Our pal Victoria sent us a picture of a new Saga Legends Obi-Wan Kenobi variation hitting stores now. Both figures share the same SKU, but different tools were employed to make this figure. The first release was a repack of the Attack of the Clones Outlander Club version, sold as part of the dark blue and gold carded "Saga" figures in late 2003.
