6” Obi-Wan Kenobi (Padawan) Loses His Hands

Collectors are starting to receive their wave 21 cases of 6” Black Series figures which includes the Obi-Wan Kenobi (Padawan) figure first offered as a Star Wars Celebration exclusive. Collector Matt Z. noticed upon opening the Obi-Wan that he doesn’t include either of the extra hand accessories from the exclusive, despite Hasbro Pulse website showing the two-figures outstretched hand in one of the loose photos.

You may recall a similar solicitation imagery mix-up with the retail 6” Bespin Han Solo being shown with the pointer figure hand which was only available in last year’s convention  exclusive Exogorth Escape Set.

Bummer, I guess that will make the SWCC Version all that more desirable.

Update: TVC Archive Edition Reaches Another Stretch Goal

We’ve reached our $125k stretch goal milestone and are moving on to a stretch goal that’s close to our hearts. At $150,000 all book backers will receive a recreation of the reverse-side of Kenner’s 1984 Star Wars is Forever mail-away poster (shown above) using Hasbro’s The Vintage Collection action figures and vehicles. The poster will be arranged and photographed by its original creator, Kim Simmons. Kim was the principal Star Wars photographer for Kenner between 1981 – 2000 and if you own any classic Kenner items, it’s a sure bet his photography is featured on it.

Incredibly, Kim has confirmed he still has some of the original elements he used in the 1984 poster and they’ll be included in his TVC recreation! The 18×22-inch poster comes folded in a mailer envelope, like the original.

To back the Vintage Collection Archive Edition book, hit up Blue Milk’s Kickstarter page.

Update: new details added for the $175,000 stretch goal

Rumor Report: Black Series Shared Exclusive Fallen Order Figure?

While we don’t have any official confirmation (we rarely do), we have received a report that the 6″ Black Series figure available with the Jedi: Fallen Order bundle through GameStop may also be available via Galaxy’s Edge/Disney Parks/Shop Disney making this figure more of a shared exclusive. Again, this is just a rumor and I’ll be looking for more corroboration and will update when possible.
