Obi Wan (11)

Good ol’ Obi-Wan Kenobi. The man was a hero of his time, a general in the brutal Clone Wars and the kind of Jedi you’d look up to in the darkest of times. Especially when said times involved leaving your freshly-amputated protégé to burn to death after a spectacular lightsaber battle. Yeesh, talk about going bat-Sith crazy. Made famous by the late Sir Alec Guinness, Obi-Wan Kenobi has always been an integral part of Star Wars. And now it’s time for the old man to finally get an eerily realistic figure based on his first appearance in Star Wars: A New Hope.

Standing at the usual Hot Toys height of around 30cm, Obi-Wan Kenobi packs his trademark lightsaber, robes and an elegant amount of distinguished facial hair. Just look at that sculpt! As for the rest of the important details, here’s the official list from Sideshow Collectibles:

  • Authentic and detailed likeness of Sir Alec Guinness as Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
  • Movie-accurate facial expression with detailed wrinkles, beard, and skin texture
  • Body with over 30 points of articulation
  • Approximately 30 cm tall
  • Six (6) pieces of newly sculpted interchangeable palms including:
    – One (1) pair of relaxed palms
    – One (1) pair of palms for holding lightsaber
    – One (1) right palm for holding lightsaber in alternative pose
    – One (1) gesturing left palm
  • Each piece of head sculpt is specially hand-painted

Costume:

  • One (1) brown-colored under-tunic
  • One (1) beige-colored tunic
  • One (1) brown-colored Jedi robe
  • One (1) brown-colored belt
  • One (1) pair of beige-colored pants
  • One (1) pair of brown leather-like boots

Weapons:

  • One (1) LED-lighted blue lightsaber (white light, battery operated)
  • One (1) lightsaber hilt

Obi-Wan will retail for around $219.99 when he arrives in the December 2015 to February 2016 period. If you practice really hard however, you might be able to Jedi mind trick one of these figures into your hands. Trust me, I’m trying right now, but I keep tricking myself into falling asleep.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
