PROS: For fans of The Clone Wars series, but not particularly the action figures due to their design aesthetic, Hasbro retools Obi-Wan’s early look in the series in “realistic” style. The translation works very well here as the all-new figure is faithful to that earlier design while maintaining the real world appearance of the clone armor and features a great portrait of Ewan McGregor as Kenobi. The articulation is solid and the weathered deco is something we’ve missed on many later run Clone Wars figures.
CONS: Honestly, I thought I would like this figure more than I do, but it’s probably not too surprising considering the glut of releases this version had in the animated Clone Wars line. It also feels that we were shorted an accessory or something as he only includes his basic lightsaber and hilt. Like others from this last wave, limited availability coupled with an above MSRP price through online outlets may be the sticking point for some collectors.
