The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the next addition for the 2012 “Darth Maul” product line. We continue with Obi-Wan Kenobi (CW12) sporting an(other) all-new new sculpt in The Clone Wars line.
PROS: A far better likeness to the animated character model. The sculpt for the clothing is on par with the non-animated figures in terms of detail. The recycled climbing pack adds some fun factor back after loosing some articulation.
CONS: The lack of wrist and ankle articulation (especially the wrists) really effects the posing possibilities essential for Jedi figures. An odd/unnecessary “double dip” since Hasbro just released an all-new Obi-Wan last year. Too bad this new head sculpt won’t fit on the previous Obi-Wan body.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.
