1 review for Obi-Wan Kenobi #10

  1. Rated 4 out of 5

    The Revenge of the Sith version of Obi-Wan Kenobi has been no stranger to Hasbro collectors, with 9 distinct robeless figures in the 3 ¾” line (the 2005 deluxe figure in permanent robe is not pictured) and countless re-releases that have kept him in circulation since 2005, not to mention similar-looking figures from Attack of the Clones and The Clone Wars. Currently available in the limited articulation Saga Legends line and the 12” Heroes line, he’s also the second prequel-specific 6” figure in The Black Series.
    Obi-Wan easily could have been a great figure, and he comes close, but Hasbro didn’t quite stick the landing. Obi-Wan includes his lightsaber, a new sculpt with a gold-and-bronze-accented hilt that plugs into his belt and a pale blue removable blade that’s a few millimeters shorter than Luke’s. It’s clear at this point that the 6” line isn’t going to be generous with accessories, but there are several options that could have made this package more interesting – a soft goods robe, a Jedi Starfighter headset, Grievous’ blaster, a Magnaguard staff, a rebreather, alternate armored Clone Wars forearms – because as it is, it feels a little too light. There’s a little bit of painted weathering on the edges of the tunic that mimics the Mustafar battle damage, done so subtly that it’s effective but easy to miss. Obi-Wan’s eyebrows are sculpted in a stern, determined expression, but the paint on my sample missed the mark and makes him look neutral. It’s unfortunate, since the sculpt otherwise captures Ewan McGregor’s likeness very impressively. And the articulation is par for the course for this line, but it would have been nice if Obi-Wan were able to hold the lightsaber in more dynamic two-handed poses.
    In a wave with another tan-clad Jedi, Obi-Wan is an essential but not particularly exciting addition to The Black Series. He will look fantastic in duel setups with the upcoming Anakin Skywalker, and he’ll pair well with many other potential figures like General Grievous or Commander Cody. And since we know Hasbro loves re-releasing Obi-Wan, maybe they can take another crack at the paint and give us more accessories when those figures make it out.
