Hasbro re-issues the Padawan Kenobi from 2009's The Legacy Collection and includes a commlink this time around. This figure could have been vastly improved by an updated head sculpt as the likeness to McGregor falls short. It's not as premium a Vintage Collection figure as we'd like it to be and one of the weaker releases of this assortment. If you're an opener and already have the '09 release, you're good with skipping this.
As we first reported in New York Comic-Con, Hasbro will be releasing 3 non-OT vehicles in Vintage style packaging for the January 30th launch. These include the AT-AP, V-19 Torrent Starfighter, and Obi-Wan Kenobi's Jedi Starfighter. The Hasbro site has these listed at $29.99 each.
Sideshow offers a nice glimpse at their upcoming "Desert Nomad" Obi-Wan Kenobi maquette for their 12 Days of Sideshow event. The piece looks absolutely stunning and detailed, further bridging the gap between ROTS McGregor and ANH Guiness.
Sideshow continues to tease us into submission as they preview the awesome, compelling, and soon to be released for pre-order 12" Boba Fett!
Hasbro corrected the first release of SL12 Obi-Wan Kenobi, the AOTC "you don't want to sell me death sticks" version from Saga 2003, to the intended and represented, not to mention much better done, TAC iteration from 2008. How do mix ups like these happen at the factory? We can only guess, but Hasbro may need to go home and rethink their life...err...quality control.
