I also have faith that we'll get a "living" version of the Dagobah Spirit Ben to cover my plastic cloak/hood down Ben needs, so that may be helping improve my opinion on the VOTC one.
Uh... no one has addressed my post over in the Dagobah thread yet, so I'll go ahead and post it here in hopes of getting your opinion Jared...
Forgive my ignorance, but I've got a question for you guys...
I've been vocal in my desire to get an Non-Spirit Ben figure, but I may already have one, for it seems that Spirit Ben Kenobi (Dagobah) is... a kitbashed/rehash.
While goofing around with Ben last night, I discovered that the date stamp on his foot reads "2000", and to top it off he has a little tiny hole in his belt just like the PotJ Ben does. After comparing for a bit, I feel I can sefely say that Spirit Ben's legs, lower body, and torso are all identical to the PotJ version!
I think that his head may be recycled from the old Lays Spirit Obi-Wan as well. As near as I can tell, only the arms and cloak are new... but that may be only because we havn't figured out where they came from yet.
So, is he kitbashed? Or am I just crazy?
