These images are awesome, and I have one suggestion for you that I think would take them to awesome+. Either gel your light to match the color of the lightsaber, or select the highlights and midtones on the surfaces of Kylo that face the saber and give them a red tint. It should be subtle, but perceptible. The direction of the lighting and black background implies that he's being lit by the lightsaber, but the cool white lighting sort of breaks the illusion IMO.

How does one "light" up a light Saber?

Created in post. The base is a soft-edged white shape with an outer glow, and also a hint of inner glow, the classical way of making fake neon signage in Photoshop. That gets you Episode IV lightsaber. You need to artistically embellish the shape and glow to taste if you're after the fiery look of the latest movies that BrantG has above. Using a drawing tablet helps for this.

Crude saber made just now from white rounded rect with 1-pixel feathered edge and red outer-glow layer style:

For my Kylo Ren, I just found some free brushes for Photoshop that "looked" appropriate for the effects on his saber. Then I just use the same technique on those layers that I use for my saber, so it all looks the same.
Lots of great free stuff on this site. http://www.brusheezy.c​om/ (external link)

Brant, do you have any more Hot Toys Star Wars figures? Please post more if you do. I was never a fan of the Sideshow brand of 1/6 Star Wars but the HT versions are insane looking. Love those HT Kylo Rens shots you provided.
