Commentary: Hasbro has made a few versions of Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Galactic Heroes line, specifically three unique versions based on the original trilogy. One has a hood up, the other is this one, and there's also a spirit repaint of this one. This particular figure is meant to represent the character in the Cantina sequence, and he s ports limited arm articulation-- and that's it. The detail is about what you'd come to expect from this line, and the likeness is pretty obviously that of Obi-Wan Kenobi. With big hands and a huge head, it's a fairly pleasant looking take on the character from the movies, and the added arm articulation makes it a little more fun to futz with than other figures in the line. If you get this one, it'll be right at home on top of your computer monitor.
Collector's Notes: This one has popped up in at least one other multipack, and he seems to be in constant rotation at retail. As such, you should have little to no trouble getting one, and I'd say you should get one. It's probably the best figure in this line based on old Ben.
