, thicker, geek chic style.

Here's yours truly wearing them. Again, these are fitted, prescription lenses. The frames are off the shelf. They fit perfectly. I've had no slipping, rubbing or pinching from them. If you are a Tesco Opticians customer and your branch does sell them, they might be worth picking up, though the £65 price tag might be enough to turn some people away.
